Linux expert to create firmware development tools

Do you care about efficiency? Algorithmic and workflow efficiency, that is. Here is the perfect opportunity to apply your Linux and embedded experience across all areas of the stack. You will have a lot of freedom to shape this new role in our Chipset Firmware team!

What is in it for you

Your challenge will be to make it easy to develop firmware for a complex, proprietary embedded system with a suite of tools – spanning build systems, toolchains, debuggers, and tracers. This is by no means a DevOps position. You will be developing tools exclusively to improve the efficiency and quality of the deliverables of our chipset firmware team.

Filling this new role, you will proactively plan and develop the tools to lift the efficiency of the whole team. Your tasks will include GDB support for debugging, radio/SW trace and visualization based on CTF, Linux debugging, fast debugging builds, network on chip load/congestion analyzer and aid in developing simulation infrastructure. All in all, you will:


  • Identify needs and opportunities for making our firmware development flow more efficient through debug and build tooling
  • Implement, deploy and support tooling
  • Ensure the standard of tools created by the FW developers and support these
  • Develop tooling architecture for the next-generation platform

You will be part of a world class embedded software environment, where you will be professionally challenged by 25 competent colleagues. You will enjoy the sense of purpose that comes from making a product that makes a meaningful difference to millions of people around the world, but your work will not be subject to rigorous medical device regulation. You will be free to develop the tools that make the biggest difference in the way that makes the most sense.

  • Good hardware understanding, meaning some experience with Verilog or VHDL
  • Understanding the compilation process; parsing, AST, CFG, SSA form, etc.
  • Experience with a few build systems (GNU make, Scons, CMake)

We grow – and so do you
The best hearing healthcare solutions are generated by the brightest people, so we put pride in continuously sharpening professional and personal competencies as well as assuring a steady flow of challenges.
