Xilinx seeks high calibre 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.
The role will involve working closely with different teams both within the Cambridge office and more widely with Xilinx sites worldwide: working closely 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 have worked extensively at the hardware / software interface involving networking in some capacity, programming in C.
To be successful you will have the ability to quickly understand a complex hardware and software architecture. You will be able to tackle system level problems and demonstrate knowledge of relevant embedded debug techniques and tools.
We are looking for embedded engineers with a very strong academic background in a numerical subject (e.g. maths, physics or computer science) or of similar calibre.
