Software Application Developer

The Position - Software Application Developer (south oxfordshire)

We are looking for a talented software developer, ideally with experience of working with embedded systems or integrated hardware, to join an expanding R&D team within a dynamic, high-tech and forward-thinking organisation.

The role will involve working with the rest of the software team to support the re-development of our commercial applications to ensure they run cross-platform and are fully integrated with our radar systems. The goal is to take our world class solutions to an unmatched level of sophistication, security and flexibility.

The team uses a range of development technologies, including the latest web technologies, .NET C# and the newer generation of C++. Our aim is for developers to be able to work with any technology. So through support from the team and training, we will help team members develop new skills and enhance existing ones. Unlike larger companies we can offer you exposure to all our development technologies including a close working relationship with our hardware developers. Any member of our team, regardless of age or experience, is expected to drive change and contribute to the continuous improvement of our products and processes. We have a proud history of engineering excellence and we live and die by the quality of our products.

To fit into the environment, you will need to be an energetic individual who is used to consistently delivering quality work under pressure. This is a demanding, yet exciting role in a small business within which you can make a very large impact with plenty of scope for personal growth and development.

You must have an appropriate technical degree or higher with a solid maths background. We are expecting a strong track record of application software development which must include .NET experience and preferably C++. Experience with any hardware-software integration work will be a significant advantage, but we are happy to consider suitable candidates with a keen interest to work in this field.
