MBDA Missile Systems – Together. For the future of defence.
Exciting opportunity for a Software Engineer, in our Hardware-in-the-Loop Team
Salary: up to 50k (DOE)
Hybrid working pattern: 80% on site, working with world class equipment
We are looking for ambitious engineers with a growth mind-set to join our team. If you're the right person for us, you will seek a supportive environment, surrounded by passionate experts while being a part of collaborative and driven team.
The Hardware-in-the-Loop (HWIL) team conduct the most complete test of missiles other than a firing and are MBDA's Missile test track. We design complex, real-time simulations that surround real missile hardware to allow us to 'fire missiles indoors'.
As a HWIL Software engineer you will be responsible for developing and maintaining the underlying real-time software tools that allow us to run simulations of real missile hardware as well as control our innovative equipment. You will also support the deployment of these tools in designing the simulations and running experiments.
You will be able to adapt to new engineering situations and be comfortable in abstracting detail in order to understand the simulation and missile's behaviour.
What can you bring to the role?
Broad engineering experience with deeper experience in some of the following skill areas:
- Software design
- Software design for real-time applications
- Familiarity with Linux operating system
- Familiarity with C/C++
- Use of microcontrollers (e.g. Raspberry Pi)
- Interface debugging and system integration
Familiarity with Object Orientated approaches would be beneficial
What to expect:
We offer opportunities for career progression, paid overtime (subject to level), bonus scheme, comprehensive pension package, annual salary review, collaborative working environment and excellent on-site facilities.
We recognise that everyone is unique, and we encourage you to speak to us should you require any advice, support or adjustments throughout our recruitment process. We also welcome applicants who are looking for flexible working arrangements.
