Hardware Architect / Engineer

Berkeley, CA | Full-Time


About Zendar:

At Zendar, we are working on a high-resolution imaging radar system that allows self driving cars to see through fog, rain and snow. We are a team of electrical engineers, mechanical engineers and researchers developing the next generation of radar technology.


Job Description:

We are looking for a Senior Hardware Accelerator Architect to join our growing team in Berkeley, CA. You will be responsible for designing custom digital hardware to accelerate our radar signal processing, imaging, and detection pipeline.

This role will involve exploring different architectures, implementing high-performance digital modules, and verifying/characterizing your designs. You will work closely with our imaging research team -- learning the processing pipelining and communicating the hardware capabilities and constraints.

Your responsibilities will include:

  • Defining the accelerator architecture and architectural tradeoffs
  • Implementing custom high-speed data-paths and data movement in digital hardware
  • Developing architectural models to describe the hardware
  • Developing tests to measure correctness of the hardware compared to a golden model
  • Identifying metrics and tests to measure the accelerator performance

Required Qualifications:

  • BS/MS in Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering
  • 5 years experience with custom data-path design for hardware accelerators (e.g. neural network, security, signal processing)
  • Excellent understanding of high-speed digital hardware fundamentals
  • Strong understanding of computer architecture fundamentals
  • Good software development skills: C++ and/or Python

Desired Qualifications:

  • PhD in Electrical Engineering or Computer Science
  • Experience working with or designing either memory controllers or networks-on-chip (NoC)
  • Familiarity with SoC design and integration

What We Have to Offer:

  • Daily catered lunch and a stocked fridge
  • Convenient location in Berkeley, CA
  • Competitive salary, benefits and equity
