Scientific SW Engineer (R&D) (23465)

to c£52,000 + Benefits

C# .NET, Problem Solving, Databases, Electronics, Innovation, Science / Maths

Based in Cambridge with ambitious on-track plans to rapidly expand their teams, our client has previously taken products to market but now are commercialising stealth projects for novel product development. These applied projects are based on a robust approach to technical problem solving – through experimentation, hands-on optimisation as well as out-of-the-box thinking.

They currently are looking for a bright, degree qualified, applied software engineer to join their multidisciplinary engineering / scientific team. The current codebase is mostly in C#, and most new development will be working on new aspects. Moreover, they are looking for someone who would be at home writing user interfaces, algorithms and analytical tools, as well as understanding how constrained environments work and memory allocation; but most importantly, will enjoy working within a multidisciplinary science team.

There’s no specific background profile or career history (you may have worked on financial analytics, database tools or applied scientific software) but you’ll have a good understanding of what you can (and cannot) do with C#. Further, you’ll probably know your way around other languages (C, C++. Java or Python), how to manipulate databases (SQL), and familiar with hardware (at least in principle). Other technology areas of interest include: image processing, instrumentation controls, analytics, algorithm development or maths modelling.
