Hardware Design Engineer (with some software too) NGCodec
THIS JOB HAS EXPIRED Founded in 2012, and funded since the beginning of 2015, NGCodec develops hardware to perform real time video encoding, focussing on HEVC/H.265. We are a world leader in implementing real-time 1080p60 and higher resolution encoding on Xilinx FPGAs, and target ASIC IP as well. NGCodec is not a fabless semiconductor company nor solely an IP company. We are pursuing exciting opportunities in cloud-based video encoding.
Our design methodology relies heavily on HLS (High Level Synthesis of C to Verilog), which gives us productivity boosts in both design and verification time. With the latest HLS tools we have proven that we are achieving these benefits.
Our engineering team, including HW design, SW design and encoder algorithm design, is a small and highly collaborative group of less than 12 engineers. We have developed the first two versions of our FPGA based encoder, and are now embarking on the next two versions in parallel. To help with this effort we are looking to expand our team of HW designers.
A qualified candidate for this job will be a seasoned HW designer, also with strong C++ programming skills, with a desire to work in a small, fast paced but fun startup environment. Experience with video, video encoding, HLS, FPGA development is a plus. See detailed description below. If you meet the requirements we would be happy to receive your resume.

- BSEE, MSEE with at least 5 years experience, including multiple chip design projects from inception to tape-out
- Experience in defining and implementing a hardware design starting from a written spec and/or software model
- Expert Verilog RTL designer
- Proficient C/C++ coder with recent programming experience (in order to be able to write HLS code)
Desirable Extra Experience:
- Experience with video encoding and decoding, especially H.264 or H.265
- Experience with High Level Synthesis
- Experience with Xilinx or Altera FPGAs, and synthesizing and implementing designs on FPGAs
P.S. We offer competitive salaries, above average stock options, and full health benefits

|Headquarters:||440 North Wolfe Rd.|
Sunnyvale, CA 94085
|Company Profile:|| -- Technology: H.265 video encoder IP for licensing to FPGA and SoC customers.
-- Business Model (Phase 1):Licensing semiconductor business model (like ARM). Upfront License fee (multiple M), annual support and maintenance (multiple K), per unit royalty (multiple cents).
-- Business Model (Phase 2): Stealth mode, ask us in person.
-- Our Edge: Low latency; system power consumption; compression efficiency; real- time in a FPGA; existing customer relationships. We are the only team that has delivered 20ms glass-to-glass low latency over a wireless link. Very important for live video and VR applications. 4th Gen design allows us to lower system power consumption. FPGA encoders are 10x the efficiency of SW encoders.|
