You will be expected to participate in requirements gathering from user groups of such tools and other researchers engaged in the project, as well as designing, implementing and evaluating the tools with user partners of the projects (both internally and externally).

  • Design and implement software systems based on research within ongoing projects ready for deployment to real-world users for validating research outcomes and take-up of research results in practical settings.
  • Maintain any code base or repository, ensuring appropriate editing and version control processes are upheld.
  • Translate research findings into practical software tools for use by other researchers and practitioners, including iterative discussion and evaluation with stakeholders.

You should apply if

  • Knowledge and experience of programming and hands-on experience of developing substantial software systems.
  • Knowledge and experience of secure software development practices.
  • Knowledge and experience of Git.
  • Experience with CI/CD pipelines as well as automated build systems (e.g. Atlassian's Bamboo, Jenkins or equivalents), and writing Dockerfiles.
