  • Software performance analysis and tuning
  • Hardware system performance analysis and tuning
  • Full software life cycle activities: Specifications, Design, Implementation, Test, and Maintenance

  • 10+ years’ experience in C++ language programming
  • Strong experience developing in a Linux OS environment
  • Knowledge of digital hardware design fundamentals
  • Strong debugging skills
  • Knowledge of Python and Tcl
  • The candidate should be a self-motivated team player who values quality-oriented and performance-oriented software engineering
  • The candidate should be a good communicator who asks questions about requirements when needed, and gathers feedback on architecture and design ideas when needed
