The Senior Embedded Software Engineer for Airborne Software will apply their deep knowledge of RTCA DO-178C, best practices for real-time safety-critical embedded software development, technical leadership experience, and embedded C mastery to directly contribute to and lead a small team to specify, architect, design, implement and integrate the embedded software for BETA’s airborne systems. The ideal candidate will have extensive knowledge of embedded software development, from bare-metal board bring-up and microcontroller timing and execution characteristics to comprehensive software specification and design methods and techniques. The senior embedded software engineer is responsible for developing robust and reliable software to achieve the highest level of safety-criticality in the industry.
How you will contribute to revolutionizing electric aviation:
Analyze system requirements allocated to software for correctness, feasibility, and appropriateness from an embedded software perspective; propose changes and additional to system requirements to fulfill all airborne software needs
Develop software high-level requirements to specify the functionality and characteristics of airborne software
Architect and design the embedded software, considering hardware constraints, design constraints, and available resources to satisfy the software high-level requirements, and specify software low-level requirements
Develop embedded software in the C and Assembly programming languages for ARM microcontroller targets
Integrate the software with other software and the target hardware; assist with system integration
Assess, measure, troubleshoot, and resolve issues with software execution and characteristics such as timing and performance
Promote the reuse of embedded software and associated life cycle data throughout the Airborne Software team
Perform peer reviews of other team member's contributions to the software development project
Inform the software verification team for the appropriate testing and analysis of the embedded software
Lead a small team of embedded software engineers for the development of software for an airborne system
Mentor junior engineers by training them on DO-178C objectives, activities, and outputs; real-time and safety-critical embedded software best practices; and integration and troubleshooting methods and techniques
Minimum Qualifications we are seeking:
BS in Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, or a related degree from an accredited university
Minimum 7 years experience in real-time embedded software development for safety-critical systems
Excellent requirements engineering and software architecture/design experience
Mastery of the C programming language
Knowledge of Texas Instruments Hercules and/or STM ARM microcontrollers, or equivalent
Comfortable reading electrical schematics, technical documentation, reference manuals, and datasheets
Deep experience with electronics lab equipment such as programmable power supplies, signal generators, oscilloscopes, and bus analyzers
Expert level knowledge and experience with the activities and outputs required for DO-178C Level A compliance
Excellent team communication and collaboration skills
Ability to work independently, as a member of an integrated team, and as a technical leader of a small team of dedicated software engineers
Deep knowledge and experience with communications interfaces and devices such as SPI, I2C, CAN, ARINC 429, Analog-to-Digital Converters, Direct Memory Access controllers, and temperature, voltage, and current sensors
Experience with Stage of Involvement reviews and communication with FAA personnel and DERs
Experience with RTCA DO-330 tool qualification objectives, activities, and outputs
Experience with RTCA DO-331 model-based development objectives, activities, and outputs
Candidates are encouraged to apply even if they don’t meet all minimum qualifications
Above and Beyond Qualifications that will distinguish you:
Experience with the Texas Instruments TMS570 ARM microcontroller
Experience with the Lauterbach TRACE32 debug/instruction trace system
Experience with GNU GCC ARM embedded toolchain and Texas Instruments Code Composer Studio
Experience with the Polarion ALM life cycle data management system
Experience with embedded software for electric motor control, battery management systems and/or flight control systems
Experience with project management activities, such as estimating, tracking, and reporting work; traditional, kanban, and scrum experience
