About this job

Excellent opportunity for an accomplished and experienced Software Engineer looking for a new challenge, involving the re-design of a software system and ultimately the management of a team of scientific software engineers!

Our client, an expanding biopharmaceutical instrumentation manufacturer, is looking for a motivated and experienced senior software engineer to join a small and friendly team building the next generation of data analysis and instrument control software.

As a senior member of the team, you will both support the existing software and provide expertise for the re-design of the company’s hardware/software system. The current system is written in Java/Java Swing with control functions provided via C Linux drivers and the core code will be moved to a custom embedded system environment; expertise in this area is therefore a must. Using your excellent communication skills, you will also be required to liaise with hardware designers during the development process.

Other duties will involve debugging the existing software, adding extensions to the toolset as well as other requirements from customers, proof of concept coding and interpreting and designing code from users’ requirements.

To be considered for this exciting position, you must be a coding expert with a track record of writing code for an embedded environment in C/C++ and Java/Java Swing. The ideal candidate will have a strong knowledge of electronics systems, experience of NetBeans (or an associated IDE) and Object Orientated Design. Knowledge of chemistry/physics and previous team lead experience would be desirable although not essential.

This is a full-time permanent position based in South West London.

Key words: Software, Senior Software Engineer, Principal Software Engineer, embedded systems, C, C++, management, team lead, software/hardware, analytical instrumentation, Oject Orientated Design, OOD, Java, Java Swing, Linux, NetBeans, C#, C, C++, Linux Device Driver, C Linux Driver, Developer, Engineer, Maintenance, Product Development, London, Surrey, Woking, South East, South West London, Guildford, VRS6303FP
