Phoenix Systems is looking for a Software Engineer to assist in development of Phoenix-RTOS operating system microkernel.

Kernel is the core component of the operating system. It provides basic functions and execution environment for other operating system components and user applications. Kernel affects the whole operating system performance and reliability. Kernel development requires broad knowledge of computer system architecture, in depth engineering experience and very good algorithmic skills. Kernel and operating system programmers are, historically speaking, the first programmers and they are still treated as the most advanced and elite group of software engineers (hackers).
