Does a new job sound good to you?

This is an interesting and varied opportunity for a Senior Software Engineer with an enthusiasm for audio technology.

The role encompasses the development of algorithms and products, using both low-level highly optimised C++ for embedded systems, and full fat C++ for servers and desktop systems. You would be developing new products as well as updating existing ones. Your work might typically involve:

  • Prototyping new signal processing algorithms using MATLAB then implementing them in C++
  • Adapting existing solutions to new processor architectures
  • Identifying root causes of issues and developing solutions
  • Developing automated tests to ensure a high quality product
  • Mentoring more junior team members

As a Senior Software Engineer, you would be joining a small, friendly start-up company creating innovative high-end audio products. They are already a commercial success and have products available in the consumer electronics market. The team culture is supportive, sociable, and dynamic, with a flat management structure, comfortable well-appointed offices and a flexible approach to working hours.

You should be able to demonstrate excellent coding skills, a pre-existing enthusiasm for audio technology, and a can-do attitude with a willingness to pick up new skills as needed and tackle an task that arises.

Specific skills and experience:

  • A 1st or 2.1 degree in Computer Science, or other applicable numerate subject from a leading university
  • Significant commercial software development experience including desktop and embedded systems. Linux, Windows and OS X are all relevant.
  • Excellent coding skills including C, C++, and a scripting language (Python, Ruby, Bash etc.), plus a solid understanding of audio or signal processing.
  • Full existing right to work in the UK without time limit or sponsorship

MATLAB skills are a bonus but not essential.
