We are currently seeking a Lead/Senior FPGA Engineer to join one of our trading teams.  While the firm has been leveraging FPGA technology for a number of years, you will have the opportunity to build an FPGA application from scratch for an existing team. We’re seeking a candidate that has a strong understanding of software and hardware interaction.  This person will participate in the full development lifecycle, including system and block level testing, of low latency high throughput FPGA design.

Responsibilities: 

  • Architect and implement new FPGA applications (synthesis, place & route, static timing analysis, documentation) from the ground up
  • Research and evaluate a variety of cutting-edge FPGA hardware and technologies
  • Propose creative solutions to overcome FPGA/hardware limitations
  • Liaise directly with software and other design teams
  • Conduct lab debugging and characterization of new hardware

Candidate Requirements: 

  • Bachelor’s degree or higher, Computer/Electrical Engineering with 3+ years of experience within the field; (Master’s degree or higher also counts for experience)
  • Solid Hardware Engineering experience, especially with FPGA
  • Highly autonomous with a can-do attitude able to lead an FPGA based project from system requirements to production
  • Strong capacity to quickly evaluate FPGA based project feasibility based on hardware limitation
  • Strong skills in RTL logic design (Verilog) and verification; 2+ years of experience writing Verilog
  • Experience in FPGA design flow including synthesis, place & route , static timing analysis is required
  • Experience with the design of system-on-chip (SOC) architectures, memory & processor subsystems, networking, and peripheral interconnect is required
  • Knowledge of the TCP/IP stack
  • Strong working knowledge of either XILINX or ALTERA FPGA design flow
  • Experience with functional verification utilizing high-level methodologies (e.g. System Verilog) is a plus.
  • Excellent research and data gathering skills
