This is a superb role for an ambitious Senior Firmware Engineer to contribute to both embedded software and FPGA developments.

Would you relish the opportunity to join a small, successful and fast-growing product company which has spun out of a more established and well-respected company in the Cambridgeshire area? The technical challenges include:

  • Data handling at speeds higher than those required for streaming high definition video
  • Using up to date serial communications like Ethernet, USB, and PCIe
  • Creating high-speed signal and image processing algorithms

This role will suit a bright engineer with an excellent technical degree from a world-leading university and a significant level of commercial experience including:

  • Strong knowledge of VHDL / Verilog / SystemVerilog / Quartus / Qsys / NIOS
  • Solid experience in C and C++ embedded systems
  • Significant experience debugging and validating embedded solutions
  • Good understanding of a variety of version control and bug-reporting systems
  • Awareness of latest FPGA technologies including SoC and high speed digital communications features
  • Familiarity with designing Control Systems, Signal Processing algorithms and Datapath Control

In addition to a competitive salary, the role offers an attractive benefits package. Excellent prospects await the right candidate in a permanent role, with potential to progress to design-architect level roles.
