Would suit senior engineers to team leads

This is a superb role for an ambitious Senior C++ Engineer to contribute to embedded SoC product development within a small team. There is also an opportunity to step up to the position of Embedded Software Team Lead. You will be involved in the complete life cycle of products, working with software, firmware and hardware team members.

The technical challenges include high speed data handling similar to that required for streaming high definition video. The role includes involvement with Signal Processing algorithms and Control Systems.

  • Good understanding of C++ and an interest in the later features of the language
  • Strong embedded software development knowledge
  • Awareness of SoC technologies and software for resource constrained systems
  • Sufficient exposure to embedded Linux systems
  • Ideally you will also be able to write the software interfaces to hardware in C or assembler
