Embedded Engineer for water tech startup

With the vision of “providing clean water for the world” Stockholm Water Technology AB (SWT) has developed a membrane-free technology that can treat a vast array of contaminated waters starting with desalination and deionization. SWT combines nanotechnology-enabled materials with a smart engineering design to enable competitive and versatile products which benefit both the user and the environment, lead to cost and water savings in addition to giving the user the ability to define the output water quality. Currently, our fundamental technology, as well as our core product is in place and now it is about getting the first commercial fully-packed product into the market.

What have we done so far?

Over the past 2 years: 

We have built a team of 6 employees with concrete experience in business development, system integration, nanotechnology-based materials evaluation, hardware & software architecture, product and solution development, and marketing. 

  • We have transitioned the technology from a core product (MVP) to a full-fledged mini-process plant and have generated substantial interest with early adopters in the home and industrial segments.

  • Generated revenue through sales, which is expanding through collaboration with multiple local and international partners.

  • Secured over 15 MSEK in funding and grants and recently completed a SEED Round.

  • All set to take the company forward and introduce the product to the market just after the summer.

What’s our next challenge? 

We have multiple applications of our solution and see several market opportunities and different potential business models and strategies. As we are at the stage of ramping up commercialization, we need a product-oriented embedded engineer, who can take current embedded architecture and convert it into a mouldable and expandable solution and look at it from a functionality perspective. The next phase will involve in-depth interactions with actual customers to bring the product to a form that fills the current solution gaps in the market and offer product features that bring substantial value to our customers. 

Your challenge

We’re looking for a team player who is keen on using their skills to improve the product and their abilities. We can overlook experience in exchange for the right attitude and a focused mind capable of managing a product life cycle. As one of the initial team members, you would need to take responsibilities in addition to your general tasks, which will be recognized and aptly rewarded. Tasks will include: 

  • Product embedded software architecture and source code

  • Involvement with embedded hardware design

  • System installations and commissioning, troubleshooting

  • Support in scaling production and developing test rig equipment.

  • Able to take ownership and accountability for the embedded component of the product.


We are seeking a highly motivated candidate and we expect you to be entrepreneurial with a result-focused mindset and a strong drive to take the product to the next phase. You will need to take ownership of the embedded side of the product and bring it to a form that is reliable and highly versatile in its application. SWT deals with local and international customers and hence fluency in English is necessary. Swedish is an added advantage. Experience in complete product life cycle experience would be looked upon favorably but is not necessary. Typical skills required are:

  • Software languages (Python, C, C++)

  • Database engineering and set up (SQL, AWS)

  • Hardware printed circuit board (PCB) design

  • Embedded communication protocols (Modbus, Ethernet, USH, I2C, SPI, CAN)

  • Data communication security implementation (data encoding, key generation)

  • Being able to attend physically at our office/workshop in Stockholm

What we offer

We offer an opportunity to join a start-up with unique technology and many market opportunities, where you can be part of creating a solid impact in an area vital for the world. Would you like to take part in this journey and shape yours and our future? We are seeking someone that wants to join a high aspiring start-up in a key position with all the risks and rewards associated with it. We want to find the perfect match for the team and therefore believe there has to be a positive energy in the team for this to succeed.
