Intel SOC Verification Engineer in Des Moines, Iowa

Job Description

We are a global leader, creating world-changing technology that enables progress and enriches lives. Intel is at the intersection of several technology inflections - artificial intelligence, 5G network transformation, and the rise of the intelligent edge- that together will shape the future of technology. This is a structured ASIC (Application Specific Integrated Circuit) team under Intel's Programmable Solutions Group (PSG) targeting 5G, cloud computing, and high-end consumer application space. Intel eASIC devices are structured ASICs, an intermediary technology between FPGAs and standard-cell ASICs bridging the gap between FPGA and Custom ASIC.

As a SOC Design Engineer Lead, ( senior technical staff) you will use your knowledge of Logic Verification and ASIC/FPGA technology to lead pre-silicon verification efforts (including IP, integration, and full-chip aspects), both internal and external, to use the Structured ASIC technology. The position requires a self-driven candidate with deep knowledge in design, verification, and communication interfaces, coupled with good communication skills.

Areas of responsibility for this role include, but not limited to the following:

  • Be the lead on the overall architecture design, implementation of complex features, flows, protocols, and their interactions with rest of the SoC and with the platform.

  • Manage the verification of IP integration and/or SoC level flows.

  • Lead the development of theverification strategy, requirements, environments, tools, and methodologies.

  • Apply your knowledge of design methodologies verification principles and techniques and your judgement to drive the team to write architecture specifications, functional and microarchitecture specifications and realize the corresponding RTL designs. Lead the development of test plans, and implement them by developing tests, test generators, test benches, checkers, coverage, and other verification collateral.

  • Actively involved in running tests, debugging failures to root cause, and recommending solutions.

  • Collaborate with cross-functional teams to drive continuous improvement to design, verification plans/collateral, and methodology to prevent, reduce, or find bugs.
