Are you about to complete either a PhD or a degree in a numerate subject and are expecting either a 1st or a high 2.1, backed by top grades at A-level? Perhaps you also have some commercial experience where you have used your excellent skills in programming, simulation, algorithm design? Either way, if you are quick to pick up new skills, and keen to take charge of complex and innovative technology projects from the word go, we may have just the challenge for you.

Our client works on exciting high-tech projects in aerospace, communications and or defence sectors, and are looking for a broad spectrum of skills. Your experience may include any of:

  • algorithm development or programming in C, C++ for image or signal analysis
  • numerical modelling, simulation and data analysis
  • data visualisation and UI for either embedded or desktop systems, including skills in Java or HTML / JavaScript

Common to all of the above will be an excellent understanding of physics and engineering from first principles and the motivation to take on complex technical challenges.

The consultancy is based in modern offices with high-spec labs and prototyping facilities on site. With excellent transport links in the area, the company is easily commutable from either London or Surrey. For the top candidates who have what it takes to impress, a good salary and benefits package is on offer, in a friendly and welcoming environment which focusses on rapid career development.
