A fantastic opportunity has arisen with my client for a Software Engineer who specialises in Cloud based platform technology.

If you are interested in working with small but powerful microcontrollers or the latest Bluetooth MESH standard then this could very well be the role you have been looking for.

Does this sound like a role for you? If so, we need to talk. Call Mark Clark on (phone number removed) today.
