Embedded Software Engineer (24602)
This well-funded startup with founders from top companies is working on next-generation real world robotic systems for use in the UK and abroad. These rugged, precision semi-autonomous robots will be helping out specialist industry, out in the countryside, not on the factory floor.
They’re looking for a skilled firmware engineer to work on their ARM, RTOS microcontroller-based systems. These interface with 3D imaging hardware and control systems, including drive systems and sophisticated robot arms. They also communicate via onboard networking with a high performance non-real-time system which handles intensive computations via specialist hardware.
You will have a top degree in computing, electronics or a related subject, and strong A-level grades, and in addition you will have experience with:
- C (99 or C11 accepted) and C++ (11, 14 or 17) for real-world embedded systems in commercial companies
- Modern microcontrollers, ideally but not necessarily STM32 ARM Cortex (various models)
- Real-time operating systems and/or embedded Linux
Naturally you will be accustomed to developing for resource constrained environments, making use of cycle timing, interrupts, memory-mapped I/O and other such common techniques.
Specific experience in embedded imaging software, robotics, control systems and safety-critical systems is advantageous.
The company also offers flexible working in addition to a generous salary and benefits; 5 day week equivalent hours are expected, and candidates will need to be locally based and able to travel to the office as required for meetings and as a matter of course most days.
