The Engineers of the Embedded team will be within the Software Engineering Function. The team works with other teams to specify, develop and maintain the hardware electronic control units for the control systems of Hyperloop - for safety-critical, real-time and other uses. Senior Embedded Engineers will contribute to the overall embedded control solution by developing firmware and software for the hardware electronic control units and other embedded platforms.
Ultimately, we will design reliable, scalable, real-time (or near-real-time) applications that make Hyperloop One a reality. We are seeking candidates with various levels of experience to join our team of qualified, diverse individuals at our Los Angeles facility.
