Embedded Software Engineer (27034)

Cambridge, hybrid working
to £50k DoE plus benefits

Junior to experienced, embedded Linux C++, relaxed growing team

If you’re looking for the next step in your embedded Linux C++ software engineering career, why not consider a role with flexible hours, up to 4 days working from home per week, a competitive salary and a range of benefits including private healthcare, matched pension contributions, bonuses, and an option on extra holiday.

The application area is green tech for power electronics. Much of the technology is Linux-based, with a variety of toolchains and an openness to embrace change and developers’ views. Grow your skillset to potentially encompass FPGA development, power electronics and/or kernel code.

The requirements:

  • A good degree in a relevant discipline or equivalent experience.
  • Demonstrable skills writing C++ embedded software, from bare metal to building out more complex systems, including work on Linux and ideally embedded Linux.
  • Familiarity with commercial-grade software engineering processes and practice, source control and CI, team working skills, the ability to work independently without guidance, yet knowing when to seek advice from colleagues.

Ideally also one or more of: kernel/driver code, C, hardware-intensive algorithms, VHDL / Verilog for FPGA development, driving industrial hardware, control systems, power electronics, solar or clean energy.
