Job Description

A well-known tech company in Scotland is looking for a Senior JavaScript Engineer to join the team. They are very much one of Edinburgh’s tech success stories and are about to start off another exciting period of growth.

They’re looking for a Senior JavaScript Engineer to work in a team that gets exposure to every part of one of their core products which has a very modern tech stack. The role has come about from an internal promotion and with that they’re looking for someone that is at a very senior level/someone that will be able to get up to speed pretty quickly. As a company they’re very product-driven and work with the most up to date engineering principles and standards.

What will I be doing?

You’ll be expected to contribute across the full stack which includes Front End, Mobile, Back End, DevOps and Cloud. This is a really interesting role in that this team doesn’t just work on one part of the product, the team work across different teams, helping them with lots of different things. One example of this is their plan to move their Front End technologies into using a unified logic across all platforms.

The have one code base for the product you’d be working on which includes the following tech: JavaScript, TypeScript, React, React Native, Node.js, AWS and more. They’re looking for someone that is an expert Front End Engineer that is keen to upskill in Back End and Cloud technologies. If you have experience of this already, that’d obviously be ideal. The role will initially be much more Front End focused but this will change over time. It’s a role that you’ll be able to gain exposure into lots of different areas with lots of modern tech.

The company have a great culture of learning so there will be lots of opportunity to upskill in different areas and move into other teams, which makes it an excellent place for career progression.

Who am I?

You should be an experienced Senior Software Engineer that’s excited about working with the most modern technologies. Although they’ve already scaled up as a company, they’ve very much managed to keep the feel of a young tech company on the rise and certainly don’t have boring corporate processes in place.

Who will I be working with?

Their engineering teams’ range in size but normally range from 4-8 Engineers. You’ll also collaborate with Designers, Product people and Testers. The teams work very collaboratively and expect everyone in the team to get involved in technical discussions, so hopefully that is something you’re used to.

Where will I be based and will be doing?

The company are HQ’d in Edinburgh and would be expected to be in the office once or twice per week as a minimum. The rest of the time you can work remotely.

Their package includes a strong salary on offer up to 73,000 (potentially more for exceptional applicants), excellent bonuses, private medical and much more.

If you’re a Senior JavaScript Engineer that wants to work for one of Scotland’s most successful tech companies, then please apply and/or get in touch with Jack Steven at Cathcart Technology.
