What we do

Our embedded software engineers work with some of the biggest IoT and streaming TV businesses in the world. Our clients provide service to over 50 million paying subscribers worldwide, and the code they write drives the platforms that millions of people interact with every day of the year.

We work across the full software stack, developing cutting edge next generation platforms for streaming TV and other Internet of Things products, incorporating modern features such as voice interaction and cloud-connected services. We also work hard to maintain older workhorse products (embedded Linux-based cable and satellite TV boxes), which provide the interesting challenges of integrating new features into complex legacy stacks, improving performance and stability and working within the constraints of limited memory and CPU power.

The Graduate Engineer Role

We hire bright, confident graduates with a strong technical education, excellent communication skills, a passion for technology and a desire to learn and develop through hands-on work.

We don’t have a formal training programme – instead our graduates join real client-facing Scrum teams and deliver working code from the outset. You’ll work with your team lead and experienced colleagues to select tasks that will stretch your capabilities and allow you to learn on the job. Our clients use a range of technologies and programming languages – C++ and Java are common, but graduates are normally able to turn their hand to any language that they may be asked to use.

Your line manager will act as a mentor and you will work together to plan your career development and access any training required.

Where we work

Our Shipley, West Yorkshire office is a few miles outside both Leeds and Bradford. It’s a great place to live and work. We’re located mid-way between the urban and the rural – if city living’s your thing, you could set up home just 20 minutes away by train in Leeds’ bustling city centre, or find somewhere quieter to live in one of the surrounding towns or villages.

Close to work, there are great places to eat, drink (Yorkshire is awash with craft breweries, including Saltaire Brewery just around the corner from us), and relax, including the World Heritage Site of Saltaire a short walk away.

Compared to much of the country, rents are affordable and your competitive salary will go a long way.

About the team

As a consulting business, our team is our product, and you’ll be working with a great bunch of colleagues. We have a flexible approach to work - you can set your own working patterns that fit with the needs of your team and client, and while the role is predominantly office-based, occasional remote working is normally possible.

We have a friendly, small-company approach, meaning no big HR or IT departments to contend with. You’ll work closely with your line manager and project lead and they will ensure that you have access to all the tools and training you need to do your job effectively and develop your career in the direction that’s right for you.

What we do

Our embedded software engineers work with some of the biggest streaming TV businesses in the world. Our clients provide service to over 50 million paying subscribers worldwide, and the code they write drives the platforms that millions of people interact with in their free time, every day of the year.

Powering that lot is a range of hardware and software and we work across the full stack. Most of us love developing cutting edge next generation platforms (based on the likes of Android TV and RDK and incorporating modern features such as voice interaction and 100% on demand internet-streaming content). We also work hard to maintain older workhorse products (embedded Linux-based cable and satellite TV boxes), which provide the interesting challenges of integrating new features into complex legacy stacks, improving performance and stability and working within the constraints of limited memory and CPU power. Everything is online and connected where possible, so we work with networking technologies at every level, from WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity and network configuration, through to video streaming (HLS, MPEG DASH), cloud services and remote health monitoring.

The Tech Lead Role

Our Technical Leads are the key people in ensuring that our teams deliver what our clients need. You will set the technical direction for the team, helping them solve difficult problems and design solutions that work.

We work in Agile project teams, meaning every team member makes a crucial contribution, but often engineers need the right mix of encouragement and leadership-by-example to get the job done. You’ll advise on technical matters (whether that is architecture, the best way to write a piece of code or solve a problem, or performing a code review). You will be the main technical point of contact for our client, so you’ll be able to explain complex technical detail in a straightforward way. Sometimes you may do double-duty as a Scrum Master, making sure the team is sticking to their agile approach and focusing their attention in the right areas, as well as dealing with any impediments that get in their way.

As projects start up and ramp down throughout the year, you will get the chance to work with a variety of technologies and clients over your career here, keeping your skills fresh, and there are opportunities to develop into either a deeply technical or a line management role according to what suits you best.

Where we work

Our Shipley, West Yorkshire office is a few miles outside both Leeds and Bradford. It’s a great place to live and work. We’re located mid-way between the urban and the rural – if city living’s your thing, you could set up home just 20 minutes away by train in Leeds’ bustling city centre (which is only an hour further from Manchester and just over two hours from London). If you want to live in a stone-built cottage on an isolated hillside, or bring up your family in a traditional rural village or smart market town, you can do that and still be able to commute in 30 minutes or less (by car, bus, train; or even bike along the picturesque Leeds-Liverpool Canal, which passes right by the office).

Closer to work, there are great places to eat, drink (Yorkshire is awash with craft breweries, including Saltaire Brewery just around the corner from us), and relax, including the World Heritage Site of Saltaire a short walk away.

Compared to much of the country, house prices and rents are affordable, and we can offer a relocation package to successful candidates who are moving to the area.

We have a friendly, small-company approach, meaning no big HR or IT departments to contend with. You’ll work closely with your line manager and project lead and they will ensure that you have access to all the tools and training you need to do your job effectively and develop your career in the direction that’s right for you.

Position Summary:

You will be performing software test activities for a complex enterprise class security product based on micro-virtualization. The position will largely involve automated testing, scripting and some manual testing as and when required, to help assure the quality of our product as well as identify any risks in our SDLC.

Our ideal candidate will have excellent problem investigation and technical communication skills. You’ll be detailed oriented, have an enthusiasm for testing complex software and, although knowledge of security vulnerabilities would be a bonus, it isn’t essential.

Job Responsibilities:

· Plan, design and write automated tests for new and existing features and bug fixes
· Monitor and help maintain automated tests systems, cooperating with DevOps and Developers
· Write, maintain and execute manual test cases for areas where automated testing isn’t appropriate
· Debug and troubleshoot issues uncovered during testing
· Investigate defects and submit defect reports

Company Overview:

Bromium was founded in 2010 with a mission to restore trust in computing. The company’s founders have a long and deep history of innovation in virtualization and security. Inspired by the isolation principles of traditional virtualization, the Bromium team has created a game-changing technology called micro-virtualization to protect end users against advanced malware. Every task the user performs, such as opening a document or clicking on a link, is isolated in its own micro-VM, with access to just the resources required for that task, and existing just for the life of the task. Protection is thus provided through isolation, without relying on detection, hence reliably defending the user from polymorphic and even zero-day malware.

Bromium has its corporate HQ in Cupertino,California and an R&D center in Cambridge, UK. The company is backed by top-tier investors, including Andreessen Horowitz, Ignition Capital, Highland Capital Partners, Intel Capital, Meritech Capital and Lightspeed Venture Partners.
