Embedded C on distributed Linux systems

An award winning Cambridge electronics company is seeking a top Embedded Developer to join as a senior engineer within their experienced team, working on real-time embedded Linux in C.

You will have:

  • A good degree in a relevant technical subject from a top university
  • Exposure to developing in a Linux build environment
  • Significant skills with embedded C
  • A demonstrable understanding of real-time software, concurrency, and C code interacting directly with hardware
  • Good fundamentals regarding techniques for low level optimisation on resource-constrained systems

You will be a problem solver, a good interactive communicator and a team player. You will be familiar with the full software development lifecycle and delivery in parallel with hardware, including platform bring-up and low-level debugging.

Any experience you have of a real time OS, IP protocols to the TCP/UDP stack level would be beneficial, but above all it will be your embedded C experience that will impress.

You will join a team of friendly, dedicated developers working in an extremely modern, welcoming work environment. Your contribution and thoughts on processes and approaches will be highly valued. The members of the team have a range of backgrounds, so this is also an opportunity to develop new skills outside your area of speciality.
