  • QEMU

    Official QEMU mirror. Please see for how to submit changes to QEMU. Pull Requests are ignored. Please only use release tarballs from the QEMU website.

    Qualcomm | Hyderabad, India | Full Time | ONSITE | QEMU

    My team is looking to hire a software developer to help us design and extend QEMU support [1] for the Hexagon DSP [2]. We're looking for candidates who have experience coding in C, C++ or Rust* and who aren't afraid of rolling up their sleeves and poring over disassembled code. This particular architecture is a bit more challenging than most, because it's a bit unique. It's a VLIW [3], so it's a great opportunity to learn about an interesting architecture. Millions of Hexagon DSPs are out there, most are found in Snapdragon SoCs for Android phones and more!

    We collaborate a lot with Open Source communities like QEMU, LLVM [4], the Linux kernel [5], and more. I love being able to work on Open Source software at my day job.

    You can contact me directly (email addr is in my HN user link). If you don't have experience with QEMU - don't worry! Most of us didn't have any experience with it until recently, too.

    The rest of the team you'd work with lives mostly in EU, US.

    * Rust experience may serve the role well but we don’t (yet) have any product software in Rust.

  • code-challenge

    SerpApi code challenge

    I went through their hiring process, the video interview went well even though it was with one Dev (pretty random). There was common interest and a technical fit. I was given a trivial code test that I assumed was only a formality. I then created a pull request. I had to follow-up for weeks before hearing back from them and the only thing that they ended up doing was to give my pull request some thumbs up. They since disappeared even though I reached out for feedback multiple times.

    I suspect that they are doing this non stop even though they don't have open positions and maybe from time to time they hire based on their workload. Look at all the pull requests ( Lots of those are good quality, but they have been on "Ask HN: Who is hiring?" for months.
