Job Description

As an Embedded Software Engineer at Nexxiot your goal is to continuously design, develop and improve our low-power, maintenance free, telematic IoT devices.

  • Write and maintain technical documentation.
  • Act as an onboarding buddy for new team members.


You’re a curious and open-minded person who is eager to learn new ideas and technologies. Ideally, you’re always looking to find ways to improve on existing processes and automate recurring tasks, freeing up time for us to focus on the bigger picture! We take a structured approach to engineering and documentation so being goal orientated and well organized when it comes to your code is critical!

  • A minimum of 3 years’ experience in embedded/firmware software development, preferably working with hardware/IoT devices.
