Come and work with us!¶
Our goal is to help people build their microcontroller prototypes faster then ever, so we're developing all the novel hardware, software, tools, libraries and web infrastructure that make up the mbed rapid prototyping platform to do just that.
The mbed platform hasn't been around long and we're a small team, but it is already proving a great success so are looking for some really talented people who share our vision, to join the mbed team and make it even better!
We're a small team and we need stand out people, so you need to stand out. Point us at your website or stuff you've done. Code or port something amazing to mbed that will demonstrate your skills. Tell us your ideas and how you'd make mbed better. Show us something that makes it clear you are the right person for the job!
Who are we looking for?¶
We are looking for:
- 6-12 month Web Developer engineering internship for 2012
You would join us to work in the mbed office in the beautiful city of Cambridge, UK (note that you must already be eligible to work in the UK to apply!)

See http://mbed.org for what we've achieved so far.
We are bringing the ease of development that desktop and web programming has enjoyed for years to developers working in the world of physical, microcontroller driven devices. These are the devices that really power the world around us, including anything from cars, robots, smart buildings and smart cities to toys, musical instruments, and home gadgets. You will help to build the mbed.org online rapid prototyping infrastructure that allows embedded developers to create and collaborate on the next generation of intelligent devices.
