Mathematics – can you scale the numbers up?

Senior Software Developer


What’s to like?


The size of our client’s customer base and the complexity of

their product, from the algorithms to their technology stack and future growth plans.


This is a key role in hidden gem of a business - an online, games-based, math’s learning service used by thousands of schools and millions of children worldwide. They are revolutionizing education and are world-leaders in engagement, yet with only c. 30 developers, tucked away in pleasant offices in Edinburgh, they offer a uniquely friendly, flexible yet ferociously talented work environment.  



What do I need to succeed? 


Above all, you’ll need to be able to scale large enterprise applications with a minimum of over 200,000 users (to several million and more). In addition, a good honors degree in computing, science or technology is a must, coupled with around 3 years’ development experience gained in any relevant commercial setting.


Flexibility is equally important.  Although you’ll ideally have experience in one or more of their stack technologies: (Ruby on Rails, Scala - including Acca, Postgresql & Redis, JavaScript - including Angular, Angular2, TypeScript and CoffeeScript, and AWS, Chef, Git, Unix), However if you come from another technology stack and have demonstrable experience solving technical problems in regards to scaling the back end of large enterprise applications, such as scaling up servers or load on servers then please still apply, you will be considered.

In return, they expect you (and everyone else) to listen, exchange ideas and pull together as a dynamic team. As a senior developer, you’ll be expected to lead by example and must therefore be a creative, effective and articulate communicator.



You should be.  Opportunities like this don’t crop up very often.  Share options, a great salary and a company that has achieved great things and has much more planned for the future – what’s not to like?  To find out more, call me on 0131 344 4790 or email
