Overview

Ekso Bionics (OTC BB: EKSO) is an exciting East Bay company committed to developing and commercializing human exoskeleton technology. Within our Medical Products Group, we design and manufacture bionic exoskeleton devices that provide functional rehabilitation, gait training, and upright, weight-bearing mobility for patients with spinal cord and stroke injuries.  We also pursue ground breaking technologies to extend and enhance human strength and endurance.

This is a very exciting time for Ekso Bionics.  As we look toward the next generation of robotic exoskeleton mobility devices, your contributions will have a direct and meaningful impact on the lives of millions of spinal cord injury and stroke survivors worldwide.

THE POSITION:

We are looking for a senior embedded systems engineer with strong experience in software architecture, embedded systems, and robotics.  The ideal candidate will feel extremely comfortable making high level software architecture decisions and writing and executing embedded code.

You will be responsible for the realization of software and firmware at the CPU and embedded processor level.  You will work closely with the team to help architect the next generation system and implement efficient code and best design practices.  You will participate in the full product lifecycle from research and development, to product development, verification, validation, and product release.

Previous experience working with a Class II+ medical system is highly desired; however experience working in a similarly safety-critical and regulated market (auto, medical, space) is acceptable.

RESPONSIBILITIES:

+ Conceptualize, plan, design, analyze and test embedded software and firmware.

+ Work within the quality management system at Ekso Bionics

+ Communicate progress and risks with team and project manager.

+ Various other tasks and projects you choose to own.

 

REQUIREMENTS:

+ 5 to 10 years of experience in embedded systems software design and development.

+ 3 to 5 years of experience in robotics or motion control applications

+ Demonstrated experience using software development best practices – requirements capture, design reviews, code reviews, coding conventions.

+ Expertise in C/C++ necessary

+ Demonstrated mastery developing within an RTOS environment.

+ Experience with CAN or EtherCAT is highly desired

+ Experience in a regulated industry is required, medical device experience is highly desired.

+ Familiarity with Class B/C software and software lifecycle processes (IEC 62304) or equivalently regulated environment is desired.

+ Demonstrated ability to complete complicated design projects.

+ Experience designing and proving compliance to medical safety standards is desired but not required.

+ Superb verbal, written, and graphical communication abilities.
