You will be required to design, architect and verify high performance FPGA based co-processing accelerated systems. This requires an underlying knowledge of FPGA architectures, tools and flows to map high speed designs efficiently and optimally onto the programmable fabric. Deep knowledge of TCP/IP, integrating and bringing up PCIe/Ethernet (1G/10) cores and high speed interfaces is required, with experience of x86 architecture on Windows a plus. You will be part of team bringing the vision from concept through to production including hardware selection, FPGA design, driver and API.
