The successful candidate must excel in a high-energy small team environment, be able to drive to solutions from rough requirements, and have a commitment to high product quality. A strong sense of shared responsibility and shared reward is required.

Roles and Responsibilities:

  • Work on a cross functional team to develop technical specifications and evaluate design tradeoffs - specifically in platform/infrastructure software
  • Design and development of productfocused, rock-solid, C and C++ software in a heterogeneous, multi-processor SoC/FPGA/real-time-embedded environment
  • Develop software for embedded Linux/QNX devices:
    • Customize and productize embedded operating system distributions
    • Create drivers that interface with custom FPGA devices
    • Design and implement multi-threaded, distributed system C++ applications
  • Contribute broadly to many areas of software development, including but not limited to:
    • Extension of current frameworks to new processors and operating systems
    • Development of research prototypes used to evaluate new product concepts
    • Distributed communication subsystem development
  • Work with electrical engineers to bring up new, custom hardware
  • Clinical study support, and participation in product demonstrations, as requested
  • Contribute through design, V&V and transfer to manufacturing activities

Skill/Job Requirements:
  • Minimum Bachelors + 2yr of embedded systems product development experience or Master's degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering or Electrical Engineering.
  • Passionate about developing crossplatform, object-oriented C++ code (11 and higher)
  • Experience with Python3 and bash scripts.
  • Strong ability to isolate and debug embedded hardware and software problems
  • A desire to deliver a quality and innovative product that improves many people's lives
  • Willingness to work in Linux and Windows environments - whatever it takes
  • Strong intuition for, and interest in, designing systems for testability and scalability
  • Excellent communication skills

Additional Pluses:
  • Experience developing for embedded Linux devices
  • Experience with additional embedded operating systems, such as QNX
  • Experience working on productfocused designs in a team environment
  • Linux and Windows development experience
  • Experience with automation CI/CD, unit testing.
  • Understanding of commonly used messaging and RPC frameworks and their associated tradeoffs for use in distributed embedded systems
  • Demonstrated experience in and comfort with all phases of the product development lifecycle including design, implementation, debug, verification, validation, and transfer to manufacturing
  • Experience designing software products in an FDA or other regulated industry or for mission critical applications; comfortable with concepts of design input, design output, traceability, risk analysis, and mitigations

Due to the nature of our business and the role, please note that Intuitive and/or your customer(s) may require that you show current proof of vaccination against certain diseases including COVID-19. Details can vary by role.
