Guildhawk, in collaboration with Sheffield Hallam University, is seeking to recruit a Senior Software Developer to join our rapidly expanding team. As part of the team, you will work on the design and development of innovative tech offerings that are core to the company’s strategic vision, as well as developing state-of-the-art solutions for our clients.
About the company
Guildhawk is an ethical and successful technology and language company, winner of the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade. Clients include Shell International, TikTok, Universal Studios and PWC. Backed by the Innovate UK Scale Up Programme, the company is a highly productive global operation that puts the training of young graduates, creation of skilled jobs and innovation before profit.
Most organisations depend on hiring talent from outside; Guildhawk believes in harnessing the ambition and skills of its own people and creating opportunities for them. It encourages everyone to dream harder and achieve great things, and places great importance on ethical business practices.
Technology is in Guildhawk’s DNA, and, with decades of experience in multilingual big data, Guildhawk has developed and launched a number of ground-breaking innovations powered by AI, machine learning and natural language processing.
You will be required to work remotely and potentially attend bi-monthly in-person office days, depending on location.

During interview, you will be asked to talk about your technical work, and describe your project roles. Full details of the technical work to be examined will be provided in the interview pack.
Whilst this role is unlikely to be suitable for work on a job share basis, we understand the need for a healthy work-life balance, so where possible we operate a number of flexible working schemes.
