Embedded Software Engineer Job Description

An embedded software engineer is a person who designs, develops, and tests software for a specific application.

Most embedded engineers are hired by companies to design and develop hardware for their products, though they can also design software, firmware, and computer control systems.

Embedded engineers work closely with other engineers to develop new technologies, and they usually hold a degree in a field like computer engineering or electrical engineering.

“Embedded” refers to the fact that most embedded engineers work on projects that fit into a specific product.

Instead of designing operating systems used on computers or mobile phones, embedded engineers work on products that have a specific function, like a car dashboard or a washing machine.
