Embedded C Engineer (26150)

Cambridge - north
to £65k DoE

Apply your embedded C skills to help the environment

This successful scientific company designs environmental monitoring instrumentation and seeks an Embedded Software Engineer to join their R&D team working on new products.

As a senior software developer, you will have good experience developing embedded systems. This will be combined with a solid understanding of interfacing to hardware and the challenges met with analogue instruments. Fundamentals will be backed up by a top engineering degree from a well-respected university. In your career so far, you will have gained experience in most of the following:

  • Excellent knowledge of C
  • Previous experience in the design of reliable, failure tolerant systems
  • Good working knowledge of distributed systems
  • Exposure to various embedded OS
  • Knowledge of interfacing directly with hardware

A bonus would be experience in:

  • C++
  • Using Yocto to develop embedded Linux systems
  • Exposure to PIC processors up to ARM devices
  • Use of PID control loops

You will join a team of friendly, dedicated developers working in a welcoming office environment but also step into the lab and work close to the hardware. This is an excellent opportunity to join a company who invest in the future and bring a new vision for their next generation of products.

You will also need full existing permission to live and work in the UK without time limit, restriction or sponsorship.
