You’ll be part of a team of makers responsible for architecture, prototyping, implementing, testing, and releasing new software features and enhancements supporting our portfolio of SDRs. You should be comfortable using modern Linux software development tools including GCC, GDB, git, make/cmake, and CI/CD tools on a daily basis.

  • Demonstrated software engineering skills with experience in C/C++ development
  • Hands-on experience developing Linux user space applications for either ARM or x86-based platforms; ideally these applications also interface with low level hardware peripherals and interfaces such as SPI and I2C, as well as high-rate data streaming transports such as USB, PCIe, or 10/40/100 Gigabit Ethernet.
  • Experience with software development and debugging on both embedded and server-class Linux systems, using tools such as GCC, GDB, make/cmake, docker, CI/CD, and rpm/deb packaging.
  • Eligibility to work on Federal contracts that require US Citizenship.


  • Experience developing software applications that leverage GPU-accelerated processing.
  • General understanding of RF.
  • Previous experience working in the field of software defined radio.
  • In addition to significant C/C++ experience, familiarity with one or more programming languages such as Java, Python, or Go.
  • Experience developing and debugging Linux kernel space device drivers.
