About the roles
Engineering Software Developer – London or Solihull
We have an exciting opportunity to grow our team of software developers. You will join our London or Solihull offices working in a wider team of around 20 developers to develop the market leading Oasys Suite of pre- and post-processing software for the LS-DYNA finite element analysis code.
