Are you our next Software Engineer cellular IoT Cloud Applications?

For our Cellular Applications Team based in Trondheim, Norway we are looking for a curious engineer with experience in building cloud applications

About the job

It’s an exciting time to join Nordic Semiconductor as we continue our rapid growth while perusing high ambitions with dedicated colleagues worldwide. For our Cellular Applications Team based in Trondheim, Norway we are looking for a curious engineer with experience in building cloud applications. This team functions as an internal customer and is responsible for creating the first cellular IoT applications that run on and with our own hardware.

Key responsibilities

  • Develop the best solution for a cloud backend that a typical customer product can connect to (for example a parcel tracker, an energy meter, or a smart home gateway).
  • Establish new paradigms for device-to-cloud communication: our flagship long-range chip, the nRF9160, is a versatile multi-core system-in-package that has smartphone like cryptographic capabilities but is built for smart products that can run for years on a small battery.
  • Work together with our firmware engineers to building up the internal knowledge about the respective cloud vendors’ idiomatic way to provide connectivity for IoT devices and contribute it to the open-source nRF Connect SDK for our embedded devices.
  • Contribute your knowledge to the open-source Asset Tracker Cloud Example, which enables our customers to set up a real world IoT solution using the respective cloud provider and adapt the example firmware and software quickly for their specific use case.
  • Build small prototypes or demos (for example a LWM2M Gateway for AWS IoT), which explore how to optimize cloud services for ultra-low power IoT devices.

Qualifications and skills

  • A bachelor's degree in Computer Science (or equivalent)
  • 5 years relevant working experience
  • Demonstratable proficiency in building solutions on Amazon Web Services, especially public-facing serverless microservices solutions
  • Strong experience with TypeScript and Node.js, CI/CD, BDD/TDD, Linux, Git, GitHub
  • The ability to navigate in a global matrix organization
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills in English

Personal skills

We are looking for someone who loves to make technology more accessible, with a strong customer-focused mindset. We are presented with many interesting problems to work on, and it is therefore essential that you can work in an environment where challenges pop up continuously and you daily have the opportunity to shift your focus. Keeping the overview in a complex work environment should be natural to you. You should be open-minded about technological choices in your work; our devices are surprisingly powerful and constrained at the same time. Finally, we expect you to be humble: you need to listen closely to what our customers need: our technology needs to fit into existing ecosystems, where we do not make the rules.
