Pre-silicon Design Verification Engineer

The Role:

The Core Verification Team is seeking sharp, motivated design verification engineers who are interested in functional verification of x86 microprocessor cores. You'll work on and learn about some of the industry’s cutting edge microarchitectural designs while you create verification plans for new design features and architectural enhancements. Your contributions will affect products that span the global x86 market from server, to desktop and laptop designs. We have competitive benefit packages and an award-winning culture. Join us!

The Person:

You will work with a team of other verification engineers to verify a state-of-the-art microprocessor core.

  • Developing high level language test benches and test bench components including stimulus drivers, BFMs, behavioral models, monitors and checkers
  • Debugging simulation fails and working with designers to fix design bugs,
  • Analyzing, and closing, functional coverage,
  • Assisting with silicon observations, often requiring replication of behaviors in simulation, to root cause.

Preferred Experience:

  • Hardware verification methodology and techniques such as simulation, debug, coverage, formal, etc.
  • Simulation and debug with a Verilog based functional simulator
  • Object Oriented Programming with C/C++ and SystemVerilog, UVM
