GLA Research and Innovation Engineer (Computer Systems)
c.£40,791 pa Flexible working, generous pension arrangements and leave entitlement Based Harwich, Essex
The General Lighthouse Authorities of the United Kingdom and Ireland (GLA) are world leaders in the provision of safety-critical marine aids-to-navigation. The GLA consist of Trinity House (for England, Wales and the Channel Islands), The Northern Lighthouse Board (for Scotland and the Isle of Man) and the Commissioners of Irish Lights (for the whole of the Island of Ireland). GLA Research and Development (GRAD) is a key area for us as we drive leading-edge projects of global significance in the marine environment comprising satellite and terrestrial radio navigation systems, alongside physical and visual signalling systems.
This is an exciting opportunity to join our internationally-renowned GRAD team working for, and on behalf of, all three GLA applying your skills and knowledge for the benefit and safety of all mariners. You will work at our modern, waterside offices that offer good transport links to London and beyond. You will also travel to GLA locations around the United Kingdom and Ireland, with some work internationally.
Using our state-of-the-art research laboratories, you will undertake research and development, manage and deliver projects and conduct field trials. We will encourage you to publish papers at international and national conferences. In the first instance, you will work in our Computer Systems discipline, primarily on technologies and issues around the International Maritime Organisation's e-Navigation concept, but will over time, include the wider areas of the GRAD project portfolio. You will have knowledge and experience in the application of a wide variety of current programming languages and also of those now being developed, as well as a good working knowledge of systems engineering. You will also preferably possess some knowledge of e-Navigation and how it is currently being demonstrated and rolled out globally, as well as experience in Service Oriented Architectures and knowledge of database design and development.
You will be highly numerate and an experienced programmer with a degree in electronic engineering, computer systems engineering, software engineering, or similar (2:1 preferred), or suitable demonstrable experience. You will have strong experience of the systems engineering lifecycle including requirements capture, design, development, implementation and testing, as well as experience in programming languages (preferably Python, Java, C#, or C++). Ideally, you will also have experience in an engineering discipline.
You will probably have some industrial experience, be adaptable, confident and enthusiastic with good interpersonal skills and the ability to communicate effectively at all levels. Good organisation and time management skills are essential, as are well-developed IT skills. Project Management skills are also desirable.
