Covid-19 Hiring Update: Like many employers, we've transitioned to a work-from-home model and are exploring how and when we will return to our physical offices.  During this time, we continue to recruit and leverage video interviews to get to know candidates. While many of our positions were already remote by design, our recruiters will share any long-term location requirements for a particular position.

Cherwell Software (@Cherwell) is a global leader in enterprise service management, empowering organizations through the use of intuitive technology for better, faster, and more affordable innovation. Our solutions and our people build lasting relationships. We are a growing company with offices in the US, Europe, and Australia.

We are looking for a Software Engineer to join our team in Scotland. We’re based in Dundee but offer flexible working, so if you don’t live locally we use technology to support remote working.

Who Will Love This Job

  • A problem solver: You thrive in an environment that tests ideas by building.
  • Someone with a passion for technology: You are technically confident - you can learn and use new technologies quickly
  • Someone who is a “doer”: You find the opportunities to help customers and you take them.
  • A​ ​strategic​ ​thinker​: ​ ​You can capture the unique vision of what Cherwell does and inspire customers with a sense of what’s possible
  • A great teammate: You collaborate with other team members to solve problems and work together to achieve deadlines and departmental goals. You have a point of view but are low ego

What You'll Do

The Software Engineer supports new product development and product improvement projects as part of a multi-disciplinary team. This includes design, analysis, and all aspects of project engineering work. 

  • Complete your development tasks on time and to the standards agreed to by your team.
  • Resolve as well as highlight defects with the product. In most circumstances you can complete programming tasks without significant intervention from peers or superiors.
  • Influence the success of that development process thru understanding of how software gets developed from idea through to delivery
  • Build expertise in a peculiar technology stack and provide input to the team to decide on the best way forward for any given scenario.
  • Demonstrate the importance of automation testing by ensuring that all of your developments meet the definition of done by writing unit tests for new classes and these classes are consistent with the SOLID principals. Invest in the automation pyramid as appropriate and ensure your tests are included in the continuous integration pipeline.
  • Conform to agile and scrum methodologies and have a good understanding of the ceremonies involved and your role during these various ceremonies.
  • Effectively communicate to your peers and superiors when required to aid your software development and assist the team.
  • You give valuable feedback in code reviews and understand the importance of non-functional requirements such as security & performance concerns.
