PixMob is one of the world’s leaders in creating immersive experiences for live events. You might have seen 60,000 people lighting up at the Super Bowl. Or at a Coldplay concert. Our goal is to reinvent rituals to connect crowds. We call that ‘togetherness’.

We work with international artists, event organizers, sports teams and brands who care about creating unique & memorable experiences for their guests. PixMob is rooted in design and innovation. Alongside our customers, we reinvent immersive experiences through advanced wireless technologies engineered in-house, at our Montreal HQ. From rapid-prototyping to mass-manufacturing, we are fully vertically integrated to keep pushing the boundaries of the possible. We are leading the way with our sustainability efforts as we have been fighting against single-use plastics. We focus our efforts on using recycled or plant-based compostable materials and encouraging our clients to recycle our products.

The culture at PixMob is one based on... humility, relentlessness and cooperation. We operate in a competitive market and need to keep innovating to stay ahead. People who thrive have a deep curiosity to keep improving, learning and coaching others. Our clients are some of the most creative people in the industry and rightfully the most demanding.

As an Intermediate Firmware Designer, you will play a crucial role in developing and implementing firmware for various electronic devices and systems. Your expertise will contribute to the design, testing and optimization of firmware solutions that improve product functionality, performance and reliability.

• Firmware Design: Collaborate with multidisciplinary teams to define firmware requirements and specifications for electronic devices or systems. Design firmware architectures, algorithms and data structures that meet project objectives and technical requirements.
• Firmware Development: Implement firmware code using programming languages such as C, Python or assembly language, following coding standards and best practices. Write efficient and optimized code for real-time systems, device drivers, communication protocols and control algorithms.
• Testing and Debugging: Perform thorough testing and verification of firmware functionality, ensuring quality standards are met. Identify and resolve firmware-related bugs, issues, and performance bottlenecks using debugging tools and techniques.
• Documentation: Prepare detailed documentation of firmware designs, specifications, test plans and test results. Maintain accurate records and provide clear, concise reports to support project progress and troubleshooting efforts.
• Collaboration and Communication: Collaborate effectively with multidisciplinary teams, including hardware engineers, software developers and project managers. Communicate firmware design decisions, progress updates, and technical challenges clearly and concisely.
