  • Setting up the base system: filesystem partitioning, upgrades, remote access, etc.
  • Configuring networking protocol stacks, optimizing data throughput, securing access, etc
  • Setting-up multimedia frameworks, optimizing audio/video performance, etc
  • Debugging complex real-time issues, Wi-Fi problems, camera interface, etc

Projects are performed either at the customers throughout Belgium, at Mind’s premises or fully remotely.

What we offer


  • Fun: interesting projects, focus on Linux and Open Source, regular game nights and outings, memes, fruits and drinks in the office

  • Learning: you will work and exchange expertise with other experienced Embedded Linux developers. We partner with Bootlin and others for various technical trainings. Also you will have the opportunity to participate in open source focused international conferences.
  • Open source contribution: we take the time to improve the upstream projects with patches, documentation, and other community involvement, check out some articles here: 
  • Contract type: permanent contract (salary aligned with the market, healthcare plan for you and your family, company car when needed, laptop, pension plan, extra holidays, home office and meal allowance, etc). Freelance contract is an option too.
  • Relocation to Belgium: we issue a job permit for people from non-EU countries and offer relocation packages. An expat contract with reduced tax rate is possible in case you have a Master’s degree in technologies.


We are an equal opportunities employer and welcome applications from all candidates with relevant skills.
