A newly acquired SaaS organisation based in the UK are looking for an additional Senior / Software Engineer (ideally with strong experience using Python or ReactJS ) to join their growing team - Fully Remote working on offer.

They've been operating for a couple of years now, but have already made a pretty big mark on the scene - they've recently been acquired by a global MedTech organisation, so now have the financial backing of a powerhouse.

Their technical function currently sits at circa four strong (Engineering Manager, Lead and a couple of Engineers) - but they're really looking to grow over the next few years, as they've got big expansion plans. Currently, they're looking for an additional Engineer for the team, as they've got a large volume of work planned for 23/24.

Their product is UK based and widely used in Healthcare, with tangible links to the NHS. With the recent acquisition they are now looking to re-write a lot of the product (and start to build others) with a more modern tech stack; Python, AWS, ReactJS + TypeScript - Something you will be heavily involved in. All products will be built to scale and follow a DevOps model, they will be placing a really strong importance on best practices here - so working in a similar environment will stand you in good stead.

You'll ideally have good experience with most of the following:

** Python

** AWS

** HTML, CSS and JavaScript (ideally ReactJS)

** Databases (ideally SQL Server)

** Working in a Product environment

The following experience is highly desirable;

** DevOps tools (Docker, Kubernetes, Terraform)

** Integrations

** Software Architecture

The team describe themselves as a friendly and collaborative squad, so are ideally looking for a similar mould. Although the work is done 100% remotely it's crucial to them no-one feels isolated here as the team stay very well connected through many channels. Additionally, every so often they will try to get the team together for some team-bonding events (Fully paid for and of course not enforced).

The salary on offer stretches from £80k to £120k, for the right individual. They also offer pension, private medical, bonuses and company stocks - it's a really strong package. Additionally, they support fully remote working so you can work freely from anywhere in the UK - with no office commitment at all.

If you're interested, please apply and / or get in touch with Doug Paget at Cathcart Technology.

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

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 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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Software Engineer – Manchester

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

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

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
