Tampere, Finland
Closing date: 11 August 2024

Saab Sensor Technology Center in Tampere is part of Surveillance organization unit at Saab. The R&D teams are developing extremely complex and innovative electronic warfare systems, motivated by a clear target: to keep people safe. As an example of a brilliant product that we are developing in Tampere, check out Sirius Compact!

We have an excellent software development team full of both experienced professionals and growing juniors, but are still eagerly looking for new colleagues to join us and help us make some awesome high-tech stuff! Backlog is full for years to come, and there are many roles and tasks available in the SW team, which we can tailor together based on your expertise and career ambitions.

In addition to the hands-on implementation of top quality software, you'll work closely with other teams (RF, HW, testing) to figure out what the software needs to do and how the system should work. You get to work with absolutely cutting-edge technologies, and are guaranteed to learn something new along the way!

Currently we are primarily looking for a more seasoned SW developer(s), with experience on embedded software development in general but also with the skills listed below. As there are many opportunities and different expertise areas we are targeting to strengthen, we appreciate if you accompany your application with a motivation letter where you give us clear insight on what you can do, would like to do and learn, and which kind of role and responsibilities you would be interested in.

So, what do you need to bring to the table? 

  •  You are an expert in C++ and have solid understanding of embedded systems
  • You have experience with embedded operating systems like Linux and ideally also with RTOS
  • Being comfortable with agile software development processes is expected

You also have strong experience at least in one of the following:

  • Security implementation with FPGA vendors’ tools
  • Yocto as a system building tool
  • Software testing

Additional know-how that is greatly appreciated but individual bullets are not blockers:

  • Digital signal processing or radar application know-how
  • Knowledge about FPGA platforms
  • Hardware interfaces and communication protocols
  • Familiarity with tools like JTAG debuggers, oscilloscopes, and logic analyzers

If the description above sounds like you, we encourage you to apply!

In this job, some of your tasks have a connection to defense secrecy. Therefore, a drug test and approved security clearance in accordance with the Finnish Security Clearance act 726/2014 is required for the selected applicant.

In addition to interesting projects and learning by doing, Saab offers various trainings and learning paths to help you build your competence and career.
