Job Description

Software Engineer sought by leading software business based in Bristol. Lawrence Harvey are hiring for Java, Python and C++ Software Engineers for this innovative business. You will only work on greenfield projects in this team. We seek software engineers / software developers in Java, Python or C++ who want to really make a difference in their careers.

Whilst you will be interviewed and hired based on your experience and skill-set in either Java, Python or C++ you will be offered the opportunity to work on different languages during the course of your employment.

Our ideal hire is someone who will be able to work across more than one language in Java, Python, C++ or GoLang. However being a specialist in one, with a desire to learn is more than enough.

The ethos of the company is continuous learning, and their retention rate over the last 12 months has been 96%. You'll be offered the chance to work on new technology (with training support), have innovation days every quarter and be able to join specialist internal 'guilds', working on and learning about the latest innovations in ML or AI etc.

'All' this employer looks for in its new hires is;

- Experience of working on enterprise scale greenfield projects

- A love for coding and best practice

- For more experienced candidates design/architecture experience

- Being a good human

- A desire to expand your skillset

If you're thinking that this business sounds too good to be true; that the chance to work on some of the latest tech, build your skill-set and only deliver complex greenfield enterprise projects then you'd be wrong. Staff retention/motivation is key to this employer's success.

To me their work/life policy of allowing developers to bank any additional hours worked is a great example of this. Their software engineering team 'save' additional hours to finish early on a Friday or have additional days off, on top of an excellent benefits package. In an age of deadlines and sprints I believe this to be an excellent window into their culture.

We are hiring multiple roles, from Developer / Software Engineer with equivalent of 2 years' experience up to technical architect. Salaries will range from £35,000 to £65,000.

Over the last 4 years Lawrence Harvey has made over 20 hires for this employer. To date none of our permanent hires have left.

Key words: Software Engineer, Java Developer, C++ Developer, Python Developer. Senior Developer.
