1d ago

At Oxford Instruments, we enable the world’s leading industrial companies and scientific research communities to image, analyse and manipulate materials down to the atomic and molecular level.

Our customers use our NanoScience ultra-low temperature and high magnetic field environments to go beyond what was once thought possible, whether that’s creating Nobel Prize winning materials or developing quantum computers to solve the world’s most complex problems.

We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced Software Engineer or Senior Software Engineer to join our Technology team and work on our cutting-edge scientific products.

This is a varied role, that will see you working on new projects, involving the full software lifecycle (concept to test), as well as maintenance of existing products and your contribution will help to ensure that we meet our customers’ expectations.

The opportunity

In this role, you will be developing and supporting software applications and drivers for a range of NanoScience’s products and instruments.

This includes writing clean maintainable code, understanding the operating principles of our systems, identifying delivery risk areas within a project, as well as implementing unit tests.

About You

For this role, we are looking for a dynamic individual who is looking to work in a varied and fast paced team environment.

Ideally you will have experience with using programmable instruments, however this is not essential. It is essential that you have previous experience of programming in either C or C++ and use of a range of communication protocols.

Experience of C# or Python would be desirable and it would also be beneficial if you are familiar with version control principles and systems.

A degree in a relevant subject would be an advantage but is not essential with sufficient proven experience. The role of Senior Software Engineer will be considered for applicants with skills and experience commensurate for this level.


In addition to a competitive starting salary, Oxford Instruments offers flexible working hours and a half-day on Fridays, 25 days annual leave, private healthcare, a share incentive plan, a defined contribution Group Personal Pension Plan, and a flexible benefits package that you can tailor to your own requirements.

All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, colour, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, or disability.

Please do not forward candidate details in response to this advert, or to any Oxford Instruments employees or other company locations.
