Rivos is on a mission to build the best enterprise SOCs in the world with class leading performance, power, security and RAS features. We are seeking Memory Controller and Logic Design experts to join our team in building the best high performance memory interface in the world.


    • Microarchitecture development and specification - from early high-level architectural exploration through micro architectural research and arriving at a detailed specification
    • Development, assessment, and refinement of RTL design to target power, performance, area, and timing goals
    • Validation - support test bench development and simulation for functional and performance verification
    • Performance exploration and correlation - explore high performance strategies and validate that the RTL design meets targeted performance
    • Design delivery - work with multi-functional engineering team to implement and validate physical design on the aspects of timing, area, reliability, testability and power


    • Thorough knowledge of memory controller or PHY design and experience in one or more of the following memory technologies: DDR, LPDDR, HBM
    • Knowledge of SystemVerilog
    • Experience with simulators and waveform debugging tools
    • Knowledge of logic design principles along with timing and power implications
    • Understanding of low power microarchitecture techniques
    • Understanding of high performance techniques and trade-offs in memory controller microarchitecture
    • Experience using an interpretive language such as Perl or Python
