An ever-evolving heritage. A truly exciting future. Two of the world's most iconic brands. A company revered across the globe. Continually pushing the boundaries of innovation and redefining the benchmark for excellence, they set the standards others want to follow. They want to keep it that way too. Which is where you join the journey.


Every moment of every day, IT keeps my client moving in the right direction. Without it, their business simply cannot evolve. So the projects you work on will have a real impact. Your ideas and solutions will not just help manage operations - they will transform the business and, ultimately, affect how every one of their functions works.

In your new role as a Linux Development Engineer you'll be joining a rapidly developing team, which is tasked with ensuring that touch screens are a frictionless extension of their luxury brand. Your key responsibility will be to ensure that their stack's foundation, which they use to customise systems at all levels, remains up-to-date, secure, robust and flexible. To ensure this, you'll proactively validate and upstream upcoming releases to ensure compatibility.

You'll code, document, design and release according to latest industry proven software processes and create software that is modular, well documented and contains fully integrated diagnostics to minimise resolution time for reported defects. You'll also ensure the base station software meets all production quality requirements through validation testing of functionality and performance.


You'll have detailed knowledge of Linux kernel and distributions, and demonstration proven experience of working within the Open Source community. You'll be used to integrating large-scale embedded software systems, using a number of software version control system and related tools, such as Python, Perl, or Bash to automate software build activities. You'll also need a degree in software engineering or a similar discipline.

Ideally you'll be proficient in a number of implementation languages, both procedural and object-oriented, and any knowledge of automotive processes and technologies for component delivery is highly advantageous. It will also be beneficial if you can communicate complex technical issues to a variety of technical and non-technical stakeholders.


Bring all this to the home of premium innovation, and you'll find the opportunities to further your career with a world-class team, a competitive pension plan and performance related bonus scheme. All this and more makes my client the perfect place to continue your development.
