Linux Kernel - HW Debug/IO/Virtualization/Performance

 

THE ROLE: 

As a Linux kernel developer in our Linux Server Operating Systems team – bring an understanding of computer architecture and operating system concepts designed for the x86-64 architecture. Design and develop core CPU and SOC features for the Linux kernel and related open-source projects. This opportunity gets you involved in all phases of software development!

 

THE PERSON: 

A Linux kernel developer with strong analysis and problem-solving skills who will deliver responsive and efficient solutions that bring new AMD processors to market with IO/virtualization solutions. Engage in proven technical collaboration to guide the process of AMD hardware enablement for new generation CPUs. Utilize polished written and verbal communication skills to work with on-site and offshore teams, analyze system requirements, coordinate feature design, debug, and development with other teams.

 

Join a small team of Linux kernel developers in supporting, optimizing, and enhancing the Linux kernel in support AMD EPYC CPUs.   

 

KEY RESPONSIBILITIES: 

Join a small kernel-focused team to identify bottlenecks and optimizations/features to advantage EPYC CPUs. Drive features and functionality to our partner technical teams including the Linux kernel community. Support the solutions offered by our partner companies. Review code, build unit tests, and write detailed documentation. Collaborate!

 

PREFERRED EXPERIENCE: 

  • Product development or systems engineering background with hardware platforms and their software & firmware ecosystems 
  • Expert understanding and experience with the Linux kernel (especially IO/PCI/MM/virtualization) and related upstream development workflow
  • Strong kernel debugger
  • Advanced programming skills in C for operating system kernel & systems development
  • Exposure to KVM/QEMU (including x86-64 virtualization extensions) is a plus
  • Experience with the GNU toolchain
  • Proficient use of git
  • Experience with open-source software development, building and submitting patches on a mailing list, and working with external software partners
  • Deep understanding of operating systems concepts, data structures, x86-64 architecture, and virtualization
  • Experience with low-level debug tools as well as emulators and simulators
  • Experience running, analyzing, and tuning system performance benchmarks

 

ACADEMIC CREDENTIALS: 

  • Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science or Computer Engineering or other relevant field
  • Master's Degree preferred
