Job Description

Our team is responsible for Silicon level HW architectural validation and accountable to find design implementation bugs through post si system level validation

As a Post Silicon Validation Engineer ( Server and Client Microprocessor Hardware), you are required to create, define and develop system validation environment & test suites optimized for a CPU or its subsystems like memory controller, Power management, PCIe, USB / TCSS, Serial IO, Graphics, media, audio and other modules of given complexity.

Uses & applies emulation & platform-level tools & techniques to ensure functionality & performance as per spec.

You are responsible for the development of methodologies, execution of validation plans / coverage, and debug of failures.

Requires broad understanding of multiple system areas and requires interfaces with Architecture, Design, and Pre-silicon Validation teams in improving post-

silicon test content and providing feedback for future on-die debug features.

You are responsible in validating the functionality of new architectural features of next generation designs by developing test plans, tests content, coverage points or test tools.

You are focal point between a number of Architecture, Design, System software developers and Validation teams within Intel and across different sites.


Bachelor's / Master's in Hardware Engineering or Electrical / Electronics Engineering or Computer Engineering or Computer Science with minimum 7 years to 15 years (Domain Lead position) of related work experience.
