AMD's Hiring Open-Source Graphics Developers Still

For anyone wanting to join John Bridgman's team to work on the open-source Radeon graphics drivers for Linux, there's still openings.

Alex Deucher, the lead open-source AMD graphics developer working under Bridgman, passes along that they're still looking to hire more people. While AMD has lots of community support for individuals to work on their DRM, DDX, and Mesa / Gallium3D components, Alex is really only the main contributor on AMD's payroll and then David Airlie also does a lot over at Red Hat.

The new position(s) is to be based out of the snowy, cold, and hunting areas of Markham, Ontario, but are allowed to work remotely from anywhere in the world.

From the AMD jobs page, "Working together with the graphics team at AMD and with the open source community to design and implement support for new features and ASICs in the open source driver stack for AMD/ATI graphics chips and supporting custom projects that utilize the open source driver stack or the public APIs of the closed source driver stack. Strong background in computer graphics, preferably with AMD/ATI hardware, and open source projects required. Knowledge of 3D graphics and OpenGL required."

Back in December they were still working to fill this position of hiring more open-source developers and in March said they were looking to dramatically ramp up their engineer count. This is also coming at a time when Intel just hired 80+ developers (former Nokia employees) to work for their Open-Source Technology Center to do driver work.
