Looking to provide insight to an ambitious Edinburgh start-up hiring aggressively to bolster their Engineering team on the back of financial investment and forthcoming greenfield projects.

On offer is the chance to join a small, but highly, highly ambitious, growing brand that has created a genuine work life balance proposal by running a 4 day working week, yet paying you for 5. You'll be hired under the premise of in time becoming one of the key influencers on the company's technical direction, whilst also having the opportunity to spearhead the Python team. For the immediate time, you'll be hired as a mid-level Python developer benefitting from one-to-one mentoring from the senior engineers and tech lead.

They have a real people centric focus to their culture. The importance of a good company culture cannot go understated and is something we all enjoy. There are very clear and specific career paths on offer with fantastic training to help you develop in the areas you regard as the key to progressing your career. They keep flexible hours but still ensure what needs done is completed to a high standard - their product is fast paced and ever evolving which is naturally very exciting.
There is also no denying a 4 day working week, Pizza Wednesday and relaxed dress code resonate with most.

Team Ethos
The engineering lab is made up of small teams working in dynamic fashion with a flexible offering. As such, you will have the opportunity to thrive if you like short sprints and a fast turning environment. If you're passionate about what you do, enjoy searching for a challenge and driven by improvement, this may well be the right move. This company also utilise test-driven development, continuous integration, and instrumentation.

Your Role
You will be a pivotal figure on business critical applications with real customers around the world. You'll develop solutions in a variety of languages and leading technologies. Their core system is PHP, but they use Python for greenfield back end projects. The company are very tech agnostic, and will entertain applications from technologists from all backgrounds under the premise of cross training in Python.

Tech Insight
*PHP - used for legacy code base
*Python for greenfield projects - full training provided

The recruitment lifecycle is incredibly relaxed and engaging. First and foremost, you will have a simple 20 minute chat over the phone walking through your CV and also giving you the opportunity to see if what they can offer is ticking boxes with your aspirations.

Thereafter, you'll be invited in to the Edinburgh office to participate in a purely technical discussion. You'll have the chance to get some project insight and also ask the relevant discovery questions. You'll then undertake a soft skills conversation on the same day with prospective offer to follow.

I must stress the length of the entire process will last no longer than two weeks from application to offer. Get in touch with Connor Reid at Harvey Nash to find out more.
