DFT Engineer (Cont)

Austin, TX — Contract

Join the most cutting-edge and well-funded startup in Silicon Valley as a DFT Design 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 DFT, you will work with chip architects, chip designers, implementation engineers and test engineers to define the DFT and DFD (Design for Debug) architecture, implementation, and test plans for both mixed signal and digital VLSI designs.  Then you’ll insure it becomes reality. We’re doing a grounds up implementation of a new chip architecture, so you’ll have to ability to affect a new design.
