An anonymous Phoronix reader tipped us off this morning that Imagination Technologies has listed a new job opening for a Linux graphics driver developer that would also include working on portions of their yet-to-be-public open-source driver.

We've been hearing now for a few months that Imagination is working on some sort of new PowerVR Linux driver and at least larger components of it would be open-source. This new Imagination job posting seems to further confirm this work.

Imagination is looking for a developer that can work on X, Mesa, Wayland, DRI, and DRM drivers. The posting reads, "You will be a member of a small team, working alongside other software teams implementing the full driver stack for PowerVR graphics HW...‚ÄčAs part of the Linux team you'll be focusing on developing Linux and Open Source specific portions of our driver - the display controllers, kernel interfaces and hardware-specific portions of X, Mesa and Wayland."

Any Phoronix readers willing to work for Imagination in the UK that are experienced with Mesa/DRI/X/Wayland development can find out more about this new job opening via this job listing.
