Inside this Business Group
� This position is for:
Permanent blue badge employees only.
Datacenter Engineering Group (DEA-PIV) is looking for talents for System Debugging to secure the SW quality by continuous integration. In this position, you will work with various functional teams (BIOS/BMC, Silicon, board design, OSV, etc) to enable Intel latest hardware platforms and technologies. You will have a chance to touch cutting-edge silicon, Windows and Linux OS and server hardware technologies and see how to apply those technologies in big internet companies. Your responsibilities will include but not be limited to:
Study newest Intel hardware and platform features and track the enabling status of those features in silicon, low-level firmware/software, OS (e.g. Windows /Linux/VMware)
Deep dive and root cause silicon enabling and system integration issues to sub system/source code level and drive sightings into closure by proactive physical work and/or coordination with relevant stakeholders on defect duplication and investigation.
Closely collaborate with Intel silicon enabling, firmware development, and various components teams including storage, network, power & performance, I/O and silicon debug teams to troubleshoot and debug cross-discipline and complex integration issues on server platforms
Define and drive the system debug process implementation and ingredient owner engagement/alignment.
Contribute to the definition of new platforms with software architecture and development teams, support platform bring-up activities, review designs and code changes
Contribute to validation team on improving test plan/method to validate features and verify fixes
This job is reserved for the person who is always passionate to putting new technology into practice in the fastest manner, exploring all possible alternatives for better solution, and pursuing constant improvement on test efficiency and coverage.
You should possess a Master of Science degree in in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science or relevant technology with 7+ years of applicable industrial experience, or bachelor in aforementioned area with 10+ years of applicable industry experience. Additional qualifications include:
Strong low level debugging skills that enable the root causing of issues at the firmware and hardware level and Operating System (OS) internals. Excellent programming skills (e.g. C/C++) that enable the source code level fixing of issues.
Good experience at model-based problem solving that enable the effective investigation and narrow-down of complex issues and proper.
Solid understanding of Intel Architecture, Operating System, Driver, BIOS fundamentals, and FW fundamentals;
Good understanding (and better hands-on development/validation experience) of popular server/PC technologies including PCI/PCI-E, USB, SAS/SATA, i2C/SMBUS, IPMI, BIOS/EFI and DIMM, Storage, Networking, Virtualization, Manageability, Security, RAS, etc;
For BIOS domain candidate, good x86 server BIOS development background and debug experience with Intel XDP is a must. Experience of ACPI, PCIe, RAS, security, NVRAM etc is a plus;
For OS domain candidate, experience on Windows kernel debug and/or Linux kernel debug is a must; Experience of debugging/fixing Linux system power and performance issues is a plus; Experience of Linux kernel upstream development is a plus;
For Hardware and I/O domain candidate, good knowledge and 3+ years enabling experience of hardware I/O or devices is a must, including but not limited to Intel RSTe, SSD technology, SAS and/or Networking (IB, 10Gb/40Gb Ethernet etc) ; server baseboard design experience is a plus;
For Server Management domain candidate, good understanding and development experience of IPMI, redfish, NCSI, Node Manager and data center management philosophy is expected
Experience with ITP and script language is highly preferred.
Experience with PythonSV and programming with Python is a plus.
Experience on silicon level debug (e.g. AFD - Array Freeze and Dump, and its analysis) is a good plus.
Demonstrated capability to work within a team environment facing fast-changing requirements and complicated stakeholders.
Good English verbal and writing skills.
