Job Description and Requirements
Expert physical designer with 5+ years of EDA product development / deployment, full-flow benchmarking, design tapeout experience.
Deeply trusted by customer as the on-site R&D that can be counted on to deliver quick solutions (usually TCL / Perl / Python solutions).
This engineer has a good understanding of how the underlying algorithms within the tools work and is able to bridge the algorithms in the tool to the customer’s specific design style.
By being able to work on both sides of the problem, this engineer is able to determine how to update / improve the algorithms to greatly improve power / performance / area / runtimes for the customer’s specific designs.
The engineer is able to connect the dots between what the customer’s design needs are for rapid PPA closure and the underlying capabilities of the engines within the tool.
The engineer then attempts to bridge the gap either by writing glue prototypes to show the engines can be extended to meet the customers needs or working with R&D directly to improve the algorithm and validating the improvement directly on the customer designs.
The engineer will be embedded within the account team and will be actively participating and influencing the technical strategy and execution in the account for the product areas of focus.
The engineer will also be working closely with the DTM (District technical Manager) on managing the priority of the different product issues within the account and ensuring that the product core team and R&D VP is aware of the relative product priorities in the account.
The engineer will be the point person for all escalations from the account for the product areas of focus.
The engineer is expected to be proactive, have a strategic mindset in addition to tactical problem solving. The ability to see the forest from the trees and create excellent testcases for R&D is desired.
The engineer problem-solves on-site with ACs for blocks with thorny issues
