Hello World! We are beyond excited to secure our first round of investment and are looking for the right people to join our team.


We want to make an impact

Tendertec was founded two years ago to tackle two challenges that our societies are facing today: enabling a healthy and active lifestyle and improving the sustainability and efficiency of healthcare.

We are purpose-driven

We are developing the next generation of personalised social and health care technologies that aim to improve people’s lives and safeguard their access to affordable health and care services.

We are a team

We believe that people are Tendertec’s biggest competitive advantage: we are creating a people-first culture and are heavily invested in the success of those who join us in our journey.


Tendertec’s engineering team is growing rapidly and so is our company. We are setting up offices in Cardiff, Wales and Athens, Greece and we need a talented self-starter to develop the underlying software of Tendertec’s embedded sensing system.

In our growing engineering team, you’ll analyse the product requirements, investigate, prototype and deliver innovativeand feasible system solutions for Tendertec’s embedded products in collaboration with our multidisciplinary engineering team. You’ll be a driver for positive change to Tendertec’s team, processes and technology.

The main focus of our engineering team is on thoughtfulness, design thinking and code quality. We value transparency and believe in fostering an inclusive, collaborative, helpful team environment. We're always looking for ways to do better for our customers, the product, and for the team.


You’ll join a small, rapidly expanding, team of self-starting innovators and problem solvers with support from leading VCs and advisors.

We are a people-first tech company. We consider engineering quality of paramount value and will always look for the most rigorous solution to a problem. As a team, we strive to constantly improve our knowledge of infrastructure and systems, and remove any blockers that may appear. We believe in supporting each of our team members, love to pitch in when problems arise and give great peer feedback to help each other grow.


At Tendertec, we are a bunch of people with different backgrounds, culture and nationalities. That said, there are some characteristics we always look for - self-starters who are agile, responsive, accountable and ready to hit the ground running.

Are you a self-starter with a proven track-record in commercial embedded systems development? Do you have appetite for trying out new ideas and innovations?

In this role, you will be responsible for the embedded system architecture and development of new features, system integration and unit testing and the development of algorithms for sensor data extraction and processing. You will be free to run experiments and build prototypes with unique approaches for problems. You will collaborate with the Electronic Engineering team and contribute to design reviews and product documentation.

We firmly believe extraordinary people can come from a wide range of places – but we wouldn’t be surprised if the person who gets this role has:

  • Bachelor Degree in Electronic Engineering, Computer Science, or equivalent
  • 2+ years’ experience with Embedded systems development in C/C++
  • Extensive experience with serial communication protocols: I2C, SPI, and UART
  • Extensive experience is writing and integrating drivers for chipset (Power Management, Sensors, etc)

Nice to Haves: Experience with LTE modules, Microcontrollers, Zigbee and/or BLE.


Tendertec builds personalised technology that cares and improves people’s quality of life by enabling them to access data-driven healthcare services that support them in remaining healthy, independent and safe. Our team strives to set a new bar for healthcare technology with modern, well-designed, intuitive, real-time and date-driven solutions.

We have been awarded the GE Healthcare “Disruptive Product” Award in December 2018, and have just completed our first funding round.

We are proud to be an equal opportunity workplace committed to building a team culture that celebrates diversity and inclusion. We believe that everyone at Tendertec should have the same opportunity.
