Job Description

As an embedded software engineer, you will design, integrate and validate embedded real-time software for disruptive technologies targeted for radio access technologies for 4G LTE/5G NR cellular systems. You will be responsible for design and integration of embedded software on Intel's hard processor systems targeted for FPGA SoCs. These technologies include, front-haul gateways, precise timing protocol (IEEE 1588), ORAN control and management planes and radio remote head (RRH).

Intel values and welcomes candidates with strong inter-personal skills who can work in a collaborative environment that is spread across multiple geographical locations. As an embedded software engineer within wireless system solution engineering (wireless SSE) group, you need to possess strong problem-solving skills to brainstorm ideas and drive a concept into a high-volume consumer product.


Required Skills:

  • Hands-on experience working with ARM SoC, soft-fabric Soc on FPGA or microcontrollers.
  • Working knowledge of real-time, embedded Linux kernel and device drivers.
  • Strong coding skills in C, C++, Python, and shell scripting.
  • Experience using JTAG emulators for debugging, IDEs and cross-compilation methodologies.
  • In-depth understanding of Linux Kernel architecture such as heap memory management, interrupt management, task and queue management, timers, file systems as well as fundamental concepts in pre-emption, multi-task scheduling, etc.
  • Experience with diagnosis of system issues such as hardware, kernel and application software level.
  • Experience with software profiling and optimization techniques.
  • Experience with QSFP, PCIe, GPIO, UART, USB, I2C, SPI, serial peripheral interface (QSPI) and drivers for high-speed DMA and memory-mapped system.
  • Prior experience in Linux kernel configuration and build.
  • Knowledge of networking concepts such as Ethernet, TCP/IP, VxLAN, Connection tracking, QoS.
  • Familiarity with test equipment (logic analyzer, spectrum analyzer, signal generator, oscilloscope).
  • Outstanding interpersonal skills combined with strong work ethics.
  • Familiarity with version control software, such as JIRA and GIT.

Desired Skills:

  • Experience with FPGA design flow and implementation of board design.
  • Hands-on experience in developing SoC using hard processor system (HPS) in FPGA
  • Expertise in one or more of VHDL, Verilog, System Verilog and System


  • Design and development of real-time embedded software such as developing device drivers, creating API and Hardware Abstraction Layer software for FPGA system-on-chip applications.
  • Developing test automation scripts for automation of lab test equipment.
  • Design and development of embedded real-time software for customized hardware platforms that integrates radio functionality ( ORAN Interface, interface to the digital front end, RF control functions.
  • Maintain the driver, libraries and build instruction of Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) and 5G SDK libraries for Intel's FlexRan software on Intel's servers.
