Excellent opportunity for talented software engineers with web development skills – Surrey, UK.

An exciting opportunity for a talented web developer to own the user interface and continuous integration development in a dynamic technology company that develops software for automatic video analysis.

Established in February 2007 and based near Kingston-upon-Thames, Surrey, the company is looking for a skilled web developer to join its team of experienced technical and management personnel. The company has developed a range of intelligent video analytics algorithms for PC and embedded platforms and is now embarking on a new project to exploit this technology with a web front-end.

Reporting to the product Team Leader, you will be a technology driven individual with at least 3 years commercial software development experience. The ideal candidate will show a demonstrable interest in computing and evidence of programming outside the boundaries of the workplace.

The role initially involves the development of a modern web component based user interface that is served via the video processing devices. The user interface must work across the evergreen desktop and mobile browsers to provide a consistent user experience. You will have previous development experience in developing single page MVC based web applications and testing those solutions across Windows, Linux, MacOS, Android and iOS. The role will evolve quickly into owning all of the web development at VCA so good task management and high quality work is required.

Experience with common scripting languages such as Python, Shell and Batch will also be beneficial, as part of the role will involve building our continuous integration system.

You will have at least a good (I or II-I) bachelor’s degree in Electronic Engineering, Computer Science or similar discipline from a top-tier university. You will be proficient in written and spoken English.

This is an exciting opportunity for an individual who relishes a challenge and wants to be a part of an exciting company to play a key role in shaping our new products for a high growth market area.
