Eindhoven, Netherlands


Our client is a startup company in neuromorphic computing, artificial intelligence and machine learning with locations in France, The Netherlands and the USA. For the R&D center in Eindhoven, Netherlands we are looking for SoC Architects to lead chip design developments, making use of revolutionary embedded artificial intelligence engines. Your SoCs will drive ultra low-power AI processing in devices in the remotest corners of the internet-of-things.
You will bring proven experience in architecting complex multi-IP SoCs for edge devices, such as security cameras, drones, cars, home automation systems, etc. Experience with artificial intelligence is appreciated, but not required. You will also bring deep understanding of silicon design processes and flows.



As a leading member of the engineering team, you will be responsible for the SoC architecture descriptions and related documentation. You will provide technical guidance to the company’s silicon development. You will drive the development of the company’s SoCs consisting of amongst others multiple artificial intelligence IPs.
The SoC Architect contributes to developing our roadmap for different families of artificial intelligence SoCs, in line with the requirements of various high-growth markets. The roadmaps take into account the technical and physical characteristics and constraints of e.g. silicon implementation processes, software development, and optimization techniques.
You will work together with an infrastructure team that provides the compute, integration, and test reporting resources. You will also work together with tooling teams that develop automated hardware construction tools. And you will work with application teams, both internal and with customers, who provide key insights on requirements, performance metrics, robustness, and stability of the company’s solutions.
