Defensive Cyber Senior FPGA Firmware Engineer

Guildford

£££ competitive + market leading benefits package

My client supports the delivery of high-performance appliances for the Defensive Cyber market and are looking to expand their team with a Senior FPGA Firmware Engineer.

They develop from a blank sheet with security as a primary consideration, designing the whole appliance from high performance C++, embedded software, FPGA firmware (VHDL), custom PCBs, power distribution, and thermal management.

The Senior Firmware Engineer will be involved in the full lifecycle of product development, from concept, design, through delivery, and into support. They predominately use Intel (previously Altera) FPGAs, with code developed using VHDL.

This is predominately an active hands-on role and as such, solid experience with VHDL is a must, as is a familiarity with at least 1 modern FPGA tool chain (ideally Intel but could be Xilinx, Achronix, or similar). As with most current FPGA designs, we make significant use of the provided embedded blocks within those FPGAs, so any experience in integrating with these would be highly valuable.

As with most senior engineers, you would be expected to lead small teams of 1-3 junior engineers, and provide support and mentoring through their activities.

In return we offer engaging technical challenges to solve, a collaborative and trusted work environment and the opportunity to develop a career that can encompass the full range of the company's activities, form product development, research, technical consultancy, business consultancy, and customer engagement.

The package:

You'll receive a very competitive salary (£££ offered depends on level of experience) and other benefits including pension, life assurance and 25 days' (plus bank holidays). In addition there are other non-tangible benefits including a commitment to training, development and career development.

*** Please note this role require UK defence security clearance to SC level as a minimum, you must be SC clearable to apply for this role ***
