Our client is a world leader in the design and development of remote/local/global control software and associated products. Their products are commonly found in multiple industries including government, transport, financial, medical and many more.

The company has a very strong financial platform/position in the market (no debt, nor venture capital) - it is entirely privately owned and funded. The company is profitable and also boasts never having had a relational month down on sales. The company is proud to advise that have never made anyone redundant in their long tenure.

They sell their products around the world and work with the latest hardware/software technology - most of which they engineer in house.

Virtually all the work that their software engineers work on is focused on research and development - meaning that there is a very creative/innovative environment (which is strongly encouraged and financially rewarded). The company also has a range of patents for their technology - they also sell their products to other major manufacturers, who rebrand and sell on their goods.

Their team are highly technical and work to a low level (all coding is in embedded C on Linux Debian). This is because their work is centred around best use of the memory where "every byte counts".
