It is a blue-sky opportunity.

A fast-growing B2B ‘scale - up’ is hiring!

Are you a talented Software Engineer looking for a greenfield software engineering environment that offers the opportunity to use the latest AWS, DevOps and Front End technologies and UI frameworks who wants to play a key role in shaping both the product and technical direction of the software team?

Then we have a great opportunity with a fast – growing B2B ‘scale – up’ based in Bristol working to provide data-driven insights to guide marketing and commercial decisions in some the world’s largest enterprise technology, telecommunications and energy companies.
