Just Recruitment is recruiting for an experienced Software Engineer (UEFI BIOS) on behalf of a company based in Colchester, Essex.

The BIOS engineers are involved in many different activities, and in particular with the following:

  • Developing, enhancing and maintaining their UEFI BIOS on multiple platforms.
  • Designing and developing system management firmware and diagnostics software.
  • Working with hardware designers during design to specify the product, and again particularly during the prototyping stage to get the product working. This often involves the development of new special-purpose test software or other tools.
  • Backing up technical support engineers when problems arise in the field.

The Engineering teams work closely together across all the sites and across all disciplines, with a small number of engineers working on each project. Every software engineer is rapidly involved in many different projects, and they have responsibility for the entire BIOS package. The hardware and software platforms vary, but most of the devices used are complex and a good appreciation of the hardware is a prerequisite for this role.


  • Engineering graduate, with very good experience in the areas below:
  • UEFI BIOS development based on EDKII.
  • C or C++ programming, primarily for the Intel processor family
  • Programming hardware devices at register level
  • The ability to communicate effectively with others within the company at an Engineering level is an important additional attribute.


Very competitive salary package, with generous relocation allowance where appropriate. Company-supported private pension scheme. Non-contributory private health insurance scheme.
