Full Time
Software Engineer (JAVA), International Software business, Edinburgh, £35-45k

Your new company
I am currently working on an exclusive basis with a very successful international software company in order to recruit Software Engineers for their Edinburgh team. As a market leader within their industry, they have expanded across the UK and Europe as well as building a major operation in Australia and NZ.

While part of large parent company, the main HQ of this business is on the west side of Edinburgh with around 25 staff on site. There is excellent transport links to the motorway and free parking. The tram and railway lines are less than 10 minutes walk away.

They have recently commenced work on a major new build of their flagship product. This will result in a fully modern Software as a Service solution and open up further markets across the world.

Your new role

The development team currently sits at 8 with approval to grow this to 10 as soon as possible. Over the first few months you will divide your time between the existing Java product suite as well as being part of the new SaaS project.

While the core skill set required is Java, you will be using a range of modern web technologies including JavaScript (currently ReactJS), Wildfly, Vaadin and JSF.

The team works in a highly collaborative way and carries out regular releases in order to maintain the edge over any competitors.

What you'll need to succeed

While commercial Java development experience is the core technical skill needed, the client does not wish to be overly prescriptive on a list of tools or technologies. Being a confident engineer and a real team player is more valuable than knowing the latest new javascript framework.

What you'll get in return
This is an exciting opportunity to join a talented team of software engineers that are passionate about delivering high quality commercial software. You will play a key role in building a major new platform and this will involve further development of your skills and knowledge.
