Consultancy, advice and investigation for technical clients

This role will see you engaging with engineering teams outside the company, providing investigative support and troubleshooting for high performance, open source software.

You will have:

  • A good degree in computing or an otherwise numerate subject from a top university, backed by strong A-level grades
  • An appreciation of commercial C software development practices
  • Great technical communication skills, including discussing complex issues with fellow developers both verbally and in writing

There is potential for some remote work, perhaps 2-3 days per week, for a candidate located close to Cambridge. This would be discussed at interview, and is not guaranteed at this time, but it may well prove possible.
