Job #2302: Chameleon Technologies is searching for a Firmware Engineer for building the next generation(s) of highly scalable datacenters that provide containers, virtual machines and bare metal services. Given the growth of our datacenters we are always investigating new hardware and software solutions to meet our scale and customer demand. This team is looking ahead at future Cloud technologies, both hardware and software, for enablement within our datacenters. This role focuses on cultivating new technologies for Rack Scale to reduce stranded resources (e.g. disk space or peripherals) by disaggregating monolithic compute nodes into pooled local storage or accelerators (GPUs/TPUs/FPGAs etc). A good example of what we do is device virtualization and emulation for economies of scale in our datacenters. This is a multi-year effort that consists of deep partnership engagements with multiple silicon companies, including collaborating on future hardware designs and software enablement. We are a very hands-on team with deep technical expertise in silicon, firmware, operating systems (Windows and Linux) and application stacks. This is a contract position in Redmond, WA.


We are looking for people who have a broad skillset, people who are willing to continuously learn new things, and people who are willing to jump in anywhere to help the project move forward. Specifically, we are looking for software and hardware engineers who can optimize workloads for future hardware designs, port workloads, create/run benchmarks, provide feedback to silicon partners, etc. What we can offer in return is a strong team that empowers you and challenges you to grow. We also offer you access to the latest hardware and software, often years ahead of the rest of the industry, and in many cases, you can shape these future designs by working closely with our silicon partners and software teams. If this excites you, we look forward to your application.
