The main responsibilities of the Engineer will be to develop user interfaces for networked embedded devices, including 1) web interfaces on a cloud server, 2) smart device (phone, tablet) applications that directly communicate and interface a network of embedded devices, and 3) web interfaces hosted at an edge gateway node that can be directly access by users through Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. The role involves design and implementation of the user interfaces as well as their testing and deployment in laboratory and field trials, implementation of statistical and analytical software libraries for data processing on the server backend from spatially distributed sensor systems. The Engineer will also assist with the specification and implementation of scalable, low power wireless networks.
