About us

TrustFlight is at the forefront of digitising the aviation industry with the creation of intelligent workflow applications that automate operating and maintenance processes, enabling our customers to focus on the data and insights that matter. TrustFlight has bases in both the UK (London & Leamington Spa) and Canada (Vancouver). Our business is rapidly expanding, and we’re proud to share that we’re entirely self-funded and consistently profitable. This is your opportunity to contribute to a thriving environment and make an impact as we continue to achieve new heights!

Not only are we disrupting the sector, we are creating a great place to work that gives our people the freedom to create, innovate and influence how we do this. We continue to build an amazing group of people who are all here to make our products, services and culture the most envied in the industry!

We are looking for skilled Senior Software Engineers to support our efforts to transform and re-architect a very successful SaaS platform. The project requires modernising the backend to aggressively optimise performance, migrating away from legacy .NET and making the platform more modular, facilitating redevelopment in JavaScript/React. In addition to the re-architecture, you will work alongside data engineers who will design data capture strategies to create new services. You will also work alongside AI engineers to upgrade digital workflows to become more highly automated with augmented decision support for our customers.

Alongside the re-architecture work, you will also support our existing team with day to day maintenance work on our existing platform.

Your role will inspire fresh ideas that encourage us to continuously learn and improve, allowing us to elevate our platform and bring out its full potential, making the aviation industry a more efficient and safer place to be. TrustFlight values leadership and performance as paramount within our team culture. In every role, we seek individuals who embody strength in leadership, are driven by objectives, and champions in exceeding expectations, inspiring those around them.


  • Support the redevelopment of our SaaS platform with a laser-focus on performance, helping drive modernisation and integration of AI-driven features.
  • Support our existing team with day to day maintenance work on our existing platform.
  • Leverage test automation and collaboration with QA Engineers to ensure all deliverables are robustly tested prior to release and quality KPIs are met.
  • Work with Technical Leads to help define and optimise technical processes to ensure efficiency and uphold quality standards.
  • Bring forth innovative ideas, even in situations where solutions seem limited, infusing a fresh perspective into our development approach.
  • Serve as the go-to expert for technical queries relating to your area(s) of ownership.
  • Contribute insightful perspectives that consider both technical and strategic aspects.
  • Maintain CI/CD pipelines, making effective use of automation to facilitate reliable, repeatable and well-tested builds.
  • Collaborate with Product Designers to ensure our design system is accurately applied.
  • Work closely with Software Engineers from other teams across the organisation to facilitate close integration of products and alignment to the overall technology strategy.
  • Mentor more junior software engineers via pairing and design/code reviews, helping to build a high-performing technical team.
