Our Graduate Software Engineers work with a variety of software: application, embedded, macro, scripting. In the majority of our hardware products, in-house software is an essential component, including application software. Software engineers also help to develop test rigs for our manufacturing facilities and business applications for a variety of other departments.
Software Engineers at Renishaw are likely to experience a variety of software development methodologies and approaches, including agile.
Programming languages are generally C, C++, C#, VB and others depending upon the desired solution and platform that the software is to run on. Platforms range from Windows and Linux to Real-Time embedded operating systems for large and small scale microprocessor and microcontrollers.
Various development processes and lifecycles are used depending on the nature of the problem being solved but mainly follow either a sequential (Waterfall, V-Model) or iterative (Agile, Unified Process) style.
Promotion in this stream is likely to take you down either a technical route to Senior then Principal Software Engineer, or to a managerial position such as Technical Manager or Department Manager.
