Experienced C++ Developer - Software Consultant

Functional areas
Become part of the team

Strong C++ developer needed to work across broad range of industry sectors and problem spaces!


Technology consulting is all about taking on the problems our clients don't have the capability or expertise to handle themselves, so you can expect to be working on some of the toughest problems out there. 

We are developing the software powering ground breaking new products in areas such as

  • Next generation wound care
  • Medical diagnostic devices
  • 5G and the Internet of Things
  • State of the art new manufacturing lines
  • Transportation systems
  • Network security

Our collaborative cross disciplinary teams of software, electronics, mechanical engineers and scientists are working together to build innovative solutions to some of the most interesting challenges. We use agile tools such as Test Driven Development, continuous integration systems & pair programming to deliver high quality software for our clients and we are constantly homing our software development and consulting people skills.
