ミドクラについて

高速分散DB「ダイナモ」の開発者やアマゾン初期のアーキテクトを担った天才エンジニアとともに20101月に真のグローバルテックスタートアップとして産声をあげたミドクラは、20196よりソニーグループの一員として、ミドクラの持つ分散コンピューティング技術/仮想化技術、ソニーの持つ先進センサー技術との融合を目指して、GAFA対抗の次世代Edge AI Platform構築に挑んでいます。

東京/バルセロナ/ローザンヌに研究開発拠点を持ち、元アマゾン/グーグル/マイクロソフトなどの腕に覚えのあるエンジニアが世界中から参集(国籍は10ヵ国以上)、世界最先端を行く技術企業との協業やローザンヌ工科大学等の研究機関とのコラボレーションなどを通じて、日々ビジョン達成に向けて邁進をしている真にグローバルな企業です。

なぜやるのか

全てが繋がるIoTの時代、ビッグデータ解析によるAIの時代と言われて久しいですが、AIアプリケーションの開発は一朝一夕にはいかない多大な労力を要するものとなっています。一方、企業においては、自社が保有する、あるいは創り出すデータを価値あるものとして、AI利用によるサービスビジネスモデルへの転換を目指した、デジタルトランスフォーメーション(DX)が花盛りです。

しかしながら、現状ではそのビジョン達成に向けてのシステムは、クラウド一択という状況にあり、IoT化/DX化が進めば進む程、クラウドの巨人GAFAへ付加価値が集中することとなります。

このGAFAへの一局集中という現状を打破、ユーザー企業の覇権を取り戻すために、またクラウドインフラの活用のみでは提供できない新たな付加価値を提供するために、ミドクラは折からのクラウドコンピューティングからエッジコンピューティングの流れに乗って、ローコード/ノーコード開発環境の進展、RISC-Vなど新たなエッジデバイスにおけるOSの標準化動向を睨みながら、革新的な分散型Edge AI Platformの提供を目指しています。

これにより、AI開発者とAIオペレーターはあらゆるセンシングデータを入力値として、より簡単にエッジデバイスを活用したAIアプリケーションを開発/実装/運用することができるようになるとともに、従来はバッチ処理に頼らざるを得なかったAI学習/推論をよりリアルタイムに行うことができる、すなわち映画の世界の中のようなリアルタイムのイベント駆動型エッジアプリケーションを容易に手に入れることができるようになります。

Job description

Senior Software Engineer (Linux & Embedded)

The Senior Embedded Software Engineer will steer the development of the next-generation edge device software that brings AI onto the IoT devices equipped with various cutting-edge sensors. The software, which cooperates with cloud platforms, solves challenging problems in the world of IoT such as centrally managing massively distributed devices, deploying and upgrading applications remotely, securing data end-to-end, and optimizing the placement of workloads onto a set of heterogeneous devices. The designed edge devices should work in ultra-low-power and they are subject to several constraint conditions such as high/low ambient temperatures and limited energy budget from battery power or network connectivity. The devices integrate tightly with various sensors/accelerators to reduce power consumption in order to offer an optimal solution for constrained environments like Smart City or Smart Retail among others.

We are looking for a highly motivated and hands-on individual who is willing to learn new technologies and innovate and has strong analytical, problem-solving, and communication skills, as well as the ability to take on multiple responsibilities at once.  Must be able to work in a fast-paced environment with teams distributed around the globe.

Responsibilities

  • Develop the firmware in high quality and on schedule to help achieve company business goals.
  • Develop Edge Platform Software independent from various RTOS available in the market.
  • Design and implement dynamic software loading systems over the network.
  • Design and implement highly concurrent and efficient software components.
  • Test and debug.
  • Interact with the product team to gather requirements, participate in architect design solutions, provide means to deploy and support our software.
  • Provide guidance to junior engineers.
  • Work with HR, eventually, to help grow the engineering team.

Required skills and experience

  • 10+ years of relevant software development experience.
  • Strong development experience in C/C++, Python and Shell scripting.
  • Familiarity with POSIX standards (libraries, compliant OS).
  • Familiarity with UNIX-like environments for development.
  • Socket programming experience.
  • Concurrent and asynchronous programming.
  • Experience in containerization (Docker).
  • Experience in IoT and remote management of devices.
  • Knowledge of End-to-end security architecture.
  • On-Chip debugger experience (GDB/LLDB).
  • Experience with Version Control tools (Git).
  • Strong analytical skills.
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills.

Desired skills and experience

  • Experience developing in NuttX RTOS.
  • Cloud technologies such as Kubernetes, Azure, AWS, etc.
  • Dynamic software loading on RTOS.
  • Software Testing Framworks: PyTest, CMock, etc.
  • Software development in testing and
  • Knowledge about L2-L7 network protocols including Ethernet, IP, TCP, HTTP.

Additional skills and experience as a plus

  • Debugging peripheral buses and GPIOs using an oscilloscope/logic analyzer.
  • Knowledge about electronic circuits to read schematic sheets and utilize for debugging.
  • Strong system architecture design experience in embedded software. e.g. RTOS selection, power modes and system clock management.
  • Deep knowledge of controlling hardware inside/outside of MCU and for designing services based on such hardware functionality.
  • Experience designing software that under memory-constrained settings such as tiny MCUs.
  • Experience designing and developing peripheral drivers such as DMAC, I2C, SPI, some specific IP.
