Software Engineers
£27,500 – £43,500 (+ relocation costs if required)
Full-time, Permanent

Ever thought about writing code for racing yachts or cutting-edge medical devices? Dreamt of working on globally recognised, award-winning products? Or wished you worked just minutes from the beach?

At Bluefruit, that’s what we do.

Recognised worldwide for the quality of our code and our Agile practices, clients come to us for reliable, innovative solutions. And with the current explosive growth in the embedded and IoT industry, demand for our services gets bigger every day. That’s why we’re looking for outstanding software engineers to join our teams across a number of exciting new projects.

About you

We’re looking for passionate, open-minded programmers of all experience levels — and you’re looking for technically-challenging software projects and a workplace full of intelligent, friendly people.

You have C or C++ programming skills, can debug faults and use version control. You are familiar with Agile software development practices, such as TDD, BDD, pair programming, sprints, or user stories. It would be great if you also have recent industry experience.

If you are applying for a senior position, we would also be looking for you to have specific technical expertise. For example, your expertise may be embedded microcontrollers, AI, or User Interface development, and so on. Plus, you would be expected to have the ability to coach more junior team members and be able to take the lead on delivering projects.

To be part of Bluefruit, you should demonstrate that you are a keen problem solver, you enjoy working to a very high standard, communicate effectively, and want to work as part of a high-performing team.

Formal academic qualifications aren’t required, but your programming skills should be second to none. For our senior positions, experience of embedded systems (working with PIC, ARM or AVR architectures, for example) is a big plus.

…and us

At Bluefruit, we don’t just talk about work/life balance – we actively encourage it. From flexible working hours, to letting our people create their own working environment, we work hard to ensure everyone here enjoys coming into work.

We are committed to providing training for everyone in the company to realise their potential. Our company was created by engineers for engineers and, as an EOT company, it’s important to us that all our people have a say in how we develop our business.

Our culture is built around an unerring focus on delivering high-quality code for intelligent products that users love and clients value. We encourage efficient and open communication, and shared responsibility for design and implementation. And we review each other’s work all the time – everyone at Bluefruit constantly seeks out opportunities to learn and improve.

We’re privileged to live in one of the most beautiful parts of the UK – and we all want time to enjoy it, so we focus on flexi-time, not overtime. We also offer a range of benefits, including:

  • EOT profit related bonus – tax free up to £3,600 per year
  • Regular salary reviews
  • 25 days holiday (plus bank holidays)
  • Flexitime available
  • Onsite Gym
  • Free fruit, tea and coffee (and ice creams in the summer)
  • Chill out room with pool table
  • Great maternity and paternity leave benefits
  • Employee Assistance Programme (EAP)
  • Healthcare cashback scheme
  • Free access to a financial planner
  • Cycle to work scheme
