Full Time

Role Description

Sensmetry is seeking a capable individual for the entry level role of Embedded Software Engineer.  This is a position focussed on technical aspects of embedded software development for both for safety and mission-critical cyber-physical systems. The main domains of application include aerospace and land vehicles.

The candidate will contribute their embedded software development skills to a range of R&D projects at Sensmetry, for both external consulting projects and internal product development. The candidate is expected to possess some knowledge of embedded systems development, as well as to possess some practical skills and toolchain knowledge, including embedded software development and debugging tools. In addition, a general genuine interest in embedded software and systems engineering, mathematical modelling, and autonomous systems is crucial for the candidate to continue to deepen the knowledge and expand their skillset in these areas while at Sensmetry. Lastly, the candidate is expected to help on technical writing & communication tasks.

Though the position is multi-disciplinary, requiring appropriate experience and flexibility on behalf of the candidate, it is understood that the candidate might wish to narrow focus and specialize more in one particular area of knowledge as the company continues to grow, develop and diversify.
