This opportunity is offering the chance for UK based Principal Engineers to work remotely with irregular visits to their London office. 

The Company

Having won industry awards for their game-changing environmentally sustainable products, a company are looking to hire a Principal Software Engineer.

They're heavily involved in the internet of things, so this could be a great chance for you to engage with a completely new area of technology. 

Their Main Requirements

  • 5+ years' of proven software engineering experience using a strongly typed programming language ( Java / C / C++ / Python / Scala ) 
  • An interest in building microservices in Golang - existing experience not required
  • Strong API design experience is a must
  • A flair for building software architecture
  • An ability to take an idea & autonomously conceptualize it & then build it 
  • Some exposure to CI / CD practices 
  • A desire to make software robust, stable & scalable
  • An ability to win the hearts & minds of their less experienced software engineers

Your Interests

This position will be particularly appealing to those with even a passing interest in the following:

  • Low-Carbon & Renewable Energy 
  • Cleantech
  • IoT - Internet of Things
  • Big Data
  • Working with Golang

The Role

Joining as an experienced engineer, you'll play an important part in building their next-gen software solutions. They need someone who brings a good body of knowledge about software best practices & who is comfortable recommending new processes & tools that fit the task at hand.

The business have so far found great success in hiring those with a tendency to tackle new challenges with both a positive & curious approach. They'd love to see these traits in you as well.

If you're a sociable, environmentally-conscious technologist with a flair for picking up new technologies, I'd encourage you to apply.

Why Do People Join?

  • The founders are extremely involved - they are constantly welcoming & implementing brand new ideas that come from the software teams.
  • The chance to work for a company that hold environmental sustainability at the heart of everything they do.
  • They have nurtured an environment where people seem to want to socialise both inside & outside of work - there's no 'forced fun'

The Next Steps

If you like the sound of the company & you'd be interested in finding out more, apply & I'll get in touch to arrange an informal chat.
