A Scottish SaaS Organisation are looking for a skilled Senior / Software Developer (who's keen to work with or learn Ruby) to join their established Dev Team, on a fully remote basis in the UK. Opportunity to with a modern tech stack, alongside some really strong Developers in a very rewarding environment.

The company are well-established (they've been running for over 10 years) and have been going through a period of growth for the past few years now - they have recently brought in some really high-profile clients and are now recognised as one of the leaders in their field.

Their development team currently works fully remote and they are offering this long-term (providing you are based in the UK - however they do have a preference for central Scotland). Currently the Development team is 35 strong, boasting Back-End, Front-End, Full Stack Developers, DevOps Engineers, Data Engineers and Product Managers - it's a really established environment.

The team enjoy working with a really modern tech stack (Ruby on Rails, React/Redux, NodeJS, Azure, Docker and Kubernetes). They're also a Scrum team that truly embody best practices from TDD, BDD and DevOps.

Although experience with Ruby is pretty handy, they are open to Developers that have worked with other languages (Python, Java, Perl, Elixir, JavaScript etc). As they've got multiple Senior Developers with several years of Ruby experience - so it's a great learning environment to anyone wanting to join. They also have a good training budget for anyone joining to help get you up to speed.

Ideally, you'll have;

** Experience with Ruby OR years of commercial experience with other programming languages

** Database Skills; SQL & NoSQL

** Good Linux / Unix skills

** Experience with cloud services (Azure, AWS or GCP)

Experience with the following is highly desirable;

** Docker / Kubernetes

** HTML, CSS and JavaScript

** Working in a data driven environment

Their platform supports research (and is incredibly data focused) - with tangible benefits to healthcare / medicine and very relevant to worldwide events as of late. Working here you will know that all your efforts are making a really positive impact globally.

In return the company are offering a competitive salary with good benefits (more than happy to discuss this in detail upfront) - also they offer 100% remote working.

If you think you're up to the challenge and enjoy working in a technically demanding, but yet really rewarding environment please apply and / or drop Douglas Paget at Cathcart Technology a message through Linkedin.

Our clients


THE BEST test recruiter I’ve had the pleasure of working with, from start to finish. She provided me with training resources and is an organiser and participant in testing events. She really has taken the time to fully understand the testing principles.

Test Analyst – Aberdeen

He is the most honest, thorough and experienced recruitment consultant I have ever dealt with. If he can’t help you, he’ll tell you rather than spinning a yarn and putting you forward for jobs that aren’t suitable.

Technical Author – Edinburgh

He stood out in a world of poorly informed, unreliable and frankly annoying recruiters as a breath of fresh air.

Data Scientist – Manchester

I’ve never written a recommendation for a recruiter before, so it must show how impressed I am!

Software Developer – Northampton

He goes out of his way to ensure you are prepared for your interview and I particularly appreciated his professional no nonsense approach to working with me to find a new position.

Infrastructure Architect – Glasgow

Compared to other recruiters I have worked with she seemed genuinely interested in helping me with my job search rather than just fulfilling quotas.

Software Developer – Lincoln

It was a breath of fresh air – She is professional and approachable and will be there to help you every step of the way. Other recruiters give you the hard sell and the ‘best friend routine’ to get you on board and then just leave you guessing, but not here… She’s the real deal

Solutions Architect – Glasgow

She even was able to help get a firmer offer as I was offered two roles on the same day. I felt she went over and above to get the best offer she could for me without selling myself short.

QA Engineer – Glasgow

I can say with total sincerity I’ve never dealt with a more professional, knowledgeable and personable recruitment firm in fifteen years of contracting. They helped my wife and I relocate to Edinburgh with our five month old son and it’s in no small part to their tips and recommendations that we’ve settled in so quickly.

Transformation Consultant – Leeds

Equal parts friendly and professional, never once coming across as simply going through the motions and made the whole thing as painless as possible for all parties

Software Developer – Glasgow

Absolutely fantastic throughout my interview process, and I cannot recommend him highly enough! First of all, he is an absolutely brilliant communicator and extremely reliable. On top of all of his brilliant recruitment skills, it was amazing to see how genuinely excited he was for me when I received my offer. This truly conveyed to me how much he cares about his clients.

Software Engineer – Edinburgh

A friend looking after me, that’s how I felt. His friendly character made the whole process way easier and enjoyable, he also managed to get me one of the most interesting work opportunities. I’m really glad our paths have crossed.

Software Engineer - Edinburgh

She was friendly, communicative and informative, talked me through the process and gave me good advice at every stage.

Software Engineer – Manchester

Never have a I met a recruiter like him, who embeds himself in the community so thoroughly in a way that could only be genuine. From our conversations, he has shown an understanding of the industry I would expect from a local CTO.

MI Analyst – Bolton

I have had dealings with the majority of recruitment agencies in this country and beyond. He really stands out from the crowd and the IT industry would benefit from more people like him.
