Intel Senior Platform Performance Modeling Engineer in Raleigh, North Carolina

Job Description

The world around us is changing and FPGA devices are at the forefront of how we use technology to make our lives better. Because these devices are programmable and flexible, there are infinite possibilities to use FPGAs to bring new capabilities to life. And now that Altera has teamed up with Intel, FPGAs and CPUs are being used together in innovative ways making the possibilities limitless. Intel is looking for curious, creative and motivated people who have a passion for developing possibilities into products. If you are a senior engineer looking for a place to spread your wings, join Intel's Programmable Solutions Group (PSG) as a performance modeling specialist where you'll be challenged to improve next generation FPGA platforms through performance modeling and prediction of FPGA fabric logic, transceiver devices and associated platform interconnects . You'll decompose acceleration algorithms, identify and remove bottlenecks, analyze the performance on current generation architecture, create platform level models to accurately predict performance, correlate models and then use the models to predict behavior on next generation platforms. Based on what you uncover, you'll be influencing the development of new FPGA devices that will propel success in new markets like cloud services, communication, and edge computing. Must be able to lead teams, collaborate, build consensus, and influence.
