Handle large-scale IoT infrastructure with FPGAs at the network edge



Due to the growing data volume and connectivity, businesses are increasingly required to build up enhanced real-time processing capabilities. FPGAs will become an integral part of tomorrow’s data centers, cloud services and IoT infrastructure, powering a broad range of constantly evolving business applications.

FPGA Technology in the Data Center

The FPGA technology can provide orders-of-magnitude acceleration to business-critical applications using Big Data analytics, machine learning, database management and to IoT infrastructures. FPGAs boost the energy efficiency of data center servers and can substantially reduce TCO.

Our Mission and Value Contribution

Despite the tremendous benefits delivered by FPGAs, there still exists a large gap between applications and the processor technology today. Xelera Technologies develops software to bridge this gap.

Join us

FPGA Engineer

Job Summary

We are hiring an FPGA engineer to support the development of our FPGA middleware and plugin portfolio for data center and cloud deployments.

Key Qualifications

You have a profound FPGA engineering background, with Verilog or VHDL experience and with the tools around the FPGA design cycle. Strength in high-level synthesis technology is a plus.


Depending on your background, you will either help porting customer applications from conventional processor technology to FPGAs, or work on novel methods to enable “as-a-service consumption” of FPGA accelerators in the data center and the cloud.

Software Engineer

Job Summary

We are hiring a software engineer to help us tying FPGAs closer to modern software stacks.

Key Qualifications

You have a solid background in software engineering, primarily with C/C++. You love Linux and hardware-near programming and have a good understanding of OS internals. Experience with parallel computing using OpenCL or CUDA is a big plus.


You will join our team working on frameworks for failure safety and workload deployment, life-cycle management, virtualization and open infrastructure on FPGA-enhanced data center servers.
