You have a very strong theoretical and practical background in firmware development. This likely means you spent several years learning about search functions, data containers, and other algorithms and patterns to solve common problems. You know very well how to use a debugger, setup build tools, etc. You understand (through experience) the importance of writing clear and maintainable code. You can hold the behavior of complex systems in your head and reason through them. Quickly learning what you need from the internet or peers is your forte, as you have a strong desire to perfect your craft.
We are especially interested in selecting a candidate that excels in clear and effective communication, both verbally and in writing. Excellently written specifications communicate your clever solutions to the rest of the world. Meetings you lead are informative, and everyone leaves with a common goal. You are excited to work on a team to build something bigger than you could do by yourself.
