Ask HN: Who is hiring? (May 2022)

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on

Our great sponsors
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • SonarLint - Clean code begins in your IDE with SonarLint
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • 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 | 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.

    All of the team lives locally around Austin. Parts of the team work remotely, and come into the office ~2 days/wk. It may be possible to make this position r_emote-and-not-living-near-Austin -- for the right candidate.

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