Job description

Needed: Embedded Software Engineer to help us invent new products that will improve people’s lives in ways they didn’t imagine possible.

At Bose, we’re applying our obsessive approach to improving people’s lives in new ways beyond audio entertainment. The Wellness Product Innovation Group is a SWAT team of entrepreneurs within Bose’s Wellness division focused on inventing new products to help people sleep better. By leveraging new-to-the-world technologies, world-class engineering, lean startup methodologies, and the power of raw creativity, we create compelling new products that make a difference. This group has the bold attitude and energy of a startup with the financial backing and market leadership of Bose.

Our new noise-masking sleepbuds are one example of the type of life-changing products that you will be inventing. Sleepbuds are just the start of our Wellness ambitions to help people sleep better. This is a unique opportunity to do the most innovative work of your career, ultimately impacting millions of people in a deeply meaningful way.

If you are driven to make a positive impact in the world, both in depth and breadth, and you enjoy working with other really smart people, then we want to meet you.

As an Embedded Software Engineer in this group, you will be responsible for rapid prototyping software on embedded systems. While primarily developing firmware, you should also be comfortable modifying existing electrical hardware designs for your application’s needs. You must quickly prototype product and feature concepts, and responsively iterate them as they are tested against the real world.

  • Expert in C/C++ firmware development
  • Experience developing on ARM Cortex based microcontrollers
  • Expert in developing low power firmware, including miserly management of MCU power states, peripherals, interrupts, etc
  • Experience with peripheral interfaces including but not limited to SPI, I2C, USB, UART, DMA, etc
  • Comfort with reading/modifying electrical schematics
  • Expert in bringing up and debugging boards
  • B.S. degree (or higher) in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, or equivalent required.

Interpersonal Requirements

We’re looking for team members with an unusual mix of interpersonal skills. Can you confidently check all the boxes below?

Passion: You are driven by a burning desire to make a difference and change the world. There’s a reason this is listed first.

Big picture thinker: You take ownership in the big picture vision, and continuously look for ways to tailor your work to best achieve the collective mission. You don’t shy away from helping others outside of your stated job description.

Comfort with ambiguity: You work with strong conviction of your success, even when the work involves a high level of ambiguity. You thrive in extreme uncertainty through calculated prioritization of your work.

Emotional intelligence: You handle interpersonal relationships – with subordinates, peers, stakeholders, and external partners – judiciously and empathetically.

Open-mindedness: You are comfortable with being wrong – you readily acknowledge and course-correct. You care more about creating the best possible product than winning an argument.

Integrity: You have a strong internal desire to do what’s right. You value being trusted, and are diligent to continually earn that trust.

Communication : You are able to distill numerous and complex ideas down to simple messages. You have a proven ability to collaborate with many different people and functions.

Confidence: You have the credibility to command the respect of colleagues across functional disciplines. You are confident but not cocky.

Innovation: You are passionate about innovation and new-to-the-world products, rather than incremental product line extensions. What we want you to help us with is not adding a new color or accessory, but rather to bring to life completely new product visions.

Grit: You are a go-to person who can be counted on at crunch time. You find a way.
