    Job Description

    Join our team and test the compilers and tools that build the code in the world’s embedded devices! We are looking for an experienced test engineer with an interest in low-level software. You will join an established team working on our commercial compiler and toolchain products for embedded devices. Our partners rely on our tools to support their future successes across many markets, including automotive, medical, storage and networking.

    Collaborating with your colleagues, your focus will be on implementing additional testing of our toolchain products, including the compilers, linkers and libraries. Supporting the wider development team is also a vital part of the role, encouraging great testing practices at every stage of the lifecycle. Over time, we expect you to grow into helping to define new developments in our test strategy, adopting new practices, approaches and tools for testing.
