Lead Software Engineer Overview
This is a great opportunity for an experienced lead software engineering / computer scientist to join a growing medical technology company based in Buckinghamshire. The business have a total of around 200 employees within the group, however this role is working directly with the novel R&D projects business, which is much smaller, with around 15 employees. This will give the safety of a larger group, but with the day to day feel of a smaller, progressive, and technically challenging business.
The lead software engineer will be working on highly complex projects, specifically a novel surgical robotics system. You will need to have a strong educational background, ideally a 1st class masters degree or PhD (in computer science, image processing, robotics or machine learning) from a top UK red-brick university.
The initial project will involve a heavy emphasis on developing image processing and machine learning algorithms. The lead software engineer / computer scientist will be hired at a senior level within the engineering team, therefore you will also be involved in leading some aspects of the computer science team, which will also involve mentoring and coaching more junior members of the department. You will have to collaborate closely with both electronics and mechanical engineers, so having an appreciation of all engineering areas will put you in good stead. Strong communication skills are a must.
