Bootlin is really happy to welcome another engineer in its team: Thomas Richard, who joined us on July 3, 2023 (missing a participation to the Embedded Linux Conference Europe by just one week!).
Thomas graduated from INSA Toulouse in 2015, and then started his embedded software engineer career at Kontron, where he worked on numerous aspects of embedded Linux system development:
- Thomas developed an OpenWRT based embedded Linux OS for railway systems, including virtualization support and security features such as TPM-based secret sealing, Host Intrusion Detection System (HIDS), and Linux Security Modules (LSM)
- Thomas used both Yocto and Buildroot as build systems to create custom embedded Linux systems, in particular to support VME/VPX boards.
- Thomas has developed several Linux kernel drivers, for GPIOs, HDLC, UART, watchdog, and more, to address the needs of several Kontron products
- Thomas has also worked on cyber-security challenges, by creating a streamlined process to merge results from different vulnerability scanners and generate comprehensive reports for customers, to allow them to keep their embedded Linux systems updated in terms of security fixes.
Thomas is joining our team located in Lyon, France, where he will work at our office with Alexandre Belloni, Grégory Clement, Théo Lebrun and Kamel Bouhara, and of course with the rest of our team in Toulouse and remote.
For more details, see Thomas’ page on Bootlin.com or his LinkedIn profile.
Since June 1st, we’re happy to have an additional engineer in our team, Clément Léger!
After graduating from ENSIMAG in 2012, Clément spent 9 years working for Kalray, a silicon vendor company based in France, designing and producing an innovative and advanced new multi-core CPU architecture. At Kalray, Clément was in charge of porting a bootloader and the Linux kernel to this new CPU architecture, working on all aspects needed to support the CPU in the
arch/ of Linux (syscalls, interrupts, exceptions, MMU, etc.) as well as developing a number of core kernel drivers such as pinctrl, irqchip, remoteproc and spimem.
In our engineering team at Bootlin, Clément will help our customer with bootloader porting, Linux kernel porting, device driver development, integration of complete Linux BSPs and more. He brings an additional significant experience in low-level kernel development and debugging to our team of experts. Clément will be working remotely from Grenoble, in tight connection with our team in Lyon.
See Clément Léger’s page on our site, as well as the rest of our team.
