Software Engineer ( TypeScript )

Edinburgh | £50,000 - £70,000 | Permanent

Published: 06.02.24 Ref: BBBH44098_1707229520

A really cool tech company in Edinburgh City Centre is looking for a Front End focused TypeScript Engineer. The company work on unique, ground-breaking products. This particular role is within their team and product that centres around bringing data to life, meaning that data is at the forefront of everything that they do. The way that they transform complex ideas into engaging and visually appealing products really is awesome!

They are looking for someone that has strong TypeScript experience - although the product is very front-end focused, they operate in a very strong engineering environment and look for people that have worked in heavy engineering environments. The role would suit someone that comes from a Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics or any other strong technical background as the stuff they are working on is pretty complex. This may also suit Engineers that are passionate about / have experience in 2D & 3D technologies as this a major part of the role.

The rest of the tech they work with includes React, WebGL, GLSL and much more.

For this particular team, they expect people to be very accomplished problem solvers. As mentioned, the company work on very complex problems, most of which have never been tackled before so it takes a certain type of mind to tackle these. The team are working on a lot of re-architecture at the moment which you'll be heavily involved in. I've had the luxury of seeing demos of their products and they are so engaging.

As well as being a good problem solver, this would suit someone that is used to having high levels of autonomy and accountability. They also love people that aren't afraid to put their own ideas forward.

As mentioned, they're based in Edinburgh City Centre and expect people to be in the office 3 days per week as a minimum. This is non-negotiable as they find 3 days in the office is highly beneficial due to the nature of the products they're building - they're a super collaborative as a team and expect any newcomers to buy into this. The salary on offer for the role is up to £70,000 with potential to go above this for the right person.

If you have a genuine passion for creating unique product, then please apply and/or get in touch with Jack Steven at Cathcart Technology.

Our clients


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

Software Developer – Northampton

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Data Scientist – Manchester

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 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

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

Software Engineer – 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
