Intermediate Firmware Engineer
StarFish Medical
Victoria, BC

Our client, StarFish Medical, is Canada’s largest medical device design, development and contract manufacturing company. We are seeking a talented Intermediate Firmware Engineer who will enjoy designing, implementing, maintaining and documenting products developed at Starfish Medical. This includes a rare opportunity to work in partnership with the Project Manager, client and multi-disciplinary teams on medical device design from the proof of concept stage through to manufacturing and release.

Our Perfect Candidate Brings:

  • A Degree or Technical Certification in Computer Science/Engineering, Electrical Engineering, electronics, Physics, or equivalent
  • A minimum of 5 years’ experience developing firmware for commercial products
  • Expertise in C and is experienced in programming hardware interfaces
  • Experience in product development, specifically developing firmware for electronic devices, throughout the product development lifecycle
  • Excellent communication skills, both written, and verbal in English
  • Strong interpersonal skills and a proven ability to collaborate as an effective team player
  • Eligibility to work in Canada

Who are you?

You bring a unique engineering ability as a firmware developer and have the capability to understand the requirements of the hardware integration. Your experience provides you with a comfort level handling a variety of microcontrollers, oscilloscopes, function generators and multimeters, to name a few. You understand coding details and you know how to incorporate them into the bigger picture – you are a ‘project integrator’.

You’re known as a C expert, and it would be great (but not essential) if you have used assembler and/or C++. You have the ability to translate the technical jargon to both peers and to cross-functional teams. In effect, you can zero in on code detail, but you can rise above to the 10,000 foot level and see the bigger picture too. If this describes you, we welcome your application!

Please see the Job Description below to learn about the finer details of this position. A benefits and profit sharing package is included, and the salary is commensurate with skills and experience.

StarFish Medical is Canada’s premier medical device development group, an integrated team of 100+ technical product development professionals who work on device design projects for North American and international customers.

This position is based in their Victoria, BC office, where you are met with an exciting sense of driven scientific and engineering excellence, and genuine employee engagement. When employees were recently asked what they enjoyed most about working at StarFish, they highly rated peers and work culture, interesting and meaningful work, and flexible working conditions.

How To Apply:
