Development of in-house tools and test suites alongside the development team

This is a great role for a Software Engineer to join this team working on the design and development of leading-edge 3D software applications. This is a key role where you will focus on the quality of the software produced by the group - monitoring and analysing the quality of the pattern matching algorithms, the client-server application and their extensive suites of tools and plug-ins.

This role requires a rigorous analytical approach and will include the following responsibilities:

  • testing and analysing the core and related software products across a range of deployment environments
  • providing advice, tools and testing environments for the development team
  • ensuring ongoing quality of delivery to customers
  • verifying, researching and tracking reported customer issues
  • liaising with internal and external software teams

With a good degree in a numerate subject (e.g., mathematics, sciences, engineering, computer science) you should have existing experience of, or demonstrable enthusiasm for, development and/or testing of scientific or technical software, preferably in a commercial environment. You must also be proficient in at least one high-level programming language (C++, C# or similar). Specific knowledge of software quality and testing methodologies would be an advantage. Excellent communication and team working skills are essential along with good time management skills and an ability to communicate complex concepts in simple terms.

In addition to a good salary, the company offers a comprehensive benefits package.
