My client is a market leading manufacturer of technology for defence applications. Due to continued and sustained growth they are currently looking to add a Software Engineer to the development department on a permanent basis. The successful applicant will have extensive experience in Software design and development.

Please note that due to the sensitive nature of the products you must be able to obtain SC Clearance.

This role will give you the opportunity to work on next generation defence technologies with some of the best engineers in the industry; you will be part of the team developing solutions for the next generation of advanced missile systems, specifically in the Command and Control domain.

Role Scope:
You will be developing Command & Control application software for the next generation of Ground Based Air Defence Systems.
This is a hands-on role and requires the continued design and development of the Command and Control Product Line architecture and the instantiations for future products. You will be developing software in Rhapsody, DDS, and targeting both C++ and C languages.

Required Skills:
Ideally you will have a degree in Computer Science or Software Engineering combined with significant experience in the development of software for COTS hardware. You will have been responsible for complex software solutions and will be comfortable working with engineers from other disciplines and with international colleagues. It would be desirable, but not essential for your experience to have been gained in defence, automotive, aerospace, telecoms or consumer electronics.
You will favour a collaborative, open approach to development and have the ability to inspire others and maintain momentum during development. The software that you develop will be used across multiple products and sites, so strong communication skills and the ability to motivate others, as part of a team, are essential.
You will have extensive experience in model-based development, using UML and tools such as IBM Rhapsody.
You will have a background in software engineering with good knowledge of modern development practices. Knowledge of recognised industry development standards and restricted coding standards such as MISRA C would be desirable.
You will have significant previous experience with C++. It would be desirable for you to have knowledge of DDS middleware and Linux based Operating Systems.

Commutable from: Bristol, Cheltenham, Bath, Chippenham, Swindon, Cardiff, Stroud

Key Words: Software, Design, Development, Defence, Missile, C, C++, MISRA, Rhapsody, UML, DDS
