Job Title/Reporting to

Firmware Engineer reporting to the CTO located in Centurion, Pretoria (Remote work possible)
 

Job Purpose

In this opportunity, you will be exposed to new and cutting edge, interesting projects. Our current tech stack runs on ARM Cortex M4 or similar, with ARM MBED OS. We have developed a cool architecture around this, so you will have to get into the nitty gritty of multithreading, all sorts of sensor integration and gadgets that are almost guaranteed not to be available in the run-of-the mill company. If you have worked with an RTOS, C++, and Altium/KiCAD (not required), you will love this opportunity. If you like bits/bytes/Hex, we will be interested. You will also work to prevent glitches in software and ensure everything runs smoothly updating technology and its hardware to work well with updates in the company’s back-end systems – which are also regarded as a tech frontrunner globally. You will work in a small team of experts.
