About the Role
As a Software Engineer you will be working in one of our scrum teams, building new functionality, and scaling our platform to deal with our ever increasing customer and data volumes. Working in the Product Engineering team, you’ll work alongside Product Managers, Quality Assurance Engineers, and many other talented people. We ship regularly, with automated deployments at the click of a button, and when you join us, we want you to ship code to production in your first sprint. We prioritise customer success; and we’re rigorous about security at every stage of the development lifecycle. Some of our problems are unique to large software – dealing with large datasets, maintaining very high throughput, and 24/7 platform uptime.
We use the leading cloud providers to power the Dotdigital platform and process millions of pieces of data every day for some of the world’s largest companies, so there’s plenty to get your teeth into. For this role, we’re looking for someone who’s got strong and current C# skills, with experience in web too. Managing large volumes of data is core to everything we do, so experience in working in high performance environments will be a huge plus.
We’re remote! Our product and technical teams are currently based in the UK, Poland, and South Africa and our 180 team members all work from home. We do make office and co-working spaces available, but that choice is up to you. We keep in touch with each other via Slack and Zoom and have a great collaborative culture. To top up our social batteries, we all meet up quarterly in person (we have a meetup per country) and work together for a day, and let off some steam with activities or tech talks.
The Product Engineering team has five department values that we use to guide us, and we hope they’ll resonate with you. They are:
- Shipping fast, sustainably
- Be excellent to each other
- Communication makes us stronger
These are the essential technical skills we need you to bring to us
- Solid C# .NET skills (we build with dotnet 6+, but have some 4.8 too)
- Experience with web development using technologies such as Typescript/ES6, and Angular
- SQL Server
- Experience of working within a software engineering team (git, PRs, scrum, agile, etc) - ideally a remote-first team.
You’ll likely also get involved with some of the following, so experience would be a plus
- Google BigQuery
- Azure Service Bus
- Azure DevOps
- .NET MVC / WebApi
- High performance / big data systems
- Multitenant systems
- Information security
Don’t just take our word for it - hear what your future colleagues have to say about working in our team:
"Working at Dotdigital is a fulfilling experience. The job's nature and flexibility, combined with strong ethics, create a fantastic work environment. The camaraderie within the team is outstanding, ensuring you're never working alone—truly a great company with great people."
Unarine - Integrations Engineer
- 15min Screening Call with Team Talent

- We’ll have a final video interview, with at least one of our Group Engineering Managers involved. We’ll talk tech and projects again, but we really encourage questions during this phase. We’re happy to discuss our tech stack, our ambitions, current problems, our processes, or anything else that’s on your mind – nothing’s off limits.
