Join us as a Principal Systems Development Engineer in the Telecom Systems Business Infrastructure Engineering team where you will play a key role in the definition and validation of our server, storage, and networking platforms.

What you’ll achieve

You’ll help drive the architecture and definition of next-generation server, storage, and networking platforms optimized for the telecommunications industry as well as validating various aspects of the hardware platforms. You’ll collaborate with product management, system level architects, and various development teams across Dell to engineer the platforms needed to make Dell and Dell’s telecom customers successful. You’ll form opinions on improvements to the architecture or to the system configurations, and you’ll help incorporate your opinions into the specification of future generations of the products. You’ll grow to become an expert in modern hardware architecture with a specialty in the 5G radio-access network (RAN) domain. You’ll engage internally across Dell’s engineering community, with vendors, and with customers. You’ll research differences in modern CPU architectures and the various trade-offs between compute performance, power consumption, thermal efficiency, and cost. You’ll have a hand in designing Dell’s products and, ultimately, in the emerging 5G networks across the world.

You will:

  • Participate in architectural discussions within Dell and with key vendors such as Intel and Broadcom

  • Apply telecom-specific requirements to ensure telecom-optimized functionality and performance

  • Collaborate with and be mentored by senior technologists with expertise in server architecture and in radio-access networks (RANs)

  • Drive independent research on the applicability of alternative hardware architectures in RANs, considering many design aspects across performance, power, thermal, and cost

  • Develop models to help predict design trade-off outcomes
