About LloydsDirect

NHS prescriptions are complicated. And we want to change that. Driven by an innovative spirit and strong moral compass, we’re on a mission to make NHS prescriptions simple for everyone.

Since 2015 we’ve grown from a plucky start-up to a team of over 200 people – and become the fastest growing pharmacy in the UK. Today, over half a million people use our apps to manage their NHS prescriptions, and our patients rate us as ‘Excellent’ on Trustpilot.

But there’s so much more to do. Because while 1 in 2 adults in the UK has a repeat prescription, only 3.2% of them use an online pharmacy. And we need bright minds to help us change how people manage their medicine for good. 

True to our start-up roots, LloydsDirect has a supportive, entrepreneurial culture. We move fast, challenge the status quo, and always try to do the right thing. Sound good? Then we’d love to hear from you.

What you’ll do as Senior Software Engineer

As a senior engineer you will:

  • Understand our business goals and strategy and be able to make decisions based on them
  • Be able to take ambiguous problems, break them down, and help to find elegant solutions that don’t gloss over the details
  • Contribute to code shared across projects
  • Mentor other engineers through code reviews and pairing

This role is for you if:

  • You’re excited by the idea of working on a product that helps make people’s lives better
  • The technology we use sounds interesting to you (or you already know and love it)
  • Reading a 1500 page document on the Zebra programming language sounds like a fun afternoon
  • You like being able to dip in and out of different parts of the stack wherever you are most needed and are keen to get stuck into and learn about the parts you don’t know yet
  • You love mentoring other engineers and believe that doing it is at least as valuable as your work as an individual contributor

This role may not be for you if:

  • You’re more into quibbling about tech stacks or coding styles (we have linters for that) than creating a really great product
  • You measure your success by lines of code written over the impact it has
  • You only want to work off fully specified requirements and to not have to talk with your team mates
