The ideal IoT Software Engineer for your company

The scope of IoT Software Engineers is diverse and exciting. They work at the front lines of digital transformation, automation, innovation and connect devices, systems, departments, service teams and customers with real-time data, sensors and predictions. They are making supply chains more transparent, products better and customers happier. And the pace of the Internet of Things is accelerating: while in 2016 there were around 4.7 billion devices connected to the internet, current forecasts predict 46 billion IoT devices by the end of 2021.

PALTRON is recognised for its in-depth understanding of the market and its strong network with over 770.000 digital and IT experts. Using our KPI-driven executive search process, we find the best candidates on the market for you and your strategy.

The IoT market will be worth over $500 billion by the end of 2021

The future that will be realised thanks to IoT solutions is just as exciting as the scope of tasks of IoT Software Engineers. Whether smart home or smart factory - connectivity will make our everyday lives and work easier through highly efficient and smart systems that IoT Software Engineers develop and implement. They design the technical architecture for IoT applications and offer extensive expertise in supporting the IT team that implements the architecture. This includes creating the documentation, handling and processing data, designing, programming, testing software and systems, and configuring infrastructure components.

Accordingly, the technical requirements are high and entail many years of experience in the IT sector as well as in software development. This includes experience in handling methods for data exchange (e.g. XML, JSON, RESTful or SOAP), databases, programming in one or more languages for IoT applications such as Java, Python, C++, C#, Javascript, Scala, etc. plus architectural experience in system integration and platform integration and, last but not least, cyber-physical systems (CPS). Expertise in web services and cloud technologies is also in high demand.

Serving as an interface with a wide variety of stakeholders also requires written and oral communication skills in dealing with technical and non-technical audiences. This also includes interpersonal skills to deal with all types of people and build trust and integrity. In addition to teamwork skills, leadership skills are also characteristics of IoT Software Engineers in terms of team building and organisational skills.

At PALTRON, it is extremely important to us to incorporate cultural fit as part of our innovative recruiting process, in addition to the hard skills of the candidates. This enables us to find the ideal candidate who fits your company and team.
