Our client, a semiconductor company headquartered in the heart of California’s Silicon Valley, is a leader in purpose-built connectivity solutions for data-centric systems throughout the data center. Partnering with leading processor vendors, cloud service providers, seasoned investors, and world-class manufacturing companies, they are helping customers remove performance bottlenecks in data-intensive systems that are limiting the true potential of applications such as artificial intelligence and machine learning. The company’s product portfolio includes system-aware semiconductor integrated circuits, boards, and services to enable robust CXL, PCIe, and Ethernet connectivity.

Job Description

We are looking for Senior Design Verification Engineers with proven experience in all aspects of verification in UVM and C/C++. The candidate must have experience using high level programming languages such as C/C++ to communicate with System Verilog and/or UVM based environments to aid RTL simulation, CoSimulation and Emulation.

Basic qualifications:
  • Strong academic and technical background in electrical engineering. At minimum, a Bachelor’s in EE is required, and a Master’s is preferred.
  • ≥5 years’ experience supporting or developing complex SoC/silicon products for Server, Storage, and/or Networking applications.
  • Professional attitude with the ability to prioritize a dynamic list of multiple tasks, to plan and prepare for customer meetings in advance, and to work with minimal guidance and supervision.
  • Entrepreneurial, open-mind behavior and can-do attitude. Think and act fast with the customer in mind!
Required Experience
  • Experience with integrating C/C++ in System Verilog environments using DPI/PLI
  • Ability to use scripting tools (Perl/Python) to automate verification infrastructure.
  • Experience in developing infrastructure and tests in a hybrid directed and constrained random environments
  • Must be able to work independently to develop test-plans, and related test-sequences in UVM to generate stimuli and work collaboratively with RTL designers to debug failures.
  • Develop user-controlled random constraints in transaction-based verification methodology. Experience writing assertions, cover properties and analyzing coverage data
  • Must have prior experience using Verification IPs from 3rd party vendors for communication protocols such as PCI-Express (Gen-3 and above), Ethernet, Infiniband, DDR, NVMe, USB, etc.
  • Develop VIP abstraction layers to simplify and scale verification deployments
Preferred Experience
  • S/W debugging for SoC based designs in the area of kernel/device-drivers/u-boot
  • Physical Layer, Link Layer and Transaction Layer verification expertise in PCIe protocol.
  • Experience in memory technologies like DDR4/DDR5/HBM.
  • Experience with FPGA-based verification/emulation.

We know that creativity and innovation happen more often when teams include diverse ideas, backgrounds, and experiences, and we actively encourage everyone with relevant experience to apply, including people of color, LGBTQ+ and non-binary people, veterans, parents, and individuals with disabilities.
