The Role:

As embedded software / firmware engineer, you will be front and center in defining and implementing our life science instrumentation platform solution. You will be joining a highly talented team of engineers and designers and be challenged to build lasting, scalable solutions for bioanalytical workflow validation, customer application pilots, and field product implementations. You will be involved in the entire life cycle of product development and will ensure that the development processes and design standards are followed to enable a robust and user-friendly integration and deployment of instrument embedded software and cloud backend services to deliver bioassay results for customer specific applications.

Your responsibilities:

    • Design and deliver robust, scalable, and secure distributed systems software (device, edge, cloud).
    • Work with product managers, technical/engineering leads, architect, and other developers (including subcontractors) to build and launch our platform, SDK, and custom assay solutions
    • Manage full-stack IoT solution with embedded software for single board computers, edge device networking, distributed software architecture, and cloud-like deployment and management.
    • Share responsibility for customer experience / troubleshooting system level problems and debug implementation
    • Collaborate with engineering team on circuit design/solution architecture and develop embedded software and edge device networking on selected hardware platforms
    • Support the optimization and deployment of end-to-end data acquisition workflows, including customer facing instrument UI/UX and visualization tools.
    • Preparation and creation of technical documentation.

Your expertise and qualifications:

    • Minimum qualifications:
