Zama's Hardware team stands at the vanguard of creating an accelerator tailored for FHE on FPGA, encompassing the gamut from algorithm comprehension to the holistic development of the solution. As a core member of a dedicated team of 3 to 4 experts, your expertise will be instrumental in shaping the accelerator for FHE. Your collaboration with other teams, especially our research teams, is essential for the fruition of this pioneering initiative. Possessing a deep mastery in FPGA development and high-frequency hardware architecture is imperative. Given Zama's cutting-edge stance on homomorphic encryption, this role offers a unique challenge—innovatively implementing complex computations on hardware. A comfortable grasp of mathematics will stand you in good stead in this endeavor. You will:
Lead the development of vital functionalities of FHE on Xilinx Ultrascale+ FPGA, which includes designing both macro and micro architectures, crafting RTL in SystemVerilog, testing via simulations, and synthesizing on the target FPGA.
Oversee the FPGA bring-up, ensuring smooth execution and optimal performance.
Play a pivotal role in shaping benchmarks, aligning them with project objectives and industry standards.
