Xilinx seeks high calibre graduate software engineers to work on the design and implementation of embedded firmware for the Xilinx SmartNIC networking platform.
This is an exciting role in the Xilinx Datacentre Group based in the Cambridge UK office. You will be part of a key engineering team developing software for next-generation networking for cloud and hyperscale data centre operators combining software defined networking, network and storage offload and hardware datapath customization.
In this role, you will gain experience of working with different teams both within the Cambridge office and more widely with Xilinx sites worldwide, for example, working with the silicon team to refine the design and model the RTL, working with host driver teams to develop high performance network stacks and working with the system test to take products to release.
You will develop your software skills from design to implementation to test specification, learn to work effectively as part of large software team and gain broad and deep knowledge of new technology.
To be successful you will have the ability to quickly understand hardware and software. You will be able to tackle engineering problems and demonstrate software design skills.
We are looking for graduates with a very strong academic background in a numerical subject (e.g. maths, physics or computer science) or of similar calibre.
