The successful candidate for this position will contribute directly to the design and implementation of embedded software for the Smart Display product line, or the Turret Control of the Mobile Protected Firepower tank platform.


    The Vetronics team's software runs close to the hardware. We measure our boot time in milliseconds.

We write code for ARM processors and microprocessors. Think: code that's written for an Odroid, Arduino or Raspberry Pi, but take it to the next level.
