                   Senior Embedded Software Engineer

                   As a development engineer for QWBS, I worked on various mobile asset tracking
                   systems (OmniTRACS, TrailerTracs, OmniExpress) from hw/sw integration to
                   system infrastructure and application development:

                          Implemented drivers in C++ for a family of runtime-selectable GSM-modules.
                          Ported low-level x86 assembly executive (REX) to C.
                          Refactored J1708/1587 drivers from x86 assembly to C.
                          Developed system simulator in Perl to enable development without hardware.
                          Awarded 2 QualStars for fixing long-standing low-level bugs in OmniTRACS.

                   As a firmware engineer for QCT, I worked on the development & troubleshooting
                   of LCD-Controller drivers for various MSM chips (ARM based).
