    About us

    We’re an award-winning enterprise software scale-up with high ambitions for growth. Being recognised as Scotland’s fastest growing tech company in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 awards three years in a row shows that we are on the right track!

    Dayshape is an advanced resource management solution, incorporating AI and intelligent automation to help professional services firms optimise their workforce like never before. It’s built to handle large, complex, and ever-changing requirements with ease.

    As a company, we live our values every day and we're committed to making sure our friendly and inclusive environment grows with us.

    About the role

    We've come a long way in a short time, but there's still so much more we can do. We have grand ambitions to make Dayshape the most scalable, flexible and rapid to deploy solution on the market, and we’re not there yet. That’s where you come in.

    As part of our Engineering team, you will be delivering UI-driven features that help our customers schedule thousands of hours of work with ease. You will help us build scalability, resilience and high performance into the product, all while keeping an eye on UX, accessibility and aesthetics.

    What you’ll do

    • Develop new features and enhancements
    • Write complex, performant frontend business logic in JavaScript
    • Work with the rest of our engineering team to enhance scalability, performance and maintainability
    • Help us make our codebase “fit-for-future” on a new JavaScript framework (Vue.js)
    • Support our culture of learning, development and teamwork
    • Be involved in the entire life-cycle of features, including idea creation, deployment, and longer term updates and enhancements

    About you

    • A confident JavaScript developer, happy writing both vanilla JS and modern frameworks
    • Willing to contribute across our tech stack (primarily C# and .Net). This is likely to take up around 20% of your time
    • Comfortable writing unit tests and end-to-end automated tests
    • Passionate about shipping a product you can be proud of
    • Well-informed on good software development principles, and able to implement them pragmatically
    • An excellent and kind communicator, able to raise awkward questions kindly, and to recognise when you need help
    • Working closely with others is second nature - whether with our highly experienced engineers, or our product and QA colleagues
    • Adaptable, and motivated to try/learn new things
    • Great at breaking down large tasks into manageable chunks
    • Able to see the big picture - how your decisions affect your colleagues and your users

    Bonus points if you have

    • Experience working with agile development teams on large products
    • Experience working with complex web interfaces with large DOM views
    • Experience working with Vue.js
    • Experience with the rest of our stack: C#, .Net (+Core), RabbitMQ, SQL Server, and/or Microsoft Azure
    • Experience working in (or with) the Professional Services industry

    What you’ll get

    • Starting salary between £35,000 and £47,500, depending on experience
    • Earning potential in the Software Engineer salary band up to £50,000
    • Investment in your learning and development to support your career progression (as a Software Engineer and beyond), including a min. £1,000 per year to spend on professional and personal development
    • 33 days' holiday per year (including bank holidays), increasing by 1 day each year to a maximum of 40 days
    • Paid four week sabbatical in your fifth anniversary year on top of your holiday entitlement
    • Private healthcare and rewards through Vitality
    • Income protection and death in service cover
    • Matched 5% auto-enrolment workplace pension scheme
    • EMI options as part of our employee share options scheme
    • Access to wellbeing offerings, such as our Employee Assistance Programme and a dedicated counselling service
    • Innovation Week twice a year - a chance to experiment and work off-project
    • Weekly All Hands meeting for inspiration and over-communication
    • Time out of the working week for monthly team socials, with a mix of in-person and virtual options: past events include hiking, family BBQs, online games, D&D, and at-home cocktail classes
    • Genuinely nice, smart people to work with, who are excited about growing our company

    Working Details

    This is a full-time role (37.5 hours per week). We typically work from 09:00 - 17:30 from Monday to Friday, though we can be flexible around this, just let us know.

    Our office is based in Edinburgh, but we also hire remote workers (in the UK). For those in/near Edinburgh, we have a flexible hybrid approach so you can work from home when you prefer - we don’t mandate a minimum number of office days per week.


    Join the team!

    Equality of opportunity is more than just a responsibility: we believe it’s a huge advantage to welcome a variety of experiences and perspectives into the team. Diversity is a great asset and, as such, we strongly encourage applications from any background.

    This is your opportunity to really influence how we get things done, and how our product develops to meet our customers’ needs. We're doing well, but there's lots more to do in order to maintain the high bar and pace that we've set.

    Everyone here is growing personally as the company grows, so if that sounds like something you’d like to be part of, we’d love to see your application.
