proteanTecs is a dynamic fast-paced start-up company, transforming the way the reliability of electronics is achieved. In a world where machines are gaining immense responsibility over our lives, sudden failure is not an option.

We have developed a cloud-based platform, which combines data created in chip-embedded Agents (IPs), with machine learning, to predict faults before they become failures. Our solutions provide unprecedented insights throughout the value chain, from Chip Vendors to System Vendors and Digital Service Providers.

The company was founded by seasoned industry veterans, including three former founders of Mellanox Technologies, with deep knowledge and experience in the electronics industry, and is backed by worldwide leading investors.

We encourage you to apply for this exciting opportunity and play a leading role at Israel’s most promising startup. (By Globes – הסטארט-אפים המבטיחים של 2022 – גלובס (globes.co.il))

As a Senior Firmware Engineer at proteanTecs you will lead and own the firmware that makes up the Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) of the proteanTecs hardware-IP. The firmware is used to make the proteanTecs health & performance monitoring solution accessible on edge devices (such as IC testers, data-centers, cars, mobile phones) as well as through the cloud.
