Kirintec are seeking a flexible, enthusiastic and experienced Senior Software Engineer to join the R&D team at their premises in Ross-On-Wye.
The ideal candidate will have experience in a wide range of software technologies, with particular emphasis on Object-Oriented Analysis and Design using UML and C++ (preferably C++11 onwards) for both embedded and desktop environments.
The role will involve supporting and enhancing our existing products, as well as contributing to the design and development of new products. It is therefore essential that your experience includes developing software to drive hardware devices, and development of desktop-based user interfaces, preferably using the Qt framework.
Practical experience in Agile Software Development would be advantageous, as would experience with embedded/real-time Linux. Use of the Atlassian tools (Confluence / Jira / Bitbucket), Python, Multi-Threaded software, Git and other software quality assurance tools and methods (e.g. Test Driven-Development, Static Analysis, Continuous Integration) would also help.
As part of a small team, your role will involve a wide range of activities, through all aspects of the software lifecycle. Reporting to the R&D Director, you will work closely with our Principal Software Engineer, as well as Hardware and RF engineers, to both maintain existing products, and to specify and develop new products. An understanding of the RF environment and experience in using appropriate tools, such as logic analysers, oscilloscopes and spectrum analysers would be valuable. You will be encouraged to contribute your ideas on process and quality improvement and will use the breadth of knowledge you’ve developed to help identify appropriate technologies to use in new products.
Kirintec is an exciting and ambitious R&D-led company with market leading technology and expertise. Kirintec offers a fast-paced dynamic environment fostering innovation at all levels with rewards to match.
