Description

Do you want to be part of a highly visible team that is surrounded by exceptionally talented people? Here, you will be working at the heart of our chip design efforts; where we are collaborating with all disciplines (vertical product model) and making a critical impact in getting functional products to millions of customers quickly. What does our SOC DV team do? Well, we're verifying high throughput complex SOCs, and you'll get to drive the pre-silicon RTL verification of the full chip. - We are working daily to ensure the quality of the SOC by working closely with the team in reviewing specifications, developing attributes, tests & coverage plans, defining methodology & test benches. - We have to closely align with our design & micro-architecture teams to understand the functional & performance goals of the design. - You'll have to stay abreast with design specs by conducting test plan reviews, developing block/full chip tests & triaging failures. - Your collaborative approach will be necessary in driving the verification efforts in your specific area. You'll also support gate level functional verification, run regressions, handle bug tracking, analyze code & functional coverage, etc. - Do you enjoy working independently too? You will get plenty of time to work on your tasks while still aligning closely with the project goals, and our multi-functional engineering efforts.
