Your knowledge of Assemblers and binary formats such as ELF, DWARF and understanding of ABI is would be very useful.

  • We expect you have prior experience in developing device drivers (such as Ethernet, PCIe, UFS, SATA, SD/MMC, QSPI, NVME, USB, I2C, SPI, UART, Crypto, etc) and deep understanding of Secure Software Development Life Cycle (SSDLC).

  • Your prior knowledge in compiler development in area of instruction scheduling and/or tool development experience in Profiler, Debugger or Linker will be an added advantage.

  • You should have a solid programming background in C/C++ programming, data structures and coding conventions.

  • You are an excellent standout colleague that can collaborate well across time zones.
