Hi Polorise
That sounds like an interesting position, although I don't have any embedded experience

Yeah, that's why I use the "But" :-), since Logitech is a big name isn't it?

Lock :-)

Looking at this requirement : "EPF degree or equivalent in embedded software or electrical engineering", I would say that there is virtually no Degree in "Embedded stuff". The only thing "embedded" here is the experience.

In IT, one can quickly grasp the knowledge of one field if he has done some thing similar, and I myself don't have any "embedded" experience but I was hired in an "Embedded" company.

Don't play with me :-)

And the reason why I reply to Polorise's post is to pop his topic up to the front, since so far no one has answered this :-)

Re: Open position with Logitech

it's not up to me, it's up to Polorise. You might want to PM him a CV.

Do spell his name right though, he does get offended about that.

Hi Lock :-)
I'm happy with my current job, in the current "embedded" company.
What I did in this topic is just to pop his topic up, one action of supporting his post, which is one of my forum habits :-)

@Spell: I do spell his nick correctly.

Lock, I find out that you are a forum addicted person :-)
