Job Description

Join Intel and build a better tomorrow. Intel is in the midst of an exciting transformation, with a vision to create and extend computing technology to connect and enrich the lives of every person on Earth. So join us and help us create the next generation of technologies that will shape the future for decades to come.
System Architecture innovations are key to positioning Intel for success in the fast-evolving workloads of tomorrow, and to differentiate Intel across the breadth of xPU architectures. Systems Architecture Lab (SAL) within Intel Labs has a strong history of research and development of high-impact technology innovations and collaborating with Intel product teams to incubate and productize these innovations in products across datacenter, client, and edge segments. As we expand our research across multiple technology pillars, we are looking for a motivated, passionate, and self-driven research scientist with breadth and depth across systems software, platform architecture, OS internals, I/O, CPU, and XPU virtualization, high-performance networking, cloud-scale architecture and modern software models such as containers, microservices, and cloud-native computing.

The candidate will be driving results-oriented and disciplined research on new systems-level innovations for at-scale distributed computing, through innovations spanning hardware/software interfaces for new hardware IPs and accelerators, datacenter interconnects/transports, SoC architecture, and distributed runtimes and orchestration software. The individual will study future trends and inflection points in the cloud workloads and infrastructure, and translate those insights into new research and architecture with hardware/software co-design, building a capable prototype to prove/vet concepts, engage key customers for feedback, and work with product teams and business unit collaborators to drive influence product roadmap intercepts. The candidate will be responsible for a variety of roles from driving workload/infrastructure analysis to identifying bottlenecks and optimization opportunities, researching new system architecture concepts, developing quality functional prototypes to vet architecture proposals, developing architecture specifications, and engaging broadly with domain experts across Intel to harness mindshare.

The ideal candidate should have a proven track record of contributions and expertise across multiple domains described above, and be willing to work across research, engineering, product, key customer, and academic partners. The candidate is expected to handle ambiguity and have the persistence to drive research and PoC, communicate effectively, be detail-oriented, and be passionate about transferring the output of disciplined pathfinding to improve the competitiveness of Intel products. Overall system architecture knowledge, and a good understanding of data center and cloud architectures will be required to succeed in this role. This is a hands-on role that needs the ability to switch between researcher, architect, and engineer mindset. Candidate must be comfortable working in a team setting spanning multiple geos, and interfacing with partners across teams involved in architecture, design, and software/FPGA development.


This is an entry level position and compensation will be given accordingly.
