Software R&D Engineer (24987)

to £40k DoE + excellent benefits

Unique, varied (and Brexit-proof) developer role with a world-leading R&D team

This is an excellent opportunity for someone looking for a change from desk-bound developer roles and oppressive corporate deadlines and cultures.

Joining a small tight-knit developing world-leading maritime technology. The role offers considerable variety and involves collecting data, refining and implementing algorithms for complex data processing, performing demonstrations, and preparing and presenting conference papers. There is ample scope for both UK-wide, and (voluntary) international travel.

Our client is well-established organisation developing technology that underpins a vital public service. They have a relaxed office environment with an excellent work-life balance and mix of benefits including a superb pension scheme with up to 20% employer contribution. Their office locality is very different from that of the typical high-tech organisation; it is conveniently close to the local station and amenities as well as having its own particular attractions.

You will need the following skills and experience:

  • A good degree in Electronics, Computer Science or similarly applicable subject from a well-recognised university
  • Significant software development experience from a commercial role or perhaps postdoctoral study, with a solid understanding of the software development lifecycle and Agile principles
  • Excellent coding skills in C#, C++, Java or Python. With database, REST API, and web development skills also being highly prized
  • Strong communication skills, and collaborative hands-on approach
