We are recruiting a placement student to join us in our Shipley office for one year starting in summer 2019.

We’re a technology-focused professional services company at heart.

Red Embedded was born out of a love for embedded technology, a fierce sense of adventure, and a strong desire to do something different.

We are 120 people, working across 3 global offices, to provide cutting-edge embedded solutions for some of the world’s biggest TV, Internet of Things and consumer electronic brands

If that's something that you're interested in, we'd love to hear from you.

In Brief:

You’ll join us on an initial 12-month placement and, after getting up to speed working on internal projects, you’ll become part of an Agile development team; working in a fast-paced, customer-facing software development role. This will give you a great grounding in embedded software design, as well as commercial experience of C++ and Java, and exposure to technologies such as Android.

This role will challenge you and push you out of your comfort zone, so we’re looking for bright, able students with sound theoretical knowledge, an ability to learn “on the job”, and excellent inter-personal skills.

Most of all, we’re looking for people that are passionate about embedded technology and who want to expand their horizons in an exciting and fast-moving area of the technology industry.

Successful applicants are likely to be covering the following areas during their degree studies:

  • Computer architecture
  • Software engineering
  • Object oriented design
  • Programming in a range of languages, ideally including one or more of C, C++ and Java
  • Experience using software development tools including IDEs (for example, Eclipse), version control systems (for example, Git, Mercurial or Subversion), compilers and debuggers
  • Familiarity with Linux operating systems and common command line tools

Applicants Require:

  • To be studying for an undergraduate honours degree in Computer Science, Computer Systems Engineering or a similar subject
  • To have completed at least two years of study by summer 2019
  • Excellent communication skills in English (written and spoken)
  • Excellent problem-solving skills
