Looking for an experienced embedded RTOS software engineer to port FreeRTOS and Zephyr OS to ARM Cortex based SoCs from scratch. In this context, you would have most likely worked for a chip vendor previously.

You will need to be able to demonstrate a very good knowledge of the internal workings of real-time operating systems and an ability to architect heavily resourced constrained ARM cores.

The applications include IoT devices and therefore knowledge of BLE, Zigbee or similar protocols, as well as audio streaming is a plus but not necessary.

Some liaising with and mentoring of software developers is involved.

Tasks include:

* Determining systems' architecture and evaluating software requirements.
* Architectural planning.
* Detailed software design, coding, software reviews, and unit testing.
* Integration of system software.
* Quality control.

Skills required:

* 10 years postgrad experience working on embedded systems in C and C++.
* Very strong understanding of RTOS real-time operating systems.

* In particular, communication between the OS and target HW, including memory, handle interrupts, semaphores, timers, power management, bus abstraction etc.

* Strong know-how in designing systems that are heavily resource constrained, in particular ARM Cortex based systems.

Please contact me with a copy of your CV. A full tasks description available to qualified applicants.
