Our team focuses on development and testing of peripheral and graphics drivers in QNX, Green Hills Integrity and Windows 10 IoT operating systems on i.
MX application processors.
We are looking for a talented technical university student or graduate (Electrical Engineering, Informatics, Computer Science or similar) with experience or interest in embedded C / C++ software development.
You will be participating on development of embedded drivers, complex solutions, and test applications for embedded operating systems like QNX, Green Hills Integrity, and Windows 10 IoT.
The knowledge of NXP i.MX architecture (ARM) and Linux is an advantage, and if you are proficient with distributed version control systems like Git that s what we need!
Don’t hesitate to contact us in case the position seems interesting. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Maybe you’ll find some of the answers in the FAQ section below.
1. What will be my duties?
You’ll participate in developing and porting peripheral drivers, complex software layers, and demo apps for i.MX Series application processors based on ARM platform.
In the beginning you’ll be mainly studying the i.MX Series (ARM) processor architecture and familiarizing yourself with the QNX, Green Hills or Windows10 IoT operating systems.
After that you’ll be gradually introduced to development work.
2. What if I’ll have to study the documentation before writing the code?
Then you’ll study the documentation : )
3. What if I’m shy and afraid of calls from customers and colleagues from abroad?
You don’t have to be afraid. We don’t expect you to communicate with customers directly. However, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to attend calls with customers as an observer and build up your self-confidence.
4. How good is my English supposed to be? Is the ability to understand the written word sufficient?
Reading comprehension skills are sufficient and necessary to understand the documentation. However, fluent spoken English is a considerable advantage.
You’ll be able to gradually improve it by attending teleconferences with other teams.
5. What if a simple task grows to proportions I can’t handle?
You don’t need to worry about that. Our teams are full of specialists who are able and willing to help.
6. Will the results of my work be tangible?
Of course. Our main customer is the car industry, deploying i.MX processors in conjunction with operating systems in infotainment panels in their vehicles.
These panels provide GPS navigation, radio and so on. So who knows, maybe your future car will contain code of your own.
7. Will I have to do testing?
A little. Our team isn’t responsible for testing as such, but you’ll have to define, develop, and automate tests.
8. Which development kits / boards will I work with?
You’ll mostly work with kits for processors of the i.MX series (i.MX6, i.MX7, i.MX8). These are high-performance multicore application-processors.
Linux and Android usually run on these processors as well.
9. Which frameworks will I work with?
We’re using QNX Momentics Studio 7.0 with integrated GCC compiler to develop QNX. For Green Hills Integrity, we work with Green Hills MULTI with integrated Green Hills compiler.
10. Will I be able to take time off during college examination periods?
Of course. During examination periods, students normally don’t come to the office, and focus on exams exclusively.
