Software Engineer - Tonejet

  • Location
    Cambridge, United Kingdom


The artwork on a can of craft beer is often as appealing as the drink itself. It’s innovative, edgy, and completely unique - just like Tonejet’s beverage printing technology. Join us as a Software Engineer, and you’ll get to develop .NET (C#) software for machine control and measurement for our pioneering Cyclone digital printing systems.

Our printing technology was created from scratch. No one has done it quite like us before – so you’ll get to make a meaningful contribution to the product development. The sense of job satisfaction and achievement is tangible with each new machine delivery.

You’ll be joining us as we journey into the next stage of scaling up - creating new machines for customers in the UK, Canada and the USA. It’s interesting, innovative, and technically challenging work.


You’ll have the support of a strong and multi-disciplined team. Together, we’ll be working towards the goal of providing our customers with machines that will deliver mass customisation and ultra-short print runs with no label waste, pin-sharp print quality and low running costs.

You’ll get to focus on developing software that interacts with complex machinery, improving existing products or developing the next generation.

The challenges will be interesting, wide and varied. From the get-go, you’ll have an impact. Through a mixture of hands-on development with machines and systems, product improvement programmes, and ground-up design work; your contribution will see significant results.

On any given day, you might be working as part of a team to solve problems in complex electro-mechanical systems or tackling bug fixes and new feature developments. You’ll get to design and develop machine control software, deal with low-level hardware interfacing (PLCs, Sensors, embedded systems, TCP/IP networked devices), UX/UI development using WPF/XAML, and the development of test systems and software along with the supporting system tests and commissioning. If you have experience of PLC programming and image processing, you’ll get to apply your skills with Tonejet’s cutting-edge printing technology.

The MVVM design pattern and asynchronous programming in .Net will also be a key focus of this role as you’ll be helping to maintain and improve our codebase through improved unit testing and design.

And with every development, you’ll see the results in improved editions of existing and new printing machines.


The starting point at Tonejet is that we trust you. So there’s no probation period and no ‘newbie’ status. You’ll be a valued member of the team from day one.
