Rivos Power Design team is seeking highly motivated candidates to perform post-silicon power activities for the new high performance power efficient SOC designs.The primary role is to engage in power hardware validation and analysis of typical workloads on server compute silicon.


    • As a Post-Silicon Power Engineer, you will own or participate in the following:
    • Analyze workloads and their power dissipation to drive the power optimization to achieve best-in-class power/performance ratio
    • Measure silicon power dissipation of typical server workloads (data analytics, graph algorithms, and AI/ML), analyze data, and correlate measurements with simulation results
    • Collaborate cross-functionally with design, architecture, systems, and software teams to enable enterprise customer use-case power measurements
    • Perform silicon power measurements and correlate with partition simulations and full-chip projections
    • Improve use-case power/perf ratio through tuning of hardware and software settings
    • Silicon register tuning to achieve power and thermal stability
    • Automate power measurement infrastructure
    • System level power & performance debug.


    • Applicants with strong programming skills and understanding of low-power digital design and power fundamentals, including:
    • Skilled  in Assembly, C, Python, and shell programming plus associated tool chains
    • Use of lab equipment such as multi-meter units, oscilloscopes, etc
    • CMOS dynamic and static power calculation
    • Excellent skills in problem solving, written and verbal communication, excellent organization skills, and highly self-motivated.
    • Ability to work well in a team and be productive under aggressive schedules.
