Your Challenge

We are looking for an enthusiastic software developer to join our team to help support and deliver our industry-leading Traffic Management System (TMS).
Principle Responsibilities
The initial focus of this role is the development and improvement of our TMS product. This manages and controls traffic in many cities in the UK and abroad.
The core software is written in Pascal and C. TMS runs on clustered OpenVMS servers in our data centre. Some experience of OpenVMS and clustering is essential, although training and support will be provided.
You should also be able to perform code reviews and provide helpful feedback to other team members. Experience with TCP, UDP, SNMP, HTTP and other standard protocols for data exchange would be helpful. Previous experience with traffic or other real-time systems is desirable but not essential.
The successful candidate will have a degree in Computer Science 2:1 or above, or equivalent qualifications or experience. Experience of working on collaborative software projects (either professionally, academically or as part of an open-source community) is helpful.
We are looking for a candidate with relevant experience and a willingness to learn more, an ability to tackle new problems without giving up, and who can work well within a small team.
As we are a small team, there is potential for you to branch out to work on different areas and, as you continue your career with SWARCO, the breadth of your work will naturally increase. s related to unsolicited CV’s.
