Mid-Level / Senior Software Engineer (25037)

Cambridge, UK
to £50,000 DoE + benefits

Good pay, interesting projects, supportive company culture

Are you looking for that next position – somewhere you can take technical project leadership and use your developed C programming and engineering skills? This Cambridge based company develop Linux tools that are used by a number of customers. Their technology works at the OS level providing a clear view of possibly underlying problems.

As the company grows, they are looking for experienced software engineers who want to join a team where they can take technical responsibilities on projects.


  • Degree qualified and 2+ years of hands-on commercial experience with C and Python coding on Linux. Will have gained knowledge about compilers and the Linux kernel.
  • Further experience with JITs or other code generators; or low level code would be desirable.

Interested candidates are expected to talk about computer architecture at interview, and best programming practices from an applied perspective (rather than theoretical approaches).

On offer is the opportunity to work on truly interesting projects (if you are keen on Linux), and be rewarded with an excellent remunerations package.

Keywords: Linux, C, Python, Compilers, Kernel, OS, Project Ownership, Central Cambridge
