My client require an all-round Embedded Software/Firmware Engineer to play a key role in the development of the next generation of their product line.

Main Purpose of Job:

The successful candidate will be responsible for the design, development and implementation of software/firmware solutions for a new product range as well as the maintenance of existing products as necessary.

Candidate Requirements

The successful candidate will ideally possess a degree in a relative discipline and have had at least 5 years industrial experience post qualification.

Applicants will have experience of generating clear, well documented, structured and reliable code on a variety of processors and microcontrollers. Fluent C is a pre-requisite. RTOS experience and a thorough understanding of the constraints and requirements of complex real time systems is essential, as is a working knowledge of Version Control Systems, especially Subversion. Candidates must be able to implement solutions within a clearly defined structure and produce portable modular code. Equally they should be happy to assist in all stages of code design and adopt a common sense approach to implementation. They should have a 'Can do' attitude and a desire to produce high quality product and should be as happy debugging with an oscilloscope as a GUI.

An understanding of force and pressure measurement would be advantageous as would experience with precision A/D conversion. Any exposure to DSP implementation would also be beneficial.

Essential Skills & Experience
  • C
  • RTOS (preferably Freescale MQX)
  • VCS (SVN/CVS)
  • Serial Communications, preferably CAN Bus
  • A variety of debug and development environments

Desirable Experience
  • Freescale Power PC
  • Freescale HCS12
  • CodeWarrior
  • Microchip PIC
  • CAN/CANOpen
  • SAE-J1939
  • Assembler languages
  • C++/C#
  • A/D conversion and Signal Processing
  • Automotive product qualification
