We are looking for a Senior Architect to coordinate and supervise architecture and performance work in Applications SW product programs.

You have 8-12 years of experience in SW development and systems design for embedded Linux. We value previous experience of working in big agile SW projects developing GUI-based Linux applications.

In addition, you are familiar with the legal and licensing issues related to open source projects.

Success in this position requires good team working skills. Networking with internal customers to find solutions for their needs is a natural way of working for you.
