Exciting Opportunity for a Progressive Software Engineer

The Company

BioGene Limited is an ISO9002 registered Biotechnology Company based in Cambridgeshire whose stated mission is ‘innovative excellence’. With over twenty one years’ experience in the field of rapid molecular based technologies for the detection of genetic material and a growing pipeline of IP protected novel instruments and processes the Company is ideally situated for rapid growth on a global scale.

We are now looking to recruit a ‘Software Engineer’ for our multi-disciplinary team as we bring to market and seek to manufacture, distribute and support a novel family of products.

If you are a highly motivated and ambitious professional seeking a challenging new role, this is the opportunity to self-develop and succeed on a personal and professional level within a rapidly growing company.

Offering progression commensurate to contribution and development prospects, we offer a fast-paced environment, ideal for enhancing your technical and management skills. Ability to work in R&D, production and service roles: coordinating and working with the internal engineering team to sync with the external resources is a key requirement.

The Role:

You will be responsible for helping to create a new generation of innovative products as well as help improve the current range of products as both customers and changes in technologies demand. You will design, prototype and help deploy leading edge software in tandem with the requisite hardware. This from inception, in the R&D role through to manufacture and service. As the team expands, good inter-personal and management skills (both people and parallel Projects) will be required. You will be required to produce and follow project and product documentation and be able to adopt a hands-on approach as and when the project requires. The facility will seek to register to ISO13485 during 2016.

Strong leadership skills together with an enquiring mind that is constantly looking at new technical options as Projects develop are key personal assets….a ‘can do’ attitude is vital as is the desire to complete Projects on time and on budget-reflecting the importance of the commercial role that the function also entails.

You will take responsibility for the full product lifecycle: from early concepts and prototypes, to full production and upgrades. To this end, you will work closely with colleagues from sales and manufacturing as well as with suppliers to ensure technical and commercial success.

Interested? To be considered for the role, you ideally would have:

  • Java (Eclipse) required
  • Programming and Software Engineering: C, C +, Embedded C.,Python would be good to have.
  • A working knowledge of VHDL would be useful.
  • You must be an enthusiastic and committed self-starter who can set goals and achieve them within the remit of the Business Plan.

Job Functions

  • Liaising with line manager and helping to devise technical direction to sub-contractors and suppliers to ensure that projects are completed on schedule, to specification and within agreed budgets. Instigating, developing and managing the agreed Project Plan both internally and externally.
  • Providing technical support in software/firmware and electronics from idea stage through to pre-production, testing and ‘productionisation’
  • Routine customer service support as and when required. To include office and field based activities. Aim is to provide direct and link engineering (to third party engineering support) for Company products.
  • Any office support as and when required e.g. software/hardware support.
  • Assembly/Production implementation and Technical Management of the growing range of products, this will include production and inventory planning and scheduling to demand.
