Job Description

Think Engineer is recruiting for a design engineer focussing on web software and cloud systems. The best candidate will be an engineering and technology wizard who is able to quickly learn and adapt to new technologies and methods. Some industry experience is preferred.

The ideal candidate will enjoy working with a wide breadth of technologies across a number of application domains, rather than focusing on just one or two key specialisms. The candidate should be able to work both alone and as part of a small team.

The job role will primarily involve writing both back-end and front-end software for Internet of Things based infrastructures and deploying this software to cloud platforms such as GCP. Other tasks may involve developing algorithms, writing desktop/ mobile applications, and possibly even some embedded programming.

A list of desirable skills is given below; candidates do not necessarily need experience in all areas listed below but should at least have knowledge with a subset of these technologies and the desire to learn more.

Highly desired skills and knowledge include:

  • Python
  • Javascript
  • HTML
  • PHP
  • SQL
  • Android Development
  • Docker
  • Cloud Hosting Platforms (GCP, AWS, DigitalOcean etc.)
  • Non-Relational Databases (e.g. MongoDB)
  • Machine Learning
  • Computer Vision

Other advantageous skills include:

  • C/C++
  • Arduino
  • ARM Microcontrollers
  • Git Version Control
  • Digital and Analog Electronics
  • PCB Design Tools (e.g. Eagle)

The Company – What do we do?

Think Engineer is a small technology consultancy and prototype development start-up (TRL 3 to 7).

We develop prototypes and proofs-of-concept for individuals, SMEs and larger companies. Most of the systems we develop are related to connected devices and the ‘Internet of Things’, but we have also produced virtual reality demonstrators, computer vision software, machine learning for industrial sensors and even one-off technological ‘experiences’.

Our customers come from an almost endless variety of industries, meaning that we must rapidly adapt to new concepts and apply our knowledge to many different challenges.
Think Engineer is also looking to expand into its own range of products in the near future, meaning we will be doing lots of in-house development.

Typical projects we do involve some combination of:

  • Embedded software programming
    • Arduino
    • ARM
    • Embedded C/C++
  • General purpose programming
    • C/C++/C#
    • Python
    • MATLAB/ Octave
    • Others
  • Machine Learning
  • Internet of Things
  • Big Data
  • System Design and Systems Engineering
  • Web Development
    • HTML
    • PHP
    • JavaScript
  • Databases
    • MySQL
    • Non-Relational Database Systems
  • Networking
  • Computer Vision
  • Electronics
    • Printed Circuit Board Design
    • Microcontroller boards
    • Sensors
  • Mechanical CAD / 3D printing

The Job Environment – What’s it like to work here?

We are a small team with a relaxed work environment. All of us require copious quantities of caffeine to stay alive and so we keep plenty of coffee, tea, energy drinks and beer in stock. Obviously, the beer doesn’t have caffeine but sometimes you just need a drink.

We also have a tradition of Fry-Up Fridays – turn up to work on time on Friday and we’ll buy you breakfast.
We like to be always getting better at what we do and recognise that the best new ideas often come from the least experienced team members, so if you have an idea on how to do things better we will listen.

We also like to nurture our team’s professional development, so we will pay for your membership to a professional body such as the IET, and there may sometimes be opportunities for training courses or going on trips to expositions or trade shows.
