Senior SOC & DFT Verification Engineer

Location: Austin, TX, United States
Date Posted: 12-10-2018
Position Title: Senior or Senior/Staff SOC & DFT Verification Engineer
Location: Austin, TX
Status: Full-time
About the Team:
Join the growing Encore Semi Front-End Development team to collaborate with customers to design, and verify SOCs targeting new and innovative applications such as autonomous vehicles, safety & security and VR/AR.  Building on your background of Functional Verification, you would join a team verifying advanced features at the block and full-chip.
About the Project:
As a senior member of an SOC development team, you would be responsible for driving the Design Verification of either blocks (units) or full-chip elements of innovative SOC designs.  You will leverage your SV/UVM experience to develop Verification plans, create environments and tests to stress the design and actively drive debugging of issues exposed with the hardware and firmware development teams.  An area of special focus will likely toward the correctness and effectiveness of Design-for-Test (DFT) and Design-for-Debug (DFD) features.  If you have SOC Integration Verification experience implementing SV/UVM environments and stimulus, directing random stimulus and deploying a coverage-based approach, joining the Encore Semi Verification team could be for you.
Minimum Qualifications:
• Functional (Design) Verification at the block or SOC / “Full-Chip” level using simulation models.  Experience should include creating Verification Plans from the Microarchitecture Specifications and ability to understand the RTL
• SV/UVM methodology expertise to create Verification environments and drive Functional Verification including test / stimulus creation and debugging failures to root cause
• Computer architecture background to enable flexibility to validate multiple different areas of the design
• 7+ years of Design Verification experience including working with RTL Developers and Post-Silicon Validation
Preferred Qualifications:
• Experience with verifying the functional correctness of DFT (Design-for-Test) and/or DFD (Design-for-Debug) features
• Experience with neural networks, audio processing or image processing
• Experience working with Firmware Development Engineers
• Experience developing Verification methodologies or environments incorporating various levels of coverage but, most importantly, functional coverage (as opposed to code or statement coverage)
Education Requirements:
• Required: Bachelor's, Electrical Engineering
• Preferred: Master's, Electrical Engineering
