Embedded Software Engineer - Deep Tech

  • Location
    Cambridge, United Kingdom


Embedded Software Consultants at TTP develop solutions that make a difference to people’s lives, grow our clients’ businesses and help our business thrive. This can be in a wide range of application areas – for example connected medical sensing devices; bespoke protocols for safety-critical radio communications; low-latency industrial automation use cases; or radio drivers for a satellite payload. Projects may last from a few weeks to a few years.

As a Consultant Embedded Software Engineer, you will be involved in all stages of software and product development including analysis, system architecture, prototype design, implementation and test development. Your solutions will be implemented using a range of tools often with the freedom to select the best one for the job. As well as bringing depth in embedded software engineering, your technical breadth will enable you to quickly grasp new ideas and collaborate effectively with people from a variety of backgrounds.

You will contribute to and lead ambitious projects, working collaboratively in multi-disciplinary teams with a high degree of devolved responsibility. Your project planning skills and judgement will enable you to carefully balance the uncertainties of R&D with time and budget constraints. High levels of communication, alignment, and trust enable each team member’s insight and energy to shape outcomes and contribute to team goals.

You will grow strong, collaborative relationships with clients and our prospective clients, understanding them along with their strategy and vision, developing solutions that they buy into, and maintaining this understanding and buy-in through the success of challenging technology projects.
