Job description

The Opportunity

As a Software Project Lead, you'll be leading the on-time, on-cost, and on-quality delivery of software for one of our key products. The product is in a maintenance phase and so the deliveries are incremental, and focused around product improvements (robustness and feature upgrades).

You'll be technically leading a small team of engineers, leading their day-to-day activities and acting in a part design authority, part project manager role. You'll collaborate with multiple customers across multiple subject areas including financial and budget control, system design, electronics design, safety, security and quality.

The software is developed in Ada and Rapsody and so you'll be supporting the architecting, design, implementation, and testing of subsystem software within the team.

Experience needed

  • Engineering degree qualification or equivalent experience
  • Do you have proven ability to technically manage a team of software developers?
  • Project management skills to ensure good planning, delivery and cost control of software.
  • The ability to communicate optimally at all levels in the company across a range of mediums, including reporting of progress, blockers and achievements.
  • A good understanding of software and the software development lifecycle, including configuration management tools and techniques, to be able to provide effective oversight.
  • The ability to draw out and understand requirements and available design solutions so that you can produce accurate and cost effective estimates of work to be undertaken.
  • Understanding of UML and C, C++ and/or Ada Languages.

Desired Experience

  • Experience in the Defence / Aerospace or safety regulated environment would be advantageous.
