Two Edinburgh Software Engineers

Two full-time Software Engineers are wanted to work in Smalltalk (VisualWorks), C++, Matlab and .NET.  They will accept junior or graduate applicants with strong OO knowledge.  They want object oriented development skills and ideally experience working with Matlab.  Computer hardware knowledge and/or basic understanding of networking principles would be beneficial, and/or degree in Computer Science or relevant subject, likewise communication skills and team working abilities.  The role includes design, coding, debugging, test and deployment, as well as working with customers directly and travelling to customer sites to update or deploy offline solutions.

The hiring firm invite you to submit your CV and ‘have a chat’ about how well this matches your skills.

Smalltalk Engineer, Edinburgh, UK

The work is on a VisualWorks system used by a semiconductor/MEMS company.  The worksite is the Scottish Microelectronics Centre in Edinburgh, with occasional visits to nearby Livingstone and 10-20% of a typical year visiting customer sites in Europe, Asia and North America.  The engineer will work with the existing small team to develop and maintain the system, including programming hardware interfaces. They should have OO experience, and some Computer hardware and computer networking knowledge.  LabVIEW programming experience, Smalltalk Programming experience and .Net experience are desired but not essential.

Developer, UK

This offer may be related to the one below.  LAM Research are looking for someone to work in the UK, and could be (or could be working for) the parent semiconductor company, to whose Smalltalk software the C# implementation is to be ported.

Details here.

Smalltalk Developer, Bristol, UK

A company that specialise in high precision measurement equipment needs to transfer the company’s existing product software functionality to their parent company’s software which is written in Smalltalk.  The candidate should be fluent in C# and with some exposure to Smalltalk, and be willing to work on a permanent basis from their Bristol-based offices.

Quality Assurance Analyst, Glasgow, UK

The Kapital project (VisualWorks and GemStone) seeks a test analyst to perform test execution and comparison, defect management, problem solving, debugging, coding, delivery of test results, and active involvement in team discussions and the agile process.  They want experience of the full software test lifecycle, and of agile processes.  Knowledge of Smalltalk, Unix, OO testing and/or the financial domain is a plus.

Software Engineer, Edinburgh, UK

The company serves the semiconductor and MEMS industry;  its customers are in North America, Europe and Asia.  Travel to customer sites will be 10-20% of working time in a year.

A Software Engineer/Senior Software Engineer is wanted to develop and improve software on their current hardware platforms.  Programming is in VisualWorks, plus programming hardware interfacing modules and hardware / software integration.

They want experience in OO and in computer hardware (at least a little networking experience is also desired).  Prior knowledge of LabVIEW, Smalltalk and/or .Net is welcome but not essential.  The candidate will work in a small team but will also interact with other parts of the company and with customers and suppliers, so good communication skills are desirable.

Smalltalk developer, Glasgow, U.K.

(The add for this says to apply before 2nd May,)

JPMorgan’s Kapital system runs on VisualWorks and Gemstone.  They want a developer to work in the Glasgow-based infrastructure team.  Experience with OO and databases is essential.  Preferably, of course, they would like a candidate with experience in Smalltalk and GemStone;  failing that, the candidate should be eager to increase their knowledge of complex distribution architectures and object databases.

Infrastructure Developer, Glasgow, UK

This position, like my previous post, is at Kapital’s Glasgow site, this time working on maintaining and improving the engine infrastructure rather than on specific tasks for the end users. Kapital’s meta-data framework is implemented in VisualWorks and Gemstone. This role may also have to deal with the Unix architecture beneath, and occasionally with Java and Python. The job-ads admirably frank sentence “The candidate must be able to work independently, with minimal managerial oversight, in an environment where creativity and innovation is not facilitated and yet is expected.” could be written of many another site.  At least this one facilitates creativity by letting you use Smalltalk. 🙂

Test Engineer/Developer, Glasgow, UK

The Kapital team in Glasgow are recruiting. Kapital prices complex financial products for JPMorganChase. It is written in VisualWorks and Gemstone, and runs on Unix servers. They would welcome knowledge of Smalltalk and Unix, some banking or finance experience, and a honours degree in a STEM subject, but the essentials are OO coding and debugging experience, willingness to learn, adaptability and sufficient people skills.

Application Developer, Glasgow, U.K.

The job listing I posted on November 25th has expired but another listing of what looks like the same role has appeared:  a Smalltalk Developer is wanted by the Kapital project’s Glasgow team.  Kapital is a pricing engine written in VisualWorks and GemStone.  It has some 90 developers world-wide, organised in teams at 4 or 5 locations.

Although Smalltalk experience is preferred, a developer who has gained Object-Oriented experience in Python, C#, Java or similar will be eligible.  The role is development, but includes participation in a production support rota.

Application Developer, Glasgow, U.K.

The Kapital project seeks a developer to extend existing utilities and build new ones, and to support users (role includes being on a production support rota).  Kapital is a pricing engine, implemented in VisualWorks and GemStone.

They want candidates who are experienced in OO (in Smalltalk ideally, but they will accept experience in Java, C++, Python, etc.), have good communication skills and are self-motivated.

Application Developer, Glasgow, UK

The Kapital project (VisualWorks and GemStone) is looking for another Smalltalker in Glasgow;  details here.  A team on-site in Glasgow works with the teams in London, New York and Japan to maintain and extend the large, complex pricing engine and its infrastructure.  The candidate will also interact with the internal customers of development tasks, and occasionally participate in the production support rota.
