The role

We are seeking a passionate software engineer to develop in-house tools to help our scientists and mechanical engineers perform instrument calibration, equipment testing and robotic automation.


You will help us support the development of our microfluidics instruments. As a software engineer at Fluidic Analytics, you will have strong teamworking skills, have a hacker mindset and play a leading role in the development of our instruments from R&D to product launch.


Fluidic Analytics is a dynamic, early-stage company that designs, develops and manufactures products that are revolutionising healthcare research through measurement of proteins. We envision a world where protein analysis is as routine as DNA sequencing, providing real-time information to guide decisions in the lab, at the bedside or even in the home.

  • UI design experience e.g. plotting
  • Software testing experience including writing automated test scripts
  • Experience of developing API’s to control bespoke electronic equipment
  • Ability to work on your own and organise work tasks to deadlines with little supervision
  • Practical pragmatic results-oriented mindset with a preference for what gets done rather than how things get done
  • Ability to take requirements from non-software scientists, design a solution and explain back to them what you are proposing in non-software language that they will understand.
  • A high-level of competence, integrity and communication


Nice to haves

  • Experience programming MATLAB
  • Experience breadboarding and programming Raspberry Pi and/or microcontrollers such as PIC, STM32, Arduino, BeagleBone or similar
