An engineering specialist company working on the latest technology in military and weapons control applications are seeking an Embedded Software Engineer with a real time embedded software expertise and great C and C++ development skills to join their expanding team. You’ll be developing in C and C++ within a team of like-minded engineers, in a hands on role, working together to develop new military software that will be used by armed forces in the field.

As an Embedded Software Engineer, you will be involved in all parts of software development allowing you to use your industry experience in best practice software techniques to join an agile environment. Primarily programming in C++ (with semi-regular C development), the Embedded Software Engineer will get to work on a number of bespoke RTOS applications for mission critical projects as the company has a diverse and exciting range of defence electronics, so your work will always be varied and challenging. As the projects you will be working on are designed for the military you will need to be security cleared for this role, but this shouldn’t be a problem if you are a British citizen.

In addition to the exciting and varied nature of the C and C++ projects you’ll be working on, the company also pay very competitive salaries and have a diverse and flexible benefits package, allowing you to customise your package to what you need. Located in Buckinghamshire, this role is easily accessible, with good train links to London and easy road access to the M40 and M25 motorways. Finally this role will give you, as an Embedded Software Engineer, the opportunity to gain experience at a very reputable company, whilst also offering the chance to step up into projects that would have a genuine use in the real world, using cutting edge tech to maintain the safety of military operations.

Key requirements:

- Strong C and C++ real-time software development skills

- Embedded software development using QNX or Linux/UNIX

- Some understanding of UML object oriented technique

- The eligibility for Security Clearance

Desirable Skills:

- Common communication protocols (RS232/422, TCP/IP, UDP etc.)

- Scripting languages e.g. Python

- Visual Basic

- Strong communication and leadership skills

Salary information:

A very generous salary and flexible benefits package – including a Bonus, Dental and Private Medical cover, and a share plan that can be tailored to suit your needs!
