Principal UX Engineer (24577)
An experienced front end developer with exceptional GUI design skills is required to lead and inspire their UX/human factors team in developing responsive ergonomic user interfaces to complement their state-of-the-art cybersecurity technology.
Working with a collaborative, multi-disciplinary development team, you will be instrumental in re-imagining and re-implementing the user interface driving our client’s embedded systems; playing a key role in their continued success by equipping their products with internationalised, user-friendly cross-platform user interfaces.
The role will involve liaising with clients, product and programme managers to define requirements and delivery goals, and working closely with other developers and test engineers to ensure the timely delivery of beautifully engineered, rugged software. You will be involved throughout the development life cycle, and be engaged in project planning, requirements capture, and team leading as well as implementation and debugging of complex interfaces. You will need to be a technology fanatic, evangelising and spreading the message of new technology, design excellence and engineering best practice.
Our client’s software is mission-critical to some of the world’s biggest corporations and government organisations, and as such they take quality very seriously. They invest heavily in providing a state-of-the-art, Agile working environment with an emphasis on training, personal growth and flexible collaborative working.
This would be a great career-building opportunity with an open-minded and forward thinking company where the right candidate can make a real difference. The role features a highly competitive salary and benefits package and can be based either Cambridge UK, or San Jose, California. As this is a principal level role some international travel and collaboration can be expected.
