Riskhub Limited

Software Engineer

London, Farringdon, United Kingdom

Hello there. We’re  Riskhub.

Since starting our journey in 2016, we have built the UK’s leading property compliance solution, providing powerful risk management to organisations with property portfolios.

But it’s more than just compliance. We are setting a new industry standard.

Our SaaS solution simplifies the end-to-end compliance lifecycle from scheduling and digital recordings of buildings, such as fire risk assessments, to managing issues found during inspections and providing a golden thread of data across the process. Our solution takes away client stress of ensuring that their properties are meeting legal requirements and allows them to focus on providing their residents with great service with the assurance that their buildings are safe.

  • can write, debug and optimise SQL queries

Work location

The role is based in our London hub, located in Farringdon for 3 days a week. We prioritise diversity and inclusion, recognising the importance of representing our diverse customer base. We strive to attract the best talent and create an environment that supports and includes all individuals

Interview process

Our goal is to keep the interview process fairly simple to keep you engaged, but thorough enough to help us each understand if we’re a good fit for each other. 

This is what the process will look like for this role:

  • Step 1: 30-min initial meeting to get to know each other with a Software Engineer  discuss your background and past experiences – so that we can understand if your skills and expertise match what we’re looking for

  • Step 2: During a second, technical, interview we’d either like to see some of your code or ask you to code review some of ours

Throughout the process we’ll give you insights into Riskhub, our current product suite and vision for the future. We welcome any questions as we want to make sure you’re joining a team and company you’ll be excited to be part of. 

If you’d like to, we’ll also be able to arrange for you to meet more people from the team.
