Highly successful Med-Tech organisation, with a name known around the world, are looking for an ambitious Software Engineer (ideally with prior knowledge of C++) to join one of their core engineering squads - hybrid in Edinburgh or remote working in UK on offer.

They've been operating for 20+ years now, and work on a global scale - their products are used in a lot of medical / healthcare settings. They describe themselves as a really innovative organisation, as they're continually looking for new ways to improve and extend their offerings - this squad also gets involved in some prototyping projects.

The squad has circa five Software Engineers, that's really rich with commercial experience, and they work in a really interesting product function within the organisation. They've currently got two main products they largely focus on; a large-scale C++ product and a brand-new web-based product written in TypeScript. You'll find yourself working on both of these - so they're looking for someone that is happy to pick up the tech needed.

You'll ideally have experience with most of the following;

** C++ (non-embedded)

** JavaScript / TypeScript

** Working in a Windows or Linux environment

Experience with the following is highly desirable;

** Modern JavaScript frameworks (Angular, ReactJS or VueJS)

** Docker

** Experience working in an R&D Setting

They've got a great reputation within the industry and are known for really looking after their employees which is highlighted with their incredibly strong retention rate. Short stints are highly unusual here as many Engineers have been with the business for 5 to 20 years.

Their office is based in central Edinburgh, and they support both Hybrid and fully remote working (from within the UK) - they're also happy to discuss flexible working too. The squad do occasional meetups every couple of months for team building (also optional).

In return they're able to offer a salary from £30k to £50k (could be scope for more if someone impressed) on top of a fairly competitive benefits package.

Our clients


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

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

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

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

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

Software Developer – Northampton

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

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

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

Software Engineer – Manchester

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

Data Scientist – Manchester

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.

Software Developer – 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

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

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

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

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.
