Engineering – Silicon Engineering /
Full-time
Join the most cutting-edge and well-funded hardware startup in Silicon Valley. 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.The hardware technology team is looking for a motivated silicon process/device engineer to fill a full-time position.

Responsibilities

    • Lead technical collaboration with foundry partners - including but not limited to - process selection, device benchmarking, foundry collateral schedule negotiation and delivery, process qualification, ramp readiness, etc.
    • Work closely with foundries on silicon process, device and yield issues. 
    • Participate in technology development, device engineering, and ongoing sustaining engineering activities within the technology group. 
    • Work with foundry partners and internal design teams on device level electrical data analysis including SPICE simulations for PPA benchmarking. 
    • Drive thorough investigation of root cause, and solutions to process/yield issues and its impact on product production, performance, reliability and schedule. 
    • Manage and mitigate technology risks for multiple projects in parallel. 
    • Engage parties in decision-making and work towards timely closure and thorough follow- through.
    • Build essential internal and external relationships across all levels (engineering to senior management) at suppliers.

Requirements

    • Experience in semiconductor process R&D and manufacturing.
    • Experience with process qualification and yield enhancement.
    • Deep knowledge of CMOS device physics and process at bleeding edge technology nodes and industry competitive landscape.
    • Experience collaborating with design (analog & digital) in these technologies.
    • Demonstrated prior experience and success solving highly complex technical problems under a very aggressive schedule is critical.
    • Good data analysis, problem solving, and very strong communication skills required.
    • Experience with new product qualification at foundry partners including volume ram and yield improvement
    • Experience with running SPICE model simulations for PPA benchmarking 
    • Self-motivated and schedule oriented is expected.
    • Ability to work well in a team and be productive under aggressive schedules.

Education and Experience

    • PhD, Master’s Degree or Bachelor’s Degree in technical subject area.
