The race to create fusion based energy has been on for a while now. The finish line now appears to be in sight. We are very close to achieving an 'infinite', clean and most importantly a sustainable power source for the world. 

Due to continued growth, a forward thinking and broad-based software engineer is required. You will have strong Python and some C++ experience. The primary software products are a high-speed physics impact simulator written in C++, with a Python front end, and a magnetohydrodynamics simulator written in Fortran. 

The system is based on Atlassian Bamboo and is implemented using Python and bash. You should be familiar with Linux, shell scripting and complex Python systems. Some familiarity with and ability to debug C++ will also be useful. The software products are used internally by the physics and data science teams and, depending on your level of experience, you may also be providing troubleshooting, bug fixing and support to these users, possibly leading to a software development role.

This is a fantastic role for developers who like to problem solve and utilise your analytical mind. You will also have an opportunity to change the world for the better!
