Wearable Brain is developing an electronic brain to augment our biological brain. We are investing in some major technological breakthroughs to make this happen: ultra-low power communication (50x lower than BLE), ultra-low power sensing, and computation (<100 micro-watt keyword detection, object detection, imager, and speech transcription among others). We are assembling a team of the leading experts in the field of IC/system design/computer vision/ hardware engineers with an appetite for taking on the next big thing. We are backed by well known Venture Capital firms and corporate VCs. Come join us in the journey of transforming the future.

Team and Role Overview

Wearable Brain is looking for a talented embedded software engineer to join a rapidly growing space startup. As a member of the Integrated Software team, you will help build low-level software for wearables.

Candidate Profile

You have experience bringing up new, custom embedded computer designs, from bootloaders to operating systems and device drivers. At Wearable Brain, the software you develop will be a core piece of a software system that controls the human computer interaction.

Skills We're Stoked About

  • BS in Electronics/Electrical/Computer Engineering, Computer Science or equivalent.

  • 5 years of experience in an innovative IoT product development environment, preferably wearables.

  • Hands-on experience with full-stack MCU firmware development.

  • Excellent C/C++ for embedded systems development.

  • Experience with the following communication interfaces: I2C, SPI, BLE.

  • Experience developing for low-power ARM MCU and its power optimization.

Preferred skills

  • Advanced degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Electronics, or equivalent.

  • Experience with low-level HW interfaces and low-level debugging.

  • Strong hardware/electrical know-how. You know how to test if your firmware works as expected by probing the hardware using a multimeter, oscilloscope, spectrum analyzer, etc.

  • Experience with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Ethernet and USB communication protocols.

  • Embedded project hobbies.

  • Experience with PCB design.

  • Experience with toolchains and setting up a custom build environment.

Wearable Brain is a VC backed, fast-growing, stealth-mode startup with a unique IP that enables us to transmit data at 50X lower power than Bluetooth at iso data rate. We are a fabless system-on-chip product company, on a mission to develop a wearable electronic brain with input from distributed sensors like camera, microphones, body monitors etc.

We are headquartered in Seattle, USA. However, this position is for our West Lafayette, IN or Seattle, WA office. The position can be remote requires at least a weekly office visit.
