Kernel Developer

At Igalia, we are looking to hire a developer to contribute to the Linux kernel.

Job position description

This position is not aimed for any specific subsystem but actual experience developing in the kernel and interacting with its community is a must. Background supporting embedded hardware, developing drivers and, specifically, contributions in graphics and the DRM subsystem will come in handy. The candidate will usually be in close collaboration with other teams inside Igalia. Familiarity with the concepts and different layers of the graphics stack will be also helpful when assisting the user space drivers developers from our graphics team.

Igalia is a distributed company which has English as the common language for internal communication. Hence, working remotely is a natural setting and being self-directed and self-motivated is an advantage.

When applying, make sure to mention any experience you might have with GPUs, drivers, the DRM subsystem, the KVM subsystem and architecture-dependent code like ARM[64] or MIPS.
