    • Significant software development experience, preferably in C/C++
    • Wide knowledge of programming languages and paradigms
    • Experience of designing large software systems
    • Comfortable and experienced working on software with a team, communicating ideas, and writing code that can be understood by others
    • Experience with collaboration tools (e.g. version control, bug tracking systems) and general programming tools (e.g. a debugger, profiler, software testing tools)
    • A 2:1 degree or higher in Mathematics, Computer Science, Science, or Engineering
    • Ability to understand technical and advanced research material and transfer new ideas into code

Desirable Skills:

    • Experience with formal methods and/or type theory in practice
