This opportunity would appeal to a seasoned Software Engineer who can create, maintain and deliver Navigation software solutions, meeting internal and external customer requirements through all stages of the development lifecycle. Two positions are available - one at Engineer and one at Senior Engineer level.
The roles have arisen because there is an increase in embedded platform development work within the Engineering division and our client has recently been awarded two funded projects.
You’ll join an established software team comprising of a Software Manager, Principal Engineer, a Senior Embedded Software Engineer, 2 Systems Engineers, a Junior Engineer and a Senior Algorithm Developer.
• Educated to degree level i.e. BSc/BEng or equivalent qualification in a related discipline; such as Electronics, Physics or Computer Science

• Experience of hardware/software interfacing, particularly digital electronics
• Low-level communications experience e.g. TCP/IP, RS232/485, USB
• Competence in the use of algorithms and data structures

Working hours are 08:30-17:00, one hour for lunch. Some flexibility available.
This position would suit an experienced Software Engineer rather than a candidate that needs development into the role.
