Job Description

Our client is looking for a talented Embedded Software Developer to join their development team located in Cannock, Staffordshire.

This is a full-time role with flexible hours (office/WFH hybrid) within an exciting new start up which will give you the chance to engage in new product development, as well as maturing existing products.

A strong understanding of Linux operating systems, embedded software languages (C++, Python, etc) and experience with typical development processes and lifecycles.

You will be the first in-house embedded software developer in the team, which would naturally evolve into a lead developer position.

Key skills:

  • 2-3 years industry experience
  • Hands-on experience developing embedded software
  • Embedded software languages such as C, C++ or Python (they’re flexible)
  • Experience with both x86 and RISC based architecture
  • Linux, CentOS, Ubuntu (Server and Core), and similar OS experience
  • Developing automation scripts for production deployment
  • Communication protocols – I2C, USB, UART, Serial, Ethernet, etc
  • Version control management – Gitlab, Jira, CI/CD (where applicable)
  • Experience from prototype to commercial product

Desirable skills:

  • Ethernet networking and TCP/IP stack experience
  • Cyber Security knowledge (pentesting, Kali Linux, etc)
  • Basic front-end development experience for prototyping interfaces etc
  • Enjoys electronics tinkering (Raspberry Pi, Arduino, etc).

Ideal candidate

Our client is looking for talent. Whether you’re a junior looking to step up into an intermediate role, or a seasoned senior developer, they’re open to talk.

Salary range starts from £25K to £50K pa dependant on experience, with the opportunity to evolve into a senior position as progress within the team.

During quiet periods they encourage team members to engage in passion projects (which they’ll supplement the costs for).

Working hours are flexible – they’re not clock watchers, and are focused on results and progression, rather than making you work a full 9 to 5 job. They encourage a relaxed environment.

If this sounds like the opportunity for you, please apply ASAP.
