Role Description
We are looking for an experienced Embedded Software Engineer to develop the firmware that will monitor and control our novel multi-day storage battery modules. This individual is expected to bring deep experience in embedded software development and low-level programming. Our battery management systems run on ARM class hardware.
Collaboration with other engineers on the Systems team will be a standard part of the workflow, as this role resides at the exciting cross-section of power conversion, battery performance, and control systems.

What You'll Do:

    • Develop microcontroller firmware for embedded system, sensors, and power flow control circuitry as part of a complete BMS
    • Collaborate with hardware and controls engineers to architect the control topology, peripheral section, HSI, sensor properties, and algorithms
    • Derive software specifications based on product requirements
    • Establish a BMS control software topology that includes security, functional safety, memory protection, and performance
    • Define software development, debugging, validation, release, and quality processes
    • Synthesize outputs from battery test data and models to implement algorithms for system performance and lifetime
    • Work with an interdisciplinary group of engineers on the Systems Team to define concepts, downselect designs, and optimize a new groundbreaking technology

What You'll Bring:

    • Excitement and willingness to learn as a member of a rapidly growing multi-disciplinary engineering team
    • Minimum 5+ years of experience in software development for embedded systems; direct experience working on BMS firmware is a plus
    • Extensive experience using C/C++ for embedded systems in real-time control applications
    • Familiarity with software compliance standards such as MISRA, ISO 26262, CMMI, ASPICE, or UL 1998
    • Deep knowledge of device control and communication protocols such as Modbus, CANbus, and UART
    • Experience with defining and or assessing software reliability, failure modes, and fault reactions
    • Ability to work on embedded controller boards and RTOS

The salary range for this role is $164,410-$202,785. The range listed is what we reasonably expect to pay for this role at the time of this posting.
