Control / Embedded Software Engineer

5 Month Contract – Closing Date – 17th July

Ideally you are an experienced,  professional engineer, who is technically and intellectually sharp.  This will be demonstrated by you holding a high grade MEng or similar level qualification from a reputable university

You will have a minimum of between 3 and 5 years experience and will be both a self starter and a team player.  You will have an inquisitive mind and a strong desire to succeed.

You will buy-in to our team philosophies of “push until its done”!

Responsibilities will include

Responsible for development of embedded / electronic control systems on a wide array of multi-faceted marine development projects.

  • Control system architecture – definition of the control layout (controllers, communication busses, HMI, hierarchy, component selection)
  • Design of software architecture
  • Systems Engineering – working with the wider design team to ensure that our hydraulic & electrical component sizing, mechanical design, schematic layout, and software control strategy are joined up and will work effectively as a system
  • Analysis & Simulation – Full up-front system and control strategy simulation using Simulink / Simscape
  • Use of simulations for SIL and HIL rig development
  • Embedded development – Control code development for all parts of the system in C, Simulink or similar auto-coding environments
  • Calibration and setup – commissioning and calibration of the system on rigs and test boats
  • Testing and development – development of new testing methods, notably SIL & HIL, running sea trials- including planning, execution, analysis & reporting
  • Coding standards and good practice – you will be required to assist in continually developing our processes, standards and tools to ensure our software and calibration are robust and reliable
  • Partner liaison – Where we work closely with external consultants your role would include working alongside them and managing their workload


  • Designing and commissioning performance-critical electrical and / or hydraulic control systems in a similar field – e.g. Automotive, Aerospace, or Marine
  • Previous experience of HEV control systems – eMotor control, battery management systems and DC-DC convertors is desirable
  • Control system software development – ideally both in C and Simulink or equivalent
  • Plant model development in a physical modelling tool (Simulink, Dymola, Amesim or equivalent)
  • Whole-system understanding: including electrical, hydraulic, control, calibration, and mechanical aspects
  • Distributed control systems development
  • Vehicle network communications – CAN, LIN, Flexray, NMEA 2000
  • Practical Electrical / electronic experience would be useful but is not vital
