Job Description

Sr Hardware (ASIC/FPGA Engineer)

We are a leading high frequency trading firm with a global presence. We are looking to add a key engineer to a brand new team for our firm in Austin, TX.  This person will have multiple years of experience as a Sr ASIC Engineer.  Ideally you will be part of a smaller team of hardware engineers (around 5) as we would like someone who has worked on an entire system as opposed to an engineer who is an expert on one piece of the pie.  

In this role, you will be tasked with physical design, coding, iterations, synthesis, and more.  At this level, we would expect you to have worked with vendors and taking project leadership.  You will also be working closely with numerous units within the firm (software engineers, quant researchers, traders, etc.). 

If your background has been focused on FPGA development in a similar capacity that may work too!  Please apply. 

Outside of a very generous comp package, you will enjoy excellent benefits, 401K match, and some incredible perks.  

Job Requirements


  • BS degree in Computer Science and/or Electrical Engineering 
  • Experience designing, coding, testing, and verifying FPGAs and/or ASICs.
  • Verilog, VHDL, SystemVerilog 
  • C++, C, and/or Python
  • Bonus points for being experienced with reducing latencies by multiple clock cycles




Meet Your Recruiter

Rolf Otten
Technology Recruiter



In 2004, shortly after graduating from NIU's College of Business, my recruiting career at CPS, Inc. started. During this time, I have been able to learn from some of the best recruiters within the industry and continually look to improve myself in order to better serve both the candidates and client companies I represent. 

I partner with several of the leading tech firms in Chicago and across the country in helping them secure hard to find technologists.  These companies are in a variety of industries: Financial/Trading, E-Commerce, Data Analytic, Ad-tech, Education Tech, SaaS, Hedge Funds, and more. 

The positions I work include: Software Engineers (C++, Java, C#, Python, Ruby, etc.), Network/Systems Engineers, DevOps, DBA's, Data Scientists, and more. 


About me: 

I grew up in the west suburbs of Chicago just blocks from the famed Brookfield Zoo. I enjoy spending time with my wife and our three children and try to keep up with all of their activities. I try to remain as active as possible and enjoy all things "sports". You can find me at Soldier Field for most Bears games and will never say no to a good chicken wing.
