About the Role:
Inscopix is the leader in miniature microscope-based brain imaging instrumentation. Inscopix is advancing the mechanistic understanding of the brain at the level of neural circuits and networks, but is also paving the way for next generation diagnostic treatments and therapeutics for brain disorders. The Company was recently acquired by Bruker (NASDAQ: BRKR) and continues to operate as a wholly-owned subsidiary.
We’re hiring a mid to senior level Embedded Software Engineer to design and develop the firmware that bridges our neuro-imaging hardware and data acquisition software. As our Embedded Software Engineer, you will create cool software features on a miniature microscope data acquisition platform and collaborate with an interdisciplinary team of neuroscientists, data scientists and engineers from data analysis, mechanical, optical and electrical engineering fields.
You will also work closely with product management to translate functional requirements into production level embedded systems software. You will get to work on significant product features and even create new products from scratch.
If you are excited about creating a solution for recording and interacting with freely behaving animals to empower discovery in brain health, this could be the right opportunity for you.
Here’s what you’ll work on:
- Ownership of design, build, test, and troubleshoot hardware, firmware, and embedded software for data acquisition electronics and embedded imaging systems.
- Work with continuous integration, verification, validation and testing of customer facing software releases.
- Collaborate on production software for hardware calibration and verification.
We’re looking for someone that has experience in embedded software engineering which includes:
- BS/MS (or equivalent experience).
- 3+ years of industry experience.
- Experience developing software for embedded platform in C/C++.
- Experience developing Linux device drivers and firmware.
- Experience working with embedded hardware interfaces (I2C, SPI) and protocols (USB, network, and MIPI etc.).
- Familiarity with multimedia frameworks (Gstreamer pipelines, plugins, applications, and advanced video codecs).
- Good understanding of hardware-accelerated image processing pipelines (OpenCV, OpenGL, CUDA) and data manipulation.
- Good understanding of Real-Time Operating System (RTOS).
This is a hybrid role, based in Mountain, View, CA.
Inscopix is committed to diversity and equitable compensation practices across our organization which includes an offer process that is comfortable, transparent and unbiased. Rather than candidates wondering if they should negotiate, we offer the highest salary we can based on our current salary bands, the employee’s ability to perform in their role, and their future team members compensation.

The salary band for this role (based on the location posted and the level of candidate we’re anticipating hiring) is $130,000 - $160,0000. After you complete your initial interviews, we’ll share with you what you can expect from a potential offer and answer any questions you have regarding compensation. No question is off limits because we believe transparency leads to an enjoyable hiring experience for everyone involved.
