Qualcomm Overview :

Qualcomm is a company of inventors that unlocked 5G ushering in an age of rapid acceleration in connectivity and new possibilities that will transform industries, create jobs, and enrich lives.

But this is just the beginning. It takes inventive minds with diverse skills, backgrounds, and cultures to transform 5Gs potential into world-changing technologies and products.

This is the Invention Age - and this is where you come in.

General Summary

As an Engineer in the WLAN FIRMWARE Group, you will be designing, developing, unit testing, bug fixing and maintaining WLAN firmware that implements functional aspects of WLAN features on low memory foot print processors that will work in tandem with device drivers running on the host processors.

The host driver and the firmware implement the WLAN drivers on the Qualcomm’s WLAN SoC platforms. You will be working on cutting edge WiFi technologies (IEEE 802.

11 ac / ax and the latest 11be), solving challenging WiFi design, performance and power issues and working with some of the leading WiFi ODMs & OEMs across the globe on their sometimes high pressure & tough timelines.

Your work will lead into ensuring that Qualcomm’s Snapdragon platform is the best in power and performance while delivering world class low latency experiences as seen in use-cases such as XR glasses and Cloud Gaming.

It is desirable to have prior background in any wireless technology with exposure to embedded firmware development, including pre-silicon bring-up and working closely with Hardware team.

However, candidates with strong programming background (C, C++) and with strong knowledge of real time operating system can also apply.

Candidates with prior exposure to low power concepts and algorithms are highly encouraged to apply.
