TypeScript Engineer

TypeScript Engineer

Edinburgh | £40,000 - £75,000 | Permanent

Published: 15.03.23 Ref: BBBH39465_1678875936

A really cool tech company in Edinburgh City Centre is looking for TypeScript Engineers to join the team. The company work on unique, ground-breaking products across varied industries such as history, literature, science, education, music and more. They pride themselves on 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!

Like everything else with the company, their office is really impressive and is based close to Waverley station, making the offices really accessible by tram and bus.

They're ideally looking for TypeScript skills but would consider people with strong JavaScript skills as well. Once onboard, you'll have the opportunity to work with ES6, JavaScript, TypeScript, React, React Native, PostgreSQL and GraphQL, WebGL and GLSL.

Of course, someone with the experience of that full tech stack would be nice, but they are happy to welcome Engineers from different technical backgrounds as long as you're passionate to learn new things. They aren't too fussy about a specific career path either - an Engineer with some of the tech stack and broad interests will do well here!

Looking past the technical side of the role, you should be used to having high levels of autonomy and accountability - and they love people that aren't afraid to put their own ideas forward. If you are a Senior Engineer, then you should have experience or be capable of mentoring other team members.

The salary on offer for the role ranges from £40,000 up to circa £75,000 depending on experience. Due to the collaborative nature of their work, the team goes in 3 times per week and works remotely twice per week - you can obviously go in more than this if you enjoy going into the office. As previously mentioned, the office is really impressive and is kitted out with Macbooks, 4K Screens etc, so it's a very enjoyable place to work.

If you have a genuine passion for creating unique products and want to work for one of the coolest tech companies in Edinburgh, then please apply or get in touch with Jack Steven at Cathcart Technology.

Our clients


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Data Scientist – Manchester

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

Software Engineer – 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

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

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
