Successful open source developers at Intel typically have a bachelors or advanced degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering or related field, with 4-6 years of experience.  We look for individuals with strong backgrounds in Linux*/UNIX, C/C++, JavaScript, HTML, WebKit and other web technologies. We also value experience with OpenGL, EGL, GLES2 and GLSL, along with familiarity working with the open source software community. The ability to read and analyze existing code for implementing components of a large-scale system is a plus. Knowledge of real-time programming, synchronization, multithreading, multi-processing, and programming at the device driver, application, and middleware levels is valuable.

If you prefer sharing innovation in an open, collaborative environment and are a regular contributor to the open source community, Intel may be the right fit. We want individuals with a holistic view of how the software kernel, operating system, applications, and the hardware interact. And we’re even more interested if you’re not afraid to document your work for the benefit of the broader community. We’re looking for the best and brightest who can work well with others for the success of the greater whole.
