Embedded Software Engineer - Motor Control

Job Summary

As an embedded software engineer specialized in motor control, you will contribute to the green energy transition by applying your motor control experience on 3-phase electrical drives. You will create state-of-the-art Model-Based Design solutions to simulate and deploy motor control algorithms.

You will collaborate with other top innovators throughout the company to implement advanced hardware identification and plant modeling techniques. You will create strategies to design the best performing algorithms producing maximum torque per Ampere with field weakening using Model-Based Design.


  • As one of the technical expert on the team, you will work on development projects from requirements gathering to product release.
  • You will grow motor control and embedded programming expertise by creating high quality motor control algorithm blocks that help users to do their design easily and efficiently.
  • You will collaborate with other developers throughout the company to create motor control solutions integrated with MathWorks products.

Minimum Qualifications

  • A bachelor's degree and 7 years of professional work experience (or a master's degree and 5 years of professional work experience, or a PhD degree) is required.

Additional Qualifications

Must have:

  • Experience with 3-phase motor control (PMSM, IPM, Induction/Reluctance motors etc.)
  • Experience with MATLAB or Simulink.
  • Experience with embedded development environments: IDEs and debuggers.
  • Experience with Power Electronics
  • Experience with complex software development projects requiring collaboration with multiple developers
  • Experience with position sensors like resolvers, encoders, Hall sensors, etc.


  • Experience programming device drivers (e.g., CAN, I2C, SPI, SCI, PWM, A/D converters etc.)
  • Experience with TI C2000 processors
  • Experience with STM32 processors
  • Experience with bare-metal scheduler
  • Experience with integrating run-time libraries
  • Experience with real-time operating systems (RTOS) , e.g., Embedded Linux, Android, VxWorks
  • Experience with SoC (e.g. Zynq)
  • Experience with Programming ARM Cortex-M and ARM Cortex-A based processors.
  • Experience with programming multi-threaded embedded applications
  • Experience with object-oriented design and analysis (OOAD)
  • Experience with FPGAs
