  • Participating in module level or sub-system test, validation, simulation for a specified functional block or sub-system
  • Implementing (synthesis, place&route), debugging, and verifying complex FPGA designs
  • Generating test plan, documentation, automated test scripts, and test results
  • Develop and debug software programs to configure complex FPGAs to drive validation test vectors and check/compare with expected results
  • In a research & development environment, interfacing with FPGA, ASIC, board level hardware, DSP, and software designers, to support hardware, software, and system development
  • Participating in sub-system and system level integration, validation and troubleshooting


    • High-speed digital logic debug and test with FPGAs
    • Understanding of Verilog, System Verilog, digital logic design, simulation and FPGA implementation (Synthesis, Place & Route)
    • Knowledge with commonly used FPGA devices (Intel or Xilinx FPGAs) and tools (Quartus or Vivado)
    • Familiarity with common lab equipment and tools
    • Able to program with common scripting tools such as python, tcl

      Experience and knowledge in at least one of the following areas:

      • Testing FPGA logic for wireless PHY, signal processing functions
      • Testing FPGA logic for Ethernet Networking and Switching


        • BSEE required with 1+ years in FPGA test and verification focus
        • MSEE a plus, with specialization in VLSI no experience required

          Since our founding in 2009, we've been on a mission to accelerate the pace of bringing fast and affordable internet access - and all the benefits it provides - to the 90% of the world's households who can't get it. Through a decade of R&D and more than $400M of investment, we've created an entirely unique next-generation fixed wireless access technology, powering our first commercial platform, Gigabit 1 (G1). It delivers a game-changing advance in broadband economics in both mainstream and underserved markets, using either licensed or unlicensed spectrum. G1 started production in mid 2021 and has now been installed by over 160 service providers globally. We're headquartered in Milpitas, California, with additional research and development in Pune, India.

          G1 has been developed by an incredibly talented and pioneering core technical team. We are looking for more world-class problem solvers who can carry on our tradition of customer obsession and ground-breaking innovation. We're well funded, growing incredibly quickly, maintaining a superb results-focused culture while we're at it, and all grooving on the positive difference we are making for people all over the planet.
