Embedded Software Engineer (Autonomous Driving)

Our client is looking for a talented Embedded Software Engineer to join their exciting start-up team near Boston, who are radically accelerating the arrival of self-driving vehicles by tackling some of the most challenging problems that stand in the way of safe and reliable navigation.

We're searching for an experienced engineer to take an important role driving embedded software development for our radar system. You will be responsible to design, code and test embedded software to support real-time acquisition and processing of radar data. You will be working with other engineers, skilled in software development, FPGA firmware and hardware circuitry to design and specify how acquire, process and transport radar data. You will have a major impact on the development environment, coding structure and test strategies.

As we move from prototypes, to pilots and to early production, you will improve and validate the designs and implementation, moving from rapid development to functional safety compliance. You will work with other engineers to implement, document and validate the design. You will discuss, understand and implement needs driven by our safety partners into the design.
