The Applied Architecture team at Xilinx is looking for a design engineer to architect and implement domain-specific hardware accelerators. Application domains include machine learning, digital signal processing, and networking.

Through applications that we publish in conferences, we demonstrate hardware and software design best practices to use Xilinx products effectively. What distinguishes our work from a typical design team is that we apply lessons learned from our projects to architect next-generation products.

We are looking for people who are curious, imaginative, analytical, and persistent. We enjoy working with people who can state problems and propose solutions analytically in a collaborative environment.

Although this position is nominally a hardware position because our work does require hardware design skills, we are particularly interested in people who enjoy creating hardware that is intuitive to program. 

At Xilinx, we are leading the industry transformation to build an adaptable, intelligent world. ARE YOU bold, collaborative, and creative? At Xilinx, we hire and develop leaders and innovators who want to revolutionize the world of technology. We believe that by embracing diverse ideas, pushing boundaries, and working together as ONEXILINX, anything is possible.

Our culture of innovation began with the invention of the Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA), and with the 2018 introduction of our Adaptive Compute Acceleration Platform (ACAP), has made a quantum leap in capability, solidifying our role as the adaptable platform supplier of choice. From the start, we have always believed in providing inventors with products and platforms that are infinitely adaptable. From self-driving cars, to world-record genome processing, to AI and big data, to the world's first 5G networks, we empower the world's builders and visionaries whose ideas solve every day problems and enhance people's lives.

If you are PASSIONATE, ADAPTABLE, and INNOVATIVE, Xilinx is the right place for you!

At Xilinx we care deeply about creating meaningful development experiences while building a strong sense of belonging and connection. We foster an environment of empowered learning, wellness, community engagement, and recognition, so you can focus on work that matters - world class technology that improves the way we live and work. We are ONEXILINX.
