A capable Software Developer with a strong engineering and/or physics background is required to join our team servicing one of our MoD customers embedded within their facilities to contribute to the design and development of software products and projects. Team working is key and you will become a trusted member of a team of eight computational model engineers who maintain and develop a set of models that underpin crucial defence analysis and planning. A combination of Windows and UNIX environments are used, with software primarily written in C#, C++ and Fortran.
Technical activities will include capture and analysis of requirements or other change requests, design, development, testing and analysing of software, and maintaining documentation. The tools we develop are used by us as well as our MoD customer for studies that help us understand the technical aspects of our work and clarify future requirements. These tools are also included in an integrated software suite that enables our MoD customer to carry out operational planning activities. A key aspect is supporting our end-users as technical experts and supporting the MoD in meetings both in UK and occasionally US. The successful candidate will need to develop a broad technical understanding of the models the team maintains, as well as detailed understanding of the specific models they are assigned to take charge of.
We are looking for a candidate with a sound grasp of the key principles and techniques of physics and maths-based computer modelling, and a desire to put those skills to work solving technical challenges as part of our team of engineers.
