C++ Developer – Somerset – Permanent

Nicholas Howard Limited are delighted to be recruiting for a new and exciting role as a C++ Developer.

We are looking for a skilled and self-motivated individual to join our Client’s business. There are 2 people in the project team currently, who regularly meet at least once a week either in the Bridgewater or Wells area – candidates will need to be able and willing to attend regular weekly meetings in these locations.

After a successful year winning contracts in a number of areas including master data management, energy management and bovine (dairy cow) disease analysis, our Client is looking for a skilled C++ Developer to join the business on a permanent basis to support new project work. The post holder will mostly be working on the disease management project, though there are lots of additional developments that the post holder may contribute to.

The successful candidate will have a primary focus on C++. A degree in Computer Science, Mathematics or Physics would be an ideal foundation, and any experience or exposure to disease analysis work would be highly advantageous (but not essential). Candidates who programmed as a hobby from a young age would be preferred.

End-users of the solution will typically be vets and farmers, the C++ development work will be cross-platform enabling calculations to run on tablets and mobile devices (in the field) rather than a classic client-server setup. Our Client uses the cross-platform library Qt, which enables GUI to be built for both mobile and desktop/laptops; any experience of Qt would be highly desirable.

Required Languages:

  • C++
  • SQL

Desirable Technologies:

  • Qt
  • Sqlite
  • Javascript
  • Java

Preferred background(s)/experience:

  • Computer Science
  • Mathematics or Physics
  • Disease Analysis (desirable)
