Systems Engineer – Automotive

Website MIPS Technologies

We’re taking RISC-V to new heights!

MIPS is seeking an Automotive Systems Engineer to focus deeply on understanding the technical needs, and future trends of the RISC-V space and create new products and innovative forward-looking product roadmaps to solve them.

You will:
Interface with key stakeholders (customer decision-makers, application engineers, marketing, management, sales, design engineers, technology development) to negotiate specifications, perform trade-offs, understand the competitive landscape, and ultimately develop detailed technical definitions for new products
Collaborate with the full development team (design, applications, test, product engineers) to deliver products to the market which are compelling, competitive, and importantly, successful in growing MIPS’s business
Assess and negotiate development tradeoffs with design teams and customers
Evaluate and measure systems solutions (hardware and software) and related documentation
Gather user requirements, translate them to functional specifications, and implement solutions and collateral
Perform troubleshooting and debugging on issues related to the system architecture
Analyze key end-designs to identify future trends, identifying opportunities for improving performance and adding value to these systems
Prepare the value proposition performance benchmark and end-user app-based reference design and architecture result
Work with partners to provide technical support to generate demos, technical reference design, and proof of concept

Ideally, you’ll have:
Knowledge of structured and/or object-oriented programming (C, C++) and signal processing tools (Matlab)
Experience and a deep understanding of Automotive System Architecture and detailed data-processing and algorithms from both the HW/SW perspective
Understanding of and experience with system design, including writing design specifications, developing algorithms and creating system reference models
Ability to establish strong relationships with key stakeholders critical to success, both internally and externally
Strong verbal and written communication skills to audiences of varied background
Ability to simplify complex problems and navigate uncertainty
Ability to quickly ramp on new systems and processes
Demonstrated strong interpersonal, analytical and problem-solving skills
Ability to work in teams and collaborate effectively with people in different functions
Ability to take the initiative and drive for results
Strong time management skills that enable on-time project delivery
Bachelor’s Degree (or foreign equivalent) in Electrical Engineering, Electronic Engineering, Computer Engineering, or a related field and 5years’ experience

A plus if you have:
Experience with system modeling
A mix of embedded processing and Linux programming
Safety and Security experience

Here’s what you can expect from us:
At MIPS, you’ll be a member of a fast-growing team of technologists that are creating the industry’s highest performance RISC-V processors. Small teams that are part of a non-compartmentalized structure – you’ll be able to understand and have an impact on the bigger picture. A great deal of autonomy, with support from some of the industry’s most experienced CPU engineers. An unlimited growth path – with the right skills, you can decide where you want to expand and grow in your role at MIPS. The opportunity to learn a great deal about the blossoming RISC-V architecture in cutting edge applications with industry leading customers.

At MIPS we provide meaningful benefits programs and products to our associates and their families. MIPS offers a competitive benefits package that includes medical, dental, vision, retirement savings, and paid leave!

More about us:
MIPS is well-known as a microprocessor pioneer, having led the way in RISC-based computing to enable faster and more power efficient semiconductors for a wide range of applications from consumer electronics to networking and communications. More than 30 years after the introduction of the original MIPS RISC architecture, MIPS processors have shipped into billions of consumer and enterprise products.

Today, MIPS is once again leading a RISC revolution as we build on our deep roots to accelerate the RISC-V architecture for high-performance applications. We are focused on delivering our first RISC-V products: the MIPS eVocore processors, which provide a new level of scalability for high-performance heterogeneous computing. Because of our RISC heritage, deep engineering expertise, and proven technologies, MIPS can accelerate development and deployment of RISC-V based solutions.
