NVIDIA networking unit is a world-leader fast-growing company which supports the most powerful supercomputers in the world. We make outstanding artificial intelligence happen and accelerate Open-AI’s Chat-GPT, for example. We believe in our people and products and seek excellent people to join us!

We're looking for a hardware u/architect for our switch division. In this position, as part of a small (~6 employees) elite team, you will have the chance to define the architecture of NVIDIA’s next generation switch product lines, both Ethernet and InfiniBand. Your role will be cross-disciplinary, working with software, ASIC design, verification, physical design and platform teams.

What you'll be doing:

  • Learn and understand the switch u/architecture thoroughly across all aspects and become a source of information for the design and verification engineers.

  • Define the implementation of the most sophisticated features of our next products, balancing architecture requirements with backend, execution, and design considerations.

  • Understand our system requirement and help define the POR of our switch product line.

  • Face the most challenging Full-Chip correctness and performance issues, which cannot be handled by the units’ designers as they require full cross-unit understanding of the chip.

  • Work closely with board and package design to understand the different design limitations: power, di/dt, temperature, signal-integrity etc.

  • Thoroughly understand Ethernet, InfiniBand and NvLink protocols.

What we need to see:

  • B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering or equivalent experience

  • More than 7+ years of experience in ASIC design

  • At least 4 years of hands on experience in writing Verilog/VHDL

  • Strong analytic capabilities, and passion for solving logical issues

  • Ability to drive complex activities involving many interfaces and teams

  • Good communications skill

Ways to stand out from the crowd:

  • Knowledge in switching fabrics with strict performance requirements. (Networking, SOC connectivity, etc)

  • Experience as an HW-architect.

  • Familiar with working on large high-end ASICs.
