Qualcomm Technologies International, Ltd (based in Cambridge, England and formerly known as Cambridge Silicon Radio Limited) is a new subsidiary of Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.
Embedded software developers across the world create innovative solutions using our semiconductor and radio technology. A Bluetooth speaker dock, a wireless mouse, an in-car information/entertainment system, advanced satellite navigation and an indoor location app for a mobile phone using smart beacon lightbulbs are just a few of the products we make possible.
For our upcoming product lines the software development tools group aims to improve our integrated development environment (IDE). We write multi-platform code for Windows and Linux using C++, C and Python. We use open source and proprietary third party software where we can (for example Qt) and platform specific environments where appropriate (Microsoft's Windows SDK and Visual Studio). You care deeply about usability topics like responsiveness, legibility, discoverability and consistency. To help developers using our IDE on their journey from prototype to production of embedded systems containing our semiconductors, you will be expected to apply your knowledge to resolve interaction design trade-offs, efficiently managing the control and display of the target software and hardware involved. In return we will provide a rewarding environment that encourages collaboration and fosters innovation.
