Software Engineer

As part of Sword Group, we’ve big plans for 2021 and are looking for talented software engineers to join our team. This position will suit you if you have up to 5 years’ relevant experience. You’ll need to understand the fundamentals of computer science, have an aptitude for technical problem solving and get a kick out of creating great code and user interfaces.

We build mobile, web and desktop apps using a Microsoft technology stack. We use .NET in all our projects – it is a great technology that is only getting better since the introduction of the cross-platform, open-source and MIT-licensed .NET Core. Here are some of the technologies that you can expect to work with:

  • .NET Core/5.0 and .NET Framework 4.8
  • C# and TypeScript/JavaScript
  • Xamarin Forms for iOS and Android
  • Blazor, ASP.NET, HTML and CSS
  • WPF and Windows Forms

You’ll join our team of over 20 software engineers who build new applications and support existing ones. We take an engineer-led approach to our projects which means that you are fully involved in decisions throughout. You’ll also be in regular contact with our customers so good communication skills are essential too.

Having a happy team means a lot to us and we aim to be the best workplace in town for software engineers. We are a friendly bunch and encourage knowledge sharing and helping each other out. We are not fans of overtime – we plan our projects well so we can all enjoy a good work-life balance.

Our office is based in the centre of Aberdeen and, although we are all mostly working from home at the moment, we are planning a healthy mix of office and home working once current restrictions ease further.

You’ll be paid a competitive salary and enjoy great staff benefits. Once you’ve settled in, you can tailor your working hours around our core hours of 10am-4pm.

As part of the application process we’ll set you a small programming challenge – it shouldn’t take much more than an hour to complete. If you’re like us then you’ll enjoy the challenge and the chance to show us your skills!
