  • 3+ years experience writing battery management software, specifically for Li-ion or Li-po batteries
  • Expert programming skills in C
  • Experience with scripting languages (python, bash)
  • Experience in embedded robotics or motion control applications
  • Expert in implementing low-level chip functionality and drivers (CAN, I2C, SPI, USB, bootloaders) for embedded systems
  • Experience working in a team-based agile/Scrum process
  • Working knowledge of common workflow management tools, e.g. revision control, bug tracking, documentation platforms
  • Ability to write PC-based tools and applications for the development, debugging, and testing of embedded systems

Additional useful skills:
