This is the ideal role for a very Senior Embedded Software Engineer who wants to continue in hands on technical work, take the lead on projects but is not particularly interested in man management.
Although a large company, this organisation has a relatively flat structure and have recently won an award for being an outstanding employer to work for. They have a very long list of attributes that make them stand out from the crowd –
As well as the usual corporate benefits package and performance related bonus schemes, employees benefit from a very active social club that has created a “family feel” to the company, free lunch and breakfast, structured career development plans that allow staff to thrive within both technical disciplines and leadership roles, a very large budget for employee training and perhaps most importantly there is an incredible amount of variety in technical work – Embedded Software Engineers typically work on 2-3 different projects at once and in turn, the company have a very low turnover of staff.
