£35k - £55k DoE + benefits

Apply mathematical problem solving and C++ skills for optimal electronic design

Looking for a role with more time spent solving mathematical problems than coding? If so, this may be the job you need.

This company uses complex algorithms to generate tailored hardware designs. They are seeking a highly capable Mathematical C++ Software Engineer to join their team. In this technically demanding role, you will apply your analytical skills to find methods of optimising candidate solutions for different criteria, implementing your algorithms in C++.

You will need:

  • A 1st or 2.1 in physics, mathematics, or similar numerate STEM subject together with a PhD in a relevant subject area. Your university grades will be supported by mostly A*s or As at A-level (or equivalent).
  • Excellent C or C++ coding skills
  • Ideally some knowledge of Verilog; scripting skills in TCL would also be a bonus.
  • You should be dynamic and self-motivated, and able to turn ideas into reality, on your own and as part of a team.

You will be joining a team of friendly, dedicated and very bright engineers working on challenging and interesting work. This is an excellent opportunity to join a leading company developing the best in hardware design technology. As an established company they offer a competitive salary and comprehensive benefits package. Once up to speed and actively contributing, there is potential scope for remote work for part of the week.
