Do you enjoy hacking and tinkering at the lowest levels of software? Are you capable of crafting and implementing creative secure firmware solutions in heavily resource-constrained environments? If so, you’re primed to help develop the boot software that powers the world’s best GPUs. We are searching for an outstanding software engineer to fill a challenging, yet fun role on our GPU Firmware team in our Taiwan, Taipei Office. You will be joining a team whose primary mission is solving the intricate enigma of securing and innovating the boot process for our GPUs, while dealing with the formidable constraints of boot-time and storage space. Every. Byte. Counts.

This is your chance to create waves in the industry while directly working with and alongside some of the most top-valued diverse minds in the graphics software and GPU business. Your goal will be to craft the future of graphics and computing technologies doing exactly what you enjoy: solving puzzles. If this sounds interesting and you’re up for the task, we’d certainly like to hear from you!

What you'll be doing:

  • Design, develop, test, debug, and optimize creative solutions for GPU firmware throughout the entire GPU family lifecycle

  • Continuously evaluate and improve the security posture of firmware and hardware that form the root of trust for our products across all our product segments

  • Work closely with hardware, software, infrastructure, and business teams to transform new firmware features from idea to reality

  • Interact with leading OS, PC and data center vendors to improve and innovate on the startup experience

  • Improve team software process and core infrastructure via projects dealing with build systems and auto testing farms

What we need to see:

  • BS or MS degree in EE/CS/CE (or equivalent experience)

  • 4+ years' experience in developing device BIOS, firmware, or other low-level (HW control) software

  • Familiar with industry standard including SPI, I2C and specification of PCI-E, UEFI and PLDM

  • Deep understanding of software process including requirement analysis, data formalization, interface design and test plan

  • Strong C skills

  • Even stronger interpersonal skills

  • Secure software fundamentals including cryptography, authentication/attestation, and chains of trust

  • Easy to work with, as you’ll constantly work closely with both hardware designers and other software engineers to design, develop, and debug functional (and non-functional!) aspects of GPU subsystems

Ways to stand out from the crowd:

  • Experience in x86/RISCV/ARM assembly and knowledge of the PC/PCIe/UEFI architecture

  • A background with display technologies, DP, HDMI, and VGA/VESA specs

  • Experience developing for safety critical platforms or experience with formal verification methodologies and negative testing

  • Passion for your work

We are widely considered to be one of the technology world’s most desirable employers, and as a result have some of the most forward-thinking and hardworking people in the world working for us.
