About the job

Fuchsia is an open source, general purpose operating system. It’s designed from the kernel up for security, updatability, and flexibility. It is a platform to build products, not a specific end-user product.

The WLAN Drivers team develops the platform for wireless networking on Fuchsia devices. We build the APIs, libraries, and tools for writing these drivers, as well as the first WLAN drivers that run on Fuchsia.

The WLAN Drivers team has been developing the set of drivers that connect to wireless networks on Fuchsia devices. We’ve learned a lot along the way, but this approach won’t scale forever. As we expand our support to more WLAN chipsets, the team will engage with our partners and enable them to own their drivers. We also support Fuchsia’s goal of binary stable interfaces for drivers, allowing drivers to be updated independently from the rest of the system.

As Software Engineering Manager, you’ll manage the team as we balance existing priorities with the strategic changes needed to scale to a diverse hardware ecosystem for Fuchsia devices. We work with other teams in the connectivity stack as well as the Driver Framework team as we design our APIs.
