Embedded Software Engineer (Virtualization)

At the moment we are looking for experienced Embedded SW Engineer to strengthen our Tampere team. You would start your journey in one of our most interesting and challenging projects with the role covering the following aspects:

  • Building and prototyping a virtualization solution targeted at embedded Linux environments for edge type devices (phones, tablets, laptops, etc).
  • Leveraging and contributing to open source projects to explore the feasibility of the creation of such virtualization solutions.


Your future colleagues are waiting for you to join our international team. We are working in a modern office, almost in the city center of Tampere. Working with us is uncomplicated, there’s a good team spirit, low-hierarchy and nonexistent bureaucracy. Our way of working is flexible too, many of our team work remotely from home with visits to our office from time to time when needed. This role is equally challenging, and as such we offer a very good compensation. We would hope that you are able to start as soon as possible but we are of course ready to be flexible also.


The software professional we are looking for should be comfortable with at least some of the following:

  • Knowledge and experience with virtualized environments, preferably embedded environments, for example with Linux/KVM, Qemu, Xen, etc, seL4 a bonus.
  • Familiarity with Linux kernels, microkernels, drivers, low-level memory handling, interrupt handling.
  • Virtual machine architecture, inter-virtual machine communications.
  • Experience with ARM architecture or x86 architecture and general development board experience (board bring up, debugging, linux on top).
  • Fluent English


If not all of the above are familiar, but virtualization sounds interesting, then an aptitude for self-initiated research, motivation for low-level embedded development and prototyping should not be underestimated or under-valued.


At Unikie, you will get to:

  • Build new solutions for our customers and work with cutting edge technologies?
  • Collaborate along with colleagues who are the top in their field and together with our customers to strive for understanding what they need?
  • Develop and challenge yourself and learn more from experienced software talents?
  • Work with modern technologies and be involved to solve complex difficult challenges our customers might be facing?
  • Have an excellent compensation for your work.
  • Work in a global environment that develops modern, secure solutions for pioneers in their field
  • Work in a flexible low-hierarchy organization that looks after its own
  • In addition to our customer deliveries, we focus on our own R&D, where you can bring your own expertise to if you want to
