We’re looking for a Software Engineer to work on our macOS Agile Development Team.
You will play an integral role in creating stable and scalable software security products that protect global companies from the growing cyber threat.
If you're passionate about continual learning and have a creative mind that thrives on the challenge of solving valuable problems then this role could be a great match for you!
Essential Duties and Responsibilities
- Contribute to development effort as a hands-on developer within your team.
- Ensure code reviews and unit testing are completed, and that these are consistently following departmental guidelines. Where no formal guidelines exist, work with peers to formulate and enforce such guidelines.
- Timely and accurate reporting of assigned work status as required, reporting risks and issues as they arise.
- Triage assigned software defects. Ensure that work on defect resolution does not impact on agreed product deliverables, reporting to Product Owner/Scrum Master where resolution will require renegotiation of deliverable dates for other tasks.
- Keep abreast of technology trends and how they apply to your area. Put forward suggestions for improvement to development processes or tools where applicable.
- Achieve agreed productivity targets in order to ensure tasks are delivered to schedule, reporting as early as possible to Product Owner/Scrum Master where deliverables cannot be met.
- Develop product expertise in at least one product area, such that you can act as the go to expert from a development perspective for this area of the product.
- Track record of developing in MacOS (ideally) or Linux with high-quality code in C++11 or higher
- Experience with QT would be beneficial
- Experience with Objective C would be beneficial
- Experience working in a cross-functional team to ship major features and releases
- Able to communicate, collaborate, and work effectively in a distributed tea
- Curious, inquisitive and passionate
- Familiarity with Agile methodologies
- Familiarity with software build tools, issue tracking and Git
- Experience writing multi-threaded code
- Strong debugging and troubleshooting skills
- Unit testing
- Peer reviews
- Professional qualifications appropriate to software engineering roles.
- Good communication skills enabling positive collaboration with functions outside development.
- Good understanding of principles, theories, practices, and techniques for delivering software development projects.
Desirable Skills but not Required
- Experience coding in Swift – iOS and macOS programming language
- MacOS kernel-level development for security systems.
- Linux experience could be also suitable for this role, instead of macOS if very strong in all other areas and happy to adapt quickly.
What about the Perks?
- True flexibility with managers who trust you to work in the way most productive to you
- Regular hackathons/lunch & learns/social events
- Always working with the most modern technologies (as a cyber security company we invest heavily in this area, we can’t fall behind!)
- Wellbeing events such as yoga/meditation/home workouts
- 25 days’ holiday which increases up to 30 days with length of service
- Competitive pension scheme
- Vitality Private Healthcare for you and family – One of the best products on the market offering 24/7 private GP, Mental Health support, Physiotherapy and more (including a heavily discounted Apple Watch)
- Life Insurance that covers 4x your salary.
