FPGA / ASIC design & verification engineer

Oslo / Full-Time

Graphcore has created a completely new processor, the Intelligence Processing Unit (IPU), specifically designed for artificial intelligence. The IPU’s unique architecture means developers can run current machine learning models’ orders of magnitude faster. More importantly, it lets AI researchers undertake entirely new types of work, not possible using current technologies, to drive the next great breakthroughs in general machine intelligence.

We believe our IPU technology will become the worldwide standard for artificial intelligence compute. The performance of Graphcore’s IPU is going to be transformative across all industries and sectors whether you are a medical researcher, roboticist or building autonomous cars.

Our team is at the forefront of the artificial intelligence revolution, enabling innovators from all industries and sectors to expand human potential with technology. What we do, really makes a difference.

As a FPGA / ASIC design and verification engineer, you will be working as part of Graphcore’s engineering team in Oslo developing Graphcore scale out technology for our Intelligence Processing Unit (IPU). In your work you will interact closely with the software and hardware teams to develop core IP and related components for our scale out solution.

In this role, you will be responsible for advanced random based test bench development as well as design of IP and verification IP targeted for high-end state of the art FPGA or ASIC based solutions. This includes development of high speed interconnect IP for our AI/ML scale out technology, and development of verification transactors and integration with library components for a System on a chip (SoC).


  • A solid background and expertise in FPGA/ASIC design and verification methods, preferably Verilog/System Verilog/VMM/UVM and a good understanding of computer architecture in general
  • Knowledge of PCIe, High-Speed Ethernet, and RoCE/IB, protocols will be an advantage
  • Experience with System On a Chip design and embedded processor integration will also be a plus

The position will work in a strong team in close interaction with colleagues in Bristol. This is a full time role based in Oslo (Norway).

We welcome people of different backgrounds and experiences and are committed to building an inclusive work environment that makes Graphcore a great home for everyone. We are an equal opportunity employer and want to build a work environment where everyone is happy, productive and respectful so they can do their best work. If you have a disability or additional need that requires accommodation, just let us know.
