NVIDIA is the industry leader in high performance computing, gaming and AI. Our GPUs and SOCs give outstanding performance and efficiency, revolutionizing myriad fields like cell research, robotics, crypto mining and so many more. We revolutionized the AI world by inventing CUDA. And we are just getting started. Silicon Solutions Group (SSG) is a multifaceted, multi-functional team at NVIDIA. We sit at the crossroads of design, architecture, marketing and productization. Our involvement begins at the arch stage and extends to defining final products. We architect and deliver innovative solutions for various markets like Gaming, Datacenters, Servers, Automotive and Embedded. We are fast-paced, dynamic, share a sense of humor and collaborate extensively to push the boundaries of what is possible. We do all of this with an eye on making ground-breaking impacts in the markets we serve. If this sounds like something you want to do, read on. In the role of Speed/Rel ArchDev lead, you will be architecting and crafting new features related to Speed, Timing and Reliability from ground up as you help turbocharge NVIDIA's chips into groundbreaking consumer, professional, server, mobile, and automotive solutions.

What you will be doing:

  • Creating new features and methodologies for NVIDIA products targeted for data center, consumer and automotive markets spanning broad areas, incl chip HW features as well as system features

  • Create system architecture plans on how the feature fits in the overall landscape, its cross-interaction with other system features, provide benefit trade-offs and drive to POR cross-functionally.

  • Prototype and fine-tune these on pre-production silicon (including test chips) fabricated using innovative processes for speed, performance, power, yield and quality.

  • Provide guidance to silicon facing teams on how to take the feature to productization, including hands-on bringup for feature validation.

  • Collate takeaways from silicon and correlate to design. Provide feedback to improve the feature in future, thus being responsible for the feature roadmap for all NVIDIA products.

  • Collaborating with the best minds in NVIDIA across various teams (System Architecture, PDE, Application Engineering, Product Manager, Sales, Operations) in a dynamic, creative work environment to bring industry-defining products to market.

What we need to see:

  • MS in EE, CE, Systems Engineering or equivalent experience.

  • 3+ years of experience in a related hardware engineering position.

  • Previous engineering xperience in architecting Perf/Power/Speed/Reliability features in CPUs/GPUs/SOCs. Experience spanning from concept all the way to product desirable.

  • Familiarity with STA timing closure, circuit design, noise characterization, product binning methods and/or performance/power optimization techniques.

Ways to stand out from the crowd:

  • Background with statistical methods and tools for data analysis.

  • Familiarity with substrate and power supply noise analysis and mitigation.

  • A "go-getter, can get it done" attitude and independent 'out-of-box' thinking.
