The Electrical Engineering Department in the School of Engineering at Stanford University seeks a Senior Engineer whose primary role is to foster and grow the Open Source Networking Hardware Community. The Open Source Networking Hardware Project is a key initiative targeted at creating a massive, open source repository of computer networking hardware designs so as to enable researchers and students in the classroom to develop and deploy new ideas in networking hardware. The program started several years ago, and has been funded by NSF, Xilinx, Cisco, Google, Juniper, and several other companies. Currently, there are over 40 designs in the Open Source Networking Hardware repository. The program is currently focused on three tasks: (1) Building a worldwide, thriving “open-source hardware” developer community (2) Building, organizing and deploying an Open Source repository of Networking Hardware design modules that can be targeted at available Open Source Networking Hardware platforms like the NetFPGA, Xilinx XUP, etc. (3) Building a web portal, design repository, build environment and scripts to encourage user friendly design packaging and contribution, and (4) Getting the word out and evangelizing the benefits of the project to users and networking hardware design communities worldwide.
