You will be the 2nd Embedded Software Engineer in the company, joining a project at the early stages of prototype development, with the ambition to manufacture in 2024.
You will be developing firmware for a power supply that takes mains AC power and converts it into high frequency AC. This then distributes the energy over current.
This game changing power supply design will be more efficient, intrinsically safer, and more portable than anything currently available on the market. The power supply can be used in adverse weather conditions e.g. heavy rain without any safety issues to be worried about.
