FreeAgent is one of the leading online accounting platforms, loved by over 70,000 freelancers, small business owners and their accountants. We’ve got a world-class NPS score and this role is an opportunity to make a real difference to people and their businesses as we work towards making them happier and more successful by putting them in control of their finances.

We’re looking for an experienced senior software engineer to join our Workflow team. You’ll work with a collaborative group of engineers, designers and product managers, helping customers to nail the daily admin of running their business.

It’s an exciting time for the Workflow team; as well as being responsible for the majority of the user facing sections of the app we’re currently adding in new features to make it quicker and easier for our customers to classify their transactions.

Our engineers have varied programming backgrounds, though on Workflow we primarily work with Ruby on Rails and JavaScript. You don’t have to have these skills; our on-boarding programme will get any experienced engineer up to speed on our stack fast.

Your typical week will involve:

Work environment

This is a full time permanent position, working from our lovely offices at Edinburgh Quay (convenient for Haymarket train station and airport links), or you can work remotely elsewhere in the UK - in fact, over 40% of our engineering team are fully remote.

We encourage continual self-development and hold bi-annual company hack days. We work smarter, not harder, and try to have fun doing it! We want people to feel nurtured and at ease to be themselves, so they feel empowered and engaged to do their best work. We value our diverse team, and the variety of experiences and backgrounds only make us stronger.
