Chip-maker Intel is looking for software experts for a new team focussed on tablets, according to a new job listing posted on social networking site LinkedIn. The listing mentions openings for several senior positions on the team, a Reuters report stated. The company is apparently looking for people with experience in development and architecture of Windows, wireless and cameras.
The job ad reads, “The Intel tablet SW team is in the early forming stages and presents an opportunity to play a key role in building the IA tablet platform SW foundation and creation of SW technologies to deliver exciting new experiences to consumers. Responsibilities include partnering with key Intel customers, independent technology suppliers, marketing, engineering management and senior architects from multiple Intel disciplines to negotiate, design, and lead implementation of a wide range of high complexity features and systems.”
Intel’s processors are now being used in 80 per cent of the world’s PCs. But it is still behind companies like ARM Holdings, Qualcomm and Samsung Electronics when it comes to adapting chips for smartphones and tablets.
Intel seems to be focusing in-house on software to make sure its chips work efficiently.
The company has also announced cutting of its third-quarter revenue estimate more than expected due to a decline in demand for its chips.
