Job description

As a Linux Software designer at Frontgrade Gaisler you will primarily be responsible for the development of embedded system software, from specification to implementation and documentation. It is an opportunity to take part in a dedicated team around the Linux development for our LEON/SPARC32 and NOEL-V/RISC-V processors. As part of our software team, you may also be involved in supporting development of instruction simulators and hardware debug software tools support, which are tightly coupled with our SoC solutions. The Linux software environment is developed based on open-source projects where you will be involved in public discussions from time to time.

  • Embedded operating systems such as Linux and bare metal C
  • Device driver design, or Linux kernel programming skills

The development is mainly performed using C programming, but also using SPARC/RISC-V assembly, C++, and scripting languages. Other skills that would be preferable, but not required, are skills within:

  • Yocto, Buildroot or other Linux distribution build systems
  • Compiler toolchain and C Library
  • Automated testing using frameworks such as Yocto, Linux Test Project, etc.
  • Real-time Operating System (RTOS), Virtualization/Hypervisor technology

You’re always eager to learn more and share your competence with your colleagues. If you are a senior embedded developer or have previous experience as a team leader, this is considered a plus, and the role will be adapted accordingly.

What we offer

In the software section we offer you a creative environment where you can influence your work and have the possibility to work within several projects ranging from simulators, debuggers, operating systems, drivers and boot loaders. Since all hardware SoC design and supporting software development takes place in-house at Frontgrade Gaisler, a unique expertise within SoC, and microprocessor design, target software and tools is at hand.
