A rare opportunity for a Software Engineer to join an early stage start-up in Manchester as they continue their drive towards a fully commercialised product.

You'll be genuinely entering this company 'on the ground floor' with the chance to really stamp your authority on what could be one of the most innovative companies to come out of Manchester in a long time.

The Company:

The current team have developed a highly sophisticated advanced analytics system which is easily applied to pretty much any industry, with each area being customisable (that is where you come in). They have held some very positive meetings with a couple of household names in the UK about adopting the technology and now need to really ramp up the development to get the product ready for the real world.

Headed up by some of the brightest minds in the UK, the leadership team all come from stellar academic backgrounds, with each of them holding a Doctorate or equivalent in their own field.

The Role:

You will play a key role from day one in getting this product off the ground so to speak. They need someone that can deal with change requests from customers and apply these customisations in the back end.

As a very early team member, you'll be given the freedom to approach development how you see fit, working with some really bright colleagues. If you feel a certain technology would give the product something extra or make your life easier - simply suggest it!


You'll be an experienced Software Engineer who thrives in complex, highly numerate environments. This isn't going to be a run of the mill web app role. You will be challenged and be given the chance to learn new things, almost daily.

If you have a background in a data intensive subject, for example Physics, Stats, Maths or AI that would stand you in really good stead.

Key Skills:

** C# / .NET / ASP.NET - this is the key element of the role

** Full Stack Development - front & back end development

** Any exposure to AI, Machine Learning, Computer Vision or Image Recognition would be a big plus

** HTML / CSS / JavaScript

The current team are happy to spend time getting you up to speed on the specific algorithms of their product, however, they don't have the time or in-house skills to bring you up to speed on C# .NET so this is definitely the main aim of the position.

This is an urgent position, so please don't hesitate in applying for the role and we can book in interviews at the tail end of this week.

For more information or a chat, feel free to contact Liam at Cathcart Associates any time.
