Embedded Linux Solution Engineer



Berlin, Germany
Posted on Thursday, January 5, 2023
Memfault is seeking an embedded software engineer to join as an Embedded Linux Solutions Engineer and co-lead the development of our embedded Linux SDK written in Rust. You’ll also be working with cutting-edge hardware companies as they integrate Memfault for the first time or add support for newly built features.
NOTE: We are open to employees working outside of Berlin, Germany. We have monthly team gatherings in Berlin and bi-annual company off-sites around the world, both of which applicants would attend.

Your Role

  • Work with Memfault's customer success and product teams to improve our Linux SDK. The goal for the SDK is to get it to work on every major embedded Linux distribution across a wide variety of IoT devices.
  • Engage directly with firmware engineers at cutting-edge hardware companies and work together to overcome issues integrating the Memfault platform.
  • Build out and improve reference examples and SDK documentation.
  • Contribute to the growing suite of unit, automated, and emulator tests to ensure that improvements work reliably and regressions don’t slip into production.
  • Ship code early and often to customers. You’ll begin to constantly notice devices that are running your code out in the wild!
  • Work on an amazingly deep stack: firmware, operating systems, mobile, web.
  • Have a major impact on our product, our infrastructure, our culture and our business.

Why you may be a fit

  • You love teaching and solving problems, and want to have a major impact on our product, business, and our culture.
  • You have 3+ years of experience Rust/C/C++ code that runs on embedded Linux devices, typically on Arm CPUs.
  • You are well-versed in Yocto or buildroot.
  • You are passionate about modern developer practices, such as automated software testing and CI/CD.
  • You are a great communicator, both conversationally and in written form. You can demonstrate credibility to technical buyers and articulate value to business stakeholders.
  • You are organized and efficiently manage your time and priorities.
  • You are caring and kind: other people do better when they work with you.

Even better if you have

  • Experience with developing firmware on MCUs or Android.
  • Experience with Python and/or SQL.
  • Excitement around up-leveling your sales acumen (one of life's most important skills).

People you'll work with

  • Tyler Hoffman - (Hiring Manager) Co-Founder, Head of Developer Experience
  • Heiko Behrens - Head of Product
  • Andie Cockerill - VP Customer Experience
  • Noah Pendleton - Lead Solutions Engineer - MCU
  • Steve Penna - Lead Solutions Engineer - Android
  • Thomas Sarlandie - Lead Solutions Engineer - Linux
  • Just to name a few!
We want you (yes, you!) to apply

We strongly encourage you to apply if you’re interested: we’d love to know how you can amplify our team with your unique experience!
About Memfault
Memfault is the first IoT reliability platform that empowers teams to build more robust devices at scale. Today hardware teams have little insight into how their products are performing, and what issues are driving the majority of field failures, with Memfault they can operate with the same speed and agility as software organizations. Companies such as Logitech, Bose, Whoop, and Verkada use Memfault’s performance monitoring, device debugging, and OTA update capabilities to ship fast and build high quality products. Memfault was founded by veterans of Pebble, Fitbit, and Oculus, and is backed by fantastic investors such as YCombinator and Uncork Capital.
