Do you have a strong interest in architecting software solutions? Are you fascinated by the unleashed compute power in FPGA’s and the technological opportunities in IoT, 5G and Cloud? Can you guide a team into new technology areas by means of team collaboration and motivation? Then you are the one we are looking for.
Napatech is the world leading provider of FPGA based SmartNIC solutions used for optimizing performance and improving security in the network infrastructure we all rely on, such as the Internet and 5G mobile networks. Napatech solutions are used by market leading OEM’s in telecom, enterprise and finance sectors as well as by some of the biggest cloud and social media providers in the world.
New fast growing markets like IoT, 5G and Cloud where solutions are offered “virtualized” and “as-a- service” have positioned software and FPGA as key elements in a new compute platform becoming the defacto standard in the industry. Napatech’s software/FPGA platform as well as our daring ambitions have paved the way for Napatech to be a dominant player in these growing markets.
Setting the technology direction together with a team of highly skilled SW, FPGA and HW developers
As Software Product Architect you be responsible for defining and architecting the advanced product solutions based on software and FPGA IP elements for networking (e.g. Ethernet, TCP/IP and virtual network switching) and compute (e.g. data compression and IPSec) to secure Napatech a continued technology leadership position. Your primary focus will be on the software part.
You will be reporting to our Chief R&D Officer and be part of our Office of Technology together with a small team of peers. You will have a close relationship with the other functions in R&D (SW, FPGA, HW, Test, Project Management and Tech Support) playing a critical role in maintaining technology expertise, agility and motivation cross R&D.
You are responsible for compiling technical requirements for the product architecture through dialogue with their Product Managers, leading customers and technology partners.
You will be working closely together with a development team with highly skilled software, FPGA and HW developers acting as “technical playing coach” guiding the team through definition of the architecture and implementation of solutions based on the defined architecture.
Together with your peers in the Office of Technology you will participate in implementing “best-in-class” methodologies and tools for product architecture based on agile principles.
You will have the opportunity to engage with and influence leading international technology providers and customers as well as ecosystem partners in open source communities.
Product Architect with strong software background
We expect you have a proven track record as Product Architect or System Developer originating from the software industry. Alternatively you have a strong background as Senior Software Developer with a keen interest to take your career to the next level as Software Product Architect.
You lead “by example” and show courage by leading the way for the team. You have a structured and analytical work approach.
We imagine you have an educational background as M. Sc. EE or similar and have insight into network technology (Ethernet, TCP/IP) and servers at system level as well as Linux at OS level.
An extra plus if you have experience with FPGA/ASIC IP technology or hands-on experience with datacenter network infrastructure (e.g. virtual network switching and network security) or software deployment in Cloud.
Position with an international reach in a ”flat” non-political organization
We offer a position with an international reach to colleagues, customers and partners in Denmark, Europe, USA and Far East. Our organization is “flat” and non-political.

A portfolio that has secured Napatech a growing market position with an industry recognized brand, and above all a very successful business.
Napatech's business is served by in-house developed high performance SmartNIC solutions. SmartNICs bring value to customers by offloading workloads from processing by expensive and power-hungry server CPUs to efficient and less power-hungry processing in FPGAs. SmartNICs are deployed in most of the data communication networks we all rely on in our daily life such as the Internet and most Data Center and telecom networks.
Napatech’s SmartNIC technology platform is based on advanced in-house developed HW, SW and FPGA IP created by our ambitious and skilled R&D engineers in close co-operation with international technology providers such as Xilinx and Intel.
