Lead Robotics Platform Software Engineer


Design and Development
Singapore - St James Power Station Headquarters

About us

You'll be an experienced real-time embedded platform software engineer with excellent knowledge in software build/test/release process for continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD). Working in an agile cross-functional team, you will be a key member of the embedded software platform team and contribute to the development of CI/CD pipeline, build system, tool chain, board bring up and Linux BSP integration, and providing a reliable hardware abstracted platform to enable the development of upper layer application in our robotic products.

You desire to create high quality, robust code to solve diverse real-world problems. You must be fluent in both C and C++ and be comfortable in the whole product life cycle, including design, implementation, deployment, testing and debugging of firmware and application code.


You'll collaborate with architects, software, firmware and hardware engineers, manufacturing test engineers, and specialist engineering to help solve the wide and exciting range of AI-powered devices’ challenges posed by the ever expanding Dyson product portfolio.

About the role

  • Build and set up new development tools, CI/CD pipeline and infrastructure for embedded system products.
  • Work on ways to automate and improve development and release processes
  • Design and implement software platforms to abstract hardware and enable application/algorithm engineers to implement features on AI-enabled products.
  • Bring up new platform and peripherals on embedded Linux/RTOS and lead debugging/tuning task with multiple hardware/firmware teams and suppliers.
  • Profile performance problems and drive optimizations that span the entire software stack.
  • Manage the entire life cycle of multiple related complex modules and systems, including software build/test/release, manufacturing test/verification methodology, documentation, design, coding, testing, maintenance, and result tracking.
  • Good product sense and keen focus on product performance and test automation efficiency.
  • Act as subject matter expert (SME) in specific domain, disseminating knowledge, guiding and mentor engineers in methodology, best practice and standards
  • Proactively identify technical risks within projects and influence engineering teams in their resolution
  • In-depth participation in cross-teams product design discussions will be required.
