This leading consumer electronics company develops mobile-connected devices that are marketed world-wide. Their development team creates both the hardware and software components, and they are keen to find a firmware engineer with in-depth knowledge of mobile data protocols to join their team.

Joining a small team of exceptional embedded software engineers, you will work on improvements and new features for both current and future devices, helping take new concepts through to mass production. In particular, you will become the team’s go-to expert in cellular protocols.

As well as your knowledge of protocols such as LTE-M or NB-IoT, you will be an accomplished developer, with excellent skills in the C programming language, good familiarity with the Linux operating system, and real-time embedded operating systems. Knowledge of Bluetooth (BLE), as well as more general networking protocols would be useful.
