Associate Embedded Software Engineer
Now that your college days are over, you’re probably beginning to look for a place to land. Although it’s time to buckle down and join the “real world,” the options may not be as exciting as you’d hoped. So many engineering jobs want you to be a small cog in a big machine. They need people to crunch numbers, write reports, make incremental improvements. But you’re not interested in being pigeonholed or working on things that just aren’t that interesting. Hey, that group project you worked on was a lot of fun. It was exciting to be part of a team, to build something real. Or maybe you enjoyed messing around with that Arduino board or making widgets on the shop’s 3D printer or wiring up the telemetry on the school solar car. Why can’t someone just pay you to do more of that? We invite you to take a peek inside the door at Mindtribe.
A DAY IN THE LIFE
Client programs are similar in many ways to extended project classes – we work in close-knit teams of typically 2 – 5 engineers to bring something new into the world. Day-to-day, here are some examples of things that make our firmware engineers happy:
- Programming on 5 different microcontrollers in as many weeks.
- Getting an LED to blink juuuust right.
- Figuring out the magic init sequence to harness an OLED display that you harvested from a smartphone.
- Convincing embedded Linux to boot on a board that a co-worker designed from scratch. Also, you changed the MotD to hilarious ASCII art.
- Teaching a dev board to speak Bluetooth so it can introduce itself to an iPad.
As a full-time engineer, you’d be tackling tasks like these, personally owning anything you’re capable of taking on and working in tandem with senior engineers for more complex tasks.
CULTURE AND ENVIRONMENT
Mindtribe is a small company under Accenture. Your contributions will have immediate, visible impacts not just on projects, but also on the success of the entire organization. Working at Mindtribe is being immersed in a constant stream of different projects, industries, and technologies; learning is unavoidable. As a result, not only do we stay current in our own fields, we also have ME’s developing iOS apps, EE’s driving SolidWorks, and FW engineers laying out PCB’s. The only pigeonholes around here are the nooks by the fire escape where the pigeons live. We’re located in the heart of downtown San Francisco, convenient to public transit and at an epicenter of a flourishing technology industry. Our team enjoys working together, and we greatly value maintaining an awesome company environment. We look for people who are bright, enthusiastic, and fun! ‘Tribers regularly spend time together outside the office, whether that’s doing happy hour at a local watering hole or enjoying the rocking chairs at the Exploratorium.
