Salary: Up to £65,000

Location of Office: Fully Remote Working

The role: A new role has now been created for an Embedded Software Engineer to join our clients growing engineering team as they continue to design and develop bespoke solutions within the intelligent automation market. The products you will be developing will be improving the way we approach a variety of tasks with a focus on sustainability and lowering companies’ carbon footprints. Their office is based in the Newcastle area, but this role can be performed fully remotely and they already have engineers working from home fulltime.

In this role the successful embedded software engineer will be tasked with developing new software products to meet the specific needs of their customers. You will be expected to contribute throughout the full design life cycle working as part of small development team.

To be suitable for this role you will have recent industry experience in an embedded software development focussed role and your key skills set will include coding in modern C++ on RTOS (FreeRTOS desired), microcontroller programming and working with a host of communication protocols (CAN, I2C, UART, SPI etc). Whilst any experience with test driven development (TDD) unit testing or CI/CD pipelines would really make your CV stand out.

This role will best suit an embedded software engineer who is passionate about developing software solutions, coding embedded C++ whilst working to modern processes in a new product focussed environment. You will be keen to take on technical challenges and be comfortable managing your own time and workload.

Skills and experience required:

  • Embedded C++
  • RTOS development – FreeRTOS ideally
