  • Conduct reviews with technical peers to ensure that design guidelines are achieved.
  • Write code and complete programming according to specifications.
  • Create and execute automated unit tests.
  • Identify, analyze and resolve complex software inadequacies.
  • Provide project estimates for requirement, design, implementation, and test efforts.


  • Strong C programming skills, especially on resource-constrained devices and platforms
  • Knowledge of POSIX based operating system architectures
  • Understanding of how user level processes work across each layer of the operating system, including process and thread life cycles, memory management, system calls, and inter-process communication
  • Understanding of operating system concepts, including scheduling, concurrency and resource management
  • Understanding of multi-cpu, multithreaded architectures and real-time systems
  • Strong problem solving and debugging skills
  • Excellent communication skills including verbal, written, and interpersonal
  • High degree of motivation and ability to work both independently and in a team environment

Additional Assets

  • System-level QNX and BB10 experience – developing resource managers, build/development tools, etc.
  • Experience writing software to standards such as ISO26262 or IEC61508.
  • Experience with hypervisors
  • Experience with performance, memory, and post-mortem analysis
  • Experience with SVN and gnu toolset
  • Experience in the development of automated testing
  • Experience in low-level Assembly and register-level programming with one of more of the following processors; ARM x86, PowerPC
  • Expertise in embedded and real-time systems development
  • Filesystem expertise
  • Compiler expertise
  • Technical knowledge of software analysis and design techniques


  • Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering/Computer Science/Computer Engineering or equivalent
