Davis offers a competitive salary with a full benefits package and a friendly work environment. We are conveniently located in Hayward with easy access to the East Bay and Peninsula via the San Mateo Bridge.

We are not a mega-company where your relationships with your colleagues are via email or across the conference table. We are a company where we eat lunch with the engineers who are designing the next improvement to our products. At Davis, if you wonder how a product is being assembled, you walk out on the production floor and watch it being assembled. It’s a company where we talk about current events with purchasing staff and take break time walks around the block with software coders. It’s a place where each person really matters, where you can make a real difference, and where we value the balance between work and family.

Key Responsibilities

  • Design and implement new product features.
  • Debug and maintain existing code.
  • Work with team members to determine optimum design and implementation strategies.
  • Participate in peer code reviews
  • Work closely with hardware engineers to bring up new boards.
  • Document designs and production procedures.
  • Assist the Technical Support Department with customer issues.
  • Work closely with quality assurance in identifying bugs and building fixes.
