  • Grow into taking responsibility for larger and more complex systems over time


  • Have experience developing bare-metal firmware on ARM Cortex or equivalent microcontrollers in C
  • Have experience with developing for embedded Linux systems (Yocto or equivalent) in areas such as kernel device drivers, networking, and/or low-level hardware interfacing
  • Have a solid understanding of electronics fundamentals and hardware debugging
  • Can share examples of engineering projects (work or personal) that you have been responsible for from start to finish and have shipped in quantity greater than one

Bonus Skills:
