  • Understand HW features and technical requirements to implement diagnostic tests and SW architectural solutions that support robust testing of SRIOV hardware features in conjunction with system firmware/software
  • Support and resolve customer issues, including investigation and debugging of diagnostics source code
  • GPU bring-up and support activities
  • Root cause and solve HW and SW/FW problems with proven debugging and test experience
  • Analyzing fall out boards to identify opportunities to improve execution time and effectiveness of diagnostics coverage

  • Familiarity with GPU and CPU architectures
  • Experience with software development and debugging in Linux
  • Source control systems (e.g. git)
  • Experience in SR-IOV industry standards and virtualization architectures (SW and HW) is a plus
