We’re working with embedded hardware and software. If you consider working with us, you’d probably like to get a feeling of what it’s like, what we offer, and what to expect from us.
Let’s go over that in points.
First of all: Bleeding edge tech. We work with ARMs, RISC-V and FPGAs from Microchip and NXP. We’re partnered with both of these companies.
For you, that means you’ll get real up close and intimate with bleeding edge SoCs for industrial applications, including prototype samples of upcoming silicon – from small super secure MCUs, to large beefy and powerful Layerscapes and PolarFires. By joining us, you’ll get to work with these. You’ll get access to their documentation, our existing IP, and a team of people that have been working with these for a while now.
If you’re a hardware engineer, you’ll work with implementing these SoCs into PCB designs.
If you’re a software engineer, you’ll write software for these - everything from bootloaders, bare metal, to device drivers and kernel modifications. We use Linux and FreeBSD.
Second of all: You’ll get lots of hard-to-get experience that requires peer knowledge and expensive equipment.
As a hardware engineer, you’ll get to design the high speed stuff. RAM, PCI Express, including signal splitting and transparent bridging, HSIO for FPGAs, high speed networking hardware (SFP+), flash memory of all sorts… we do all of these in-house. We’ve got a well equipped lab that lets you work on these (and your personal projects after hours), and you’ll be able to soak in a lot of knowledge from our existing teams. We manufacture locally, so you’ll get to grab those boards straight from the pick and placer, and you’ll actually be able to talk with the guys that ran your design through the machines. If that’s your thing. Choice is up to you.
If you’re a software engineer, you’ll get to work as in-depth as you like. We make software that runs software. That means we deal with kernels, drivers, bootloaders (the RISC-V based PolarFires are special, you probably haven’t seen that one), bare-metal software, but also high-level OS stuff, like hardware acceleration of network traffic processing. All the way up to UI and UX. If that’s your thing. Choice is up to you.
Third of all: Services for big international corporations.
Companies that put their logo on a lot of very important hardware that makes our civilization tick. Not only electronics hardware, but also hardware that weighs a bit and can move around. We can’t really talk about the details (yet), but you’ll get to work with big stuff. The big stuff. One of the biggest there is. If that’s your thing. Choice is up to you.
Fourth of all, we believe that work should be entertaining.
Someone has to do the boring stuff, and unfortunately – sometimes, that’s us. But most of the time, the stuff we do is really captivating, and we’re striving to keep it that way. This drives our selection of work, the way we handle it, and the way we load-balance work across teams.
And finally, there’s the paycheck.
As you’ve probably seen above, we show our salaries publicly, and they’re amongst the highest out there. Don’t want to work for a startup? That’s great, cause we’re not one! We’re self-funded and pretty well established on the market by now. Atmosphere in the office is chill and informal with a reasonably flattened hierarchy, and if you want to work remotely – and your position allows for that – it’s not an issue with us. If you need to work at the office – it’s flexible hours. We care for the work done, not how or when you do it. Our founders are highly technical, and we expect the same from our management. You’ll work with people who understand your work well, and are capable of participating in it.
