Cloud System Tools Developer

As a Cloud System Tools Developer, you will be responsible for developing and releasing cloud-based tools that will be used for configuration and support of Alif’s MCU/MPU products. You will work closely with other fellow developers and system architects as well as 3rd party developers to define and develop MCU/MPU device configuration tools. These tools will run on cloud-based systems like AWS or Azure and will assist Alif’s customers with the device configuration process.   These configuration tools consist a user interface frontend running in the cloud that allows the customer to select and visualize their device settings. These settings are passed along to a back end application running in the cloud that processes the users selections and creates multiple output files that are downloaded by the Alif customer and used to configure /program their MCU/MPU device. As a Cloud System Tool developer, you must be familiar with cloud-based application development, both with common frontend UI development frameworks and with backend application development that works with database / data file frameworks. You will be working with and help to manage a 3rd party developer developing these Cloud based tools. You will also work with Alif marketing and Alif customers in order integrate market feedback on the device configuration requirements.
