Oxide is seeking hardware engineers to join us in building the next generation of rack-scale, fully-integrated machines.
As a hardware engineer working at Oxide, you will:
Be involved in all aspects of server and/or switch design, including mechanical, thermal, signal integrity, electrical
Work with software engineers to co-design a system, finding ways to solve problems by making software and hardware cooperate rather than operate at cross-purposes
Lead a joint design manufacturer to assist in the design and manufacturing of our first product
These responsibilities are just a starting place! We’re a small company, we don’t have rigid roles, and we have a lot to do – we can help you grow wherever your interests take you.
You will thrive in this role if you:
Get excited by the prospect of hardware/software co-design – and especially at innovating at their interface.
Have domain expertise (electrical, mechanical, etc.) but enjoy cross-disciplinary work with a broad team.
Believe in fully documenting your ideas.
Enjoy reading the documentation produced by others.
Like working from first principles, wanting to really understand reference designs rather than blindly copy them.
Get excited about a wide range of technical topics and dig really deep into them.
Are very comfortable at a Unix terminal (but also know when to spin up a Windows VM to run necessary EDA tools!).
Don’t mind coworkers getting really excited about decades-old computer front panels.
Life at Oxide
We are very explicit about our values, and they can be seen in daily life at Oxide, for example:
Our rigor means we enjoy and take pride in the craft of engineering.
Our urgency means that we are not above the judicious short-cut.
Our versatility is reflected in our greatest strength: the breadth of our team.
Our transparency can be seen in our consensus-driven RFD process.
Our responsibility means that we both lead and follow: we have our own domains, but we also help others on their parts.
Our curiosity shows in our insatiable desire to learn – and our empathy in our love of teaching others.
Our humor is a big part of our daily lives: we are inveterate wise-crackers whose video meetings spill into simultaneous text chat.
Our values also manifest themselves in our benefits:
Everyone makes $180,250, regardless of location.
We offer the best health insurance we could find: medical PPO plan, dental, and vision that are 100% covered for both employees and dependents.
We are very supportive of remote work. About half of our team is outside of the San Francisco Bay Area; our only requirement is working hours with a significant overlap with Pacific Time.
Our families and lives outside of our jobs are very important to us; our schedules are flexible to reflect and support that.
