Thankyou for your interest in Current. We'll be in touch with you shortly.

What will you do

As a Current Electronics/Embedded Engineer, you will work closely with our engineering and product team to build out our product and bring it to patients and healthcare professionals. You will contribute at every stage of the product life cycle, deploy it out into the wild and see its impact on real people. You will work on new hardware/Firmware features as well as on existing issues and bugs. Our IoT software tech stack extends all the way from the patient to the healthcare professional with custom hardware running embedded code on the patient's arm and network protocols reliably handling sensor data transmission. A data pipeline that constantly seeks health deterioration patterns and Micro-services that power mobile apps, visualisations and push notifications to support clinical decisions

Technologies We Use
Altium Designer
ARM Cortex M4
Wireless Charging (Qi)
WiFi/BLE/SSL/TLS
FreeRTOS
C/C#/Python
