CAD Engineer- Web Developer
Austin, Texas, United States
Do you love creating elegant solutions to highly complex challenges? Do you intrinsically see the importance in every detail? As part of our Silicon Technologies group, you’ll help design and manufacture our next-generation, high-performance, power-efficient processor, system-on-chip (SoC). You’ll ensure Apple products and services can seamlessly and efficiently handle the tasks that make them beloved by millions. Joining this group means you’ll be responsible for crafting and building the technology that fuels Apple’s devices. Together, you and your team will enable our customers to do all the things they love with their devices. In this highly visible and cross-functional role as a senior member of our hardware CAD team, you will be responsible for developing best in class methodologies and flows for Apple silicon mobile products. We will empower you to engage with multiple design teams to identify and implement critical design metrics for different stages of chip designs working with other CAD disciplines to establish and support regression infrastructure to execute flows and collect data. You will develop new methods to automatically generate, analyze and visualize complex engineering data, apply Big Data and predictive analytics principles to semiconductor design. This system will enable us to assess and drive PPA and quality of our chips. The system will increase efficiency and Quality-of-Results for our methodologies and design processes.
- Do you have 5+ years of industry experience in chip design/CAD process? Experience working with or supporting physical design CAD flows including place and route, static timing analysis (STA), physical design verification, IR and static and dynamic power analysis?
- Your efficient programming capabilities in either Perl, Python, TCL or Makefile is invaluable to our team.
- Your depth of expertise and understanding of relational databases (e.g. MySQL) and NoSQL solutions will serve you well to success.
You will thrive in this role if you love working with a variety of internal teams.
