In return you can expect a competitive salary that includes a share of company dividends through the employee trust, company workplace pension and the opportunity to thrive within a challenging and supportive culture. As part of the package there is also continual training and development and the Cycle to Work Scheme.

The company is an established brand with an excellent reputation for achieving a competitive edge for small and large businesses alike by bringing new or improved products to market. The team works collaboratively with clients to augment their internal capabilities, supporting them to add functionality, reduce cost, increase visual appeal, enhance usability, and keep pace with the IoT revolution. Clients include household names and those on their way to becoming leading consumer electronics and medical device brands.

You will be able to work remotely or in the company’s bright and open studio based 20 minutes south of Edinburgh’s centre in stunning rural surroundings with views of the Pentland Hills. The company recognises the value of maintaining a strong work life balance which they foster through flexible and remote working arrangements (co-designed by the team itself).
