Engineering improved connectivity for innovative consumer products

This company is a leader in the entertainment technology sector, with a range of highly successful products on the market. With continued investment in new innovations, they are now seeking a talented Firmware Engineer to join their Cambridge R&D team.

Connectivity is a key attribute of their products, and you will need broad expertise in wireless communications and networking protocols in addition to excellent skills in embedded software development. You would be developing drivers for Linux to control Wi-Fi functionality, and optimise it so that the hardware performs with maximum speed and reliability.

You will need:

  • A demonstrable understanding of a range of common networking protocols – ideally, this should also include wireless protocols and their security, e.g. (WEP, WPA-PSK, WPA-EAP).
  • Linux operating system expertise, including kernel and user space, and the use of Linux for embedded applications.
  • Full existing right to work in the UK without time limit, restrictions, or sponsorship.

In return a highly competitive salary, comprehensive benefits and equity are on offer for the successful candidate. The company culture is friendly and supportive with a high degree of ownership over your work and where your ideas will be listened to.
