Job Details

We are working with an award-winning software vendor that currently has a fantastic permanent opportunity for a Design Tools and UI Engineer to join its team, based in the North West of England.

As a Design Tools and UI Engineer, you will develop complex PyQT-based user interfaces whilst incorporating new tools into a newly-created software range. You will implement and test interfaces and implementation code and carry out bug-fixing as required. Working closely with design teams, you will suggest innovative engineering solutions to implement their ideas to fit with task requirements and provide regular progress updates on product deadlines and goals.

Reporting to the Lead Engineer, you will be expected to adhere to software engineering practices to implement complex product features and document your work concisely within the source code. You may also be required to assist the support, sales and QA departments with any product queries, as well as representing the company on visits to current and future customers to further understand their requirements.

To be successful in this role you should be a confident desktop application engineer with expert knowledge of Python. You must show specific experience of PyQT and developing software on Linux OS with cross platform skills.

Candidates will ideally have experience of working in the post production or VFX industries, although knowledge of game engines (Unity, Unreal Engine), 3D graphics or geometric data concepts would be equally beneficial. Knowledge of C++ development tools and processes would be highly advantageous, as would an understanding of multi-threaded programming.

This is an exciting chance to lead a company renowned for its market-leading solutions into a new sector and play an influential role in the success of its future product releases.

If you feel that you have the necessary skills and are eligible to live and work in the UK without restriction,please apply now for immediate consideration.
