HP deliver the world’s most secure PCs, engineered to protect the end user through hardware level security features. You’ll be joining the Virtualization Platforms group responsible for building hypervisors (Yes! We’re working on several VMM projects) and other operating system components.

Our team has created a game-changing technology called micro-virtualization to protect end-users by isolating risky activities such as opening email attachments of unknown provenance in small, disposable Virtual Machines called uVMs.

You can check out the uXen code base (our micro-virtualization hypervisor) in our public GitHub repo: We’re also working on other advanced virtualization-based projects but let’s leave these to chat about “in person” if you’re interested.

Ideally the role holder will ordinarily work from our Cambridge, UK office but we’d also welcome applications from candidates who wish to work remotely, are available during core UK working hours and can visit Cambridge as/when required.
