Job Description 👨‍💻

As an embedded software engineer, your role will be to design, develop and maintain the embedded software used in the spacedrop™ satellite platform. To this end, you will be in direct collaboration with many subsystems suppliers and internal teams to coordinate, lead and be part of the effort to develop the software. As the first person dedicated to embedded software development, your reach will be large, and a high level of technical know-how, as well as organizational and interpersonal skills.

Preferred Experience 💁‍♀️

You are already an experienced professional with a significant experience in embedded software development. You must be experienced in programming on microcontroller, on a Linux platform and through RTOS. You have a good knowledge of standard communication protocols (CAN, RS422).

This position can lead to a managerial position of the future embedded software team, or to a technical expertise position. Thus, both profiles with only technical expertise or with some management experience will be reviewed.

In both cases, this role requires the following skills:

  • A very high degree of autonomy;
  • A deep technical understanding of embedded software, with the will to tackle development work;
  • You want to work in a rewarding, yet demanding environment with a state of mind oriented towards results and rapid delivery;
  • You have great communication skills, both writing- and speaking-wise;
  • You are proficient in English. Any other language is a plus;
