DFT Architect

We are automating the design process to democratize access to silicon. As a DFT Architect in the Implementation group, you will shape the company-wide methodology to significantly scale the number of designs a single team can manage. We need out-of-the-box thinking to automate the DFT, this is an opportunity for a DFT expert to define unique methodologies.

The Challenge

  • Help design a robust design for test methodology 
  • Deploy new DFT methodologies to company sites across the world
  • Enable other engineers to execute all aspects of DFT insertion and simulation.
  • Collaborate with other technical leads to revolutionize the chip design industry: Instead of the question being, “how many engineers it takes to do a chip?”, we want to reframe it to ask, “how many chips an engineer can make?"
  • Join us as we create a fully automated online chip design methodology.

What you bring

  • A minimum of 8 years of experience with DFT
  • Experience managing all aspects of design for test for an SOC: scan, MBIST, and 3rd party IP integration
  • Experience integrating DFT of complex mixed signal IPs
  • Expertise in DFT IP reuse: IEEE 1500, core wrapping, and IEEE 1687
  • Strong understanding of timing constraints
  • Thorough knowledge of the RTL to GDS implementation flow

Education / Certifications

  • Master’s degree required with emphasis in Electrical Engineering, Computer architecture, or Computer Science
