An opportunity to develop and maintain high quality embedded unit and integration test code alongside contributing to overall software design and architecture - come join our growing team in Cambridge!
We naturally expect you to be enthusiastic, curious, energetic and proactive – and interested in our vision. As well as being a great team player, we’re also looking for you to have:
- The capability to coupling rigorous attention to detail with creative approach to problem solving
- Strong understanding of software engineering fundamentals, applied to real time systems including analytical, theoretical, experimental and creative capabilities
- The ability to produce clear and concise design documentation
- Familiarity with multi-disciplinary product design process
- Fluent in ANSI C (preferably with experience in C99) & C++, particularly when applied to embedded systems
- Experience coding to recognised standards (eg MISRA)
- Use of python as means of scripting & parsing integration
- Experience coding tests to be run from a continuous integration server such as Teamcity – experience maintaining the server itself would be an advantage
Obviously, we’re asking for a lot in the above. In return we offer a competitive salary and a great benefits package (including contributory pension scheme, life assurance, private medical insurance, childcare vouchers, cycle-to-work scheme and our now famous monthly company BBQs). On top of that, you’ll be joining a company with a fabulous culture of ambition, creativity and teamwork, and where fun is just as valued as our commitment to make surgery better for millions of people.
Why join us?
Cambridge Medical Robotics is developing a next-generation robotic system for universal keyhole surgery. The Versius system comprises a surgeon console, modular light-weight robotic arms and a range of wristed 5 mm instruments. The system uses state-of-the-art 3D high-definition imagery, significantly enhanced flexibility, and incorporates haptic feedback to provide surgeons with life-like sensitivity. In short, we’re creating something truly amazing designed to improve the lives of people around the globe; it’s a vision that excites us and hopefully will excite you.
Versius overcomes obstacles to widespread adoption of robotic minimal access surgery, namely robot size, instrument size, versatility, port placement, cost and ease of use, allowing the system to be highly utilised and ultimately cost-comparable to manual laparoscopic surgery.
The Company was formed in 2014 and has its headquarters in Cambridge, United Kingdom. We’re privately owned and enjoy strong financial backing.
