We are looking for a talented Software Engineer to join our exciting team in Dundee, working as part of our core engineering team on the WRLD platform. If you’re excited by the prospect of being at the core of a small and innovative team, I suggest you read on.

Working at WRLD means you’ll always be working on something interesting. From matching GPS traces to road-graphs to generating procedural road casings, we frequently work on challenging problems.

We pride ourselves on being agile and pragmatic, working at a swift, sustainable pace to deliver early and often. We are working with a mix of established and emerging technologies such as C++, iOS, C# and Cloud Computing. You’ll get a chance to work with all of them. You’ll never be a cog in the machine at WRLD, as we expect our team to be flexible and adaptable.

Our agile development approach and regular reviews of working practises mean that learning and improvement are integral to our day-to-day working lives. As a small studio, we are always striving for ways to be more effective. We do this through frequent, open communication, tight collaboration between disciplines and an absolute minimum of bureaucracy.

We think this provides the perfect environment for us to realise our full potential as developers. We are making a place where good people can become great.
