Are you…

  • a dedicated software developer?
  • passionate about geometry?
  • ready to play a major role in an exciting new additive manufacturing project?

This is your opportunity to gain valuable and transferable skills in a high-profile team – and drive a project that sets new standards in additive manufacturing (3D printing). You will also receive mentoring from the company and an experienced academic, with the potential to gain a professional qualification.

The role

You will be a pivotal player in a joint initiative between leading advanced design engineering company, Generative Parametrics, and the University of Bath.

Your role will be to develop planning and control software for a new additive manufacturing technology. The technology will unlock design and printing possibilities that additive manufacturing has previously been unable to tackle.

You will be based at the company’s offices in Melksham and work closely with the university’s academic team. In the second year, you will collaborate with a new member of staff responsible for developing the technology’s control system electronics and hardware. The result of your combined efforts? A ground-breaking and commercially viable additive manufacturing prototype.

Throughout, you will manage and implement new developments for the company, and help Generative Parametrics progress in an exciting market. 

About you

You will have:

  • a PhD or equivalent in a technical field, such as computer science, physics or engineering
  • in-depth knowledge of polymer additive manufacturing technologies
  • 3D-modelling skills to manipulate component geometries in software
  • skills and experience in software development and programming
  • a software design background with industrial or research experience in robotics, production or control system setting
  • excellent communication skills.

About the contract

The contract is full time for a fixed term of 24 months with the possibility of securing permanent employment.

This position has arisen as part of a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) between Generative Parametrics and the University of Bath’s Department of Mechanical Engineering.
