Embedded Engineer Job Description

An embedded engineer works with the code of dedicated computer systems within larger electrical and mechanical systems. They create code that addresses and solves problems within the system for proper functioning. Embedded engineers also help develop systems and provide technical support directly to users within an organization. They are responsible for modifying, maintaining and upgrading embedded systems based on the needs of the company and users. Some embedded engineers create operating systems that work within the provided hardware, and configure existing ones for proper functioning with the organization's design. Each of these tasks requires the ability to work within resource and memory constraints, all while creating safe, reliable systems that perform correctly.

The embedded engineer classification combines computer science with electrical engineering, which provides candidates with multiple opportunities. The increase of electronic usage by consumers and businesses continues to grow, leading to an increased demand for qualified candidates. Companies in the aerospace, automotive, defense, consumer electronics, telecommunications, medical device manufacture, military and industrial sectors have the most demand for professionals in the field. An ideal candidate has a deep understanding of software and hardware communication, and offers expert-level coding skills. The ability to work with Java, Perl, C++ and other programs are important, along with in-depth knowledge of Linux and other operating systems. The continued growth of Smart technologies and the focus of industry on systems that improve productivity and efficiency creates a high demand for embedded engineers that is expected to continue well into the future.
