Enigma People Solutions is working with our client Skylark Lasers to recruit a highly motivated Software Engineer to join their R&D innovation team.  You will be joining a growing company that is highly collaborative and proud to be involved in a range of interesting new development projects.

Specialising in the development and production of CW single frequency DPSS lasers Skylark Lasers’ proprietary BRaMMS Technology® platform delivers outstanding spectral performance with some of the highest output powers in the market. 

Working in a creative and innovative environment, you will face various challenges on a day-to-day basis with a focus on creating truly unique laser systems with a particular interest in quantum technology applications.

Quantum Technologies hold great promise to bring a step-change improvement to a diverse range of high-impact applications, such as ultra-stable clocks for financial transaction time stamping and satellite-free navigation, medical imaging, oil and gas prospecting, and ultra-secure communications. Whilst the scientific principles upon which these technologies rely are now largely proven, the subsystems (in particular, laser systems) upon which they depend are excessively large, expensive, and power-hungry.
