Job Title: Senior Software Engineer - 8224

Job Duties:

This individual will be part of the Mentor FPGA Prototyping R&D team based in Tunisia. As a contributing engineer, the individual would participate in the design, specification, implementation, test, and maintenance of features for our FPGA Prototyping product. The team primarily develops a compiler for FPGA prototype systems. In multi-FPGA systems, the software flow compiles a design's high level description into a binary file that can be loaded and run on the FPGA-based hardware. The compiler partitions the design into multiple FPGA, and then routes signals between the FPGA over physical tracks on the prototype board.

The candidate must be proficient in C++ language programming and capable of development in a Linux OS environment. Knowledge of Python and Tcl is required, as well as experience in the use of FPGA development tools (Vivado for Xilinx and Quartus for Altera). The candidate should be a self-motivated team player who is skilled and productive at quality-oriented and performance-oriented software engineering. Since the overall team is present in multiple world-wide sites, the ability to communicate in both French and English is required. As a senior level position, it is expected that little guidance and training will be needed from management. The candidate should be a good communicator who asks questions about requirements when needed, and gets feedback on architecture and design ideas when needed.
