Cambridge, UK

Due to continued growth and the success of our products DisplayLink requires a Scrum Master for our Development Team.

The successful candidate will have first-hand experience of working with a Scrum team delivering products to market.  The role would work closely with:

a) the Product Owner to bring clarity and value to the backlog

b) the Development Team to drive efficiency through self-organisation and removal of impediments

c) Stakeholders to increase productivity through reduction of organisational impediments.

Essential requirements:

  • Proven track record facilitating Scrum events such as sprints, planning meetings, daily scrums and retrospectives
  • Experience coaching a team to bring continuous improvement to their workflow
  • A solid technical background with an ability to pick up new technologies
  • Commercial C++ or Java experience
  • Thorough understanding of Agile frameworks

Desirable Attributes:

  • Experience of other Agile frameworks such as Kanban
  • Involvement in Agile community of practice

Are you an Embedded Software Engineer who likes to straddle hardware and software and loves having a wide variety of instrumentation on your desk?

Our developers relish having to implement solutions from both areas and have had to acquire many new skills along the way. For example in addition to writing drivers in the software, you may well end up helping to verify the silicon designs as well.

Do you enjoy flexible working hours and excellent development tools and facilities? We do, for example we have custom built scrum stand-up rooms and core hours of 10am to 4pm.

Interested? Then help us design, develop and improve the embedded software for our evolving range of network display ASICs. We’d expect you to be an experienced, passionate and creative engineer with experience of developing embedded software for System on Chip (SoC) products.

Your experience will demonstrate an ability to write assembler, C and ideally C++ programs targeted at embedded systems, primarily 32 bit processors. You should also have strong skills in prototyping, debugging and hardware bring-up.

Experience of Video interfacing (e.g. HDMI, DisplayPort), or Communication protocols – e.g. USB, Ethernet, Wi-Fi (802.11g/n/ac) will enable you to contribute quickly.

If you enjoy agile software development then join our team that uses industry best practices and guiding principles that include responsiveness, trust, aspiration and audaciousness. We invest in the best tools to give you the most productive environment, such as custom built rooms for our scrum stand-ups. You would also get to work flexible hours (core hours being 10am to 4pm) to help fit in with your lifestyle.

This is an opportunity for you to master a new technical area and contribute to high quality engineering methodology by knowledge sharing, encouraging best practice and mentoring less experienced members of the team.

You won’t simply cut code – you’d contribute significantly by engaging in discussions and exploring potential alternative solutions. In addition you will participate in the analysis, definition and time estimates of features and projects. This is a chance to grow your technical and team leading abilities.

If you have a solid C/C++ and understanding of low level hardware and systems, skills in areas such as compression, optimisation and cryptography, Real Time Operating Systems and experience in a few of: Windows, MAC, USB, Ethernet and audio, then please get in touch!

Why do you do Project Management? Are you a believer in the benefits of the Agile methodology?

Due to the nature of our products we HAVE to be agile in order to meet our customer’s desires and to react quickly to the market.

Our company embraces agile strongly - we even have custom built Scrum rooms to help our staff with their meetings.

Our dedicated Project Managers live and breathe Project Management as they are responsible for managing, coordinating and directing a number of internal engineering and customer facing projects across the full product lifecycle, from definition to release. Project Management is what they do, it’s why they come into work and enjoy the day.
The projects vary in size, duration and focus but usually involve cross-disciplinary Agile feature development teams (hardware, firmware and software) and generally will range from 5 to 30 people in size, with timescales from a few weeks to many months.

To be successful and enjoy this role a Kaizen mind-set is required with the aim to define and refine the product development processes by identifying and introducing best practices from within, and outside of the organisation.

This is not a technical hands-on role, but being able to understand and interact with the development engineers is essential, as is the ability to relay technical issues to a managerial and customer audience.

Previous experience in at least one of the disciplines of software or hardware development is therefore essential.

In addition, knowledge of, and experience in, a number of different development methodologies is required, as is a past history of successfully delivering engineering projects in the consumer electronics or software industries.If this sounds interesting, please get in touch via recruitment@displaylink.com !

Please Note: We are unable to accept CVs from candidates requiring a work permit

Have you progressed from being a Software Product Owner to leading and providing oversight of all Software Product Owners? Are you responsible for ensuring all Agile Software Teams are delivering maximum value to the business, and to the customers and users?

Are you still hands on, for example fulfilling the role of SW Product Owner directly for a development team and thus leading by example?

If so then this is an ideal opportunity for you to champion best practice in Agile Product Ownership, engaging with the Agile SW community and facilitating positive change within DisplayLink.

You would help teams maximize their velocities; assessing and maximizing the business value delivered by each development team.

To succeed in this role would also need:

  • Experience as a Product Owner delivering High Volume / Mass Market software
  • A broad understanding of Agile methodologies and best practice SW design principles
  • Stakeholder management and demonstrably commercially astute
  • Knowledge of automated and unit level testing, or TDD

Do you enjoy designing ICs that are used by millions of end users?

Like to see your work appear in big name consumer products?

If so then join our IC Design team to design and implement our innovative network display products which are natively supported in a number of operating systems including Chrome, Windows, Mac and Linux.

You will be involved in many or all aspects of the design process from specification and architecture through RTL design of modules, functional verification, synthesis and timing closure, to silicon validation and production test.

Optimisation and enhancement of device level architecture are also key aspects of this role.

Please take a read of http://www.displaylink.com/small-office/benefits to see why you would enjoy developing our products.

Is software testing is what you do? Is it what you love, and frankly you couldn’t see yourself doing anything else?

If so, you could be the one driving testing forward for the team.

Are you aware of the continuing developments within the testing domain and enjoy mining all sources of information necessary to understand the issues at hand?

In our agile teams your testing isn’t an afterthought, it’s something we believe in passionately and our testers are there from the very beginning of a project. It’s much cheaper to find ‘bugs’ in ideas than to wait until there is an actual product to test.

Are you one of the new breed of testers? For example do you understand what exploratory testing is? Do you know it’s not simply ‘ad hoc’ testing?

Do you:

  • have experience of test automation and know when to and when not to automate
  • realise that quality is value to some person
  • have an aptitude for software development / scripting

The environment will make the most of your experience in areas such as setting up PCs, PC peripherals and networks, using Windows 10, 8, 7, Mac and any experience of performing Device Driver, Hardware, Firmware, Software, Video, Installer, GUI or Desktop testing.
