Job Summary


This engineer will join the Research and Development team that creates state of the art software for semiconductor analysis.

Innovation in semiconductor design and manufacturing enables smaller device architectures with higher performance and energy efficiency for powering the smart product revolution. The physics associated with shrinking geometries, especially in the emerging 3-D IC, FinFET and stacked-die architectures, bring out design challenges related to power and reliability, affecting design closure. Employer simulation and modeling tools offer the sign-off accuracy and performance needed to ensure power noise integrity and reliability of even the most complex ICs, taking into account electromigration, thermal effects and electrostatic discharge phenomena.

•Demonstrate expertise in the code and the team’s software development processes. Help to continuously improve both software and processes.
•Lead complex projects involving multiple developers in one or more areas of the product.
•Evaluate multiple approaches to technical problems and be able to recommend one solution after considering limitations and challenges.
•Build a deep understanding of the domain and the how the product fits into the user’s design flow.
•Communicate clearly with others regarding project status and risks, and to ensure that work is aligned with the business unit strategy.
•Serve as a role model for excellent software skills and a source of domain expertise within the business unit.
•Diagnose and fix code problems.
•Deliver code that meets requirements on schedule. Ensure that code is efficient, scalable, maintainable, extensible, robust and easy to understand.
•Optimize code to improve tool run time and memory capacity.
•Create unit, regression and/or system-level tests to thoroughly validate new features or changes.

•BS degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science or related field, with seven years experience
•Five years’ experience in C++ with broad and deep understanding of the language
•Strong working knowledge of the Linux operating system
•Strong background in data structures, algorithms, and debugging
•Solid understanding of electronic design at gate level and/or transistor level
•Demonstrated technical leadership, and successful delivery of projects involving multiple engineers.
•Ability to learn quickly, understand complex systems and to work closely with others across multiple teams
•Ability to handle uncertainty, time pressure and large technical challenges
•Ability to deliver high-quality work on time


Prefer PhD or MS degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science or related field. Minimum relevant work experience: PhD + three years, MS + five years

Demonstrated skills in the following areas are a plus:
•Successful large-scale commercial software development
•Development, debugging and optimization of systems using distributed processing
•Experience with the Python programming language
•Parasitic extraction for advanced semiconductor nodes
•Transistor-level simulation or analysis
•Gate level or RTL power analysis and/or optimization
•IC physical design
•Logic synthesis or equivalence checking
•GUI development for physical design or analysis tools
