Embedded Software Engineer

We are an award-winning, innovative company designing and building advanced technology to automate farming. By removing the need for fences and eliminating the manual nature of shifting animals, Halter aims to enable a new generation of more efficient, sustainable farming globally.

What will you be working on?

Our GPS enabled, solar powered collars are designed to remotely herd animals. These devices require robust, long-range wireless communication and conservative power consumption. They also require multiple levels of control software in order to record everything about the animal, understand it and act on this information accordingly. We use this to monitor stock health, feed, behaviour and emotion so that farmers can better understand and treat the needs of each animal.We are always pushing to use the latest advancements in technology and want you to be a part of this process. Your core duties will include developing and testing the device firmware, with a big focus on innovative thinking and moving fast. You’ll be given full responsibility for new features from concept to production code. Being a young, dynamic company, there is potential for a person in this role to have a big influence on Halter’s future direction.

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for big thinkers who know how to execute. We’re looking for people who are comfortable working in a dynamic, fast-paced environment where they will be challenged on a daily basis. To succeed you will need to be able to learn quickly and utilise your own initiative while working under pressure and to tight deadlines.
