A fast growing start-up making a positive difference to people's lives

This is a creative role developing C++ software to drive technology that enhances people’s well-being. While much of your time can be spent working from home (at present) you will need to be close enough to Cambridge to be able to get into the office to exchange hardware or resolve an issue on the bench.

As a Senior Software Engineer you will have broad knowledge of developing software and preferably involvement in API creation. This will be combined with a solid understanding of software development processes. These fundamentals will be backed up by good grades and a top STEM degree. Further, during your career so far, you will have gained most of the following skills:

  • Excellent knowledge of modern C++
  • Familiarity with multi-threaded / multiprocessor programming
  • Exposure to API development
  • Knowledge of development on multiple architectures and operating systems: Linux is a requirement
  • Desirable experience includes use of Android: apps / JNI or HAL

This is your chance to join a high-growth company at a key stage in their development, rewarded with a competitive salary and stock options. Here they work with trust and respect of each other in a welcoming environment just to the edge of Cambridge city. Home working is proving effective for this company hence long term they expect to retain a proportion of remote working within R&D. All the time you will have the backing of a friendly and very cooperative bunch of talented engineers happy to assist. Their product will be of major benefit to many people's lives, especially the elderly.
