About the role

We've come a long way in a short time, but there's still so much more we can do. We have grand ambitions to make Dayshape the most scalable, flexible and rapid to deploy solution on the market, and we’re not there yet. That’s where you come in.
As part of our Engineering team, you will be delivering features that help our customers schedule thousands of hours of work with ease. You will help us build scalability, resilience and high performance into the product, all while keeping an eye on UX, accessibility and aesthetics.
What you’ll do
  • Develop new features and enhancements
  • Write complex, performant back end business logic in C#
  • Write and upgrade UI components using JavaScript and Vue.js
  • Your time will be roughly evenly split between the front end and back end code.
  • Work with the rest of our engineering team to enhance scalability, performance and maintainability
  • Support our culture of learning, development and teamwork
  • Be involved in the entire life-cycle of features, including idea creation, deployment, and longer term updates and enhancements
About you
  • Several (3+) years of commercial software engineering experience
  • A confident JavaScript developer, happy writing both vanilla JS and modern frameworks (ideally Vue.js)
  • Experienced in C#
  • Experience working in a product development environment
  • Comfortable writing unit tests and end-to-end automated tests
  • Passionate about shipping a product you can be proud of
  • Well-informed on good software development principles, and able to implement them pragmatically
  • An excellent and kind communicator, able to raise awkward questions kindly, and to recognise when you need help
  • Experience collaborating with others - you will be working closely with engineering, product and QA colleagues
  • Adaptable, and motivated to try/learn new things
  • Great at breaking down large tasks into manageable chunks
  • Able to see the Big Picture - how your decisions affect your colleagues and your users

Bonus points if you have

  • Experience working with agile development teams on large products
  • Experience working with complex web interfaces with large DOM views
  • Experience with the rest of our stack: RabbitMQ, SQL Server, and/or Microsoft Azure
  • Experience working in (or with) the Professional Services industry
  • Experience writing tests in Jest, Cypress or Playwright
What you’ll get
  • Starting salary between £38,000 and £44,000, depending on experience
  • Earning potential in the Software Engineer salary band up to £48,500
  • At least £1,000 per year to spend on professional and personal development
  • 33 days' holiday per year (including bank holidays), increasing by 1 day each year to a maximum of 40 days
  • Paid four week sabbatical in your fifth anniversary year on top of your holiday entitlement
  • Enhanced family leave policies
  • Private healthcare and rewards through Vitality
  • Income protection and death in service cover
  • Matched 5% auto-enrolment workplace pension scheme
  • Access to wellbeing offerings, such as our Employee Assistance Programme and a dedicated counselling service
  • Innovation Week twice a year - a chance to experiment and work off-project
  • Weekly All Hands meeting for inspiration and over-communication
  • Time out of the working week for team socials each month, with a mix of in-person and virtual options: past events include hiking, family BBQs, board games and at-home cocktail classes!
  • Genuinely nice, smart people to work with, who are excited about growing our company

Working Details

This is a full-time role (37.5 hours per week). We typically work from 09:00 - 17:30 from Monday to Friday, though we can be flexible around this, just let us know.
We’re ideally looking for someone in/around Edinburgh, though we’re open to the possibility of this being a remote role (as long as you're in the UK). We're making the most of hybrid working, so you won't need to come into the office everyday (unless you want to!).
We don't mandate required office time, but we find that most of the team enjoy working from home 3-4 days a week, and come into our office to connect with each other, make use of space, and for meetings.

Join the team!

Equality of opportunity is more than just a responsibility: we believe it’s a huge advantage to welcome a variety of experiences and perspectives into the team. Diversity is a great asset and, as such, we strongly encourage applications from any background.
This is your opportunity to really influence how we get things done, and how our product develops to meet our customers’ needs. We're doing well, but there's lots more to do in order to maintain the high bar and pace that we've set.
Everyone here is growing personally as the company grows, so if that sounds like something you’d like to be part of, we’d love to see your application.
