You will be joining our team of over 1,000 highly skilled engineers at our Edinburgh site. This is a great opportunity to bring your talents to our world class facility and form an integral part of our future.
We are looking for creative thinkers who have a passion for applying technology to solve real world problems and developing our next generation of world beating products.
Job Description
Do you enjoy a challenge and want to create embedded software with tangible results?
The Software Engineering function in Edinburgh are recruiting and have multiple opportunities for software engineers to join our highly motivated multi-disciplinary teams. You will contribute to the solving of real-life engineering problems on exciting state-of-the-art avionics sensor systems such as: the radar for the Typhoon fighter jet; the radar for the SAAB Gripen fighter; our family of Surveillance AESA Radars (Active Electronically Scanned Array); an IRCM (Infra-Red Counter Measures) system; or perhaps one of our laser ranging systems.
We are using a model driven approach, so the ability to architect and design software is prime.
There are opportunities at all levels to align with your skills and experience: Software Engineer, Senior Software Engineer and Principal Software Engineer levels depending on the skills and experience of the candidate.

Key Responsibility Areas
*Your software skills will be utilised across the full software lifecycle from requirements analysis; through design, coding and unit test; to integrating software with the hardware target; and lastly to acceptance test and delivery to the customer.
*As a software engineer, you are responsible for creating high quality and robust designs and code; for fully documenting and recording your work products; keeping them under configuration management and providing plans and progress reports.
*Our software applications are varied including Radar control and mode selection, tracking, Signal Processing mode algorithms and hardware interfacing.
*You will develop practical skills in design techniques for aerospace applications, understanding of key processes and technologies, and develop software using state-of-the-art modelling tools, compilers and test environments.
*You will work closely with Systems and Electronics engineers to solve real integration problems on complex systems.
*Depending on your level of experience, you may be required to supervise a small team of engineers and you will then be responsible for planning and managing the work for yourself and your team; for coaching more junior team members and ensuring a robust engineering solution for the team's work packages.
*There may be opportunities to contribute towards the investigation and analysis of leading edge development methodologies and influence the future path of software development.
*Most training will be delivered via on-the-job experience working in software teams within project groups delivering sensor systems to our customers. Additional formal technical training to augment the on-the-job training may be provided via taught courses depending on the business needs.

Skills, Qualifications & Experience Required
*Ideally you will possess a 2:1, or better, relevant science based honours degree e.g. Software Engineering, Computer Science, Physics, Mathematics or Electronic Engineering (BSc (Hon)/ BEng (Hon)/ MEng) with at least 2 years' experience of developing software in industry. You may also have worked in a research and development organisation and want to further your career.
*Programming in an object-oriented programming language. We use C++.
*OOD (Object Oriented Design) and UML (Unified Modelling Language)
*Developing software for a real-time embedded environment.
*MDE (Model Driven Engineering)
*Our toolset includes: Rhapsody, MatLab/Simulink, VxWorks, DOORS, Dimensions, JIRA. Experience of some of these, or similar tools, is an advantage but not essential

So now you're part of our team…

You will benefit from everything you would expect from an industry leading people focussed company. This includes flexible working arrangements and generous benefits that can be tailored to your individual lifestyle. You will also benefit from training opportunities, access to leisure facilities, childcare and retail vouchers and an award-winning pension scheme.
