Weekly Hours: 35
Role Number: 200002558
Do your life’s best work here - with the whole world watching. This is a career defining opportunity to get in at the ground floor as we build our UK GPU Design Centre. At Apple, new ideas and complex challenges have a way of becoming phenomenal products, services, and customer experiences very quickly... The Graphics Verification Engineer will be responsible for the pre-silicon RTL verification of blocks in low power embedded graphics cores. This includes deep understanding of the micro-architectural details of their block and how it works within the broader GPU design. A strong computer architecture background, preferably in graphics, and a strong foundation in verification methodology will be used to close testing coverage with high confidence. You will have the following experience:

Key Qualifications

  • Expertise with verification language such as SystemVerilog/UVM/OVM, Verilog/VHDL; Specman experience is a plus
  • Expertise with HDL simulators and waveform viewers
  • Experience defining coverage space, writing coverage model, analyzing results
  • Experience working under strict schedule deadlines with the ability to handle multiple priorities
  • Graphics architecture and programming (OpenGL/OpenCL) highly desired. Strong knowledge of computer architecture, general purpose microprocessor and memory sub-system micro-architecture in lieu of graphics experience.
  • Experience with Perl, Shell scripting, Makefiles, TCL a plus
  • Excellent communication skills and ability to collaborate


Develop verification plans in coordination with design leads and architects. Create and maintain verification test bench components and environments. Generate directed and directed random tests. Run simulations and debug design and environment issues. Build functional coverage points, analyze coverage, and improve test environment to target coverage holes. Build automated verification flows for block verification. Apply knowledge of hardware description languages (VHDL/Verilog), hardware verification languages (SystemVerilog/UVM/OVM), and logic simulators to verify complex designs. Work with other block and core level engineers to ensure seamless verification flow.
