Now Hiring

Software Engineer

We’re expanding our product team and looking for a bright, pragmatic and self – motivated software engineer to help us keep pace with customers’ demands and further accelerate the growth of the Schoolscreener platform.

You’ll be managing the delivery of new features with our external partners as well as being responsible for delivering code over the full ‘stack’ — from development of our browser – based user interface, to the server APIs and data processing behind them. You’ll have the satis faction – and the responsibility – of seeing your work being relied on by many of our users in the UK and increasingly, overseas. We run a small yet productive development team with lightweight processes that enable us to deliver frequent software updates. We’re continually refining and extending all aspects of the SchoolScreener platform in response to feedback from our users. With this in mind, you’ll need to structure code for reliability, reusability and simplicity, so we can continue to scale the platf orm while responding quickly to user demands.

We currently work with a wide range of technologies including . net, C#, MSSQL, JQuery, AngularJs and Angular8 and Desktop Application Windows WPF. If you have experience in these that’s great, but it’s more imp ortant you understand the core principles of good software design, aren’t too wedded to a particular language and are able to learn new things quickly (we’ll be there to support and guide you along the way).

There’s an informal and flexible work environmen t here and you’ll have a key role within it as we continue to grow. Whether you’re a recent graduate with some early experience looking to jump – start your career or an experienced engineer looking for flexibility, this is a propitious time to join a fast – growing company.
