Senior Software Engineer SW036


Full time

We are scaling the company, which means that we have an opportunity for an additional Senior Software Engineer to join our Software API team. We need someone who cares about software excellence and who is able to leverage their customer support and integration experience to ensure our existing technology successfully enters production in our customers’ projects.

This is a great career opportunity for an experienced engineer with good coding skills to work on really challenging technology, learn new skills and develop their career in one of Cambridge’s most exciting start-ups.

What you will do:
Reporting to the Team Lead, and working closely with the relevant Product Manager, you will:

  • help to integrate our public API into customers’ products
  • deploy existing interfaces and extend our core C++ algorithms and functionality to meet the specific requirements of each customer use case
  • take a leading role in the maintenance of our various documentation, test, build and delivery systems as we scale to support a larger variety of deployments
  • leverage your excellent coding experience to help review other developers’ code and mentor less experienced colleagues as well as being responsible for your own work

It is important that you are happy working in a small team in a fast-moving start up environment, where every day brings new challenges and where you will have the opportunity to learn quickly. It is also important that you are happy working within the framework of our company values and that you will be able to live these values in your career with us.

In the current situation, we are all working remotely. While we will offer you support and help to get up to speed quickly, you must be happy to integrate into a new team and company while working independently. In due course we will return to our office on Cambridge University’s West Campus, but even then, we plan to offer a mixture of home and office-based work to all our team members.

 What we need:

  • experience of configuring software integration to customer requirements
  • experience of development on multiple architectures and operating systems: Linux is a requirement
  • excellent technical writing skills
  • excellent modern C++
  • familiarity with CMake
  • familiarity with Android: apps/JNI or HAL
  • demonstrable ability to thrive in a fast-moving commercial environment
  • demonstrable ability to produce clear, well structured, robust and algorithmically efficient code

What would make your application stand out:

  • Confluence/Jira
  • Python 3
  • customer support experience
  • embedded software – for example, Yocto
  • familiarity with audio and video file formats
  • software release management
