Full-stack web engineer for leading SaaS product at FreeAgent (Edinburgh, UK) (allows remote)

Location: Edinburgh or Remote UK only

We’re looking to hire senior software engineers to join our developers, designers and domain experts. Depending on the team you join, you could be working on accounting and compliance features such as payroll and self assessment, re-imagining commonly used areas of the app such as banking, or improving the user experience from the website through to subscription.

Senior engineers at FreeAgent have the opportunity to provide technical leadership and help to grow their teams. We like to work with people who show initiative and continually seek to improve themselves, their teammates, and our codebase. Our product teams are small and cross functional, enjoying a great degree of responsibility. We invest in our platform (code health, scalability, security) as well as working on new features.

Our engineers have varied programming backgrounds, though we primarily work with Ruby, Rails, JavaScript, React.js, MySQL, RabbitMQ, Elasticsearch and Puppet. You don’t have to have all these skills: our on-boarding programme will get any experienced engineer up to speed on our stack fast.

At FreeAgent, we recognise the power of a diverse team, and we encourage applications from individuals with varied experience, perspectives and backgrounds.

Work environment

This is a full time permanent position, working from our smart office in the West End of Edinburgh (convenient for Haymarket station and airport links), or you can work remotely elsewhere in the UK - in fact, 20% of our engineering team are fully remote.

We encourage continual self-development and have access to a generous training budget. We hold bi-annual company hack days. We work smarter, not harder, and try to have fun doing it!

We believe in a healthy work-life balance and we’re a sociable bunch so there’s always something happening outside of work too. In the office you’ll be provided with the best kit including top-of-the-line Apple computers, Herman Miller desks and comfy Aeron chairs. We sit down together for catered lunches every Friday, and a selection of beers, wine, soft drinks, cake and healthy snacks pretty much all the time.

Perks of the job

  • 33 days annual leave, including public holidays, increasing year on year

  • Family friendly policies

  • Childcare vouchers

  • Professional development and training

  • Contributory Pension

  • Private Health Insurance (coming soon)

  • Group Life Assurance (coming soon)

  • Income Protection (coming soon)

  • Cycle to Work scheme

Edinburgh has a vibrant tech scene, the world’s largest arts festival, and it has even been voted the best place in the UK to live for the past two years. What’s not to like?

Applying for the role

Our application process involves a phone-screen, a coding test and a visit to our beautiful Edinburgh office so you can meet and get to know the team. Don’t worry, we’re a nice bunch and we work hard to make the process as straight-forward, transparent and enjoyable as possible.

At FreeAgent, we recognise the power of a diverse team, and we encourage applications from individuals with varied experience, perspectives and backgrounds.

Don’t forget to tell us about why you think FreeAgent is the right place for you to make a difference. We look forward to hearing from you!
