Ajax Systems is a full-cycle company working from idea generation and R&D to mass production and sales. We do everything: we produce physical devices (the system includes many different sensors and hubs), write firmware for them, develop the server part and release mobile applications. The whole team is in one office in Kyiv, all technical and product decisions are made locally.

Not so long ago we released a new version of our Hub OS and named it Malevich, now we are looking for Embedded Engineers who are ready to make our system better with us. For us never could be enough: there are still a lot of new functionality, sensors, features to make our system even cooler.

We are looking for a person who is experienced in embedded software development and already challenged by how FW delivery processes aren’t perfect in the embedded world. The role of the Lead Embedded Platform Engineer is to build and continuously improve tools and processes for delivering firmware from developers through various verifications to end users.

Required skills:

    • Leading engineering teams;
    • Strong skills in various build systems;
    • Excellent knowledge of C programming language;
    • Experience in debugging and validating complex embedded systems and protocol stack;
    • Good hands-on experience of software engineering fundamentals such as testing, pull requests and code reviews, source control, work item/issue tracking;
