Applying your maths / physics background to a career in software

Can you offer solid mathematical knowledge backed by an impressive academic record? Would you enjoy working as part of a small, motivated software development team on the design and maintenance of complex, high-quality geometric modelling software?

This superb company designs sophisticated computer graphics, visualisation and solid modelling software components. They offer a dynamic, stimulating and informal working environment near to central Cambridge.

This role is perfect for a numerate problem solver, with good hands-on skills, who is able to take a fresh look at a problem and to understand and visualise the algorithms involved.

In addition to a top degree and/or PhD in a numerate subject (backed by excellent A-levels or equivalent) you should have proven algorithmic and numerical modelling skills. A good understanding of vector mathematics and 3D geometric modelling would be ideal.

Although software development fluency is not required (training can be provided) it is very likely that the right candidate would have a natural interest in computing and therefore a reasonable knowledge of coding – ideally using C / C++ or similar. You must of course be able to demonstrate a natural aptitude and an appetite for a career in software development!

At the more senior level, previous experience within CAD / CAM Software Development would be particularly relevant.

In addition to a competitive salary and an attractive benefits package, the role offers excellent career development prospects for the right candidate. Remote working may initially prove to be an option pending finalised working arrangements including time in the office in Cambridge.

Key skills: vector mathematics, 3D maths, spatial thinking, problem solving, C or C++, 3D graphics, visualisation.
