C Software Engineer - embedded OS (26688)

To £55k DoE + benefits

Developing high integrity software for embedded control systems

Are you interested in helping develop embedded software architectures to underpin future transport technologies? This accomplished Cambridgeshire development team is seeking a talented embedded C developer to help them do just this. If you can write efficient and reliable C code and have a good understanding of scheduling, communications, memory management and other such topics we would like to hear from you.

In this role, you would be involved at all stages of development, from defining requirements, to prototyping, implementing, and testing and deployment. They have plenty of hardware to share around the team, so you will get to see your software working on your desk. Work can be done remotely when it is feasible to do so.

You will need:

  • A 1st or 2.1 degree in computer science, electronics, or similarly relevant subject from a well-respected university.
  • Excellent C coding skills including experience developing code for embedded applications. You will need to be able to create high quality, reliable, and maintainable software.
  • A strong understanding of concepts, such as multithreading, memory management, and common low level communications buses. Experience developing high integrity software within a regulated industry such as automotive or aerospace would be an advantage, as would experience of working within an Agile team.
  • Sponsorship can’t be provided, so you will need full existing work permission for the UK.

On offer are a competitive salary and benefits package, interesting projects, working with a friendly and enthusiastic team, and scope for taking on additional responsibilities and progressing in your career.
