Specific Roles

Why we’re the
right partner

Not only do we place customer satisfaction and candidate enjoyment at the heart of what we do, but we’re also leading experts in electronics and embedded software recruitment, giving us the insight we need to ensure we always match the right candidates with the right role and employer.

For example, some of the typical roles we work on require engineers to program in C, C++ or Assembler. Aside from having the relevant embedded programming language experience, our embedded engineer jobs usually require Bare Metal, RTOS, Linux or Windows experience.

We have also worked with embedded software engineers who have experience on a wide range of different RTOS, such as ThreadX, FreeRTOS and VxWorks, programming through the full software stack.

Whether it is kernel/device driver development, middleware or application development, we have the experience to cover any embedded software requirement. Our previous clients have ranged from start-up businesses to global blue-chip organisations, so we understand how to find candidates with the right values and motivations to fit your business.

Whilst our specialism is in electronics and embedded systems engineering, we place candidates in a range of industries. This has included safety-critical development projects, medical device projects working to IEC 62304, IEC 61508 jobs, automotive to MISRA, aerospace to DO-178B, and 61508 for the energy industry
