Senior C++ Developer – Automotive Sector
Full Time

We are Ascent. We’re on a mission to help our customers connect data, software, and purpose to create extraordinary outcomes. You could say we are a digital transformation business. But we’d rather say we help people solve problems, or do new things, or do existing things better.

About the role

Ascent is looking for a highly motivated, results orientated C++ Developer.

The role requires motivated people who are capable of liaising and understanding customer needs within the automotive sector in order to deliver and assist in the maintenance and development of tools for automotive engineers. The tools are used by professional engineers in order to simulate, measure and calibrate Electronic Control Units (ECUs) for the cars of today and tomorrow.

A senior C++ developer will be responsible for designing and implementing solutions to customer requirements using the latest available standards and compilers. Being dedicated to quality results requires an understanding and capability of creating solutions that are inherently testable and provable to deliver on the critical nature of the requirements.

The role will expose candidates to a variety of automotive topics, technologies, and networking protocols. The candidate will engage and work as part of a team that practices well-established delivery methodologies and processes.

About the project

The project you will be working on is an AUTOSAR RTE generator. It consumes XML files that describe the various software components in an electronic control unit (ECU) and produces Embedded C code that implements the Run-Time Environment (RTE) for the described ECU.

About you

Required skills and qualifications:

  • Strong expertise in C++ 11/14/17
  • CMake, git, bash and Make considered assets
  • be familiar with Embedded C, Python and XML
  • be able to understand complex systems and standards such as AUTOSAR
  • be able to work on his/her own initiative
