Not every developer can say their code helps make a supercar work. At Ascent, you’ll be helping to make the vehicles of the future work, too!

About the role:

We are looking for experienced C++ Developers to join the team who are part of a long-term program with our customer, a leader in the automotive technology sector. The tools we work on are used by professional engineers to simulate, measure and calibrate Electronic Control Units (ECUs) for the cars of today and tomorrow.

Joining us as a Senior Developer in this team puts you at the heart of this project, working closely with our customers every day. You will be responsible for designing and implementing solutions to customer requirements using the latest available standards and compilers. Being dedicated to quality results requires an understanding and capability of creating solutions that are inherently testable and provable, which is why we need experienced developers, able to ensure these critical requirements are handled well.

This role will be remote and will expose you to a variety of automotive topics, technologies, and networking protocols. Our team practices well-established delivery methodologies and processes, and our long collaboration with our customers has led to a lot of great innovations and successes.

Skills & Experience needed:

We’ll hire someone who will have:

  • Strong expertise in C++ including C++11/14
  • Familiarity with Visual Studio
  • Familiarity with the Unit Testing principle
  • The mindset that likes working with complex systems and protocols such as CAN, LIN, FLEXRAY, Automotive Ethernet.
  • If you have experience with git, bash, VMs and basic Linux usage, we’d consider it an asset.

We will keep things straightforward – we will talk about some genuine problems we have to solve, ask for your technical opinion and insight on some real-life situations, and we will explore how you might share and amplify our values of Energy, Empathy, and Audacity in the way you work, and how you interact with others.

Working at Ascent:

We’re looking to fill this role in Malta or Bulgaria so salary and benefits do vary slightly by location.

We choose hybrid working when you balance time at the office with time and home; an environment where your development and learning will be taken seriously, and we’ll support your professional development with training and certification as an authority in your field, and regular feedback and review.
