The successful candidates will be very capable Embedded Software developers who will help them develop low level and application software for the next generation of advanced missile systems

Role Description
-The role is based at our Stevenage development facility.

You will be developing the low level and application software for a range of missile related systems and product lines, initially focusing on Datalinks and Telemetry Subsystems.
-The Datalink products are bespoke, complex radio systems that provide the communication link between the missile in flight and the launch platform, which could be Ground, Sea or Air.
-The Telemetry units are a different type of bespoke radio system which allows the remote capture of performance data from the missile during test firings.
-This is a hands-on, technical role you will be designing and developing low level and application software and integrating it on bespoke hardware.

You may be involved in the hardware bring-up phase, and it would be advantageous to know your way around logic analysers, oscilloscopes, spectrum analysers and JTAG / trace modules.

Qualifications / Experience
-You will ideally have a good degree in Computer Science, Software Engineering or Electronics combined with significant experience in the development of low-level and application software for novel hardware.

You will have some experience in bringing up new hardware implementations and will be comfortable working with Electronics engineers in a lab environment to debug new designs.

It is likely that your experience was gained in defence, automotive, aerospace, telecoms or consumer electronics.
-You will favour a collaborative open approach to development and have the ability to inspire others whilst also maintaining momentum throughout development.

The software you develop will be used across multiple products at several sites, so strong communication skills and the ability to motivate others is essential.
-You will have significant previous experience with Ada and Embedded C and/or C++.

You will have a good understanding of ARM and PowerPC platforms together with other digital hardware.
-You will have demonstrable experience developing software for (and getting it to work on) new hardware, where the hardware is developing alongside the software.
-You will have some experience in model-based development, using UML and tools such as IBM Rhapsody.
-Background in software safety with knowledge of standards such as DO-178B/C, DefStan 00-55 or IEC-61508 and restricted coding standards such as MISRA / SPARK will be an advantage.
