An international hardware and software company, whose development team is based in Cambridge, are seeking a Lead Firmware Developer to help them push the boundaries of screen technology.

Their technology runs on a variety of platforms and the Lead Firmware Developer will rely on their excellent knowledge and experience of embedded C++, object-oriented design and SoC development to ensure the success of the products. The embedded C++ will be executed on top level IC simulators, FPGA and ASIC. Familiarity with high speed data handling (USB, ETH, DDR) and video and audio processing at high pixel rates will undoubtedly be required.

The Lead Firmware Developer will be very comfortable with unit testing and adapting existing production code to a Linux-based GCC test environment. They will be working with IC designers and Verification Engineers as well as other Firmware Developers involved with other projects and will have good communication skills and will be able to manage their time effectively.
