Sr. Firmware Engineer
5130- Software Engineering
VP Platform Engineering
Phyn is changing the way people think about water. In just nine years nearly two in three people may face a shortage of clean water. Yet in the U.S alone, people unknowingly waste a trillion gallons of water per year, largely because it's an invisible problem that is hidden behind the walls, underground, or simply ignored. But what if it could become more visible? We believe that creating the tools to bring issues to light before they start is the key to saving water, saving money and, just maybe, saving the planet.
The successful candidate for this position will help architect, design, develop, and maintain embedded hardware and firmware based systems for use in the latest in consumer and industrial electronic products, including cutting edge technologies that employ advanced signal processing techniques and cloud based machine learning techniques to help customers conserve water.
This position will be responsible for all phases of software development targeting embedded systems, including design, coding, integration, and debugging of major portions of software projects such as embedded web services, device drivers, communications protocols, and other embedded software applications.
The successful candidate has sufficient experience and expertise to imaginatively address tasks/assignments of a medium to complex level. Structures and manages the execution of project/program tasks with little guidance and supervision and recommends and executes new approaches. Assignments will require technical analysis and inventive design recommendations for cost effective resolutions of problems. Coordinates across functional groups to ensure all tasks and input are received. Leads technical support staff in testing and analysis. Contributes ideas and/or concepts that support the generation of intellectual property. The successful candidate takes initiative and demonstrates self-motivation and enthusiasm to solve problems.
