FPGA Design Applications Engineer

Job Description

Do you enjoy designing with FPGAs? Would you like to be part of passionate and highly talented team of applications engineers working on the next generation technologies that will transform the industry?

Intel Programmable Solutions Group (PSG) is leading the way to transform the Datacenter with a portfolio of FPGA (Field-Programmable Gate Array) accelerated platforms and solutions for cloud infrastructure processing.

In this position, you will be joining the Customer Experience Group as an FPGA Design Applications Engineer specializing in systems featuring Intel processors, FPGA based accelerators, and application software.

A successful candidate is a designer who is interested in increasing their knowledge in FPGAs and is ready to take the challenge of working hands-on with systems that feature FPGA, memory, host PCIe (Peripheral Component Interconnect Express), networking (for example: Ethernet MAC (Media Access Controller), etc.), and custom IP.

Your responsibilities will include, but not be limited to:

  • Becoming a subject matter expert on using the technology and providing feedback on how to make it easy to understand and to use.
  • Developing technical assets such as user guides, application notes, design examples, demos, and training that will enable users to successfully design with our products.
  • Responding to customer technical questions, debug, reproduce customer issues, and drive issue resolution.

The ideal candidate should exhibit the following behavioral traits:

  • Willingness to create customer ready material (including strong technical writing and communication skills).
  • Driving an issue to resolution by working with a cross-functional group of stakeholders. 


You must possess the below minimum qualifications to be initially considered for this position. Relevant experience can be obtained through schoolwork, classes, project work, and/or internship experience. Preferred qualifications are in addition to the minimum requirements and are considered a plus factor in identifying top candidates.

Minimum Qualifications:

  • Candidate must possess a Bachelor's or Master's degree in Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, or related STEM fields (documentation related to Bachelor's degree completion will be required). 
  • Advanced English level.
  • 1+ year of experience with FPGA or ASIC design using Verilog/VHDL, simulation and timing closure.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Experience with AMBA (Advanced Microcontroller Bus Architecture)/AXI (Advanced eXtensible Interface) interface protocol.
  • Experience with FPGA designs interfacing with PCIe and DMA (Direct Memory Access).
  • Experience with system level debug for issues featuring both processors and FPGA.
  • Familiarity with network processing technologies such as OvS (Open Virtual Switch), NIC (Network Interface Controller).
  • Familiarity with host software stacks for infrastructure processing e.g. OvS, DPDK (Data Plane Development Kit), SPDK (Storage Performance Development Kit), Linux based virtualization, and orchestration.

Inside this Business Group

The Programmable Solutions Group (PSG) was formed from the acquisition of Altera. As part of Intel, PSG will create market-leading programmable logic devices that deliver a wider range of capabilities than customers experience today. Combining Altera's industry-leading FPGA technology and customer support with Intel's world-class semiconductor manufacturing capabilities will enable customers to create the next generation of electronic systems with unmatched performance and power efficiency. PSG takes pride in creating an energetic and dynamic work environment that is driven by ingenuity and innovation. We believe the growth and success of our group is directly linked to the growth and satisfaction of our employees. That is why PSG is committed to a work environment that is flexible and collaborative, and allows our employees to reach their full potential.
