Intel Programmable Solutions Group formerly Altera is seeking to recruit a design engineer to join its Networking System Solutions team based in High Wycombe, UK. This team creates reference solutions, reusable IP components and turn-key design services, using Intel FPGAs, for top customers and strategic opportunities in the networking space. Innovation is rapidly driving new features in networking, introducing the need for agility in development practices. This naturally favors a software-based approach. However, it is challenging to scale software-based solutions to meet the exponential growth in traffic rates. The Network System Solutions team is tasked with developing offload and acceleration technologies for software based networking components, allowing performance which is close to that of custom silicon, whilst retaining the programmability and agility which comes with software.
The successful candidate will need to have a software background, either be a Software Engineer or a Software Architect and should have good understanding of the software architecture used in virtual environments, offload functions such as storage offload. The role will include software development as well as architecting some of the software stack for networking solutions. The candidate will work with some of Intel's top networking experts from all around the world on projects for tier-1 customers.
