The Facebook Reality Labs team is building products that make it easier for people to connect with the ones they love most. We are a team of world-class experts developing and shipping products at the intersection of silicon, hardware, software, and content. Facebook Reality Labs team seeks a Silicon Prototyping (FPGA) Engineer. Our End-to-End (E2E) proto team enables this testing by creating systems from a mix of off-the-shelf components, internal IPs and SoCs at various maturity levels, and representative mock-ups for new investigations. A successful candidate will be a FPGA/Emulation platform builder, comfortable working on boards, sensors, displays, RTL design/verification, CV/ML/Gfx algorithms, virtual platforms, OS/RTOS kernel and driver software and architectures, and who hears “its too early” as a personal challenge. The position requires a developer, able to debug and extract solutions from vague descriptions of system architecture and workloads, who also builds impactful relationships across teams to find ideas, assets and assistance to explore faster.

Silicon Prototyping FPGA Engineer Responsibilities:
  • Own IP/SoC pre-silicon deployment efforts and ensure timely delivery of FPGA systems to end users
  • Create proof of concept at system and application level for silicon that does not yet exist
  • Develop prototyping strategies, including hardware architecture, component selection, software enablement and mitigation approaches for maturity issues
  • Come up with solutions to effectively model the end-systems using FPGA (or Emulator, Virtual Platform, and other prototyping means)
  • Work closely with product engineers, algorithm engineers, software engineers, architects and designers to quickly prototype new end user experiences and features

Minimum Qualifications:
  • Master’s degree in Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering or similar Engineering field or BS and 5+ years Industry experience
  • Project Management experience
  • FPGA prototyping experience on platforms such as HAPS or Protium as well as experience with compilation, debug, performance, and throughput tuning
  • Experience building FPGA prototypes mixing FPGA/emulation based designs and off-the-shelf components, system debug with logic analyzers, scopes, meters, protocol analyzer, etc.
  • Expertise in RTL development for custom FPGA prototypes and proficient in Verilog, System Verilog (Transactors)
  • Solid understanding of FPGA logic Synthesis, partitioning and routing and timing closure for FPGA Prototypes
  • Experience in scripting languages such as Python, and C/C++ at the kernel/device driver level
  • System engineering and system debug experience

Preferred Qualifications:
  • IP or system level FPGA design experience
  • Knowledge in SystemVerilog for design and verification, chip architecture, µArchitecture, design and UVM based design verification experience
  • Performance modeling and evaluation experience
  • Experience with IO’s such as MIPI CSI & DSI, USB, PCIE, LPDDR
  • Experience of dealing with ambiguity in a fast changing consumer electronics field
  • Experience working effectively as an individual and in a multidisciplinary international team
