Working on a game-changer!

orbit are partnered with a reputable and top-tier digital media & entertainment company to help them deliver a game-changing product that is set to disrupt the market they operate in.

The Role

As Senior Software Engineer you will join an established division that is considered as the backbone of the company, connecting products to customers and building new platforms and apps to help streamline services. Working in a tech-centric environment, you will play a pivotal role in a product that is set out to disrupt the marketplace.

What are your objectives

Due to the seniority of this role your objective will be two-fold; you will be expected to manage scrums, provide mentoring/coaching wherever possible, maintain a idea sharing and encouraging environment, whilst also using your technical hands-on knowledge/experience of coding, microservices, REST APIs etc. to contribute to the streamlining of services, building new platforms & apps, digital transformations and much, much more.

What experience will help

  • Must be an excellent communicator - you'll be the focal point for a team of junior & mid-level Developers who will look to you for advice, mentoring, and input.
  • Having good commercial awareness and business experience will come in handy, as you'll be expected to gain a good understanding of 'the bigger picture' and how you can drive the team and products toward that.
  • Experience working in a similar sector would be beneficial.
  • Working with 'big data', as there is a lot of data innovation.
  • Being able to rebuild platforms to make them more efficient, quicker, and more defined.


By joining this company, you will be part of one of the biggest market-disruptions to date. You'll join a 'tech-centric' company that is always pushing for innovation and has a constantly evolving tech-stack, so you'll be adding to your skill set continuously. With continued growth year-on-year, there is room to go into Lead positions, or if you want to take a new direction with your career then there is more than enough projects and diversification to provide you with what you need.


A very modern approach to working and how to treat employees, the trust and freedom you're provided will be second to none. There is a great collective of talented engineers of all levels who all love to learn and are encouraged to push for new ideas - whether that be you creating prototypes for your new ideas, or pitching in on one of the whiteboarding sessions etc. You are encouraged to express yourself as you please, and you'll operate with the ethos of 'you build it, you run it, you own it', so you'll get great ownership of projects too. Their constant striving to be the best across all facets of the business, along with the exciting products they work on as well as their plans in place for changing the normality of services we're used to, is exactly why orbit are happy to represent them as a client.
