UEFI Firmware Engineer

HP delivers the world's most secure and manageable PCs used by governments, defense organizations and international corporations. The core BIOS team develops the UEFI framework used in HP PCs. Our team deploys advanced systems, often collaborating with other technology teams, including HP labs.

We now have openings for experienced embedded firmware developers to augment the skillset of our technically diverse team. While UEFI EDK II firmware experience is highly desirable, we will consider candidates with experience writing systems-level code (Win32, COM, Linux Kernel, Device Drivers, BIOS, Firmware, CORBA, etc.), with a focus on secure computing, networking, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, or similar technologies.

We are a scrum team; so, developers that succeed in our team thrive in an environment where goals are accomplished through dialog, collaboration and consensus. We apply principles of software craftsmanship to continuously improve our processes, tools and firmware. We collaborate with teams located around the world. Although not frequent, travel may be required. In addition to developing new technologies and driving best practices within HP, we have developers that lead UEFI working groups to drive industry standards. Developers are encouraged to patent intellectual property. This position provides an excellent opportunity for high visibility, recognition and advancement for top technical talent.
