At Hallsten Innovations, We develop custom electronics-based OEM solutions. We are building the Internet of Things one innovative design at a time, and we need your help.
If you live for technology and gadgets, if wireless is as important to you as the air you breathe, and if the Internet of Things is as valuable to you as personal relationships, then you might be a contender for this dream job.
We are searching for a rockstar to fill a firmware engineer / ambassadorship role in Downtown Chicago’s mHUB.
mHUB is the hottest maker and engineering ecosystem in the Midwest. This will be Hallsten Innovation’s first personnel role in the Chicago area, and you will be connecting back with our Ohio Headquarters regularly. Rest assured, our Chicago presence will grow over time, and you will share the role with new Hallsten Innovations’ employees in the coming months.
Firmware Engineer Technology Requirements
In order to realize the 20 Billion Things needed to be connected to the Internet, we need crucial firmware talent.
Here’s the hard part – we need an EE/Computer Engineer with a strong knowledge of firmware design, or a Computer Science guru with personal or professional experience in understanding circuit design (yes that means resistors, transistors, connectors, integrated circuits and processors on a board) for the purposes of firmware development.
The understanding between software and hardware cannot be underscored enough, so this position requires a proven track record of experience in this area of interplay.
- Proficient in C/C++ programming language
- Familiar with modern embedded development tool chains (iar, gnu, arm, etc)
- Familiar with modern 32-bit RISC CPU architecture and at least one assembly languages
- Deep understanding of real-time system basics and solid experience with RTOS in addition to bare metal stems
- Experience and knowledge with host interfaces and peripherals
- Comfortable with lab environment, including system bring up, testing, and debugging; familiar with basic lab equipment
- Strong capability in diagnosing and root-causing problems with various SW and HW tools
- Ability to work well and communicate effectively with other team members and management
- Experience with IoT wireless protocols & chipsets a plus
- A proven track record of industry experience in real-time embedded system development
A Secondary Mission – Ambassador and Liaison
While working as an embedded software engineer is to be your lead responsibility, you will also be the Hallsten Innovations representative at mHUB. This secondary mission requires personal interactions, relationship building, and the development of new opportunities for Hallsten Innovations. The mHUB will be full of makers and technologists like yourself. Representing a company that delivers the actual Things for the Internet of Things will be a honorable badge to wear amid this group.
mHUB is not just a shared office space, but a creator space complete with laser cutters, CNC machines, and pick and place machines for surface mount circuit board production, etc. In one last role, you will act as a Liaison between Hallsten Innovations HQ in Ohio and these high tech mHUB services.
Maker vs. Commercialization Experience
The mHUB will be a mixture of those with Maker experience, and those with product commercialization experience- not the same thing. If you have experience that bridges this gap, you are getting closer to being our dream candidate.
