About the team:
The growing Encore Semi SoC implementation team collaborates with our customers on design of advanced systems for wireless communication, networking, storage, and automotive using innovative new core architectures. Joining our team, you will build on a background of working with state-of-the-art semiconductor design.   
About the project:
As part of the SoC implementation team you will work on design for test development. The job requires experience in scan insertion, ATPG, simulation (non-timing and timing), JTAG, silicon bring-up, Synopsys and Mentor (Tessent) toolsets, hierarchical DFT, TCL, PERL, Synopsys VCS and Mentor Questa, vector planning and release. Must be very disciplined engineer able to handle multiple DFT assignments at the same time given that new development and bring-up of previous design always overlap. 

Minimum Qualifications 
- Minimum of 5 five years of experience in implementing DFT/ATPG for complex SoC devices
- Experienced in scan insertion and simulation (VCS and Questa) 
- Good knowledge working with Synopsys and Mentor Graphics DFT tools 
- Strong scripting experience using TCL/PERL 

Preferred Qualifications
- 10 years experience in relevant field, proven experience with very large designs
- Proven experience working with DFT insertion and simulation for large cores 
- Independent ownership of DFT insertion and simulation for chip top or a large design 
- Mentor LVMBIST experience
Education Requirements
- BS Electrical Engineering
- Master's in EE with a focus on DFT is preferred
