Senior C++ Developer: algorithms / optimisation (23641)

£Excellent + top benefits

Cambridge, C++, numerical, maths, analysis, optimisation, algorithms, top quals

This Cambridge-based company is an intellectual hotbed of algorithmic C++ developers. Their software tools are used by some of the most prominent electronics / IC designers worldwide to optimise and improve designs and layout of commercial chipsets. Their focussed team works on optimisation and analysis of numerically intensive C++, and the development of new algorithms used by their modelling software.

They are seeking a Senior C++ Developer to grow their team. Candidates will need to demonstrate:

  • excellent commercial experience with object-oriented C++ code;
  • experience working in a dynamic, Agile environment;
  • a solid background in mathematics (perhaps even with a first degree in maths);
  • a top academic background (a 1st or 2.1 Honours degree in mathematics or computer science from a top Russell Group university);
  • familiarity with clear and concise documentation of mathematically-intensive code.

This role will also involve liaising closely with other development teams around the world. Excellent communication skills and an inquisitive mind-set will be crucial to success. Experience working with or managing overseas teams will be warmly welcomed.

Candidates should be UK-based, and we can only consider candidates with existing permission to work in the UK without sponsorship or restriction already in place. On offer for the right candidate will be an excellent salary and benefits package, working in a prime Cambridge location in modern and friendly offices. In time, management opportunities may also become available. If you think this sounds like the role for you, and want to work alongside similar, bright and successful developers – send your CV in now!
