Basler is a leading international manufacturer of imaging components for computer vision applications such as cameras, lenses, frame grabbers, software as well as embedded vision solutions, customized products, and consulting services. The products are used in a variety of computer vision markets, including factory automation, medical, traffic, logistics, retail, and robotics. Founded in 1988, the Basler Group employs approximately 800 people at its headquarters in Ahrensburg (near Hamburg) and other locations in Europe, Asia, and North America.

Around 50 team members work at the Mannheim site in Baden-Württemberg, most of whom are active in R&D. The focus of this site is on the development of frame grabbers and interface cards as well as the corresponding software.
As an FPGA Developer, you will be a permanent member of the Frame Grabber team, which is mainly located in Mannheim. You have the option of establishing your workplace in Mannheim or Ahrensburg.

Your responsibilities

  • As an experienced FPGA Developer, you will join an interdisciplinary team of nine people responsible for developing high-speed image capturing and processing systems.
  • Within the scope of product development, you will be responsible for the FPGA-specific development of interface modules and function blocks. Your key responsibilities within this area will be as follows:
    • You will develop solutions for current and future frame grabber generations, with a focus on Xilinx Ultrascale+ FPGAs.
    • Your tasks will include creating interfaces for the latest camera interfaces such as CoaXPress and 10 Gigabit Ethernet Vision.
    • You will ensure the integration of DDR4 memory and data transfer via PCI Express Generation 3 and 4.
    • Your duties will include developing an architecture for internal data structures for metadata processing.
  • In addition, you will be responsible for the development of image pre-processing applications using the high-level FPGA programming environment VisualApplets and TCL.
  • Quality assurance relating to FPGA development – through simulation, verification, and unit testing – will also form an integral part of your job description.
  • You will take responsibility for development tasks and draw up specifications together with the architects and project management.
  • Last but not least, you will further strengthen our creative team, put forward your own suggestions, and support efforts when it comes to structured development.

Your profile

  • To be considered for this role, you will require a degree or comparable vocational qualifications in the field of Electrical Engineering or Computer Studies.
  • This will be complemented by a very good understanding of digital circuit design and the ability to deal with complex digital architectures and data pipelines.
  • Experience in FPGA development with VHDL/Verilog, ideally underpinned by hands-on knowledge of image processing and FPGA, is equally important.
  • Proficiency in the use of Xilinx Vivado is essential.
  • You will have to be confident in programming with C / C++.
  • Knowledge of TCL and high-level environments such as Python will score you additional points.
  • You should enjoy working on a technically complex, highly innovative product – with the ability to keep a cool head even in critical project phases.
  • At the same time, you will appreciate well-structured processes and know how to implement them successfully.
  • Finally, you will require solid English language skills.

  • First-class IT equipment, including notebook, mobile phone, mobile working, and a modern working environment. 
  • Fair remuneration with internal wage transparency, flexitime account for overtime reduction, 30 days of vacation, and open communication: on first-name terms from trainee to board member.
  • Our "new normal": a hybrid working model is to be introduced, enabling you to choose your working location even more flexibly in future – with the prospect of a mix of in-office work and mobile working from home or on the road.
