  • Remote working up to 4 days a week.
  • Variety of embedded, application and enterprise systems.

This tech company have been creating software for global businesses across embedded, application and enterprise systems for over 20 years. Following a busy period and several successful new bids, they’re looking to grow their software engineering team further with a new hire to be made in their Trowbridge office. They’re a unique business with a proven track record of supporting giants in the fields of public sector, telecoms, rail, aerospace and more. 

What skills you’ll need

  • Proven experience with C# and ideally another server-side language (Python, Java, C++ etc.). 
  • Understanding of .Net framework. 
  • Significant knowledge of OO design as well as UML/XML. 
  • Programming experience on Windows OS. Any Linux knowledge would be useful.

As a multi-project and tech agnostic business, any awareness of the following would be super useful, but not essential; AWS, Azure, ML, JavaScript, Python, iOS/Android, PHP, Open Source.

What you’ll be doing

Joining the wider Engineering team with multi-project exposure, you’ll support the delivery of high-level projects across their global customer-base, primarily focused on the MS ecosystem but with exposure to things like Python, Java, C++ and more, meaning you’ll need to be comfortable learning new tech and adapting depending on the project. Some projects can last for 2+ years at a time but the typical lifecycle is 3-6 months before you’re re-deployed into a different area, creating a lot of variety and diverse tools/tech to be involved in. There’s typically 2-4 people on a project and the role tends to be quite customer-facing, so you’ll need to offer a consultative approach and ensure you understand and meet the briefs given throughout. As a senior you’ll be involved up to architecture level, plus mentoring juniors and offering technical direction and oversight where required. 

What you’ll get in return for your experience

As well as a generous salary, this business advocate flexibility and work/life balance. Their core hours are 10am – 4pm and it’s expected you’ll come into the office once a week when restrictions lift for team meetings, other than that you can work from home as often as you’d like. They have on-site parking for those who need it and offer 25 days holiday, a nice break over Christmas, annual bonus based on company performance and an auto-enrolment pension scheme. They’re always looking for new ways to improve skill sets across the team so will back you to go on any courses/conferences you think would benefit your personal progression.
