Join a team recognized for leadership, innovation and diversity

The future is what you make it.

When you join Honeywell, you become a member of our global team of thinkers, innovators, dreamers and doers who make the things that make the future.

That means changing the way we fly, fueling jets in an eco-friendly way, keeping buildings smart and safe and even making it possible to breathe on Mars.

Working at Honeywell isn’t just about developing cool things. That’s why all of our employees enjoy access to dynamic career opportunities across different fields and industries.

Are you ready to help us make the future?

As a Principal Embedded Systems Engineer you will work closely with a diverse team of scientists, engineers, and technicians to develop and commercialize high-performance fuel cell power generation technologies for remote and autonomous applications.
The ideal candidate has a solid understanding of embedded software design methodologies, environments, and architectures for electromechanical control systems (and ideally for hydrogen fuel cell and battery charge/management systems). Thrives on and enjoys problem solving, a hands-on approach and a dynamic work environment. Personal strengths include well-structured problem solving, risk-taking, attention to detail, written and verbal communications and team development skills.
You will be leading and developing firmware from the hardware to the applications layer, and as such a thorough understanding of digital microprocessor, peripheral, communications, and analog/digital conversion electronics is imperative. A working understanding of both point to point and multipoint Wide Area Network (WAN) and Local Area Network (LAN) interfaces, protocols, and services is helpful.

You will manage projects, coordinate across multiple organizations and build deep technical knowledge. You will participate in developing new concepts and writing proposals to government funding agencies to secure project funding. You will work in an agile environment to solve complex problems with speed and creativity. This role reports to the Advanced Alternative Power section within Honeywell Aerospace Advanced Technology.
