What you'll do
- Consultative Engineering – Identify, articulate, and influence the shape of business outcomes through platform solutions across the business and technology landscape and across the lifecycle from concept, through realization into production and back again. You will be able to balance the books between technology purism, best-practice, and solution-fit.
- Collaborative Solutioning – We are looking for people who want to work in cross-functional teams, and want to help others learn how to build them, and why they're valuable; people with a grasp of a variety of technologies, languages, and methodologies, along with their pros and cons.

Who are we Looking for:
We are looking for people with a truly Agile Mind-Set who want to be involved with the best technical teams in Edinburgh. We want you to help us, help our customer change their way of thinking and how they approach problems. We want you to join our team and help teach and also learn from the others in the team. If you are looking for a quiet environment, where you can hide away then this isn’t for you. We want people who know how to make the most of Agile Delivery and who can share that with the team and with our customer. But we also want people who are humble and know when to ask for support and guidance and who aren’t afraid to admit they might not have the right answer there and then. But you will know how to find out the right answer.
Most importantly we are looking for you to value the people in your team and wider teams. Supporting them to flourish, understand the pros and cons of implementing certain ways of thinking, technologies or methodologies.

The Scrum teams you will be taking ownership for will include a number of Engineers, QAs and a Product Owner from the business.
