The Role

Working as part of a small team you will be undertaking projects to develop new capabilities in our systems. You will receive direction and guidance but will be expected to take ownership of your projects and the day-to-day organisation of your own activities, coordinating with others where required.

You will typically be required to lead your projects through a lifecycle of requirements capture, design, development, integration, and test, possibly with elements of agile prototyping and experimentation.

The role involves not just coding but also the design and definition of the system element that you are developing and its interfaces to the wider system. Often this is as part of a signal processing chain that converts raw sensor output to an actionable system output. Our signal processing is based on a combination of classical and machine-learning approaches.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a small team at the start of a new phase of product development and to develop your skills and level of responsibility rapidly.
