The company - Apeiron Labs is reimagining ocean monitoring by developing technologies to reduce the cost of ocean sensing by orders of magnitude. We are a venture-backed company, and our co-founders, Applied Invention and S2G Ventures, have a successful track record of creating and investing in some of the world's most impactful technologies and companies. Apeiron means unbounded in Greek. The challenge and opportunity are unbounded, and your unbounded creativity can be part of the solution!

The Role

As an embedded systems engineer, you will conceptualize, design, and implement the initial versions of our embedded systems. Key subsystems will include internal buses, communications, sensors, autonomy (including real-time components), robotics, power management, edge AI, and data storage and retrieval.

Key Responsibilities

  • Define the hardware requirements, develop firmware, test the performance of subsystems against requirements and iterate on optimizing them.
  • Identify, procure, and make the hardware sing. Develop code with a view to continuously integrate, deploy, and test
  • Develop an internal message bus system that can scale to several subsystems while respecting timing constraints
  • When needed, specify design packages, and evaluate, qualify, select, and manage contract manufacturers to fabricate designs
  • Identify and recruit other embedded engineers as the team grows
  • Develop and maintain an embedded systems roadmap for future versions. This includes keeping track of new hardware in the market and the potential to use it in future systems.

Minimum Qualifications

  • An undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science or a related field is required
  • 5+ years of real-world experience with a variety of embedded platforms and their toolchains
  • Experience with shipping products with embedded firmware you developed.
  • Ability to use COTS modules whenever possible to rapidly transition ideas to tangible working prototypes
  • Ability to prototype hardware boards and wiring harnesses
  • Excellent communication, interpersonal, computer, and technical writing skills are mandatory
  • Enthusiasm to join a startup taking on the challenge of reimagining ocean monitoring

Highly preferred qualifications

  • Experience applying your firmware engineering experience to robots, submersibles, spacecraft, drones, or similar power and weight-constrained complex electromechanical systems
