Job Description

As a member of the Pre-Silicon Hardware, Networking and Xeon (PHNX) organization, you will be critical to the future success of Intel's SoC products by delivering the highest quality in our products. You will join a fast-paced, exciting, innovative environment leading an engineering team in Oregon. You will work on Intel SoC development projects through strategic partnerships with our global Architecture, Pre-Silicon, Post-Silicon teams as well as external customers in the Client, Data Center and Discrete Graphics segments. You will do this by providing Pre-Silicon Platforms throughout the product life cycle for software development, HW/SW co-validation, power/performance tuning of products at the right velocity.

Our FPGA and Integration team is a product execution team that delivers Pre-Silicon Platforms including: Simulation, FPGA, Emulation, and Hybrid Virtual platforms. These Pre-Silicon Platforms are critical to enabling SW/HW co-design and accelerate time to market for our SoC Products.

The team's primary responsibilities include: prototyping and emulation activities such as synthesis, FPGA prototyping modeling, validation collateral development (synthesizeable BFMs, protocol transactors, debug trackers, etc), logic design with Verilog, System Verilog, SW development with C/C++, SystemC, Python, Perl, and Pre-Silicon validation at the IP, Subsystem, Die, Platform levels.

We are seeking a passionate, energetic and strong candidate to lead the FPGA and Integration team in Oregon (FIT Oregon). You will lead a multi-domain team of HW and SW engineers who will primarily deliver FPGA Prototyping platforms that enable a variety of use cases including pre-silicon software development, system level power & performance exploration, architecture exploration, functional verification and validation.

As part of the PHNX FIT, we also invest in enabling forward looking FPGA and Emulation technologies, industry standards, and key infrastructure components development as well as managing EDA vendor relationships. Most of our development effort is in System Verilog, C/C++, and Python programming languages on Windows and Linux environments.

PHNX FIT is a highly exciting and challenging environment. We are exposed to broad scope of mission critical SoC challenges and are looking for qualified engineers with several soft skills including:

  • Demonstrated track record of leading a team and timely delivery of projects and products across multiple sites.
