Job Description
Our Multiport Platform software team is expanding to meet the needs of next-gen flagship product development. We're looking for a high energy, talented, individual to contribute broadly to our Operating Systems, BSP and Hardware device driver software stack. It's important to emphasize that while you'll be designing custom kernel and hardware abstraction layers between the OS and application software, you are in your heart, an integrator.

When the system doesn't function as expected, you see the Venn diagram and proactively seek solutions - pulling together intersecting people/groups as needed. To be successful, you must possess a strong sense of shared responsibility and shared reward - there are no passengers on this ship, only crew.

Roles and Responsibilities:

Design, develop and continuously enhance our customized POSIX and bare-metal operating systems ecosystem. You'll have ownership over areas such as build toolchain, kernels, root filesystem, bootloader, device drivers, and BSP for a wide variety of hardware boards.

Collaborate with Hardware engineers to bring-up new, custom PCA boards.

Implement Security hardening features in our Operating System software.

Bring up & integrate auxiliary peripherals such as touchscreens, wireless chargers, SSDs, USB devices, and FPGA firmware.

Diagnose and resolve operating system issues pertaining to functionality, profiling, performance, and stability.
Skill/Job Requirements:

  • Approaches any challenge with an eager, willing, and can-do attitude.
  • A natural communicator with high attention to detail

Experience in building and maintaining various device drivers and bootloaders.

Expertise in C or C++ programming languages.

Experience in developing software for bare-metal, Linux, or QNX operating systems.

Shell-script based development using bash and/or python.

Experience with two or more of the following peripherals: UART, I2C, USB, SPI, CAN, GPIO, PCIe.

Minimum, 7 years industry experience developing and supporting embedded systems.

Bachelors or Master's degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering or related engineering discipline.

Nice to Haves:

Can understand and review board schematics.

Experience packaging custom Linux distributions and toolchains with Yocto.

Familiarity with build scripts such as cmake or ninja.

Experience with development on NVIDIA Jetson System-On-Module (SOM) and Xilinx-based Hardware Platforms.
