PhD in Computer Systems in 2002 and MSc in Computer Science, both from Uppsala University, Sweden.
Since January of 2014, I am Product Line Manager for the tools aspect of Simics at Wind River, located in Kista, Sweden.
From 2012 to 2014, I worked as Senior Technical Marketing Manager for Tools and Lifecycle Solutions at Wind River, located in Stockholm, Sweden (which in practice was mostly focused on Simics).
From 2010 to 2012, I worked as Technical Marketing Manager for Simics at Wind River, located in Stockholm, Sweden.
From 2002 to 2010, I worked in a variety of roles (from engineering to sales to marketing) at Virtutech, the start-up that created the full-system simulator Simics. In 2010, Virtutech was acquired by Wind River (and Intel) and I followed the Simics product into Wind River.
In 2002, I worked as a software developer at IAR Systems in Uppsala, Sweden.
From 1997 to 2002, I was an industrial PhD student at the Information Technology Dept. at Uppsala University and IAR Systems. I basically shared my time between academic research and concrete industrial work. On the industrial side, I developed compilers, and presented on the topic of efficient C programming at industrial conferences and courses. My research was performed within the ASTEC research centre.
In 2014, I and Daniel Aarno at Intel published a book about simulation and Simics.
My blog (started in 2007), can be found at jakob.engbloms.se.
I also regularly write blogs about Simics on the Wind River blog network, look for me at blogs.windriver.com/.
