Everyone knows Intel as a manufacturer of some of the world’s best microprocessors and other hardware technologies, right? But did you know Intel does software too? We do, and we just launched our new Software Careers website! Yep, I said software… but… what about the s-o-f-t-w-a-r-e? Jason blogged about software opportunities in his post, “Why does a hardware company need Software Engineers?” a little while back, but I wanted to remind you and share some of my thoughts too.
Having been involved with the Software and Services group for five years now, I always knew it was an important component of Intel’s success. No matter how great the hardware is, it will not realize its full potential without correspondingly great software. I was amazed to find out that if you counted up all our software employees, as a stand alone company, it would be one of the largest software companies in the world. We have an insanely great team of software engineers that create many cool innovations in areas like graphics computing, open source, Moblin–Cool Vid, Intru 3D, Security, Manageability, Windows and other technologies.
With all this amazing “software stuff” flying around, in what is commonly known as a hardware company, we thought it would be a good idea to have a place designed for people interested in software careers. Inside Intel’s careers site, Jobs at Intel, (pardon the pun) you can quickly learn more about our software opportunities, explore Intel’s latest software innovations and easily meet and connect with the people that make Intel such a great software company.
Check out the new site and let me know what you think!
Also, stay tuned as we will be adding functionality that will allow users to select a specific interest area (open source, graphics computing, etc.) and see all of our software opportunities in that specific area. No searching – all with one click. Have questions? I’d love to help! Leave me a comment and I’ll do my best to answer them .
