Full Time
Bellevue WA
Posted 4 weeks ago

This position will be responsible for designing, developing, testing and releasing SOC FPGAs associated with leading edge battery powered, handheld consumer electronic products.   Responsibilities include:  System Architecture, FPGA SOC Architecture, FPGA RTL coding, FPGA simulation, FPGA physical design (synthesis, P&R), lab bring-up & validation and vendor interfacing.   In this role you will have autonomy and opportunity to lead and establish initial processes and mechanisms for developing and testing new FPGAs from the ground up.   The role will provide you with excellent experience in modern, handheld, FPGA/ARM SOC/RF products and IOT technologies.  The candidate for this position should be a senior FPGA engineer with excellent hands-on experience in the complete life cycle of a modern FPGA.  The candidate should have a track record of successfully designing for quality, test, manufacturing and volume. 

You will be joining a world-class team of RF, Hardware, Software, SaaS, and AI developers in an exciting new early-stage startup.  Lassen Peak will revolutionize the contentious and dangerous physical security procedure of a “patdown” with an electronic “virtual search” which will be faster, safer, and more socially accepted by all parties.  You will have significant leeway in your design project and will be able to make a huge impact on the company, business and market. We are looking for a proactive self-starter who is passionate about developing great product designs and about the space we are in.
