software engineer

At McCarthy’s, we develop fully integrated software for the management of core meat processing and value-added food production, throughout Australasia. We have a reputation as trusted, reliable innovator in our industry and are currently looking for a new team member to uphold and advance this excellent standing.

We are based in the Hawke’s Bay where an affordable lifestyle and great weather are just two of the many reasons why it’s a great place to call home.  No traffic jams. The beach, rivers and great wineries on your doorstep.

We are seeking an exceptionally talented software engineer with excellent server side programming, database and architectural skills to work on a ground breaking cloud project.  We are separating out the core server side programming from the front end for this role, which means you will be focussing on the REST APIs, data optimisation, algorithms and performance rather than the UI aspects.

This role will suit someone with a strong interest and experience in cross platform, scalable and distributed processing of large datasets.  You will be an excellent programmer with an aptitude for algorithms and software research.  You will pride yourself in developing high quality code that is robust, secure, fit for purpose and easy to maintain.

This is a very rare opportunity for a talented and passionate software engineer. You might have open source development experience, come from an academic background or have been involved in similar leading edge projects. Either way, you will have a background that clearly demonstrates your suitability for this role.

It goes without saying that this role will provide ample opportunity for growth, learning and advancement of your skillsets into numerous leading edge fields.

 Ideally you will have experience in all of the following:

  • C++ (11)
  • Linux
  • PostgreSQL (+ libpq)
  • SQL ( + PLPGSQL)
  • HTTP, HTTPS, JSON
  • OpenSSL

You’ll get extra points for any of the following:

  • Java (OSGI + Hibernate + jdbc)
  • AWS/Azure/Other (IaaS, PaaS)
  • Python
  • Windows

You will also be contributing to process improvement and providing assistance when required to the software support and testing staff. You will need to be a good collaborator, who can contribute to brainstorming, coherently explain and rationalise concepts and ideas, and be willing to compromise if necessary.

At McCarthy’s we foster a culture of care and consideration for our team, our customers and the solutions we provide. We look after our people and enjoy what we do. We also offer a competitive salary commensurate to the skills and level of experience sought.

If you believe you would be a good fit for this role then we would love to hear from you.
