This is not a typical software engineering advert…

You will need to be someone that is focussed on solving a problem, rather than throwing the latest and greatest technology at the issue and hope it fixes it. So, whether you call yourself a software engineer, solutions designer, Fullstack developer, tech lead, principal etc. It does not really matter; you will be someone who truly is a natural problem solver!!

So, who is the company? 

They have an elite team of 20 techies who have built a world class enterprise platform used by hundreds of thousands of users daily, from magic circle law firms, world-recognised tech organisations and everything in between. The platform you will be working on is critical to the business’ using it, if anything goes wrong £millions could be lost within a matter of minutes. It combined automation, AI, machine learning and human interference. 

What is the role? 

If there was a job title on it, it would have to be Senior Software Engineer. But as mentioned in my opening paragraph many different titles could fit the profile. 

To quote the CTO: “We need a lateral thinker and solutions expert”

As a ‘senior software engineer’ you will be maintaining, building, designing additional features and applications for the main SaaS style platform. You will have to deal with real complex solutions and clients that need specific requirements, that need someone who is a logical thinker. You will take a step back, analyse the problem, create the solution and be able to build it. 

What tech is needed?

As you have gathered by now, our client needs people who can provide solutions, so ticking every single technical box isn’t required. I have listed below some of the tech stack they currently use:

  • .Net Core 
  • Microsoft alternate solutions like Nancy
  • Messaging queues – RabbitMQ, AmazonMQ, Kafka etc. 
  • Fullstack isn’t necessary but they do use React, Knockout, Vue etc. 
  • Cloud isn’t used as heavily as some business but any Azure deployment experience would be great
  • Any containerisation experience with Docker, Kubernetes would be great. 

What do you get in return?

  • For this, the salary on offer is up to £90,000 basic. 
  • BUPA Healthcare, pension, holiday scheme, etc.
  • Work environment, which has meant they have only lost 2 people in 3 years. They treat their staff incredibly well.
