CONTRACT LENGTH: 6 months initially (this will extend)
FLEXIBILITY: Can compress hours into 4 days
START DATE: ASAP
You will be working on a PC tool that is used for code generation (the tool takes a piece of XML code and generates Embedded C code).
This tool is a highly complex piece of software, with over 250,000 lines of code. Due to customers wanting new features to the product, my client requires a contractor for an initial 6 month period. The contract is expected to last at least 12-18 months.
For this role you should be a confident C++ programmer, who knows how to use all the modern features of the C++ language. C++ 11, 14 or 17 is sufficient In this role you will be using the latest Visual Studio compiler. Experience working on Windows is desirable, but if you are a strong C++ programmer who has only used Linux, this will still be considered.
Experience with Python is desirable (but not essential) as you will be using Python to test.
Any experience working on an existing software product and then updating and adding new features is highly desirable.
In this role you will have opportunity to work on a very exciting and complex piece of software (which will provide exciting technical challenges to excellent Software Engineers.)
