NOT ACTIVE – C++ Senior Developer, C++ Software Engineer – £80,000 – £100,000

In this newly created opening, Senior Developer doesn’t just mean a slightly higher salary and a new job title.

It means that you’ll be using your technical skills to transform the company’s product – that you’ll be a visible presence and a respected voice in the business.


Where you fit it

You’ll join a business that’s established a market for its optimised work scheduling product – they help some of the world’s leading organisations to create work schedules that deliver measurable commercial value and give staff a better, fairer work-life balance.

They’ve secured multiple rounds of funding and built a great team. Now they’re ready to take their data science team to the next level – and that’s where you come in.


What’s the role

You’ll be the first hire of a newly created team, reporting to the new Lead Data Scientist, and the CTO. The team has been created to transform the product range: to make the company’s offer faster, more flexible, scalable, and applicable to a broader client base and problem set.

Broadly, your role is to develop and maintain new, exciting features and functionality, primarily in the retail and healthcare verticals, whilst protecting the scalability, security and performance of the platform

There’s lots to achieve; here’s where you can contribute:

  • Constantly thinking about how algorithms can be optimised
  • Working closely with the Product team to identify areas of improvements and examine the feasibilities of new features.
  • Providing accurate estimates for how long new features or bug fixes will take to deliver.

As the team grows, so will you – for example, contributing to overall project strategy, mentoring junior developers, evolving the tech stack.

Ultimately, you’ll have the job satisfaction of helping to transform a real-world application that helps employers including NHS Trusts and high street stores to take the pain out of workforce management, save time and improve their people’s lives. You’re working for a positive purpose.


About the business

This is a successful, globally trusted, award-winning company with huge scope to really accelerate. The global workforce automation market is set to more than double to $9bn in 2022 – a strong tailwind for growth.

The leadership team really care about changing scheduling for good – and about their people. The culture is flexible, collaborative and caring. People are friendly, inquisitive, and smart. There’s a refreshing lack of egos, micromanagement or office politics. Communication from the senior team is clear and transparent – you’ll know exactly what’s expected of you and what you’re working towards.

As you’d expect, work-life balance is a priority here. You’ll be empowered to work when and where it suits you – whether that’s in the London HQ, 100% remotely or a blend of the two. The company are happy to supply WeWork all-access membership plus a £250 WFH setup budget and all the hardware you need.


What you need

Technically, we’re looking for solid experience in C++ development. You’ve shown you can write clean, maintainable, and technically sound code (using OO and SOLID Principles) and that you’re capable of finding and articulating solutions to complex problems.

Your colleagues would recognise you as a good teamworker with all-round communication skills. You’re comfortable collaborating (in person or remotely) and happy to support other team members to achieve their best.

If you’ve worked for a similar scale-up, great – but you don’t need scheduling or optimisation experience. The more of the following you have on your CV, the better:

  • Success working on low-level algorithms and optimisation problems,
  • ideally using C++.
  • Unit/integration testing of complex C++ applications
  • Concurrency, multi-threading and memory management
  • Back-end development architecture
  • Exposure to an Agile environment

Nice-to-haves include: genetic algorithms, Python, Kubernetes

C# .NET, Docker, Google Cloud.
