The Technical Environment
We have an established set of web-based products including live scoring, match statistics, tournament management and online booking systems. Visitor and view numbers can be very high for our websites, especially during live sporting events.
All of our services are hosted in the Cloud on AWS. Most of our products run on a LAMP/LEMP stack, and we are migrating some of these to serverless technologies such as Lambda, SNS and DynamoDB. We are also interested in the potential of emerging technologies, such as AI.
We’re looking for a confident and experienced Software Engineer who will thrive in an agency environment. You will have experience working to deadlines, juggling several projects simultaneously and will have seen several projects through to completion. You will be able to take a holistic view of a project, understanding that code is only complete once it’s pushed live. You will be adaptable to change and will know how to plan for all eventualities. At Sotic we deliver beyond the build and you will need to be committed to a project beyond launch – recognising the need for continuous improvement.
