Senior Datacenter Product Development Engineer



Santa Clara, CA, USA
Posted on Tuesday, May 21, 2024

NVIDIA Corporation is a world leader in visual computing technology. The GPU, which the company invented, serves as the visual cortex of modern computers and is at the heart of their products and services. NVIDIA has transformed into a specialized platform company that targets four large markets – Gaming, Professional Visualization, Datacenter and Automotive – where visual computing is essential and deeply valued. Their work also uncovers new universes to explore and enable amazing creativity and discovery by powering what was once thought to be science fiction inventions like artificial intelligence and autonomous cars.

Collaborating with your peers across various engineering groups, you will successfully launch new boards for NVIDIA GPU Accelerated Server Platforms (HGX/DGX) to production. These purpose-built systems are optimized for the growing Deep Learning, Artificial Intelligence, and Analytics environments. With world-class technology enabling never-been-seen-before performance levels, NVIDIA’s HGX/DGX portfolio is arguably the most complicated Server platform ever developed by humans. This product family represents the company’s fastest growing line of business as well as its largest total available market opportunity. You will bring to bear your knowledge of Server architectures, CPU baseboards and GPU technology in order to productize new GPU boards for Server architectures with GPU-accelerated clusters. Your responsibilities will include planning and establishing processes, defining test requirements and optimizing the production line to deliver new NVIDIA GPU boards. You will also be instrumental in helping the team to achieve the desired cost and quality metrics considered best-in-class.

What you will be doing:

  • Leverage your in-depth experience with high-speed signals to plan and develop new diagnostic tests and debug procedures for next gen products.

  • Use your knowledge of system power-up and handshakes during boot to debug complex interactions between HW, FW and SW on faulty boards.

  • Recommend, drive and ensure compliance to DFx requirements for robust signal integrity performance as related to layout, mechanical components, assembly procedures, etc.

  • Own a product or series of products end-to-end through the entire product lifecycle; your role would be to ensure successful production ramps are achieved working through a large matrixed team.

  • Develop and deliver test specs for system level manufacturing screens for all new products to meet the required HW coverage, quality and product requirements for various business units.

  • Collaborate with CM to define product assembly line, number of test stations and number of assembly fixtures, optimized for cost and throughput.

  • Craft creative solutions and WARs through volume data analysis and lab experimentation to solve challenging yield and test problems seen on the production floor.

  • Lead optimization and continuous improvement efforts on the production screen spec definition processes to minimize waste and meet test time, yield, DPPM requirements.

  • Support customer facing and quality teams during customer escalations to understand the issue and fix gaps identified in coverage.

What we need to see:

  • BS/MS in EE/CE/CS or equivalent experience

  • 8+ years of experiences in HW design or diagnostics/validation or manufacturing test of PCIe IPs, Chips or Systems

  • Proficient in HW interfaces, including PCIe (Gen4+), InfiniBand, I3C/I2C, SPI, USB, etc.

  • In depth understanding of HPC server architecture and Out-of-Band management

  • Strong problem-solving and trouble-shooting expertise; and institutionalizing root-cause analysis

  • Experience in defining test and validation specifications for complex HW systems

  • Motivated to continually improve/optimize processes

  • Self-initiative, strong interpersonal skills, and flexibility to adapt to new technologies

Ways to stand out from the crowd:

  • Prior experience in HW board/system electrical design, HW device drivers or HW diagnostics software development

  • On-hand experience in debugging and triaging HW faults using testing equipment and Linux commands/tools

  • Proficient in Python or Shell scripting for HW testing automation and log parsing

  • Familiar with FPGA implementation, FW secure-boot and encrypted images

With competitive salaries and a generous benefits package, we are widely considered to be one of the technology world’s most desirable employers; we have some of the most forward-thinking and hardworking people in the world working for us and, due to unparalleled growth, best-in-class teams are rapidly growing. If you’re creative and autonomous with a real passion for your work, we want to hear from you!

The base salary range is 156,000 USD - 299,000 USD. Your base salary will be determined based on your location, experience, and the pay of employees in similar positions.

You will also be eligible for equity and benefits. NVIDIA accepts applications on an ongoing basis.
