SENIOR LINUX KERNEL ENGINEER
Are you an experienced Linux Kernel engineer? Would you like to help build the next generation Wi-Fi chips that will enable a new generation of Internet of Things (IoT) devices? Then join Australia’s hottest semiconductor startup. You’ll work with the team that invented Wi-Fi 20 years ago, and help them shape the future of Wi-Fi for IoT.
You will join a software team implementing the IEEE 802.11ah standard on Morse Micro’s state-of-the-art RISC-V multi-core chip architecture, along with its supporting Linux device drivers and applications. Your main focus will be the Linux device drivers, but there will be necessary involvement in writing Python scripts, device drivers, firmware, interrupt handlers, and other related areas.
Working on and maintaining Morse Micro Linux device drivers
Integration with Linux Wifi blocks, such as soft/full MAC, wpa_supplicant and hostapd
Participating in various testing and certification efforts.
Implementation of Wi-Fi Alliance test suite software as required
Various Optimisations for Performance, Footprint and Power consumption
Writing elegant Python scripts to facilitate testing and other tasks
Providing an overall technical expertise and brilliance
Wi-Fi interoperability testing may necessitate some travel (mostly USA)
There will be some customer interaction, e.g. implementation of customer requested features, resolution of customer found issues etc
BSc in Electrical / Electronics / Communication Engineering or Computer Science
4+ years relevant industry experience in embedded software projects
Proven experience in Firmware and Embedded projects using C programming language
Experience in Linux kernel development
Experience in Linux applications for embedded devices
Experience using software version control and issue tracking systems
Excellent verbal and written communication skills
Strong analytical and problem-solving skills
A hands-on, practical attitude
(key skills that you should have 70% of) :
A good understanding of the IEEE 802.11 standard including 802.11 Linux Soft MAC and Full MAC architectures and 802.11 security model
Experience with wpa_supplicant and hostap
Experience in working on GNU/Linux, GCC and Make development environment
Experience with wireshark for testing and debugging of 802.11 systems
Experience with various hardware interfacing buses, like SDIO, SPI and I2C
Experience using Python for tools and scripts.
Experience in using static analysis and automated testing tools.
(if you have those you can stand out among the crowd, don’t sweat it if you don’t):
Good understanding of C++
Familiarity with embedded processors and RISC-V in particular
Bonus points if familiar with software defined radio (SDR) such as GNURadio
Familiarity with digital design languages such as VHDL, Verilog and SystemVerilog or IC design flows from Cadence or Synopsys
Familiarity with Matlab
