Full Time

Role Description

Sensmetry is seeking a technology expert with 5+ years of industrial experience for the role of Senior Embedded Software Engineer. This is a position primarily 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 client projects and internal product development. The candidate is expected to possess significant experience and knowledge of software development methods, preferably in the embedded domain, as well as to possess practical skills and toolchain knowledge, including building, debugging and testing tools. In addition, a general genuine interest in software engineering, software development, and autonomous systems is crucial for the candidate to continue to deepen the knowledge and expand his/her skillset in these areas while at Sensmetry. Lastly, the candidate is expected to help on technical writing & communication, information & project organisation 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 specialise more in one particular area of knowledge as the company continues to grow, develop and diversify.
