Software Engineer

Working closely with our developers and engineers, we require a talented candidate to develop software for a wide range of applications. A large part of the role will be developing systems to gather, present and analyse measurement data recorded and remotely retrieved from industrial assets, as well as implementing software services to run on our bespoke gateways (devices which link our edge IoT wireless measurement devices with our central servers).

The reliability and quality of our systems are of paramount importance, and we take great care to thoroughly test our products to maintain this standard. A significant part of your role will be to optimise and troubleshoot code, and conduct exhaustive, systematic testing on our products.

You will have the capability to drive a project from inception through to completion, including design, implementation, testing, documentation, installation and support.

Although primarily software-focused, the ideal candidate should have a holistic understanding of our systems, and so a general working knowledge of electronics and/or mechanical engineering would be beneficial.

We encourage you to apply, even if you feel you do not yet meet all the requirements (but would like to learn to do so) – we are happy to help with mentoring you, and provide guidance and training required for you to progress your career.

  • Experience with the Git version control system.
  • Knowledge of Test-Driven Development techniques and SOLID principles.

  • An awareness of cyber security considerations at all levels of development.
  • An understanding of typical networking infrastructure, including VPNs.
  • A history of providing constructive peer-based code-reviews for colleagues.
