    Phoronix: Red Hat Is Hiring Another Linux Developer To Work On GPU Hardware Enablement

    Red Hat already employs numerous open-source graphics driver developers from DRM subsystem maintainer David Airlie to numerous others on his team working on areas from Mesa OpenCL support to Heterogeneous Memory Management to other user and kernel-space improvements for open-source Linux graphics. Red Hat has now put out a call to hire yet another experienced Linux GPU driver developer...

        This means that the typo was silently fixed.

          There's no mentioned of pay but the below gives us an idea:

          Microsoft

          https://www.comparably.com/companies...s/jr-developer

          Apple pays similar:

          https://www.comparably.com/companies...tware-engineer

          Red Hat

          https://www.comparably.com/companies/red-hat

          They are about 20K a year below the beg boys in terms of salary

          If they want to attract top talent and finally Linux GPU acceleration on par with Windows and OSX, they need to open up their pockets and pay a bit more.

            The pay is partly because their offices in are in weird places like North Carolina and Czech Republic. They need to open up proper offices where the talent is, like the bay area, then also pay competitively. Historically, people want to work there because:
            a. It's Red Hat
            b. They can cash out when they leave with Red Hat on their resume

              As someone who has worked in tech over the past 12 years for companies as small as sub-100 person startups to Google, I can tell you with authority that these salary websites are notoriously inaccurate, especially for more esoteric positions. Couple that with the fact that this posting is for a principle engineer, which is typically the top of the job ladder, and I can 100% guarantee that those comparably numbers mean nothing in relation to this position.

                One of the things RH best does is allowing people to be fully remote, so no need of having an office close to the employee. Talent is everywhere and not everyone wants to life in Bay Area. Many people prefer to reside close to their families where potentially the cost of living can be much lower than be a rockstar in SF.

                About RH offices, they are everywhere. North Carolina and Brno are large hubs, but you have offices in many countries:

                  Not really. The ad says "Successful applicants must reside in a country where Red Hat is registered to do business". So if they hire someone in Easter Europe and that person will not relocate to US, they will not pay him $130000 / year, as this would be 3-4 times more than the pay of an ordinary programmer. With these experience requirements I'd say 50-60k is more likely _in those areas_. With taxes perhaps 70k, but that is already a really good wage. Just to give perspective, the national average is just above $10 or $17k before tax (in Poland, in Czech republic is similar).

                  Just to give some perspective. 3 bedroom flat costs around $100-200 k in Poland in largest cities. That is $100k not $1M like in US. And it does not cost $150 to call a plumber. More like $50.

                    If I had to choose between "Bay Area" and Brno, I would choose Brno. Its nice, Czech, Not American(Important) and they have really good beer(Unlike the US). If you are ever in Czech Republic, try Radegast Beer.
