Little Riot is looking for looking for an engineer to join our core team in a co-founder role. We need someone who can, from a basic design, optimise prototypes for manufacture. This will involve working to constraints such as minimising power consumption and decreasing the overall device size. 

We are ideally looking for someone capable in both hardware and software. 

With respect to the hardware, the following ATTRIBUTES are necessary:

  • A sound design background in electronic circuit design
  • Experience in ‘miniaturization’ (SMD, multi-layer boards up to 6 layers)
  • Experience with electronic design IDEs (eg. Eagle, Altrium Designer)
  • Experience in designing for production, rather than just R&D

Previous experience of the following would also be advantageous:

  • Bluetooth Low Energy
  • TI CC2451/MSP430/8051
  • UART and SPI coms
  • Lithium batteries and charging circuits

With respect to the software, the following skills are necessary:

  • Coding ability to a low level (chip firmware)
  • Sound knowledge of C/C++
  • Experience in coding, emulation, debug and optimisation of code
  • Experience in IDEs

Previous experience of the following would be useful:

  • IAC 8051 IDE
  • BLE Stacks
  • TI CC2451/MSP430/8051
  • UART and SPI coms
  • OTA updating

You will be working within a startup. Subject to you joining us, we can offer a salary, equity and a fun, flexible working environment. You will also partake in an exciting 3+ month programme starting in January, throughout which the company will be based in either London, San Francisco or Shenzen.
