Job Description

MeeGo Computers is where Nokia builds mobile computers on Linux. We build leading-edge devices by combining the most powerful hardware and the best open source software technologies. Our ambition is to deliver a superior user experience dedicated for mobile computers with large touch-screens that fit into your pocket. Using agile development methods and engaging with open source communities define our new way of working. Our latest product is the Nokia N900 — a high-performance mobile computer with powerful multitasking capabilities, fantastic web browser, and a rich media experience. Get to know everything about MeeGo at www.meego.com

Join the MeeGo Application Framework SW team and take part in building exciting new consumer products with an open source software asset. Once onboard the team, you will focus on the design and development of software related to user interfaces and framework functionalities. You will have the opportunity to participate in the development of features for current and future consumer products from Nokia. As part of a development team, you'll be given plenty of space to grow and new challenges and responsibilities in an agile SW development environment.

We have openings for motivated SW developers with different levels of experience from entry-level to lead developer and architect positions. Your position will be tailored for you based on your experience and aspirations. Preferred location is Helsinki, Finland.


To join us, you are an enthusiastic team player with experience from Linux as a development platform and genuine hands-on experience in GNU/Linux based software development in C++. In-depth understanding of Qt is a big plus. It will also be counted in your favor if you have experience on any of the interpreted environments ranging from Ruby and Python to JavaScript. Good written and spoken English are also a part of your toolbox.

Our team is working on: a Qt-based UI widget set that is the core of the user experience of Maemo-based devices, system notification and status indication frameworks, home screen (i.e. desktop implementations), application launching/switching framework including application life cycle management, input methods (keyboards and virtual keyboards, etc.), and the content framework, rethinking the traditional file directory-based approach. Experience in any of these areas is appreciated, but not mandatory. We'll also appreciate familiarity with C++, Qt, Linux, Gnome, Graphics, KDE, extreme programming, continuous integration, and SCRUM.
