    OpenTitan: Open source silicon root of trust

    lowRISC | Non-profit | Cambridge, UK | Zurich, Switzerland | Design Verification Engineers | Infrastructure Engineer | HYBRID | Full time

    lowRISC's mission is to bring open source silicon to the hardware world and see it shipping in volume in commercial applications. We want to see open source silicon occupy a similar position to open source software (e.g. look at Linux, it's the default choice in many applications, we'd like open source silicon to be used for similar foundational technologies in the hardware world).

    Our major project focus is OpenTitan: it’s a silicon root of trust being built and funded by a collaboration of major companies, such as Google, Western Digital, Seagate, Winbond and Rivos amongst others. lowRISC stewards the project as well as performing a significant proportion of the engineering work.

    We’ve just announced the RTL freeze for the first OpenTitan tapeout, a discrete chip, named Earl Grey:

    We’re looking for verification and infrastructure engineers to join us. We work in System Verilog and use UVM, though plan to expand our use of formal verification. We’re also keen to explore new innovative ways to verify designs.

    A key responsibility for lowRISC is maintaining the CI and regression infrastructure for OpenTitan. This is a complex system running many different tools across different machines (both cloud and on-site) and involves FPGAs and custom hardware. We use ansible and terraform to manage it all. We’re seeking an infrastructure engineer to maintain and scale the system as well as architect and build new facets of it.

    lowRISC is headquartered in Cambridge, UK and we have an office in Zürich, Switzerland. We utilize a hybrid working model.

    We offer competitive salaries (see job ads for ranges) and a generous pension (12.5% employer contribution in the UK), you can find our individual job postings here:

    Feel free to email me at [email protected] if you’ve got any questions.

    bloop (YC S21) | Rust AI Engineer | Onsite | London, UK

    We're a YC + tier-1 VC backed startup, working on a AI chat assistant for software developers that can answer questions about any large codebase.

    About you: you hack around with GPT on the weekend, maybe you even fine-tune some of these new open source models. But you're also a solid programmer, capable of not just prototyping a nice demo but also shipping performant code that can scale. You're probably quite good at what you do, maybe you were top of your class, or maybe you rose the ranks to your comfortable management role, but yearn for the days of writing code, redbull and deploying on a Friday.

    We're a small team, looking for one individual to join us in London, in-person at least 3 days per week.

    Please reach out to me at join [at] bloop [dot] ai with "HN AI Engineer" in the subject line and a note about why this is exciting and a link to your portfolio or linkedin/resume.

    P.S. Our stack is Rust, so it's likely the role will go to a candidate with Rust experience but if you think you have something to offer that compensates for lack of Rust we should chat anyway!
