To reinforce its engineering team in Aachen (Aix-la-Chapelle), Germany, Elektor Labs has a job opportunity for a young and motivated maker with excellent programming skills.

Today, software determines the specifications of almost every electronic device. Although developing such devices still requires deep knowledge of electronic circuit design, good programming skills are increasingly important. Within this context, Elektor Labs are seeking a motivated embedded electronics engineer or maker who can create software with the quality Elektor’s clients have come to expect.

The ideal candidate takes embedded programming seriously and supplies high-quality software that’s reliable in terms of support and maintenance. As a member of the Electronics Projects Development Team, the new hire will work closely with technical writers and electronics designers from around the world. Consequently, besides having a solid knowledge of analogue and digital circuit design, the ideal candidate should be fluent in English and have excellent communication skills. Finally, the ideal candidate’s work should consistently aim for the best possible end-user experience.

In short, the ideal applicant should be skilled in the following areas:
  • Programming — embedded as well as PC (C/C++/C#, Arduino, Raspbery Pi, Python, VHDL, etc.)
  • Electronics — analogue as well as digital design
  • Communication — written and spoken English; a command of Dutch, German and/or French is appreciated
