Software Applications Engineer, C / Linux, Networking products, North Cambridge, to £60,000 / extensive benefits package

Are you a bright Software Developer with excellent "people" skills, looking for a role with more variety and people contact - or for your first move into a customer focussed role? Are an experienced Software Applications Engineer seeking a new challenge?

This Software Applications Engineer role offers variety, challenging technical work, great people contact and an excellent salary and package (to £60k depending on experience + share options, private health/ dentistry, critical illness cover, employer contribution to pension).

With continued growth, this leading international company now seek further Software Applications / Customer-facing Engineers to join their Applications Support team - working with their customers to help them understand, digest, tune and troubleshoot next generation networking software - an open source, high performance, TCP/IP stack - written in C.

You will also work closely with the software development and test teams to investigate any issues with an extensive network adapter product range which is used globally by customers.

This is a highly technical role using a substantial software code base written in C. It would suit a bright C / Linux software developer - possibly someone looking to move from a software development background into their first customer focussed role - as previous application / support experience is not required. In addition to excellent written / verbal communication skills, you must have the ability to learn quickly, to provide guidance, support and consultancy to customers.

With an impressive academic background (good degree from a good university) you should have a strong proficiency in C. Any knowledge of Linux, Networking (TCP/IP / Ethernet), socket programming would be a huge advantage.

In addition to a competitive salary, depending on experience, the excellent benefits package includes share options, private health / dentistry, critical illness cover and employer contribution to pension.
