The successful candidate will bring their experience and expertise in continuous software integration to ensuring the quality of the numerical tools underpinning First Light’s approach. We are looking for someone with a deep understanding of Continuous Integration (CI) and Quality Assurance (QA) best practises, who will be able to use that knowledge, to maintain and develop further our current continuous integration systems.
Our primary numerical physics capability is an adaptive front-tracking hydro-code, with coupled conduction, radiation and microphysics models. The code is core to the business plan and a very important company asset. The successful candidate will provide invaluable support to the robustness and validation of this code, which is critical to the goals of the in-house experimental team. The team takes an agile approach using the Atlassian toolset.
This is a new position within the numerical physics team, as such there will be opportunity for the successful candidate to bring their own attributes to inform, develop, implement and manage software QA procedures within the role.
