DV - SOC - DFX Verification

Bengaluru, India — Full-time

Join the most cutting-edge and well-funded hardware startup in Silicon Valley as an SOC Design Verification Engineer. Our mission is to reimagine silicon and create computing platforms that will transform the industry. You will have the opportunity to work with some of the most talented and passionate engineers in the world to create designs that push the envelope on performance, energy efficiency and scalability. We offer a fun, creative and flexible work environment, with a shared vision to build products to change the world.

As a SOC DV Engineer with a focus on DFD and DFT feature verification, you will work to understand the internal requirements and complexities of our SOC system and architect the required verification strategy.  You will help set up methodologies, come up with test plans, and verify that the design meets the highest quality standards. We believe in early involvement of DV, so you will also participate in architecture/product definition through early involvement in the product life-cycle.
