What You Will Do
As a C++ software engineer, you will join a team of 10-15 software engineers. Your key role will be to implement high-quality features in our current and future applications.
You will be working with our Application Engineers to define requirements and implement solutions spanning real-time image processing, analysis, computational geometry, and 3D data visualisation.
We develop a cross-platform desktop application that runs on Windows and Linux. The code uses C++ 17, and state of the art image processing, meshing and visualisation libraries. Development is primarily on Windows using Visual Studio as an IDE and Git for revision control. We use CMake for building and Catch2 for unit testing.
