Job Description

Come join us in our new office @ Boston Landing and help build our next big thing – a new business to help millions of people live healthier and more engaged lives. You’ll join a team of talented engineers developing a family of new Wellness products that will improve people’s lives in ways they didn’t imagine possible.

At Bose, we’ve spent more than 50 years finding new ways to bring quality audio products to people—in their homes, in automobiles, in airplanes, and just about anywhere else that there is a possibility to enjoy music. Our legendary Wave® music system, SoundLink® Mini Bluetooth speaker, SoundTouch® Wi-Fi speakers, and QuietComfort® acoustic noise cancelling headphones may ring a bell with you. Bose relies on exceptional people to create and deliver those products to our customers.

We are stretching our vision and obsessive approach to providing customer benefit by improving people’s lives in fundamentally new ways beyond audio entertainment. This new business will leverage new-to-the-world technologies, along with academic and corporate partnerships, and translate them into compelling consumer experiences that make a difference– as we’ve done with our new Noise-masking SleepbudsTM and HearphonesTM. We are working on additional experiences and products that we believe will resonate just as strongly with consumers. Our group has the bold attitude and energy of a start-up with the financial backing and market leadership of a world-class brand.

The Embedded Firmware Engineer will join a talented team that is driven to efficiently deliver high-quality code while striving to make us better at what we do, and how we do it, every day.
