Our global client is designing and selling biometric solutions to multi-billion-dollar markets including smart cards, mobiles and the Internet of Things. The company is in the early phase of commercialization preparing for volume deliveries and is also developing next-generation products.
Tasks and responsibilities:
Design and development of low-level drivers and real-time applications for low-resource microcontrollers
Identify root cause and solve problems through careful analysis, modeling and simulations.
Undertake open-ended design and investigation activities based on internal and external customer input
Work closely with System Engineering teams to perform technical analysis across multiple domains such as system-level partitioning, use-case definition, firmware subsystem architecture, sensor modeling and performance estimation, system power consumption for various use cases, power management and low-power design.
Strong programming skills in C (GNU toolchain) and Assembly, and a high-level language like Matlab or Python
Expert level code optimization on bare-metal or nano-kernel tiny footprint systems
Strong profiling skills (power and clock domains), power management (analog and digital)
Expert level debugging using software (gdb) and hardware (oscilloscopes, logic analyzers)
Bare-metal and/or nanokernel RTOS programming
Strong multithreading: thread synchronization, shared memory protection, events/signals
Embedded low power systems using dedicated microcontrollers
SPI, I2C and USB communication interfaces, and messaging
Cortex-M0/M3/M4 micr0o controllers
Nice to have:
Mix of hardware, software and firmwareexperience highly desirable
Boot ROM or option ROM implementation
FPGAexperience, ASIC bring up
Image processing, and image processing optimization (non-GPU)
Ph.D., MS or BS degree in EE, CS or BS with specialization in embedded programming or related subjects
Self-driven and able to deliver
Must be passionate about collaboration, with a strong desire to learn from others
Creative, pragmatic and easy to work with; service-minded
Interested and willing to handle a diverse portfolio of projects and assignments
Expert communication skills (verbal and written), using English as the working language
Must be willing to document and test what is implemented
Structured and documented work methods
Occasional domestic and international travel, depending on projects
Our client will not sponsor any type of foreign visa candidates..
