Software Engineer / Developer

Bath, England, United Kingdom · SED2


Would you like to help build and launch brilliant products in a cutting edge, fun, creative environment with a great team?

We’re looking for passionate full-stack, backend and frontend software engineers with experience delivering challenging software projects and who would enjoy working in a forward thinking and progressive company. We are growing a diverse team, and offer a very flexible working environment.

At Rocketmakers, our passion is for turning ideas and visions into brilliant software products. Our customers love our passion for innovation and cutting edge technology, as well as the efficient output that comes from strong cooperation and a wealth of experience within the team. We are a fun and supportive team based in Bath and we’re looking for the next Rocketmakers to join us.


You’ll enjoy keeping a keen eye on developments at the cutting edge of software development, platforms, architecture and patterns. You will be passionate about doing things the right way and building software that makes a difference to people’s lives. You will be interacting with clients on a regular basis, understanding their needs and communicating effectively.

We advocate the use of open source software and encourage our developers to contribute to the open source community. We also open source our own projects like Armstrong React.

As a Rocketmakers software engineer you’ll have core technology skills and will make decisions around the specific needs of projects. We’re looking at your flexibility, and ability to develop as new technologies evolve, rather than your current skills.

How we work

We work in close, multi-skilled teams made up of some of the best designers, developers and architects in the industry. We’re always looking to improve our processes and operate in a very agile manner – Kanban or Scrum as appropriate.

We work on technically complex projects for great brands such as UK Sport, English Institute of Sport, Zendesk, BBC and Microsoft as well as innovative early-stage and funded start-ups who want to do good while doing well (such as Neighbourly and Pure Planet).


The best bit about Rocketmakers is the amazing team. We’ve been around for over 10 years and built a reputation for quality and innovation which is second to none. The directors of the business have considerable tech and consultancy experience and still own 100% of the company. We’ve been consistently profitable and have grown responsibly from day one, with no money spent on advertising and all clients coming to us by word of mouth.

We are based in the centre of Bath and are a big part of the brilliant Bath and Bristol community around us. We run the React South West meetup group and are active sponsors of local organisations and event such as The Guild, CreativeBath, SiliconGorge, TechSPARK and many more.

You’ll be well fed (we get together for a team breakfast every Friday), enjoy unlimited holiday (within reason!), and be invited to numerous team events (from BBQs to baking, board games and poker nights). We offer very competitive salaries, pension, a very relaxed but professional atmosphere, and much much more.

Salary is dependent on experience, but in the region of £30k - £50k per year.
