Software Architect- embedded Linux Greater Bridgeport

A highly profitable Bridgeport area manufacturer of microprocessor-based electronics is searching for a Software Architect with strong embedded Linux background. This privately held manufacturer is the world leader in their line of commercial products, and they have more than doubled their sales over the past ten years. 2016 was their best year ever. Their “recession proof” products have had strong sales lately in China and India. They pride themselves on being serious about implementing continuous improvement and in employing lean manufacturing techniques. Their facility is located conveniently right off I-95. The products incorporate 16 through 64 bit microprocessors, usually Renasys and Microchip products. Other components include RF Zigbee, embedded touch screens, Bluetooth, Android, WiFi, network communication protocols like CANbus, feedback control systems, motor drive controllers, using PID methodology, and more. Your initial project will be to develop new embedded C/C++ Linux-based touch screen computers which incorporate System on Modules, WiFi, video, sound, and security pieces. This will involve configuring and customizing Linux kernels and some Linux device driver development. Salary target ranges from $100,000 – $140,000, but I will show them anyone with this background to $150,000. There is an annual discretionary 10 – 20% bonus plan here, too. Benefits are quite good for a smaller company and include major medical, dental, vision, flexible spending accounts, tuition aid, access to fitness facilities, relocation assistance, and a company-matched 401 (k) plan.
Requires permanent U.S. residency, a four year engineering degree, and strong enough embedded Linux development experience to be able to write drivers and customize Linux kernels for control systems. Any background using Agile/Scrum development techniques, Capability Maturity Model Integration, or ISO/IEC 12207 standards for lifecyle development is preferred. Would anyone in your professional circle be interested in investigating this opportunity? Since I have recruited on and off for this company since the early ‘90s, much more detail is available.
