Job Description


At Xilinx, we are leading the industry transformation to build an adaptable, intelligent world. ARE YOU bold, collaborative, and creative? We develop leaders and innovators who want to revolutionize the world of technology. We believe that by embracing diverse ideas, pushing boundaries, and working together as ONEXILINX, anything is possible.

Our culture of innovation began with the invention of the Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA), and with the 2018 introduction of our Adaptive Compute Acceleration Platform (ACAP), has made a quantum leap in capability, solidifying our role as the adaptable platform supplier of choice. From the beginning, we have always believed in providing inventors with products and platforms that are infinitely adaptable. From self-driving cars, to world-record genome processing, to AI and big data, to the world's first 5G networks, we empower the world's builders and visionaries whose ideas solve every day problems and improve people's lives.

If you are PASSIONATE, ADAPTABLE, and INNOVATIVE, Xilinx is the right place for you! At Xilinx, we care deeply about creating significant development experiences while building a strong sense of belonging and connection. We champion an environment of empowered learning, wellness, community engagement, and recognition, so you can focus on work that matters - world class technology that improves the way we live and work. We are ONEXILINX.

Our team is working on a system-wide compute domain-specific language based on modern ISO C++20 standard and Khronos Group SYCL standard to program advanced applications (machine learning, autonomous driving, networking, HPC...) our new ACAP Versal product in a unified way.

The goal of this internship is to increase performance of our SYCL open-source environment for heterogeneous computing targeted at the new Xilinx ACAP Versal systems.

The intern will work in the research labs interacting with different teams across Xilinx to improve the current triSYCL environment to work with our different frameworks.

The work might include improving the HLS frameworks and the open-source compiler Clang/LLVM to generate code to the targets, adapting the C++20 triSYCL runtime on our new platforms, working on some applications, improving the build systems and testing infrastructure...

The position is based in Dublin (Ireland) and suited typically for a PhD student in an area related to compilation for accelerators.

The candidate will have the opportunity to get involved into advanced technologies through the standardization committees of Khronos Group SYCL and ISO C++, and meet all the leading companies and laboratories behind these technologies.
