This pioneering technical powerhouse has been at the forefront of technical R&D in the UK for decades. Their products have found success across a number of industries, ranging from medical diagnostic technologies or secure communications equipment, through to high-value consumer goods or the latest machine learning applications to solve complex problems.

With a growing and ambitious software team, they are now seeking an experienced Software Developer to work on custom-built automated QA and test development for a variety of projects.

Candidates will need to demonstrate:

  • a solid academic background, with a 2.1 or above in Computer Science (or similar) from a top-ranked university (i.e. good A-level grades too);
  • solid commercial experience in software test development and creation of flexible and scalable test frameworks from scratch;
  • fluency with at least Python and C coding, though other languages will be beneficial too;
  • good knowledge of automation tools, modern development practices and source control.

Writing code that is designed to break other code and programs will be your passion, and you’ll have a keen and inquisitive mind to push other developers’ code right to the limit. Additional interests or experience with IoT technologies or embedded software would be a great plus.

On offer to the right candidate is a top-rated salary and benefits package, working in modern and comfortable offices in Cambridge. With excellent transport links very close to their location, this company is able to consider candidates from a range of geographic locations, although regrettably we are unable to consider candidates seeking remote working or who will require visa sponsorship to take up a position in the UK. Apply now to find out more details about this exciting opportunity.
