Job Description

Our clients' products are designed and developed in-house and use leading-edge microprocessors and peripheral components. These products are used in many different markets around the world.

The Engineering group operates in a small company environment, with facilities in the UK and the USA. The constant requirement for new, better, and more complex products means that the company requires an additional Firmware Engineer, based in Theale or Colchester

Every engineer is rapidly involved in many different projects, and firmware engineers have responsibility for the entire product life cycle. The hardware and software platforms vary, but most of the devices used are complex and a good appreciation of the hardware is a pre-requisite for this role.

*Developing, enhancing, and maintaining our UEFI BIOS and IPMI firmware on multiple platforms.
*Developing, enhancing, and maintaining factory test, self-test and other diagnostic programs.
*Working with our hardware designers during design to specify the product, and again particularly during the prototyping stage to get the product working. This often involves the development of new special-purpose test software or other tools.
*Backing up our technical support engineers when problems arise in the field.
*Interfacing directly with our manufacturing Test team for queries arising in our in-house production test area.

You will have the following experience.

*Proficient in Embedded C programming for x86, PowerPC or high-performance ARM processors.
*Practical experience programming a variety of hardware devices at register level.
*A detailed understanding of ICC and SPI interfaces.
*Excellent diagnostic skills.
*Previous experience with developing UEFI firmware or EFI shell applications would be desirable.
