We’re recruiting an Embedded Software Technical Lead to join us, in an interesting and challenging permanent role, based out of our office in El Segundo.

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:

As Technical Lead, you’ll ideally have a number of years of experience in a similar leadership role, coupled with strong, hands-on technical ability with embedded software (ideally using Java, Android, and possibly C++).

We’re a fast-paced, customer-focused consulting busiess, so you’ll need to be instinctively hard-wired to innovate, communicate and lead by example in all that you do; providing a first class service to your team and a wide variety of customer stakeholders.

How You’ll Spend Your Time:

You’ll remotely support one of our technical teams based in Wroclaw, Poland; attending regular scrum meetings and providing day-to-day support and mentoring for team members.

As a key customer liaison, you’ll need to excel at explaining complex ideas and issues, as well as documenting highly technical projects, systems and solutions, for both internal and external use.

A key member of our US-based team, you’ll drive the technical direction of projects for a new generation of streaming TV products in an Agile environment. This will involve working with developers, system engineers, architects, testers and project managers to ensure the successful delivery of a project from a technical perspective.

You’ll work in a relaxed, entrepreneurial environment and will have the freedom to create great solutions and awesome outcomes every day, while working at the cutting-edge of embedded technology

Please note: Due to the nature of this role, there will be regular travel to meetings at the customer’s LA site (0.7 miles away) and occasional travel to other global Red Embedded offices

  • An established track record of Technical leadership on embedded software projects, coupled with strong hands-on technical skills
  • Excellent knowledge of Java in an embedded Linux or Android environment

  • Matched 401(k) contributions up to 4%

Our Recruitment Process:

Then, if you progress to interview stage we’ll try to cover off everything we can in one sitting, to make the process quicker for you - which means our interviews can be slightly longer than average.
