What does this job actually entail?

At Blue Current, we believe in diversity and inclusion. We are looking for someone who agrees with these values and can carry them out in the workplace. We welcome applicants from all backgrounds and experience levels.

You can help us develop embedded software for the next generation of charging points with new hardware to be developed. You are comfortable with interacting directly with hardware. We have several assignments open for graduate students.

What will you do?

We develop and manage charge points for our users. We do this by developing software to control and monitor charge points and by providing facilities that give users insight into the use of the charge points. We also develop our own hardware platform, namely the charge points themselves.

  • An HBO or WO education, preferably (Technical) Computer Science, Embedded Systems, Electronics (TCK).

  • Knowledge of and experience with one or more programming languages (C++, Python); operating systems(FreeRTOS,Linux); electronics is a plus; at least you are not averse to reading a hardware schematic.

What do we offer?

  • Working in a market where sustainability is paramount.

  • With us, you'll be part of the team, get a tech-buddy for support and rotate through the development processes (code reviews, sprint planning, team outings).
