Electronic design/software engineer

WildFoundry are seeking an enthusiastic hardware design engineer based in Oxford to build and support a hack/maker community around dataplicity. This is a unique role available as either contract or permanent.

Permanent   Oxford, UK

Core to this requirement are the following:

  • inventing, building and documenting hackaday/instructables-style projects;
  • building Lego (maybe Mindstorms), Scalextric and drones, remote sensing and telemetry;
  • supporting and answering queries from our community;
  • writing Python or C code for Raspberry Pi;
  • publishing blog articles.

Skills & Requirements

This role requires an enthusiastic applicant with a basic understanding of electronics design and Python programming and an excellent level of written English. But what we are really interested in is your involvement in the maker and IoT hobbyist community and thus when you apply, we're going to ask you about:

  • Your hardware/project blog
  • Your attendance and involvement in hackathons
  • Stuff you build in your spare time just for fun

The successful applicant will be expected to work in our Oxford (Summertown) office and therefore must have existing entitlement to work in the UK.
