We are creating real-world metrology and advanced residential energy management automation systems using Ubuntu 18.04, embedded systems, USB, FreeRTOS, Rasbian( RPi 3 and Zero), Android and Windows 10, so there there’s lots of new hardware and software for you to learn and gain expertise.

If you are currently an unemployed or under-employed professional Software Developer or Technologist (including recent Graduates, immigrants and 50+ persons) and have a background relevent to some or even all of the list below, or you want to move into the embedded software industry, we should at least talk about mutual interests and possible collaboration.

  • Software integration of sensors (such as pressure, temperature, humidity, light level, colour).
  • Any background in developing test and measurement or scientific laboratory equipment.

French is not required, nor is a valid security clearance. We do require business and technical competency in English (which may be somewhat less than social fluency) if your native language is something else.

Far too many company websites state “…only qualified candidates will be contacted”, and your communication disappears into a black hole. That does not happen at PiXCL!  Everyone who responds will receive the courtesy of a personal reply, even if this is a “thanks, but no thanks”.

Contact us today with a brief description (a full resume can wait) of your relevent background, why working with PiXCL sounds interesting, and of course your contact details.

Start-up company workers have to be flexible and ready to learn and apply new technologies, often a major attraction for many.  We do try to avoid rapidly changing priorities and product feature creep by focusing on our primary goal: creating the products our market demands. We strive to provide the best Technical Support possible. It also means that financial rewards for everyone including the founders are minimal to start.

PiXCL is located in Gatineau, Quebec, Canada.

If you read down to this point, you might be interested in our Developer Program.


Personnel placement agencies please note:

We do not require third party assistance in hiring, unless we have executed a specific written contract with your organisation requesting such assistance.
