Job Description

Senior C++ Software Consultant - Somerset - Homeworking
This role is home-based with a requirement to spend significant portions of time working with the wider team in South Somerset, and on client sites predominately in the South and South-West of England.
You will ideally have some experience of working into the UK defence sector, national government bodies, on enterprise transformation, feasibility analysis, systems/software/safety engineering, programme delivery and support.
This role goes beyond the development of high-quality code; you will be influencing technical direction and providing high-quality engineering consultancy from a position of hard-earned knowledge.
You will be comfortable working as part of a delivery team working at client sites, as well as delivering small projects as an individual.
Part of this role will involve creating scopes for new projects and assisting the development of technical solutions for bids.
To deliver the role you will have extensive experience in software development, real-time embedded or application development in a commercial / defence environment.
You will be familiar with standards conformance, for example IEC 61508 / IEC 62304 / DO 178C. You will have experience of more than one programming language (e.g. C++, C, C#, Python) and Real-Time Operating Systems and experience in different software engineering approaches, supporting tool-sets, and methodologies.
You will be a great communicator and have experience of technical report writing and have ideally been involved in the bid process and project estimating.
You will need to be a team player, who has an inquisitive nature. Ideally, you have a background in agile software development and an interest in developing your areas of expertise further.
What you will get in return is the opportunity to join an organisation that is growing and would like to assist you in developing your career. This is a fantastic opportunity to be part of a forward thinking, expanding team, who are working on sharing innovative technical solutions for our clients.
If you are interested in applying for this role, you must have:
An existing right to live and work in the UK.
Either hold a current SC clearance or be willing and eligible to undergo a Security Clearance check (SC level) upon starting their employment with the company.
Due to the nature of work undertaken at our client's site, incumbents of these positions are required to meet special nationality rules and therefore these vacancies are only open to sole British Citizens. Applicants who meet these criteria will also be required to undergo security clearance vetting, if not already security cleared to a minimum SC level
