Mercury Mission Systems International (MMSI) is developing and manufacturing computer systems for avionic applications. Our safety certifiable ROCK computer product line is designed for airborne (e.g. pilot assistance/autonomy, flight management and control, on-board video distribution etc.) and ground applications (e.g. satellite navigation system ground stations etc.). We are developing a next generation aviation safety certifiable Ethernet subsystem for these applications, called ACE V, which provides functionalities implemented in FPGA such as:

• an aviation certifiable subset of the IP network stack (UDP/IP/MAC layer),

• time synchronization with other ACE V nodes,

• packet-forwarding capabilities etc.


As part of the ACE V R&D team, you will be in charge of validation software for ACE V, using the socket framework provided by the Linux kernel. After an immersion in the functionalities of both ACE V hardware/firmware and the socket framework, your mission will consist in:

• describing briefly how the ACE V hardware features will be integrated in the socket layer,

• defining the specific API to handle the features not covered by the socket API (static configuration, time synchronization and packet-forwarding capability),

• developing a Linux driver for the ACE V FPGA,

• writing and executing test software to validate the ACE V features,

• supporting the FPGA team in understanding and debugging failing tests.


• Good programming skills in C

• Knowledge of the Linux kernel and TCP/IP networking protocols is an advantage

• Ability to communicate effectively, both written and orally, with colleagues and at all organization levels

• Good analytical ability

• Fluent in French, good level of English


  • On-going engineering degree in Computer Science or a related subject


  • Projects with high level of complexity
  • Flexible working hours
  • Work from home
  • LinkedIn Learning
  • Inclusive culture
  • Swibeco benefits platform
  • WorkTango rewards platform
  • Free coffee/tea at work
