Embedded Software Engineer
CONTRACT LENGTH: 6 months initially
RATE: £40 - £50 per hour
You will be working on the development of a low powered embedded software device that is at concept stage.
You will have requirements and a specification to work to (which has been provided by the clients end customer) but you and the R&D team will have opportunity to shape the product development (from design through to manufacture).
For this role you should be a confident Embedded C Software developer who has experience working throughout the software lifecycle. You should be confident developing in Embedded C on RTOS or Bare Metal. MISRA or other Safety Coding standard experience would be desirable as this device will be suitable to some safety regulated markets.
Experience developing embedded software for low power or resource constrained devices would be highly desirable. It would also be useful if you have developed products that are high volume produced but have cost constraints (this is not essential however).
You will be working in a multi-disciplined R&D team working with Software Engineers, Electronic Engineers, Mechanical Engineers and Test Engineers.
Aside from having the required technical skills you should be someone who is comfortable working in a fast moving (commercial like) environment. What you are working on is exciting, but also a large amount of investment is being made and there is a need to get the product into the market as soon as possible.
- Real Time Embedded C
- RTOS or Bare Metal development
- Microcontroller/ Microprocessor experience (ARM Cortex desirable)
- Serial Communication protocol experience (I2C, Ethernet, USB etc),
- Low power Device experience
- MISRA or Safety Coding experience
