Software Engineer

We’re looking for an innovative, motivated Software Engineer to join the team responsible for our streaming platform. This is a full time role based in our office on the outskirts of Glasgow (albeit we're currently working from home).

If you joined our team, you would be working with a group of engineers who develop and maintain all the code used on our DS (Digital Streamer) range. This ranges from kernel configuration and device drivers to network protocols (HTTP, UPnP, many others), to audio pipeline, to on-board UI.

While we write and maintain much of our own code, we know we can't do it all. We also integrate a number of third party libraries, from kernel to security and codecs. As well as consuming open source libraries, we open much of our code.

The vast majority of work is in C++, with C used to interface with third party libraries and hardware. This role will initially be focused on linux kernel but there is scope to evolve the role to suit the right candidate.

Skills and Requirements:

  • Linux Kernel driver development
  • Developing for real-time, embedded software applications
  • Multi-threading and concurrency
  • Cross-platform development experience
  • U-boot


Desirable

  • Experience in working with audio streaming
  • Interest in music
  • C++ experience including C++11 (and later) and STL
  • OO design and software architecture skills
  • Experience integrating third party libraries (e.g. libressl, Bonjour/zeroconf, codecs)
  • Working knowledge of python
  • Build systems and automated testing
  • Agile development methodologies
