Wanted: Above average senior developer (10+ years experience) to join a small team. Excellent salary and benefits and great work / life balance.

You are here to write code, not waste time in meetings. They are a small but well resourced and connected startup with a focus on getting things done. They are disrupting a major global industry (really), they have real paying clients & a real opportunity. Fast but considered iteration on a unique and successful product. They are still small enough that a successful applicant will become a core member of their team. This is the job I'd be looking for if I wasn't already here!

They are having a lot of fun leveraging Amazon web services with a combination of open source and proprietary technologies to build a video / image / document & other evidence management platform that is significantly changing the way that the insurance industry does business. They make money by saving insurers money whilst simultaneously helping the insured get their repairs faster (they love them). They operate independently but are backed by one largest IT service providers in the world who are also out there selling us to the biggest insurers around the world.

They look for people that can take a high level objective and approach their solution with elegance / simplicity, care about their craft, are willing to take ownership of problems and who have an expectation of success. If you are more capable than most of the people you've worked with before, mature enough to make things as simple as possible and have a positive attitude then they want you to come work with us!

Their office is located in the heart of Edinburgh's city centre, within walking distance of Waverley station and with convenient lunchtime access to some of the city's best cafes & restaurants. They pretty much always just go to Pret or M&S though tbh. They have an office BBQ and they regularly use it! The office building decorations are pretty out of control and I know it's weird to mention this but the toilets are private and excellent. Kitchen is super nice, it really is a great office to work out of.
