Senior Embedded SW Engineer – Cutting-edge sensor technology!

Do you want to work with leading global expertise within sensor technology? Do you want to apply your technical know-how to the future of human presence detection? Are you passionate about innovation and cutting edge technology?

Welcome to Novelda, a world leader within UWB sensing!

In Novelda we create the world’s most accurate, low-power and reliable sensor solution for human presence detection. Our patented ultra-wide band (UWB) short-range impulse radar sensors, no bigger than the tip of your finger, enable new levels of user experience and security for consumer electronics and significant energy savings for smart buildings.

We already have an awesome R&D & tech-team in place here in Nydalen and Trondheim consisting of Digital Signal Processing experts, Embedded Developers and Full-Stack developers. Now we need  engineers who love a challenge, who love to design and who love developing world-class embedded software.

The role and the team

The embedded team is a key factor in executing the complete embedded software development lifecycle. This involves collaborating closely with IC developers, HW- and RF-designers, as well as algorithm designers and validation engineers.  The main goal? To create scalable and optimized software systems.

A lot of the work is about integration with customer systems (sensor hub integration). The position will have focus on low-level embedded programming. You will be responsible for creating tools to bring up new IC platforms. This includes testing, characterisation on Linux embedded platforms, and developing Kernel drivers. Longer-term; there will also be focus on development of new embedded platforms.

Other tasks and responsibilities:

  • Participate in design, bring-up, development, debugging and maintenance of embedded system software.
  • Participate in design reviews and documentation.
  • Work with new technologies that are vital to product development.
  • Contribute to software team development patterns and best practices.
  • Mentor less experienced team members.


Who are we looking for?

We are looking for someone who confidently can say that he / she is an expert-level coder for embedded MCU`s in a production environment. You have a minimum of 5 years` experience and in- depth experience from RTOS and bare-metal embedded systems and / or Linux Kernel. You have experience with coding in C and modern C++, C++11/17/20 and meta-programming. Additionally, you have experience in one or more of the following: sensors, RF, radar`s and associated algorithm development.


What can we offer?

All our engineers feel that they are being part of creating something new and awesome. We are a tech-company after all, thus making our engineers the key resources in ensuring that we deliver best in class products and software. You will be given demanding and complex assignments while we also allow all our engineers to be integral in relation to how we do things.

We are not yet a large-scale company and we still have a bit of a start-up feel about us coupled with a great commercial potential. We pay competitive salary with benefits and encourage all our engineers to move within teams as their career progresses.
