Job Title: Embedded Software Development Engineer.


Job summary
Project Kuiper is an initiative to launch a constellation of Low Earth Orbit satellites that will provide low-latency, high-speed broadband internet connectivity to un-served and under-served communities around the world. In this role, you will be bringing that vision to life by architecting, developing and testing the low level communication systems payload software and Firmware that provides the radio link connectivity between the satellites to customer-terminals.

Key job responsibilities
In this role, you will drive the design, development, and operation of a variety of key functions such as commanding, telemetry, power control, hardware interfaces, and autonomous capabilities for each satellite throughout its lifetime – from launch to de-orbit.

In this role, you will:

  • Own unique embedded software functions through design, implementation (in C, C++, RUST or other), test, and integration in an embedded Linux or real-time operating system (RTOS) environment.
  • Write software to interact with devices/electronics using I2C, I3C, SPI, RS-422, RS-485, Ethernet, etc. communications.
  • Work closely with silicon and hardware teams to support custom silicon chip and board design, bring-up, and verification, as well as integration and test.
  • Follow best practices in high reliability embedded software development to ensure high levels of reliability and availability.

Export Control Requirement:
Due to applicable export control laws and regulations, candidates must be a U.S. citizen or national, U.S. permanent resident (i.e., current Green Card holder), or lawfully admitted into the U.S. as a refugee or granted asylum.

A day in the life
Come work at Amazon! We need people who want to join an ambitious program that continues to push the state of the art in space-based systems design. Come help us solve the difficult and rewarding development challenges in building highly reliable, power efficient and low-cost satellite avionics and communication systems payload!

About the team
Our team tackles many critical satellite payload functions including payload power management, hardware interfaces, command & telemetry, operational state management, thermal management, resiliency and redundancy, hardware and software integration. We are looking for an outstanding software engineer to participate in all phases of software development from requirements through implementation and test to operations.
