Are you a digital design and verification engineer with experience developing low power mixed-signal chips? Do you want to play a key role in building next generation Wi-Fi chips that will truly enable the Internet of Things? Keen to make a real difference in a VC-backed startup and work in a dynamic & fun environment? Then join Australia’s fastest growing semiconductor startup based in Sydney, Australia!

You’ll work with the team that invented Wi-Fi 20 years ago, and help shape the future of Wi-Fi.

Your role will be within the digital team and involve design and verification of our chips. Our ideal candidate will be very experienced in both design and verification of mixed signal chips. Applicants will need to be experienced with designing and verifying complex, mixed-signal SoCs. You will be responsible for the design, development, and verification of digital subsystems within our chips. Additional tasks will involve managing continuous integration (CI) regression testing flows, evaluating existing test suites and expanding in areas where needed and running and debugging power aware and gate level simulations.

We are open to sponsoring a work visa for the right candidate.

Responsibilities include:

  • Working within the digital team on block design and verification
  • Working with the firmware and digital teams to understand verification goals
  • Working with and expanding and improving existing verification environment to ensure critical features are tested

What we’re looking for (essential):

  • MSc in Electrical / Electronics / Communication Engineering or Computer Science
  • 8+ years relevant industry experience taping out mixed-signal chips for mass-production
  • A deep understanding of digital design fundamentals for low power and multi-clock-domain design
  • A solid understanding of mixed signal ASIC design and simulation, experience with AMS simulation
  • Very experienced with the Cadence or Synopsys simulation suites
  • Experience with SystemVerilog designs and testbench infrastructure
  • Experience running and debugging full-chip gatelevel simulations of post-PnR netlists with SDF annotation
  • Experience writing embedded C and structuring code in a way which makes reusability and maintenance a breeze
  • Experience using the git revision control tool
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Ability to document - and keep updated - instructions on running and debugging flows
  • Strong analytical and problem-solving skills
  • A determination to deliver even when subject to time pressures
  • A hands-on, practical attitude

Desired skills and experience (not essential):

  • Experience with coverage collection tools
  • Experience defining functional verification requirements, implementing tests to meet them
  • Experience setting up and maintaining continuous integration (CI) flows for regression testing and reporting status
  • Experience running PG/LVS gatelevel simulations to verify power intent before tapeout
  • Experience with cocotb
  • A good understanding of embedded processor systems, familiarity with RISC-V
  • Hands-on experience with Linux development environment staples such as make, shell scripts and Python
