Life as a Software Engineer at StarLeaf

At StarLeaf you will be responsible for the detailed design, coding, testing and support of complex systems across a wide range of technologies and programming languages focusing on C, C++, Python and JavaScript, but extending to C#, Java, Swift and others as required for the project and platform.

We develop for mobile, the desktop and our own bespoke ranges of meeting room systems. Our products run on Linux, Windows, macOS, Android and iOS, across a range of computer architectures, ensuring a breadth and diversity of technologies.

We organise our teams into small groups and you will be assigned a mentor to give you the necessary day to day guidance and support as you undertake your first projects with us.

Every engineer at StarLeaf has autonomy and responsibility for their own projects - something that is simply not available at many other companies. StarLeaf is growing rapidly, so there is ample opportunity for specialising in the areas that interest you most and as your career progresses with us, we work hard with you to find new learning and development activities - no matter what your level of experience.

And while a lot has changed since StarLeaf was founded in 2008, collaboration, creativity and inclusivity are still a key part of our culture. We believe everyone at StarLeaf has a part to play in our success and should be rewarded for their contribution. This is why every single permanent StarLeaf employee becomes a shareholder through the company’s share option scheme.
