Senior Software Engineer (Backend)

Senior Software Engineer (Backend)


We’re free thinkers. We’re innovators. We’re #ConsultantsWhoCode.

If you’re looking for the next step then we are looking for a Senior Software Engineer (Backend), to join our Software Engineering team here at EDF.


The Opportunity…


We’re a multi-disciplined team with generalists and specialists; be it front-end, back-end, full stack developer or DevOps. We offer opportunities for engineers who want to help shape, develop and grow our software engineering practice, whilst developing their own skills, knowledge and career.

We’re evolving our IT landscape from traditional on-premise monoliths, to a collection of scalable, independent micro services, which enable us to react to the fast paced nature of the energy industry and uncertainty.

Our Software Engineering practice is at the heart of this transformation and we encourage our engineering community to really understand our challenges, what our customers need from us, and to create practical applications that solve business needs.


Pay, benefits and culture


Alongside a competitive salary (depending on experience), potential to earn 5% bonus, 28 days holiday plus bank holidays and a market-leading pension scheme, we offer a range of flexible benefits to support our people across all aspects of their lives.


Your rewards package includes a choice of benefits, such as electric vehicle leasing, enhanced parental leave, health insurance, discounts and employee pricing.


Flexible working means you can work from home (if you wish) and we’ll provide a suite of IT equipment to ensure that you can work remotely comfortably and effectively. Our Software Engineering team can work flexibly from home or the office, balancing the working day with personal commitments. We have offices in London, Brighton and Exeter.


Steve Bowerman, Principal Software Engineer says “It’s an exciting time.  We’ve got a great start-up culture in a larger organisation, with the corporate stability and backing. And that real emphasis on being able to affect change is very important for me.”


At EDF, everyone’s welcome. We strive to create an inclusive and diverse environment where everyone has a voice and where you feel confident being yourself. We’re committed to equality, diversity and inclusion. We’d like our future workforce to have an equal gender balance, represent a broad mix of people from minority ethnic backgrounds, LGBTQ+, those with a disability and supporting social mobility.


We’re a disability confident employer and we’ll do all we can to help with your application, making adjustments as you need.


We’ll value the difference you bring and offer opportunities for you to thrive and succeed.


What you’ll be doing


Our core working methods are based around modern DevOps process; shift-left, test automation, SRE, CICD, and "everything as code" mindset.

A high level view of our stack is:  

  • Serverless architecture
  • AWS tools and resources inc: Lambda, Step Functions, API Gateway, EventBridge, SQS, DynamoDB, S3, Cloudfront
  • CI/CD: Github/CodeBuild/CodePipeline
  • IaC: Terraform, Serverless Framework
  • React / Typescript

Whilst we’re looking for these skills, people will have the opportunity to work across the team and develop expertise in different areas. 

The team is growing rapidly, and we are always looking for different levels of talent. Our preference is to promote within the team and grow our engineers into seniors and leads where they have the aptitude and desire.


Who you are


On the back end, you'll work on our Integration with SaaS solutions. You'll feel at home using data, building pipelines, deployment, wrangling API’s (REST/GraphQL) and event driven architectures (using EventBridge). You’ll have the opportunity to take ownership for the full software development life cycle, from concept, to design, to deployment into the business. 


On the front end side, you'll work on our customer facing web applications and internal staff facing web applications. They're based on React and TypeScript, hosted on S3 and utilise micro frontends and EDF-shared front end libraries. Accessibility compliance and reliability (thorough tests) are required.

You thrive in an evolving environment where you get the opportunity to contribute to diverse projects and innovate new solutions to business challenges. At EDF, you can experience different teams and feel like you’re in a new job, without changing companies.

You’re looking for an opportunity to work flexibly, develop your skills and leave your print on a blank canvas.


If this sounds like you then we’d love to hear from you!
