    Job Title: Software Engineers
    Salary: £35,000 - £40,000
    Location: Birmingham
    Tech: C#, WPF, AI, MATLAB, LabVIEW, UWP, mobile, Azure, XAML, SQL, Entity, ASP.NET; JavaScript, embedded
    Sector: Research and Development – R&D - Hardware/Software

    I’ve heard the phrase “research and development” floating around a lot in the software industry this last year, but few companies actually hold to this or have loose definitions revolving around: short development lifecycles, “greenfield projects” or simply being the first team to work on a particular area of a business. Where did the true R&D roles go? Well…

    With this position, as part of a global leading research group, you’ll be joining a company responsible for taking patented ideas and building these into a physical product. They have a supporting hardware team that deals with embedded development and hardware design, and you’ll be working alongside these to prototype and build new products for their business area.

    They have a huge market and are planning on doubling in size (currently ~20 Engineers, split between hardware and software teams) in the next 4 months, so there is plenty of opportunity to progress as the team expands.

    Core tech:

    With this being a role that’s more traditional in R&D, you’ll be getting involved in a mixture of the following, but you can expect this to change and evolve as the product grows:
    • Prototyping
    • Developing the backend and UI of the product to help the worker conduct tests intuitively
    • Working with technologies such as: Full-stack C# (Desktop/Web), native mobile, Xamarin, AI, MATLAB; LabVIEW
    • Data Science/Analysis
    • Implementing web services and Cloud.

    Bonus for:

    • Algorithm work
    • Computer Vision/OpenCV

    I can discuss the product and projects in more detail on the phone, so please hit apply and/or email jacky.price@ecomrecruitment.com and we can set this up.
