FPGA Designer
Job Description and Skills

FPGA design:

We are looking for talented, enthusiastic, hardworking Scientists & Engineers at all levels with expertise in high performance FPGA design, DSP algorithm development and highly integrated SoC platforms to join our Firmware Team.
Your role in the design of complex FPGAs will form part of our self-protection systems installed on fast jet, UAV, land and naval platforms. You will get the opportunity to develop your skills in firmware design and with the latest FPGA technologies. You will work with the support of world class experts in their field, using world class facilities to deliver designs that meet challenging future customer requirements. Your role may even take you across the UK or abroad for technical reviews. We are interested in skills and experience primarily, an Engineering, Physics or Mathematics related degree would be an asset. Experience of design tools such as Xilinx TCL, Verilog, System Verilog, UVM and FPGA architectures such as Xilinx 7 and Ultra Scale will also be an asset. We will support your personal development with training and help you to work towards professional accreditation if you wish. We work in a modern, flexible environment that can accommodate your personal needs wherever possible.
