Edenworks

Embedded Systems Engineer

Embedded Systems Engineer

New York, NY

Description

Edenworks’ Software & Electronics team (“S&E”) develops tools to monitor, analyze, improve, and automate farm operations. We are looking for a gifted engineer who thrives working on blank page, highly interdisciplinary projects. Must be comfortable occasionally “letting the magic smoke out” of electronic systems.

Presently, S&E engineers switch between design, development, and operations work. With our growing team, we are seeking to reduce context switching and streamline development. You will help facilitate this transition by being the first S&E engineer wholly dedicated to embedded systems development for farm data collection and actuation.

By improving the overall quality and predictability of the sensing and actuation system deployed in and across our farms, you will play a critical role in Edenworks fulfilling its mission of growing affordable, nutritious, delicious, fresh food, wherever it’s needed.
