1. Technical Leader (LINUX Internals Engineer)

Job Description:
Participate in an engineering team designing and developing S/W
infrastructure and features for an integrated network security and higher
layer services mechanism providing technical consultation and authoritative
technical leadership on the system S/W design. Specific focus will be on the
definition, specification and implementation of S/W infrastructure for
applications. Contribute to definition of system architecture. Take a
leadership role in the technical content of the system specification/unit
functional specification. Produce functional and design specifications based
on the infrastructure S/W architecture. Initiate and facilitate reviews of
these designs. Create designs and implement software infrastructure such
that the underlying architecture can be used on multiple platforms with
little or no modifications. Undertake rapid prototyping for early proof of
concept and deliver modular, product-quality code on schedule. Work with
platform groups to integrate this software into their respective platforms.
This includes facilitating meetings, championing the design, justifying the
design decisions, and incorporating feedback and requirements back into the
architecture and design. Primarily involves investigations and design but
fair amount of coding is also required.


Work with management to identify key technologies and create product thrust.
Take responsibility for leading technical decisions required on a project.
May have intra-departmental impact important to success of company. Take
responsibility for technical content of design reviews and code
walkthroughs. To help engineers find ways to attack new or difficult
problems. Propose technical direction for major engineering initiatives and
ensures that all work related to initiatives is technically compatible.
Develops or reviews major interface specifications. Identifies possible
mismatches between Company’s direction and future market changes.

Skills Required:

Must have in-depth knowledge of OS such as UNIX, LINUX etc. Must have
experience designing S/W infrastructure for large system. Must have
experience in some of the following: Multi-threaded programming, writing S/W
in a SMP/NUMA environment, designing and implementing High Availability
systems, Device Drivers, ISR, system programming, writing Kernel S/W,
development of protocol stack. Must also have ability to apply new
technology and ability to design implement and integrate multiple subsystems
of a system. Must be able to work independently and in a team setting. Be
able to provide technical leadership at the cross-functional level. Must be

Interfaces cross-functionally and leads collaboration extending beyond
workgroup. Exercises broad independent judgment to determine method for
issue resolution. Tackles complex issues in creative ways. Problem solving
requires originality and ingenuity using knowledge gained during engineering
career with little to no manager input. Applies knowledge of Company's
business strategies to proactively anticipate business needs based on
