Are you a Software Engineer that wants to actually see the real-world impact from what you help to create? Our mission is simple! We believe we can use tech to make public services better. We also believe this can happen best when our own team represents the society that actually uses the services we work on. At Made Tech, we’re collectively continuing to grow a culture that is happy, healthy, safe and inspiring for people of all backgrounds and experiences, so we encourage all people from underrepresented groups to apply for roles with us.

The Role

As an Engineer 2 you will actively contribute to planning of work and the development of features, helping to define the features and approach to delivering them. You will proactively pick up complex features, seeking guidance and support when needed to complete them, and be comfortable architecting and delivering simple features in new contexts.

You will have the opportunity to work across a variety of technologies and will need to be comfortable doing so. Our teams have used Ruby with Rails and Sinatra, ES6 with React and Angular, C# with .NET Core, Java with Spring, Python with Django, and plenty more stacks. We don’t limit ourselves as a company to particular technologies and we expect all our engineers to be keen on learning new skills.

High performing software delivery teams need to be empowered to iteratively and rapidly deliver changes all the way through to production. We grow a team of language agnostic engineers, which you might already consider yourself to be, who are versed in a mix of paradigms such as object-oriented, functional, declarative, event-based and aspect-oriented. You will need to be comfortable sharing your knowledge and skills with others, and be willing to learn new technologies and skills.


In this role, you will be empowered to:

  • Write code with test-driven development
  • Deliver within an agile environment
  • Work with a variety of programming languages (right tool for the job mentality)
  • Work with databases (Postgres, MySQL, MongoDB)
  • Work with (and learn around) cloud platforms such as AWS, GCP and/or Azure
  • Debug in a range of systems
  • Work on your own self-development – we value keen learners
  • Have a drive to deliver outcomes for users
  • Mentor others
  • Champion Clean Architectures (Object Oriented Programming, SOLID Principles, Code Smells, etc.)

Nice to Haves

We want our teams and individuals to grow. If you don’t have the following skills, you will have access to a learning budget, experienced team members and a wider learning and mentoring culture that can help you develop the following:
  • Working directly with customers and users
  • Working within multidisciplinary teams with product, design, and technology working within the same cycles
  • Showcasing and presentation skills
  • Agile practices such as Scrum, XP, and/or Kanban
  • Pair programming
  • Familiarity with architectural and design patterns


We are always listening to our growing teams and evolving the benefits available to our people. As we scale, as do our benefits and we are scaling quickly. We've recently introduced a flexible benefit platform which includes a Smart Tech scheme, Cycle to work scheme, and an individual benefits allowance which you can invest in a Health care cash plan or Pension plan. We’re also big on connection and have an optional social and well-being calendar of events for all employees to join should they choose to.

Our internal culture mission is to nurture and support a happy, healthy, safe and inspiring culture for people of all backgrounds and experiences. The Tech industry doesn’t reflect the wide range of lived experiences of our society. At Made Tech we encourage all people but especially those from underrepresented groups to apply for roles with us. We want to make the world of tech more equitable for all, which first starts with giving everyone who wants to enter this industry a fair chance.
