Design Automation Engineer

Job Description

About the team:

Join a diverse and dynamic software team in providing tools, API's, and methodologies to help hardware design teams co-optimize their designs for leading edge process nodes. On this team you will develop automation for EDA tools to quickly measure the performance, power, and area for feedback into technology development, ranging from SPICE simulations of foundational analog and memory IPs to block level Place and Route flows. You will also develop web services to capture this data and dynamic web UIs for engineers to analyze the results. And, you will be working closely with hardware engineers in debugging and analyzing their EDA flows. It is an exciting time and with your skill and expertise we can help create the next generation technology which will shape our future.

About the role:

Some key responsibilities include:

  • Automating EDA flows with a combination of tool-native language e.g. TCL, Python, and JavaScript
  • Making EDA flows easily permutable to interface with Machine Learning tools
  • Efficiently executing highly permutable design flows, making optimal use of storage and compute resources
  • Automate managing and packaging hundreds of TBs of technology collaterals
  • Developing web services to create, monitor, and manage EDA flow experiments and their associated results


You must possess the below requirements to be initially considered for this position. Preferred qualifications are in addition to the requirements and are considered a plus factor in identifying top candidates. Experience listed below would be obtained through a combination of your schoolwork and/or classes and/or research and/or relevant previous job and/or internship experiences.

Minimum Qualifications

The candidate must possess a Master's Degree in Electrical, Computer Engineering, Computer Science, or related Engineering disciplines with 2+ years of Semiconductor Experience listed below.

  • Developing applications in Cadence or Synopsys design tools (e.g. using tool APIs in TCL or SKILL)
  • Data structures, algorithms, and object-oriented design patterns
  • Proficient in Python3
  • Database concepts in SQL or NoSQL platforms such as PostgreSQL and MongoDB

Preferred Qualifications

  • Experience using Place and Route design tools such as Cadence Genus or Innovus or Synopsys Design Compiler or IC Compiler
  • Experience in automating SPICE simulations and testbench creation
  • Experience in developing service-oriented, microservice, multi-tiered and distributed architectures
  • Experience with relational databases (e.g. PostgreSQL, MySQL) and SQL
  • Experience in web service or UI development with Javascript, HTML, Typescript, or React.js
