We are looking for a Computer Programmer/Software Developer to be involved with an innovative new product. This KTP project offers a fantastic opportunity for an ambitious graduate to launch a new career with the support of company and academic mentors. MFDS have joined forces with the University of Wolverhampton on this KTP project to enable the evaluation of building energy performance.

To support your commitment to continuous self-development you will have a generous personal development budget in addition to management training provided by the KTP scheme. You will be able to access the resources of the university as required.

You will be employed by The University of Wolverhampton and will be based at MFDS in Hereford. You must be willing to travel independently both within the UK and overseas.

Skills required: You should hold a minimum of BSc (Hons) 2:1 in computer science or subjects very closely related to this.

You must also be able to demonstrate the ability to programme using C# or equivalent programming language and having knowledge of sensor based technology would be advantageous too. You should also have the skills to manage this project, with the ability to build and maintain collaborative internal and external relationships and be able to work flexibly in a team environment.
