Great Britain / London – Software Engineering

Back-end software engineer with systems administration experience

About us

Zuhlke is a software engineering consultancy that helps businesses turn ideas into reality. We need people who are capable and engaged to help build systems for our clients, based mainly in our Shoreditch office. We take on interesting projects in many domains, including media, finance, heavy engineering, and medical devices.

Our reputation is fundamental to our business, so our culture emphasizes respect, quality, and reliability. As a privately-held company owned by past and present employees, and run by engineers, Zuhlke takes a long-term view. For example, you will receive twenty days training per year, including a budget to support activities such as conference attendance, our annual technical camp, and participation in focused topic teams. We need our staff to be technically flexible so, if you don’t have a required skill now, we can support you learning it.

Skills & Requirements

We are looking for back-end software engineers with systems experience. Some of our work is providing internal services to be used by other systems within a client site. This is fundamental work, providing the bedrock on which our clients can build global applications. For example, we're currently working on an application that will be used daily by 3 million customers. We need people who understand reliability, scale, and organisations. We are particularly looking for people with an interest in security.

  • Our technical environment depends on the client, and usually includes a mix of internal and public Cloud, occasionally with specialist hardware.
  • We believe in modern techniques, such as microservices and "infrastructure as code".
  • We use Agile approaches, including practices such as Test-Driven Development and Pair Programming.
  • In practice, most of our development is on JVM, .Net, or Node

Your job will include:

  • Helping our clients understand what they really need
  • Building quality systems to satisfy those needs
  • Working collaboratively with colleagues and clients
  • Keeping technically sharp
  • Getting things done
  • Occasionally travelling to other locations in the UK and mainland Europe

You will benefit from:

  • A generous allowance for training (9% of your time and a budget)
  • An achievement-based career path where you can gain responsibility while remaining technical
  • A competitive salary and comprehensive benefits package

Our work is mainly at or within an hour's travel from our Shoreditch office.

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, or disability status.
