Typical duties include: 

  • Design (architect new functionality), develop (write new code) and support (debug and fix breakages) firmware and software tools affecting various aspects of print on single function and multifunction products. 

  • Collaborate with stakeholders to solidify requirements and work with various teams to accomplish tasks 

  • Build domain expertise in your area of responsibility, which includes creating prototypes, problem solving and delivering shippable features. 

  • Develop Linux device drivers that utilize controller HW blocks within a SoC. 

  • Create application interfaces and associated software. 

  • Optimize performance and use of system resources. 


Job Requirements: 

  • Candidates must have at least a Bachelor of Science in a related subject such as Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, or Computer Science. 

  • Strong software development engineering, analytical and problem-solving skills are required.  

  • Solid background in ‘C’ coding.
