Key Responsibilities:

  • Firmware Development: Design, develop, and debug firmware for embedded systems within our product range, including GigaCore switches and LumiNode processors. This can include working on low-level communications protocols (f.e. SPI, I2C, UART, …) up to advanced networking protocols (IGMP, sACN, AVB, …); it ranges from bit-banging on an SPI bus, to ping-ponging on a websocket.
  • Collaboration: Work closely with hardware engineers to optimize performance and ensure the seamless integration of firmware and hardware components.
  • Quality Assurance: Assist the test team in defining test specifications, as well as developing and maintaining regression tests.
  • Continuous Improvement: Participate in code reviews and contribute to the enhancement of development processes and best practices.
  • Documentation: Create and maintain detailed documentation of firmware design and development processes.


  • Educational Background: You hold a master’s degree in computer science or have proven equivalent experience.
  • Experience: Experience in software design, testing and debugging, preferably in an embedded Linux environment.
  • Technical Skills: Proficiency in C is essential for this role. Knowledge of Rust is welcome, or at least eagerness to learn and use it.
  • Soft Skills: Strong problem-solving abilities, attention to detail, excellent communication and teamwork skills.

Preferred Skills:

  • Networking: Experience with network protocols is highly desirable. This not only includes implementing them, but also analyzing their behavior.
  • Scripting Languages: Knowledge of Python or Bash for scripting and automation.
  • Version Control: Proficiency with version control systems such as Git.
  • Scrum: Experience working in a Scrum team is also a plus.

Our offer:

We offer you a challenging role in a fast-growing Belgian company with a well-known reputation in the worldwide entertainment industry.  You will become part of an agile team of developers and engineers, creating the most sophisticated technology for the AV industry. With an intensive training program, we also encourage you to continue to grow in your career and develop your talents. This role comes with a permanent employment contract, a competitive salary, a comprehensive extralegal package and a bunch of fun colleagues.
