Hardware Engineer - ASIC Design
Location: San Jose, CA 

What You'll Do
It used to be that high-speed packet forwarding was performed in dedicated ASIC designs. These days we are looking to make those ASICs more general and programmable. P4 has been proposed as a domain-specific language for this purpose. We are seeking an individual with significant compiler design expertise to work with a small team implementing the compiler back-end, where the intermediate representation from the front-end is applied to the target ASIC hardware.

Who You'll Work With
INSBU develops high-performance switches for the data center and for the cloud. You will be working with the team that develops the ASICs at the heart of each of these switch products. There are only a very few teams worldwide that implement such devices. Every time you access the Internet, chances are, your data's been through one of our switches.

Who You Are 
Job Responsibilities - develop and maintain platform for SDK and hardware abstraction layer. Support programmability in current generation ASICs.

Job Duties:
•        Identify hardware structures which can be abstracted out in form of APIs.
•        Design and develop P4 SDK APIs while maintaining backward compatibility. 
•        Support Software counterparts to enable efficient integration.
•        Implement high performance behavioral models.
