Job Description
Superpedestrian is seeking an Embedded Software Engineer to join the embedded software development team. The ideal candidate has strong skills writing embedded software on resource constrained, robotic-like systems. They should also have experience in low-level chip configuration, system time management, sensor sampling/conditioning, and inter-processor communications (CAN, SPI, I2C). Experience with telecom protocols such as Bluetooth, GPRS and LTE; or in motion control implementing motor software for brushless DC motors on a microprocessor is a strong plus.

What you'll do:

  • Help build our next generation technology by writing code (predominantly in C and python) for embedded targets that service motor control, battery management, and system communication and control.
  • Contribute your knowledge and wisdom to the team's development processes and software best practices.
  • Collaborate closely with the embedded hardware team to specify module and system requirements and design.
