The Programmable Solutions Group at Intel is building "smart NIC : heterogeneous accelerator architectures with FPGAs". The Xeon FPGA group is responsible for combining Intel's world-class Xeon processors with flexible programmable FPGAs that can accelerate the performance of workloads typically run in the Data Center and Edge, by orders of magnitude.
We are seeking strong Platforms SW Engineers to join our team to deliver the next generation of scalable Xeon FPGA accelerator platforms.
These platforms include discrete FPGA accelerator cards, highly optimized RTL to deliver high performance IO connectivity to Xeon processors running Intel's opensource OPAE software acceleration framework.
Solutions built on this technology cover genomics, deep-learning, data analytics, network function virtualization and other fast-growing areas.
You will be part of an platform SW engineering team responsible for delivering platform SW for smart NIC platform, You will be contributing in many areas of the software lifecycles(Architecture, SW development , debugging, testing, and customer engagement / product support.
The platform SW stack includes Hypervisor, user level platform software, kernel level drivers for interaction with FPGAs and management APIs.
The ideal candidate should be motivated, self-driven, able to set priorities and get results across boundaries. May also be required to provide architectural and technical guidance and ensure that sound engineering decisions are followed.
Interacts with stakeholders, both internal and external. Minimum Qualifications : Bachelors of Computer Science or Computer Engineering or related field with 3-15 years of industry experience.
