QLM Technology are a UK-based technology start-up founded in 2017 who have developed a security camera device that uses lidar technology to measure greenhouse gas emissions. They are currently scaling production of their devices and looking to grow their internal software team to support them.
This role is for a Principal Software Engineer who will report to the Head of Software and work alongside a small team including Senior Software Engineers and a QA Lead. The Principal Software Engineer will collaborate closely with the software team, in-house R&D team, and external contractors. You can choose to work remotely or on a hybrid basis, spending 3-4 days per month at one of QLM's locations.
The Principal Software Engineer will focus on C++ software development and firmware for the lidar camera. This will involve working with existing code developed by external contractors, debugging issues and implementing fixes as the cameras are manufactured and deployed. Additionally, as QLM’s product matures you will have an opportunity to engineer and implement new software features and enhancements.
Relevant Experience and Skills
