In this technically challenging role as a Senior Software Engineer – Linux / C you will join a development team working on the design and development of new features; debugging of issues that may be complex in nature and span multiple components; making speed/quality improvements; exploiting innovative processor architectures and potentially representing the development team on Open Source mailing lists.

  • Experience working in an Open Source development model
  • Development on a Linux platform
  • Knowledge of Operating Systems/Networking/Computer architecture
  • Understanding of Linux kernel internals, performance analysis and networks

This opportunity will give you exposure at all levels of software development from low level interfacing to hardware right up to application designing. An excellent opportunity to work in a company created and still managed by the original founders. They are situated in a pleasant building within walking distance of Cambridge City centre.

This company also has a position for a recent graduate or post doc working on the same team.
