We are looking for software engineers who can define software architectures while viewing software as part of a larger system comprising both software and hardware. Previous architecture experience is not necessary as long as you have good software engineering skills and are willing to approach problems at the system level.In this role you will have two related areas of responsibility: 1) participating in the definition of next generation architectures for future Qualcomm SoCs, and 2) driving the software design to realize the architecture on each SoC. This role is focused on power, thermal and limits management but you must also consider other important metrics such as performance and cost.Qualcomm SoCs serve many product categories including smartphones, tablets, wearables, IoT, servers, and automotive (telemetry, IVI and ADAS). One challenge in this role is to drive commonality in the architecture across these diverse product categories. It is anticipated that this position will focus on automotive products.
