About The Role CIQHP

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a talented graduate or early career software developer with an innovative mind, to work on our traffic and transport software products. Already established within major cities across the globe, TRL software has been driving efficiencies, reducing journey times and increasing safety on the roads for many years. Our solutions are now being evolved and reimagined to meet the needs of future mobility and to become embedded in the fabric of connected and automated vehicles.

This is an ideal opportunity for an enthusiastic developer with a desire to cultivate a career building impactful real-world applications alongside industry experts. The role is highly technical and will involve a great deal of learning from the outset.

Key Duties / Responsibilities

With support from an established team, you will contribute to a full range of software development tasks in an Agile environment whilst building an understanding of the traffic models and technologies that underpin the products. You will be expected to demonstrate an active interest in the application of our products as well as their development, and will play a part in analysing results and contributing to the development of new algorithms and models.

Your main software development environment will be Microsoft .Net (C#/VB.NET) but you may also work with Python, C, C++ and other languages. You will also gain exposure to technologies such as .NET Core, Angular, REST and Xamarin for iOS & Android development, and deploy cloud based solutions to Azure & AWS.
