Software Engineer


Continuum Industries is looking for a Software Engineer to join the team full time in our Appleton Tower office in Edinburgh from June 2019 onwards.

We’re on a mission to automate and optimise design of the world’s transport systems. If you want to help bring 21st century tech like evolutionary algorithms & AI to an old-fashioned infrastructure industry, then keep on reading!

Continuum Industries is building tools that will enable new modes of transport such as hyperloop & autonomous vehicles and will be like a breath of fresh air for more conventional modes like high-speed rail and highways.

The company was formed in 2018 by graduates from Edinburgh University and Heriot-Watt University, who were previously part of the student hyperloop team - HYPED. We raised seed investment from Gareth Williams (ex-CEO of Skyscanner) and we’re now gearing up to release our first software product to the world’s largest engineering firms.

We’re looking for a developer who will help to take the software from technology to product and will join us on the journey of growing the company.

You will join a small & flexible team to work on projects that involve:

  • Full stack developments towards AWS

  • Genetic algorithms, AI, data science

  • Microservice architecture, networking

  • Continuous integration and delivery

  • Working with cool people 🔥🔥🔥

We offer:

  • Small and young team environment - our oldest person is 28! 💀

  • Decent salary, share options, pension and great office coffee served by the CEO

  • Ownership of your work and lots of independence

  • Sweet view from the 8th floor of Appleton Tower

  • Exposure to big engineering companies and the startup world


  • Computer science degree OR equivalent software development experience

  • Python & C++ as minimum (additional points for Matlab)
