We are looking for an FPGA Engineer with experience implementing digital signal processing algorithms on FPGAs for complex optoelectronic systems

What you'll be doing:

    • Participate in all aspects of the FPGA development process, including FPGA architecture definition, code simulation, RTL development and verification, hardware validation and final testing

What you have:

    • Solid fundamentals in mathematics, digital signal processing and/or communication systems
    • 2-5 years’ experience writing RTL code in Verilog and/or VHDL
    • Experience with bring-up and debugging new hardware systems
    • Ability to deliver results in a very fast-moving environment
    • Desire to learn & implement groundbreaking new hardware technology
    • Ability to quickly produce thoroughly verified logic modules


    • Experience on Xilinx Zynq SoC devices
    • Experience with High-Level Synthesis tools for FPGA
    • Experience with interfacing JESD204b ADC/DACs
    • Knowledge of FFTs, correlators, polyphase filters, I-Q mixers, etc.
    • Knowledge of advanced verification techniques (transaction-level self-checking test benches, constrained random testing, etc.)

What's in it for you:

    • Be part of a fast paced and dynamic team
    • Very competitive compensation and meaningful stock grants
    • Exceptional benefits: Medical, Dental, Vision, and more
    • Unlimited PTO: We care about results, not punching timecards
