What you will do…

As a Software Engineer in the Presentation Squad you will be responsible for the presentation of information to customers to help them better decide what to bet on. This encompasses the underlying framework, methods and patterns that the whole front-end of the website is built upon, appropriate middle-layer application services to enrich components with data, and the operational side of ensuring these customer experiences are both rapid and uninterrupted.

You will help to build industry-leading web and mobile applications, built on virtualised and cloud platforms. You will be working in teams that are evenly balanced with a mixture of specialists across front-end and back-end technologies: it’s your attitude and potential to learn and grow we’re looking for, not an oracle of any discipline or specific technology. We write a lot of React/JS, Node/JS, Swift, Kotlin and Java; we use Docker and Kubernetes, and we also do quite a bit in Kafka, PHP, Chef, Graphite, Akka, Redis, MySQL, MongoDB and a range of AWS services, depending on whichever product-owning team you’re part of. We update our technology stack regularly based on what suits the job the best.

Every engineer is passionate about their team and drives improvements in their discipline and the quality of their team’s systems. They share knowledge with others and are constantly learning and adapting their skills to push themselves and their team further: both in the tech that they use, and the way that they approach work, supporting all elements of the work of the team from analysis, design, development, test and operations regardless of title: team commitment is an essential part of our daily lives.

We are not building a monolithic Enterprise app – think micro-services and a lean approach with quick running tests and deployment.

How you will do it…

We will help you grow to be an expert voice in your team and bring your specialisms to bear: whether that’s engineering elegant frontend experiences, building scalable backend services or all of the above. Find what makes you excited to get here on a morning and do more of it.

With your squad, get a deep understanding of your squad’s products and services so that you can play an active part in determining the future for them with your squad’s product manager.

Continuously learn, grow and improve with your team, for example by critical evaluation of your team’s software releases, and finding ways to incrementally make everything you do better and better.

What we can offer you…

An environment where teams feel like family and everyone works together as one team to achieve your shared vision.

Helping you be a master in your domain is critical to our company’s success: that’s why we have “10% L&D time” just for you. This means that Friday afternoons are your time to learn whatever you decide you need to stay at the top of your game.

We have close links with the local tech communities and our colleagues will regularly be seen at local events such as LeedsJS & LeedsPHP as well as hosting events at our modern offices in the heart of Leeds city centre.

Our People Ambition is to attract & develop diverse & talented people to meet the current and future growth needs of SB&G. Together, our aim is to create the Best Digital Business to work at.
