Hey there! This is just one of many top career opportunities ECM can suggest — if this job isn't right for you, let us do the hard work! Tell us what you're looking for and we'll start searching for you. We promise to treat your CV as strictly confidential.

Real-world robotics, startup, embedded software, control systems, imaging

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.
