Job description

As a Senior Firmware/Embedded Software Development Engineer, your main focus will be the design of firmware (FW) architectures for ASICs / microcontrollers, which are integrated in various cars all across the globe. At Infineon, we are committed to making cars safer with our innovative and leading sensor portfolio. Our side airbag pressure sensors, for example, detect the spike in pressure caused by a side impact, thereby triggering the side airbag. These sensors are positioned in the car’s door compartments and are regarded as the fastest method of deploying life-saving side airbags.

In your new role you will:
  • Design FW components and units, based on requirements and specification.
  • Actively contribute to the definition and documentation of the hardware – firmware interface.
  • Implement and test FW components and units in ASM, C, C++ for different platforms raging from ASIPs to ARM cores.
  • Define test cases for unit testing and integration testing.
  • Perform code reviews on FW/SW design, implementation and testing.
  • Operate with laboratory equipment for testing & debugging (e.g. Oscilloscopes, Logic Analyzer, Protocol Analyzers…).


You manage your performance consistently and reliably. You demonstrate strong communication skills, know how to establish lasting relationships and networks, clarify areas of responsibility, coordinate your work with colleagues, and regularly share your insights with them. With your way of being you inspire and encourage your colleagues to succeed. At the same time you remain aware of the big picture even in complex situations and take actions despite uncertain circumstances.

You are best equipped for this task if you have:
  • A Master/Bachelors’ degree in Electronic Engineering, Computer Science or equivalent degree.
  • 4+ years’ experience in a Firmware Development Engineer role.
  • Strong programming C skills for embedded platforms (Microcontrollers, ASICs, SoCs).
  • Experience in debugging with Simulators, In-Chip systems and Virtual Prototypes (FPGA, SystemC models, Simulink models etc).
  • Proven expertise using bug tracking platforms.
  • Good knowledge of microcontroller architectures and peripherals.
  • Fluent English skills.
