Software Engineer, Embedded Systems & Firmware

San Francisco
Neuralink is developing ultra high bandwidth brain-machine interfaces to connect humans and computers. We’re building a team of multidisciplinary experts passionate about making a world changing impact.

About the role:

Our robotics integrate actuated devices with microelectromechanical systems as well as novel surgical procedures. These applications place strong emphasis on high-precision, high-repeatability mechanical motion, as well as high reliability and fail-safe design.  Projects you might work on include writing the code that connects biomedical devices with high level software interfaces, writing low-level robotics control software to drive sophisticated novel neurosurgical robotics, and many other possibilities.

About you:

    • You find large challenges exciting and enjoy discovering and defining problems as much as solving them.
    • You deliver. You may enjoy thoughtful conversations about problems and perfecting design, but in the end you know that what matters is delivering reliable manufacturable solutions.
    • You are a cross disciplinary team member. You are excited to work with and learn from neuroscientists and nanotechnologists.

Key qualifications:

    • Bachelor's degree in engineering or equivalent practical experience.
    • 2+ years of experience designing electronic boards.
    • 2+ years of experience with electrical system level engineering.
    • Programming experience on Linux and C/C++.

Preferred qualifications:

    • Experience designing, manufacturing, and testing reliable electronic systems.
    • Experience with micro-controllers.
    • Experience with hardware/software integration.
    • Experience setting up embedded toolchains, building, and debugging environments.
    • Experience with Wi-Fi, BLE, USB, TCP/IP stacks in an embedded environment.

What we offer:

    • An opportunity to change the world and work with some of the smartest and the most talented experts from different fields.
    • Growth Potential. We rapidly advance team members who have an outsized impact.
