    In this key role you will be responsible for the development and improvement of an automated build and testing framework for our development team and you will ensure the quality of our development. This involves hands-on involvement in building, testing and benchmarking mobile embedded software, and also working alongside with the Android/Chromium/Windows teams on their development environment. You will also work closely with partners and OSS communities developing the same infrastructure and possibly participating in developer conferences and summits.

    You will be flexible with a variety of software development skills and a commitment to extend the breadth and depth of their knowledge.

    Are you passionate about making software that works better, runs faster and be simpler, using the latest and the greatest technologies and tools?
