Compsci Problem Solver, Sensors / IoT / Software (23605)

Cambridge, Cambridgeshire
to £60k depending on experience

mission criticial robotics, compsci, analysis, client facing troubleshooter

Are you looking to make use of your computer science background, but not as a coder? Perhaps you have coding skills, like an intellectual challenge, but don’t want to be “turning the handle” on line of business software…

This top Cambridge company produce sensor-laden smart devices and powerful supporting software. Together these keep a watchful eye on high-tech production lines around the globe. In this key role you will offer consultancy and advice to clients, and troubleshoot mission critical software and hardware deployments.

You will bring a computer scientist’s understanding of relevant technologies, which include:

  • Distributed systems, IoT, embedded systems and OS
  • Streaming, datagram, wireless and packet switched networking e.g. TCP/IP, UDP, HTTP, DNS, 802.11

This is a client-facing role and can be fast paced. Your clear thinking, calm and intellect will be put to good use, as will be your ability to think laterally, remain positive, prioritise, and cultivate good working relationships with other experts.

If you have deeper coding knowledge, that would be advantageous – but is not a key part of the job, nor required. To meet academic requirements, you will hold a good degree in a physical science or engineering subject from a top university, and strong A-level grades.

Clients are global, so from time to time you will need to speak urgently with engineers in Asia and the Americas allowing for the time zone differences. Candidates who enjoy travel will appreciate the occasional expenses-paid trips to high-tech centres around the world.

Interested? Send a CV to ECM Selection which clearly conveys your suitability for this particular role. We can only put forward the top few candidates, but we read every CV and try to respond to everyone. Or recommend a friend for £250 –
