Are you a skilled Research Engineer with C++ coding skills?

You could be joining a scientific software company and working on "Tech for Good" software that enables research scientists to record and analyse their findings in the field; an example of a current project is the effect of wind farms on migrating birds and other wildlife. The multi-threaded platform manages large volumes of data and is highly complex.

As a Research Engineer you'll be collaboratively problem solving and partnering with scientists and biologists within an R&D environment to develop core backend components that interact with the hardware as well as researching new product lines and evaluating new technologies that could be introduced to the stack.

You'll initially be involved in a project to integrate Computer Vision to enable better species identification to help prevent birds from flying into wind farms via automatic detection and shut down mechanisms.

Work from Home:

You'll join colleagues in the Lisbon office with continued flexibility to work from home 2 days a week.
