Who are we?
The Parasolid group is part of Siemens Industry Software, who specialise in providing software products to support all facets of the manufacturing industry.
Parasolid is a 3D modelling toolkit used in hundreds of the world’s leading Computer Aided Design, Engineering and Manufacturing programs. Parasolid has been at the cutting edge of 3D design for over 30 years, with a wide range of technology leaders and household names, such as Apple, SpaceX, Red Bull F1, Lego, Canon, and Dyson, designing their products on systems powered by Parasolid. With over 4 million engineers and designers using Parasolid-based applications daily, you are rarely more than a metre away from a product designed with Parasolid geometry.
Where are we?
We are based in Cambridge, UK, close to the central railway station. It’s easy to get to by foot, bike, car, bus or train. We’re next door to the beautiful Botanical Gardens and a few minutes’ walk from the historic centre of town.
Why are we recruiting?
Parasolid has always been a market leader but we don’t intend to rest on our laurels. We are continually generating new ideas for better products and enhancements to our current products.
We are strengthening our development team to meet the needs of our customers and to ensure we transform our innovations into top quality software.
Who are we looking for?
We are looking for 2nd year students to work with our team, during their summer break, to create new and improve existing web solutions used by the team.
We are looking for someone studying web development or another computing related subject who has a keen interest in becoming a web developer.
If you are passionate about producing good efficient software to support our development team, then we would love to hear from you.
How do we develop?
Our software engineers work in small teams of 5-6, and all the teams interact closely to provide the best solutions for our customers.
Everyone has their own desk, a high spec PC with plenty of RAM and CPU power to run and debug the code on real world customer data, and a couple of monitors.
Our products are written in C and C++. We often use other languages, like python and C#, for in-house tools. We use Visual Studio for some products and our in-house development environment for others, along with a variety of commercial and home grown tools to speed up the development process.
A fully automated testing infrastructure is built into the development environment to allow for rapid feedback on code changes. Once changes are submitted we have a comprehensive system to test our products on customer data, ensuring quality before the software leaves the building.
Why work for Siemens?
Siemens offers competitive salaries and a great range of employee benefits. We work flexible working hours and the dress code is casual.
We share our building with other Siemens Industry Software teams offering opportunities to work in other teams, either temporary or permanently.
There is an active social scene with a wide variety of clubs and social events.
