These products deliver accurate parasitic data for comprehensive post-layout analysis and simulation of integrated circuit designs

You will be part of a team responsible for testing, debugging and qualifying software releases and updates. You will own the design, development, and execution of application specific functional and regression tests used to measure the quality, robustness, performance, supportability, and usefulness of extraction products in our customer’s semiconductor flows. You will collaborate with senior software engineers, quality assurance specialists, marketing, and customers to help deliver timely product releases that meet our customer’s needs. Through leadership and innovation, break away from conventional thinking and develop procedures and tools needed to improve the QA process and assist developers in design trade-offs and risk analysis assessments. You will have to think both like an electrical engineer and a software engineer.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Exposure to CAD/CAE environments such as:

  • EDA verification tools like DRC, LVS, Parasitic Extraction, and netlisting tools (sanity checkers, SPICE simulation)

  • EDA full custom layout tools/place and route tools

  • Knowledge in scripting languages (PERL, PYTHON, Tcl)

  • Self-motivation, self-discipline and the ability to set personal goals and work consistently towards them will go far towards contributing to your success.
