Job Overview

San Diego Job Description Qualcomm CR&D is looking for an experienced software developer to work within an existing team to add firmware support for Automotive use cases. The development target is Qualcomm high-performance inference accelerator targeting ADAS applications.

An ideal candidate should be familiar with designing embedded software in a process orientated environment for safety critical applications (such as Automotive) and associated specifications such as ISO 26262, IEC 61508, ISO 13485, DO-178/DO-254.

Familiarity with Qualcomms mobile software code base including: board support packages, device driver development, RTOS (QuRT), secure boot, trust-zone, low-speed peripheral interfaces, chipset power blocks, clock tree management, PCIe and efficient data movement using DMA would be beneficial. Required Skills and Aptitudes

+ Experience in requirement capture and traceability e.g. JAMA, IBM Rational Doors NG

+ Experience in UML design capture & analysis e.g. use of Enterprise Architect, IBM Rational Rhapsody

+ Experience in unit testing tooling for C/C++ development for safety critical applications e.g. use of Parasoft C/C++, LDRA, VectorCAST C/C++ software suites.

+ Experience with software static analysis tools e.g. Klocwork, Parasoft/VectorCAST analytics, Coverity

+ Experience with development in C/C++ including debug and testing, preferable using GNU/LLVM tools) on embedded platforms using stop-mode debug tools such as JTAG/SWD

+ Experience working with BSP development including device driver development, board-bring-up, RTOSs, secure boot & trust zone

+ Experience with development of peripheral drivers.

+ Knowledge of RTOS, SoC architecture (core, cache, memory, bus architecture, IOs, etc.) and common hardware blocks

+ Experience with Source Code and Configuration management tools, git knowledge is required

+ Willingness to work in a structured software development environment with ability to work on low-level implementation (code & test)

+ Willingness to work in a high-caliber mixed hardware/software development team

Preferred Qualifications

+ 5+ years of relevant experience

+ Familiarity with at least one of the safety centric standards such as ISO 26262, IEC 61508, ISO 13485, DO-178/DO-254.

+ Familiar with high speed interfaces such as PCIe and LPDDR

+ Familiar with implementing systems with high reliability expectations such as use of ECC, PCI AER fields.

+ Familiar with low speed interfaces such as I2C, SPI, SPMI, AVSBus & PMBus

+ Familiar with protocols such as CFI, NVMe-MI, MCTP & IPMI/IPMB, BHI & MHI

+ Familiar working with software running on Qualcomms QuRT RTOS (ARM Cortex-A CPUs and Hexagon DSPs)

+ Familiar with Qualcomms Core Software infrastructure e.g. Glink, QDSS, SOC power control algorithms such as dynamic frequency/voltage scaling.

+ Experience working with and familiarity with important SOC building blocks like interrupt controller & timers

+ Software development and debug tools including compilers, profilers, source control systems, emulators, JTAG and serial debuggers, and logic analyzers
