The team behind Huawei’s self-developed OS, “Hongmeng,” is looking beyond just making an Android substitute.

Huawei’s OS Kernel Lab for the development of its proprietary OS began recruiting in 2016 for its branches in China, the US, Canada, and Germany. It was looking to hire full-time engineers, system architects, researchers, and interns to develop a “next-generation OS” integrating up-and-coming technologies including 5G, augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), autonomous vehicles (AV) and more, according to job listings posted by Huawei’s software institute on its official WeChat subscription account.

The lab is based in six locations including Beijing, Hangzhou, and Shanghai, and with universities including the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Stanford, and Yale, according to the website and job postings. MIT and Stanford have recently suspended ties with the troubled telecom giant, and Yale could not immediately be reached for comment.
