AdaCore is looking for a software engineer to work out of the UK office in Bristol on the Ada/SPARK development tools and libraries.

Everything we do at AdaCore is centered around helping developers build safe, secure and reliable software. For over 20 years, we've worked with global leaders across avionics, aerospace and defense industries, building tools and providing services that ease the complex and difficult process of developing high-integrity software. As the need for truly secure and reliable applications expands into industries such as automotive, medical, energy, and IOT, we’re advancing our time-tested technologies to bring expertise and services to help a whole new generation of developers.

Our 120 experts worldwide in the US (New York, Lexington), France (Paris, Toulouse, Grenoble and Vannes), the UK and Estonia all play a role in developing bleeding edge technologies to meet the highest grade of open-source software development.

Joining AdaCore is about joining a culture of innovation, openness, collaboration and dependability, which defines how we work together, with our customers and partners.

Mission & Responsibilities:

You will join the AdaCore engineering team, specifically working on the language library for code intelligence for Ada/SPARK, and developing tools and libraries.

You will be working with a team of language and compiler experts, striving to improve the code intelligence capabilities available to the clients of AdaCore.

You will be using the Libadalang language front-end for Ada & SPARK, which is a full code analyzer for Ada & SPARK, and participating in its development.

You will be involved with all aspects of software development and will be provided autonomy and responsibilities that will allow for significant growth opportunity.

Some possible tasks might include:

  • Working on refactoring technology for Ada & SPARK.
  • Working on checkers/linters/fuzzers for Ada & SPARK.
  • Improving the quality of the Libadalang language analyzer.


  • Knowledge of and experience in working on one high-level programming language (C++, Ada, Java, etc);

  • Knowledge - or very strong interest - in the domain of compilation/programming language analysis. Demonstrable experience, even in the form of university projects will be a big plus.

  • Good communication skills, and ability to self organize.

Beyond the job:

We are looking for engineers who want their work to have a direct impact on improving the reliability, safety and security of the software that modern society has grown increasingly dependent on in an international environment. Our sales and marketing team is staffed with multi-talented, tenacious and creative individuals; and our HR team is committed to ensuring your tenure with AdaCore is a positive one. Our cultural diversity is one of our strengths, enabling us to operate successfully on an international scale and we celebrate it during our social events (summer meetings, activity weekends, Christmas dinner etc). 

We encourage our employees to explore their curiosity by providing them ongoing and lifelong training from their first day in AdaCore with a strong onboarding plan. As we know that juggling work and life is challenging, we offer flexibility to accommodate personal needs and work commitments.  

AdaCore offers competitive compensation, benefits and thoughtful perks. We go beyond industry standards to help keep our employees comfortable and satisfied both on and off the job, no matter where they are based.
