Job Title: Embedded Software Engineer

Location: Cambridge, United Kingdom

Breakthrough technology is vital for strengthening the UK’s Defence and Homeland Security. As an Embedded Software Engineer at Awerian, you will be at the forefront of this innovation race to defend and protect the UK from the latest technological and cyber threats.

Your work will have a real-world impact. You’ll get to explore pioneering concepts by collaborating with elite multi-disciplinary teams of highly educated and skilled scientists, engineers, and designers. It’s a fantastically challenging, varied and agile role.

You will see ideas become a reality through the development of prototypes using Awerian’s rapid approach to design and implementation.

Using C and at least one other language as appropriate for prototyping or test harness creation (such as C#, C++, Java, MATLAB, PHP, Python or Simulink) you’ll get to develop embedded software for new inventions and cutting-edge technology.

Through the whole product life-cycle, you’ll capture, design, develop, document, test, and deliver through to the prototype production. This will use all your experimental and problem-solving skills.

You will get to enjoy a broad range of technically demanding projects with the freedom to find solutions with the support of highly capable and intelligent colleagues.

You will need a record of academic excellence and a relevant degree. We are keen to hear from Embedded Software Engineers with work experience in any sector, as well as graduate students.

If you are fluent in the use of C for embedded systems and can use at least one other high-level language; you’ll thrive in this role. The work often involves complex systems, so a broader understanding of science and engineering disciplines will prove useful.


Joining Awerian means you’ll enjoy our fantastic employee benefits including:

  • Free lunch, snacks, and refreshments
