ADLENS Head Office Enysham, UK


At Adlens we are pioneering the development of lenses that change focus like the human eye – enhancing vision in AR, VR and eyewear.
Now that Adlens is growing, we have the opportunity to recruit a science graduate to join our R&D team as a Graduate Software Engineer. In this role you will have the opportunity to work with scientists and engineers in a cross-functional team with a strong focus on quality and innovation. You will be in at the start of the company’s software development journey with an opportunity to help shape the way things are done whilst coming up-to-speed with some of the latest technologies and techniques.
This is a fantastic opportunity for a science graduate who wishes to embark on a career in software engineering but who is not quite ready to leave behind their interest in science.
A minimum of two days per week in the office will be required, but as this is a graduate role there may be a need for you to be in the office more regularly, so you must be based within a commutable distance of Oxford.
