SeeByte, global market leader in the development of smart software for unmanned maritime systems, are looking to recruit Software Engineers for a position within our team in our Edinburgh office.

You can expect to be joining the Neptune team which develops SeeByte's cutting-edge robotics autonomy architecture and framework. This robotics software architecture is used worldwide to allow collaboration between underwater robots to carry out complex, automated tasks.

The role will offer opportunities for work with state-of-the-art subsea robots, global travel and at-sea experiments. Your role will also include client visits internationally and participation in in-water tests and trials, giving you the chance to see the real-world applications of the software you have created.

This is a fantastic opportunity to work for an innovative and forward thinking company with
an international client base.

Benefits include:

Main Purpose of the Role

The successful applicant will become part of the team of experienced engineers working on Neptune, a software package which facilitates autonomous collaboration between unmanned vehicles working towards a common mission objective. Neptune leverages modular, scalable and open service oriented architecture and facilitates the effective planning, execution and monitoring of multi-robot adaptive survey operations in real time. The implementation will primarily focus on C++ and ROS (Robot Operating System), with some additional potential opportunities for code development in Python or Java / Netbeans. Support and training will be given to allow you to develop and grow within the role as required and become a highly skilled specialist in robotic based software engineering.
