70/hr Modern C++ (Embedded). 6-12 Months. 80% Telecommute LTE. Minneapolis, MN. (L-3869) (A)


Are you a Modern C++ engineer?  Have a focus on software for medical systems and/or regulatory environments?  Looking a job up in the Minneapolis, MN market and/or one you can be remote on?  Then this gig might be of interest to you.

In short, the end client here is a medical device manufacturer.   They have the need for a Modern C++ developer ideally w/ history of working on embedded systems and/or medical devices.  Role would work on new products as well as support existing ones.  Ideal candidate will have history w/ open source tools in a regulated environment setting.  You can see the full list of target skills below.

So, if this sounds like you, APPLY TODAY!!!  

** During COVID work restrictions, all work is being done remote.  However, once end client clears teams to return to work onsite full time candidate that areable to do the same (be onsite in 2-4 week grace period) will be given greater weight in screening although 80-90% remote candidates will be considered (occasional onsite). ** 

** Due to client limitations they only want to consider candidates that can be direct (w2) employees to us.  No subs or 1099s.  If you are a vendor and find us a w2 that is selected we can pay you a markup on the side as an option. ** 

** Currently team is 10+.  50% complete on project.  Currently working to finalize hardware and architecture. **

** Non-local candidates will be expected to cover expenses for onsite travel.  Historically, this is just 1-2 days at the start for onboarding.  **

    04/14/21 15:48 PM . Tim Bauer. Checking w/ client on if non-local is possible (they seem to be drifting to local only after saying remote could work).

    04/08/21 13:27 PM . Tim Bauer. Still on hold. Waiting on feedback on last submission to hiring manager (about a week back). They are slow to respond so just might be a lag.

    03/31/21 22:12 PM . Tim Bauer. Client has strongly screened out candidates that couldn't articulate differences between various versions of C++ (v11, v14, v17, etc.). That coupled with lack of regulated/medical probably wouldn't warrant going further (if better depth w/ versions maybe).

    03/31/21 20:48 PM . Tim Bauer. Agent indicates no medical/regulated 'might' work if candidate is strong enough.
