Embedded Engineer Job Description

Embedded Engineers combine electrical engineering with computer science, enabling them to handle dedicated systems within larger mechanical and electrical ones. They create code that addresses issues and solves problems within these systems to ensure proper functioning. Development of embedded systems and providing tech support to organizational users are also important functions. They also work with C++, Perl, Java and other programs to create code within Linux and Windows operating systems.

Embedded Engineers often create operating systems around the provided hardware, ensuring functioning that meets the needs of the organization. They configure existing operating systems so that they work within the organization's design, and tweak them to meet the users' needs. Embedded Engineers must also be able to handle these tasks while working within the memory and resource constraints of the system.
