I'm working with a small company that produces electronic devices such as dataloggers and electronic sensors. I used to be a full time employee there but due to some personal problems I'm now working part time.
Recently they have decided that there is an urgent need to implement some of the SCADA protocols in their products. The guy who is writing microcontroller programs said that I do not have the necessary skill to do this (yeah he is not getting fired for that or anything).
Now they have come to me and said you must implement these protocols for us. As a C# programmer I googled a bit and saw some C# implementation of these protocols and I said that I can but I do not know how to write programs for microcontrollers. So they proposed that we use a mini PC with some special packaging to create a windows environment inside the device for my program to run.
Since I'm almost doing all of the work and there is almost no team effort here, should I demand a percentage of the money they are getting from these devices?
- We are in good terms.
- These devices are going to be way more expensive than our older devices and provide a huge market opportunity for them.
