    Qualcomm | Austin, TX, USA | Full Time | ONSITE | QEMU

    My team is looking to hire 2 software developers 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.

    If you have any questions, you can contact me directly (email addr is in my HN user link). If you like the idea of working on stuff like open source toolchains but QEMU is not your thing, let me know. There’s other opportunities too.

    It may be possible to make this position r_emote -- for the right candidate.

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

    We create the building blocks that devs and DevOps engineers can use to make launching in the cloud 10x better / faster / easier. We think of our work as creating a new paradigm for how DevOps can be done, one that leverages the insight that so many companies re-invent so much of the foundations that software engineers need to build and launch their apps. We work with AWS, K8s, Terraform, Go, Typescript, and React, and introduce new tech as needed. We’re a small team (~15 people), but our clients include Toyota, Adobe, TicketMaster, Verizon, and lots of startups.

    We are profitable, self-funded (no investors, no debt), pay salaries, equity, and bonuses according to transparent formulas, and are very focused on building a company we're proud of. We are 100% remote, with 2/3 of our team in the USA and 1/3 in Europe. We have company-wide in-person meetups every few months. We welcome applicants from all backgrounds.

    Our measure of a successful Grunt is (1) think like an owner, (2) make impact, (3) communicate effectively, (4) be a good person. If this sounds like you, we're hiring!
