Software Engineer

Red Gate is looking for experienced developers to join us as we tackle the challenge of building simple tools to solve complex problems. You'll work with a world class team to build ingeniously simple software that solves complicated customer problems, from backing up SQL Server databases to the cloud, to development software for mobile applications.

Red Gate has some big challenges ahead. Over the next few years we expect more of our services to be delivered in the cloud, rather than on the desktop. As an experienced developer you'll help us realize this vision.

Red Gate practices agile development; you'll ship early and often and continually be delighting our end users.

You'll be an ambassador for great software engineering and share your knowledge and experience with the team and perhaps further afield.

Red Gate is proud to be independently recognised as Cambridge's best workplace as well as an award winning software provider – we aspire to be the best place you've ever worked. To apply, simply upload your CV and covering letter or get in touch with our Head of Software Engineering if you'd like to talk to us first. If you want to stand out from the crowd, tell us about the work that excites you most or give us a link showcasing your work.

What makes you a Red Gate Software Engineer?

You are an experienced engineer with plenty of war stories to share about the good, bad and ugly of software development.

You'll have a solid grasp of object oriented design with success stories to share. You can demonstrate your experience with a language such as Java, C#, Ruby, or C++ (most of our current products are written in C#). You value clean code in any language and aren't afraid to relentlessly refactor code. Knowledge of the challenges of distributed systems and experience designing web APIs would be beneficial, though not required.

You'll have worked in an agile environment and be comfortable working in short iterations with frequent releases. You'll understand that you both need to build the product right and build the right product, so you'll be happy to engage with customers, UX specialists, product support, and more to make that happen.

You'll be continually honing your skills by seeking out, learning, and sharing new tools and techniques to make yourself an even better problem solver.
