Performance Engineer

Job Description

The Performance Measurement and Analysis team (PMA) within the Network Platforms Group(NPG) is looking for a Performance Engineer to define and lead execution of performance tests as well as analyze results and identify performance bottlenecks for L3-L7 Packet Processing and Media Transcoding. As part of the PMA team, you will be working with architects and application engineering teams to analyze and interpret results and interfacing with customers and industry partners. The products covered include Intel Xeon Processor Product Family, Intel Core i3, i5, i7 processors, and future accelerators.

NPG's Performance Engineer will work with state of the art platforms and from initial power on, the engineering will setup and tune the system for optimal performance, collect performance data, analyze the performance data to ensure the system meets expectations which could be previous platforms, performance projections and or requests from silicon and software architects exploring options which may yield the optimal level of performance. The position provides opportunity and responsibility to shape Intel's direction and growth in multiple emerging market segments by providing recommendations for future algorithms, hardware component enhancements. You will work hands-on in collaboration with a cross-functional teams and customers to explore design options, provide implementation trade-offs and deliver implementations that allow Intel to deliver compelling products.
