We are looking for a Senior Software Engineer to participate in the development of applications for mobile devices based on the GNU/Linux and other open source technologies (GTK/QT/Python). You will be responsible for specification, development and quality assurance of components in our application projects. Working in teams consisting of internal and external members, your domain of work spans from the application engine to the application UI.

You have a passion for high quality SW and enjoy studying existing solution alternatives to see how they fit our needs and you enjoy the challenge of solving complex engineering problems, even under tight schedules. You participate in code reviews and coach your team members in questions related to your domain of expertise and high quality SW. You have already developed specialist skills in one or more areas, but you are eager to widen your scope of expertise to new domains.


You have at least 3 years of experience in SW development for embedded Linux. We will especially appreciate previous knowledge of the Gnome desktop environment in the Maemo software development platform. You have a proven track record of participation in open source projects and thus know how SW development is conducted in open source projects and are familiar with the related legal and licensing issues.

Success in this position requires good team working skills and you should also have experience in coordinating teamwork with colleagues and subcontractors. Networking with internal customers to find solutions for their needs is a natural way of working for you and you enjoy learning. You are persistent when striving towards a goal and a solid performer with a high level of motivation and drive. In order to communicate effectively with your international colleagues, you are fluent in written and spoken English. If you are ready to get passionate about software, click on 'apply' now!
