+ Ability to work across diverse teams within Qualcomm and engage with customers
+ Excellent oral and written communication skills.
+ Experience working with Automotive customers would be a distinct advantage with a strong focus on clear communication & strong inter-personal skills.
**Principal Duties and Responsibilities:**
+ Interact with customers and identify customers’ GPU and Display features to map customer’s use of SOC optimized for Qualcomm Auto SoC and its capabilities. Analyze and provide the appropriate feasibility, bandwidth, performance, and accuracy metrics. Be seen by the customer as the Qualcomm subject matter expert in these areas. Build collaborative relationships with engineers and product managers in customers and Tier-1s.
+ Interact, and drive respective internal GPU and Display IP teams to provide the direction on the future evolution of the Automotive focused on auto use cases and requirements, and optimum definition for the next-gen auto SoCs.
+ Lead early prototyping or pre-design award stage implementations with internal or external party (such as AD fusion prototyping work or other GPU compute benchmark/optimization exercise specific to automotive applications). In-depth analysis and optimization of GPU and Display use cases aligned with Qualcomm automotive roadmap cadence for IVI and ADAS.
+ Evaluation of 3rd party automotive applications (such as 3D map rendering, any proprietary GPGPU compute algorithm(s) targeted for ADAS use cases) requiring use of GPU, Display hardware
+ Apply his/her knowledge of GPU & Display architectures to drive the automotive roadmap for future enhancement to Qualcomm Auto SoCs
+ Experience working with Adreno GPU SDK is a plus
+ Loading and DDR bandwidth analysis of the 3rd party algorithms used in Automotive applications leveraging GPU compute blocks. Identify bottlenecks at the system and sub-block level at the Snapdragon SOC and drive resolution to meet customer needs. Provide recommendations for next-generation HW.
+ Work with Product managers to support product-level decision making.
