Job description

About Bright Network


At Bright Network, we connect ambitious young people from all backgrounds with the brightest career opportunities. Our leading platform provides members with the tools, advice and insights they need to access brilliant opportunities at global companies.


We're looking to hire experienced Software Engineers (ideally experienced in Python) into our rapidly-growing Edinburgh office - Engineers who pride themselves on producing high quality code and bettering themselves as Developers, to help us on that journey.


Specifically, you will…



  • Take full ownership for designing, building and launching new platforms, services and features across our entire range of products

  • Collaborate with the other engineers and the CTO to be a key contributor to technical design and problem solving

  • Contribute to shaping the technical roadmap as we make the platform more robust and ready for greater scale


The ideal candidate



  • You’ll ideally have multiple years’ experience using Python to design and implement complex web applications - although some of our team have come from a javascript background so this could be equally useful if you're keen to learn!

  • You’ll have experience running and maintaining large scale user-facing web applications

  • You have high expectations & take pride in your work - with a desire to be better and a thirst to learn

  • Start-up or small business experience is useful – understanding the need to collaborate and communicate effectively within a small team


Our technology stack



  • We primarily use Python across most of our services and a react native application for student signups

  • We use automated testing to enable continuous integration and are shortly moving to continuous deployment

  • Our code base is relatively new, so we don’t have much legacy code and we're focused on building out new features in short build, test and learn cycles


We can offer you…



  • The opportunity to take real ownership over the work you do and the problems you solve

  • A collaborative working culture where peer reviews and regular feedback are a prominent feature

  • A tight-knit team where you’ll work directly alongside and learn from experienced developers

  • An exciting technical roadmap – from how we use data science to match members with the right employer; to how we build the best possible platform for our members to make the right career choice

  • A quiet working environment with high quality equipment to produce high quality code

  • Flexible working & the opportunity to work from home

  • Huge focus on learning & development, with an L&D budget and mini internal MBA


Key Details


Salary : Highly competitive and dependent on experience


Contract : Permanent


Location : Edinburgh city centre


Start Date : ASAP & ongoing throughout the year (we’re hiring for multiple vacancies within the team)
