Over deze functie

You’ll be working mostly on two projects. First of all Venus OS, their own embedded Linux OS which is shipped in our GX Product range. A GX device lies at the heart of a Victron Energy power system; providing monitoring, and operating as the communication centre of the installation. All the other system components such as inverter/chargers, solar chargers, and batteries are connected to it. The GX device ensures that they all work in harmony. Monitoring can be carried out locally, as wel as remotely via the VRM Portal. Many parts of Venus OS are open source; and as such more in depth information can be read on Github Wiki.

The other project, VictronConnect, is an App. Written in Qt 5 and using QML for its UI. Customers and installers use it to monitor, configure, diagnose and firmware update their products. Wirelessly; via a Bluetooth LE connection as well as over USB.

Over jou

The flat organization gives a lot of freedom but also requires a high level of professionalism and autonomy. You need to be a professional developer; able to adapt to the existing style of projects. Also, you need to be able to work without detailed functional or technical requirements. New work typically starts to take shape as an idea, problem, or technology driven opportunity. You need to be able to take those ideas further; and convert them into details as well as implement.

In Venus OS you will grow to be responsible for certain parts of it. From concept and architectural choices up to testing and finally tagging your release. The Venus OS maintainer will then accept and add it to the next Venus build. VictronConnect works a bit different as its one binary. You are expected to make patches such that they can be accepted smoothly.

Main technologies used within these projects:

  • C, C++, QT, QML, Python, Linux, sh, Git, CI/CD
  • Canbus, RS-485, TTL / Serial communication, MQTT, ModbusRU & TCP
