This is a fantastic opportunity to join a start-up in the stages of accelerating growth and proven traction with our core product USMART - that consumes, analyses and visualises data using advanced big data technologies to make smart cities and communities.
You will be based in our CodeBase office, part of a vibrant start-up community in the middle of Edinburgh.
WHO WE ARE
UrbanTide helps organisations to realise their full data potential. We do this by providing services and we have developed our next generation SaaS smart data platform.
Our platform supports real-time data acquisition, publication and analytics via scalable microservice APIs. It acts as a portal for data sharing, publishing open data and also as an internal data integration and analysis tool. We have proven market traction with this product and are looking to develop the product and manage our existing client requirements.
To achieve this ambitious goal we are now looking for a talented Software Engineer to join the team and help us build on and develop this innovative solution.
You love test-driven development, continuous integration, instrumentation and containerised deployment. You build your own great stuff for fun, but at work you choose standards and reuse, and you don't reinvent the wheel. You’re a problem solver and you strive for perfection, but you also understand that getting the job done comes first.
If you discover issues you are happy to address them without passing blame. If you make a mistake you feel comfortable to admit and learn from it. You love to work with smart people and enjoy the fast-paced and flexible environment of a start-up.
