Questions about C++/Embedded developer recruiting

1. Are C++/Embedded developers hard to find?

They are. Although such job openings are fewer than others in the industry, the candidates here are always highly qualified specialists with narrow experience. To find this kind of talent, you need a recruiter team to monitor the labour market continuously.
Remote work would be difficult because of the nature of the tasks these specialists deal with—they need a specially outfitted workplace complete with tools such as debug boards, adapters, and soldering equipment.
There are no openings like this on the Ukrainian market. Considering the complexity of projects and special skills they require, employers usually look for experienced (over 4 years of experience) professionals with a specific skill set.
Specialists like these are usually attracted by the promise of not only see but to hold in their hands the results of their work. Often, special qualifications are required to fulfil their responsibilities successfully, e.g., many professionals are trained as engineers and additionally pick up programming. C++/Embedded developers possess narrow and rare expertise. Considering how high the demand for them is, getting one into your team would be an unconventional task.
