The Programmable Solutions Group at Intel is building 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 engineering team responsible for delivering results over many areas of the software lifecycle design, developing, debugging, testing, and optimizing customer engagement and product support for the Intel Open FPGA Stack, OFS. The stack includes user level platform software kernel level drivers for interaction with FPGA shells and management APIs and libraries for integration with applications and orchestration frameworks
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.
