An excellent opportunity has arisen to join our Engineering department as a hands-on Software Team Leader, leading a team of highly skilled software and hardware engineers, delivering commercial projects and R&D work across a variety of products and technologies.

As an experienced Software Team Leader, whilst being highly technical and hands-on, you will lead development projects across predominantly PIC, Digi, Rabbit and WinCE based technologies.

Managing the successful delivery of projects will require you to plan, coordinate and lead activities across the full delivery lifecycle. This will include working closely with the department's Managers, as well as liaising with key project stakeholders as required.

This role offers challenges across a wide variety of projects and responsibilities.

Experience and knowledge required in the following areas:
• Analogue and Digital Circuit Design (SMPS, micro, etc.)
• Schematic Capture (Preferably Altium)
• Driver interfacing to SPI, I2C, RS485, CAN and Ethernet.

Experience in the following would be advantageous:
• Embedded C (preferably Microchip PIC18/32)
• Development of network communications such as TCP/IP, UDP and SNMP
• FPGA / CPLD (Verilog/VHDL)
• DSP
• JavaScript
• Windows C#, Linux

You will be joining a team of diverse skills and experience and the job requires a motivated individual who is experienced in taking responsibility and can independently deliver results on both departmental and business projects. We will consider candidates who are either Embedded Software or Electronics focused.
