Software Engineer ( Java )

Edinburgh | Salary negotiable | Permanent

World-Class Technology Company founded in Edinburgh are looking for a skilled Software Engineer, with a couple years of Java experience, to join one of their core Agile Squads. Hybrid Working, Modern Tech and great culture on offer.

They've been operating now for well-over ten years and are one of the market leaders within their field - unlike most organisations right now, they're actually going through a period of growth as they're scaling up several of their squads, so they're in a great place.

You'll be joining an Edinburgh based squad of circa six Software Engineers, where you'll be responsible for developing one of the company's core market-leading products. You'll largely work in the backend with Java and AWS, but an appreciation for frontend within this team would be well suited. Although this squad is well-established there is still lots of opportunities to work on greenfield projects too - it's a really innovative and technically challenging environment.

Within this squad, and all squads at the business, they place a really strong focus on high coding standards and best practices so are looking for someone that has worked in this kind of environment before.

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

** Java

** Java Frameworks (Ideally SpringBoot)

** Cloud Services (AWS, Azure or GCP)

** Microservices

The following experience is highly desirable;

** DevOps Tools (Docker, Kubernetes)

** Working with Distributed Systems

They've got custom-built offices in central Edinburgh, which includes pool tables, games consoles, even their own Gym and much more. They do support hybrid working here and would hope people can work in the office ideally 1-2 days per week, but they do have some flex on this.

In return they're able to offer a strong salary package (more than happy to provide more info on this prior to application) and a really strong benefits package; which includes multiple bonuses and uncapped holidays.

This is a really unique opportunity to join an already well-established organisation, that are entering a really exciting period of growth. If you're keen to find out more, please apply or drop Doug Paget a message via Linkedin.

Our clients


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

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’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

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

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

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

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

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

Software Engineer – Manchester

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

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
