Sr. IT Engineer (Direct-Hire)

Portland, OR

52 Limited is a digital staffing agency with an industry-leading focus on the creative + technology space. We exclusively place tech and creative talent in direct-hire, contract-to-hire, and contract roles with our clients in Portland, Seattle, and San Francisco.

Global Digital Development group works with internal engineering groups, external vendors, and the open-source community to identify and integrate emerging technologies into future vehicle product lines. Every day we work to close the gap between fast-paced, highly available cloud services and the multifaceted challenges of a rolling, embedded platform. We work closely with embedded systems tools, silicon-to-pixel CI/CD toolchains, and higher-level languages to craft and build initial versions of production software that can be scaled out to other offices and external vendors for completion. 

We believe the world of web services and data-driven applications can advise how embedded systems need to evolve. We are working to extend our customers’ user experience in modern portable devices to include their vehicles. 

We are based in the Portland, Oregon office.
