Good understanding of computer architecture
We consider a plus previous experience in embedded software related to security and cryptography
Strong willingness to deliver high-quality software products
English (spoken and written)
interacting with real embedded engineers and work and during coffee breaks - attn: involves laughing, from time to time;
learning about a modern processor architecture;
writing embedded C code, perhaps a bit of assembly language;
brushing up on python skills for automating;
understanding how to program in software a hardware communication peripheral;
getting skilled in using a debugger probe to study bugs and profiling information for embedded target device;
finally figuring out why architecturing software is a must before jumping on heedlessly writing code.
