Software Development Infrastructure Engineer


Vicon is the world leader in Motion Capture, developing innovative, high-performance software and hardware products for the entertainment, engineering, and medical industries. Our systems are used in most blockbuster films and AAA games as well as in hospitals, virtual reality installations, and research fields ranging from sports science to robotics and drone development.


We are looking for an infrastructure engineer to join our Oxford team and help develop the systems that support our application, computer vision, systems, and embedded software teams. We predominantly develop in C++ and Python and manage our development machinery using a mix of in-house and third-party systems for build configuration, continuous integration, automated regression testing, issue tracking, data management, server and build agent monitoring, and hardware testing.

Technologies currently used within our development infrastructure include:

C++ (MSVC, Clang, GCC), Python, C#, Ansible, Groovy, CMake, Mercurial, Git, Jenkins, Jira, Confluence, Zabbix, HashiCorp Vault, Apache, and Windows and Linux scripting.

We primarily look for smart, motivated engineers that are keen to help us build robust, high-quality systems and work with interesting technology.

We have an informal and friendly company culture and you would be working as part of a team with other software engineers. Working from home is possible most of the time provided you are able to visit our Oxford offices as needed to perform tasks that cannot be conducted remotely and there is no expectation to be ‘on call’ outside of core office hours.


Candidates could come from a Programmer, DevOps, IT, or Back-End/Infrastructure background and should have experience automating software development processes and systems administration tasks.

Knowledge of the technologies listed above is not essential, but some experience working with C++ and Python would be very beneficial.

Exposure to cloud and machine learning technologies may also be useful but similarly are not requirements.
