Software Engineer - Code Generation and Build

Job Summary

Join a core development team and enhance the experience of users performing code generation from MATLAB and Simulink.    MATLAB and Simulink are the products of choice for engineers doing Model-Based Design. Our customers use our products to:

  • Model and simulate their dynamic systems (e.g., cars, aircraft, spacecraft)
  • Design the algorithms needed to control these systems
  • Automatically generate production embedded software that is deployed in the real system


You will work on the MATLAB and Simulink Coder build process that drives code generation and manages build information for makefile generation/execution and code packaging to support a variety of host and target application use cases, including simulation, verification, and deployment.


You will be tasked with creating tools of exceptional quality that accelerate the development of embedded software.   You will be responsible for designing, implementing and validating new features to support this workflow including:

  • An overall distributed system build process that automatically triggers multiple application, component and sub-component code generation from Simulink models, with integrated runtime environment code allowing support for real-time operating systems, bare board systems, and a wide variety of hardware platforms
  • Integration with industry standard tooling for flexible software build
  • Application of parallel code generation and build technology for maximum performance


To achieve this, you will be required to work closely with other team members in Cambridge, UK and Natick, North America.

Minimum Qualifications

  • A bachelor's degree and 5 years of professional work experience (or a master's degree) is required.

Additional Qualifications

  • A good first degree in Computer Science, Engineering, Mathematics, Physics or a related discipline from a top tier university
  • Industry-strength, software development experience in C++ or other object-oriented programming language
  • Experience with compiler toolchains and build environments
  • Solid oral and written communication
  • Self-motivated, independent worker, with a history of driving tasks to completion
