Summary

Salary
Competitive
Team
Electronics, The Dyson Institute of Engineering and Technology
Location
Malmesbury - United Kingdom

Description

As part of the Dyson Institute of Engineering and Technology the Technical Software Engineer will be responsible for development of the software knowledge and skills of the undergraduates. Working closely with the Technical Manager, UK Technical Director and staff from the University of Warwick they will ensure that the course is ready for delivery to the undergraduates, and that work placed software rotations reinforce the taught content. 
This is a full time role with the Institute, but in order to remain connected to engineering delivery (Line managers and projects) it is essential that the technical software engineer is able to work on live RDD projects and/or research. It is envisaged that the technical software engineer will spend 1-2 days per week working on live projects organised around Institute management duties, though there will be a period of induction and integration with The Dyson Institute team where this may not be possible. 
 The Technical Software Engineer will work closely with line managers (particularly software line managers) to set learning outcomes, maintain engaging projects, and monitor undergraduate progress. They will also seek and incorporate feedback from the undergraduates where appropriate.

  • Manage all relevant teaching, laboratories and training delivered on site for the undergraduates. 
  • Co-ordinate exams and assessment of undergraduate work. 
  • Manage and maintain the teaching and Laboratory space going forward to ensure it is safe, well organised and run. 
  • Hold development reviews with the undergraduates. 
  • Support the development of the undergraduates into the right technical roles and specialisms as they progress at Dyson.
