We currently use the following technologies (so demonstrable experience of working with these is a bonus):

  • Windows 10, macOS and a variety of Linux distributions
  • AWS, Bitbucket, Jira, Google Workspace (formerly G Suite), Papyrs, Office 365
  • C++, CUDA C, and C# languages for our products and python for modelling, analysis and continuous integration

  • A personal interest in AR/VR is also a plus!

What do we offer?

  • Competitive salary
  • Employee share options scheme (the earlier you join, the bigger your upside)
  • Progressive, friendly working environment operating a hybrid working model (with flexible core hours)
  • Good benefits package including generous maternity/paternity pay, cycle to work, PMI with Vitalit
