The Opportunity

Would you like to help create a brand-new engineering organisation? Perhaps you know what great engineering culture looks like, or you have an entrepreneurial side as well as outstanding coding skills? Whatever your aspirations, we're trying to create the best engineering consultancy in the UK and looking for brilliant engineers to be part of the journey.

About DMW Engineering

DMW helps organisations solve their biggest, most exciting engineering problems. We've created banks from scratch on Kubernetes and AWS, built streaming analytics solutions that protect the country and built platforms to enable whole organisations to move to AWS and Azure, and everything in between. We do all this in a work environment where regular social events, inclusivity and an ego-free culture mean we've been officially voted a "Great Place to Work" for five years in a row.

We're not interested in cutting corners and believe in helping our clients to make the right choice for the long-term. We draw on our reputation for outstanding delivery to allow our engineers to do the right thing for our clients, and not necessarily the easy thing. Innovation is in our DNA, and we encourage our engineers and consultants to work together to rethink conventional wisdom on how problems should be solved.


We offer three locations for this: London, Leeds or Manchester. All three locations are based in central locations in each city: Holborn, next to Leeds station and Manchester Piccadilly. The offices are relaxed, modern coworking spaces with plenty of private and shared areas.

Here's what you will do (Not all of it, but some of the important stuff!)

  • Solve the problems others cannot
  • Spend a day a week working on a combination of internal products and your own development
  • Create platforms based around a modern, cloud-native tech stack:
  • Java 8+ and Kotlin
  • Python
  • AWS, Azure and Google Cloud
  • Kubernetes
  • Terraform
  • Dataiku
  • And more...

Do you have the essentials?
  • Demonstrable experience with at least one JVM language (Java, Kotlin)
  • Experience working within an agile, iterative engineering environment
  • Willingness to work collaboratively
  • Have a drive for self-improvement and learning
  • Approach solving problems pragmatically

It would be great if you had these desirable skills

  • Experience developing software using a TDD approach, and willingness to practice TDD
  • Experience applying Continuous Delivery practices to deliver software to production
  • Experience working with one of the main cloud providers (AWS, Azure or Google, with double points if you have worked with more than one)
  • Experience with any infrastructure as code would be beneficial

This is what you get in return

We've grown consistently over the years and offer an entrepreneurial environment within which to embark upon an exciting career path, where your contribution really counts, and we will recognise it. With personalised development opportunities, experienced colleagues and challenging client assignments, progression can be extremely rapid for high performers. We are a social bunch of people and go out as a team on a regular basis. You can also expect:

  • A highly collaborative working environment and great rates of pay (including base salary and bonus potential).
  • A range of flexible benefits consisting of well-being and lifestyle benefits.
  • A commitment to your development & continuous growth of skills through one-to-one mentoring and wide-ranging hands-on experience.
  • 25 days' holiday and the ability to flex this to 30 days if you chose to do so.
  • 2 day's CSR volunteering days.
  • Award-winning learning and development opportunities, including dedicated personal training budgets and time and a wide range of choice in training courses.
  • A dedicated personal budget to choose the IT equipment of your choice.
