Cambridge Consultants undertakes over 400 cutting edge technology, design and consulting projects every year. The ICE Division focuses on three markets:

Industrial - sensors, robotics and logistics systems for precision agriculture, manufacturing and retail clients

Consumer - smart dispensing systems and connected sensor systems for the food and beverage and personal care markets

Energy - sensing & communications systems for downhole and subsea oil & gas applications, smart metering systems, and sustainability

We combine highly creative lateral thinking with excellent technical skills and a broad base of industry experience to form a powerful development team. Our work ranges from undertaking complete product developments from concept to manufacture, to providing consulting services for our clients on their technology, innovation and R&D processes.

Role Description

You will be a member of the Software Technologies group, which offers application layer software engineering and computer science skills, from real time and embedded software for standalone or connected devices, through to server side analytics frameworks, including system design, algorithm optimisation, and digital security and authentication. The group designs groundbreaking products for clients at the heart of the ‘internet of things’.

We take pride in the commercial success that our clients enjoy as a result of working with us. There will be the opportunity to further your career not just technically, but also in the fields of business development, programme management, and innovation – essential ingredients in delivering commercial value.

This is a great opportunity to take a leading technical role in our delivery of embedded systems, including working with clients to understand requirements, architecture and iterative design, detailed implementation and test, and delivery of cutting edge systems covering technologies such as machine vision, low power RF, control, and/or embedded security. Working with other system leads you will take responsibility for the definition, architecture, implementation, test, and operation of embedded systems, including working with our client engineering teams and our electronics, analytics, and RF engineers.

  • Executing project tasks to tight deadlines and rigorous quality standards within the timescales and budgets agreed with the project manager
  • Participating in meetings with clients and project teams

Minimum Requirements


  • An excellent degree or PhD in Computer Science, Electronic Engineering or a related discipline
  • Experience developing embedded C or C++ software in a regulated environment (security, medical, safety critical, automotive)
  • Strong communication skills. Ability to explain and defend design and approach, and present technical issues clearly to clients and internal teams


  • Experience working with other software disciplines (e.g. algorithms, server, or design/UX teams)
  • Experience of using Python as part of a CI system (e.g. Jenkins, GitLab)
  • Experience of interface definition languages (e.g. Protobuf, YAML)
  • Implementation of low power RF protocols
  • Implementation of low power tracking and positioning or machine vision and machine learning algorithms on embedded devices
  • Alongside ‘bare metal’ implementation, experience with Yocto or other embedded linux platforms
  • Continuous integration via Docker and/or Gitlab Runners
  • Experience in control analysis for embedded systems
