You will be responsible for building core library components in the Ockam code base. Because of the broad-base of environments where the Ockam Embedded and Ockam Edge SDKs may be deployed in the field, you will build for ARM, RISC-V, AVR, verified/secure boot, cryptographic modules, and secure enclaves.
