Senior Software Engineer

Bright Interactive is a team of experienced highly technical web software developers in Brighton, UK. We use agile techniques to develop web applications and bespoke software for clients all over the world.

Join our friendly and supportive team

Would you like to join a small innovative team, focused on delivering intelligent products to engaged clients? We’re looking for a Senior Software Engineer with a proven track record at architecting and developing distributed backend systems - preferably in an agency environment. Quality is paramount in everything we do, with a passion for clean, well-tested code crucial to our team.

Bright Interactive is an established software development agency based in central Brighton. We develop dynamic and intelligent software applications and websites that help businesses thrive. We’ve been doing this for almost twenty years, driven by the desire to produce technically excellent, valued products for ambitious clients of all sizes in many sectors. We are privileged to work with over 700 clients including IKEA, ITV, Coca-Cola, and Unicef - both through the development of custom web applications, and through our main product Asset Bank.

This hands-on development role is in our Custom Team, working with a mix of clients on interesting and interactive applications.

The tech stack we currently work with includes:

Backend developer icons
  • Kotlin
  • Spring Boot
  • Redis
  • Postgres
  • RabbitMQ
  • GraphQL
  • React
  • Typescript
  • Heroku

However, we adapt this stack depending on the projects we work on, utilising the best technology for the client’s requirements. As a senior member of our team, there will also be responsibility for mentoring other members of the team and assisting with their technical development.

Working in an agency environment provides many well-known perks - such as the scope to experiment with new technologies, direct collaboration with clients who are using the systems developed, and the opportunity to work on varied projects and domains. Here at Bright, we strive to also provide the benefits of working on a product - such as longer-term projects, focus on code quality, and access to specialists in different technologies.
