KTP Associate – Software Development Engineer
Department: School of Engineering and Built Environment
Salary Scale: Up to £25,000, plus training budget
Contract: Full Time; Fixed Term for 2 Years
Closing Date: 3 August 2012 at 5pm
The John Martin Partnership (Quantity Surveyors) Ltd, is a Building and Quantity Surveying consultancy. Through its sister company SID Asset Management, JMP markets and supports its Stock Information database (SID) property asset management software suite. Currently targeted at the social housing market the software allows users to view, edit and manage information on the condition of their housing stock and plan future works.
This project aims to implement novel extensions to SID that provide intelligent support for users planning and optimising capital works investment programmes, and for monitoring, modelling and forecasting energy consumption and CO2 emissions across housing stock. It is envisaged that the extension of the SID system to include these extra features will also require a degree of re-engineering and adaptation of the existing system so that it integrates with external data sources and third party housing and other information systems.
The role involves working with stakeholders to fully specify, develop, and trial the enhanced SID system, supporting business development through demonstrating the system to prospective customers, and the commissioning of the enhanced system with existing and new customers.
This challenging position is based at JMP in the centre of Glasgow and will provide an ambitious and committed candidate with invaluable career development and support for a Masters level qualification where appropriate.
The successful candidate should possess a high degree of numeracy and a minimum of a 2.1 or higher degree in Computing, Mathematics, Engineering or Physics. Experience, and a strong aptitude and interest in software development is essential, preferably using Microsoft .Net / ASP .NET and Microsoft SQL Server. Prior knowledge of developing mobile applications, and algorithms for planning, scheduling and optimisation would also be desirable.
Candidates must have excellent organisational, interpersonal, practical and problem solving skills. Strong analytical skills are also important. Candidates should be enthusiastic and confident with the ability to influence people.
You must have the right to live and work in the United Kingdom to apply for this vacancy.
