📍 Location: San Jose, CA, USA or Austin, TX, USA

📍 Position: Junior Performance Modeling Engineer

OPENEDGES is world's the only total memory system and AI platform IP solution company that has delivered NPU, memory controllers, DDR PHY, and on-chip interconnect IPs all together in one place since 2017.

Roles & Responsibilities:

OPENEDGES is currently seeking to build a team in the US with the goal of developing a configurable, cache-coherent Network-on-Chip (NOC) to add to its portfolio, enabling high-performance and highly efficient AI designs that require cache coherency. This is an exciting opportunity to work on a design from scratch that can significantly impact the field of AI. This role is based in San Jose, CA, or Austin, TX, with the possibility of hybrid/remote work.

As a Junior Performance Modeling Engineer, you will play a critical role in architecting the performance model for the cache-coherent interconnect NOC. This will involve collaborating with cross-functional teams to explore architectural and micro-architectural options, evaluate design alternatives and estimate performance. You will be part of the team that develops highly configurable and reliable performance models and its infrastructure that supports customers to arrive at an architecture configuration that suits their needs.

Your primary responsibilities will include:

  • Collaborating with cross-functional teams to develop performance models that drive the evaluation of new features and evolve into well-correlated models with our IP RTL designs

  • Modeling complex configurable designs and conducting performance analysis to inform architectural decisions

  • Conducting performance simulations and measuring alternative designs

  • Work with IP RTL and Verification team to conduct performance correlation and debug of the model with RTL for the different architectural configurations
