Job Description

Principal Verification Engineer

Take active responsibility in the functional verification of all stages of a product development, from RTL design verification at block level to full chip verification at system level. Actively contribute to the implementation of an integrated platform suitable for both horizontal reuse (across all the different levels of design abstraction), and vertical reuse (across multiple evolution of the product). Insure the cascaded deployment of the integrated platform, and best design practice methodology for efficient verification. Provide leadership role to junior verification engineers and contractors to insure the proper execution of the action plan at the team level.


Required Experience:

Product Verification

  • Participate to the planning of the product verification, including partitioning of the verification, choice of the most suitable verification strategy, resource and schedule allocation needed to accomplish the task
  • Participate in the review and approval process of product design documents relevant for efficient verification (product high-level requirements, micro-architecture specification, design specifications, verification plans)
  • Insure the correct development of the various verification platforms, as per defined by the verification methodology
  • Centralize the management of regressions, including build management, execution, reporting, coverage collection, and bug tracking
  • Report the consolidated progresses of the overall verification activities and status to management
  • Participate to the development and execution of the product verification, implementing testbenches, tests scenario, coverage and checking, regressions and failure analysis, as per defined in the verification plan
  • Methodology

  • Participate to cross functional committee of local design, verification, architecture, software, and IT/CAD engineers, in order to define the high-level requirements of an integrated product design platform, intended to maximize synergy between activities, improve design efficiency and quality of work
  • Convert detailed implementation specifications into actual, production level solutions
  • LExecute the implementation of the integrated platform developments as per established defined milestones and roadmap
  • Participate to the definition of standard operation procedures for the product design activity (i.e. approval process, review process, release process)
  • Participate to the definition and implementation of the reuse strategy for the verification activities
  • Implement the unified design platform to facilitate integration and reuse of the verification code across various levels of abstraction and design partitions (vertical reuse)
  • Implement the unified design platform to facilitate reuse of the verification across code variations or derivative of a given product (horizontal reuse)
  • Contribute in the automation of build management, regression run, centralized reporting and tracking of regressions
  • Insure the correct deployment and use of advanced software engineering techniques for automation of the code development activities (Software Configuration Management, build management, IDE, code reviews, bug tracking)
  • Dispense training and cascade information for the internal deployment of the adopted methodologies
  • Evaluate EDA Solutions for verification and Verification IP vendor selection
  • Other Experience:

    Leadership and Planning

  • Lead team of junior verification engineers and contractors (day-to-day coaching, definition of the short term objectives)
  • Provide accurate estimates on tasks assignments, workload, project planning and progress tracking activities
  • Demonstrate accountability in reaching predefined objectives at the personal and team level
  • This is not a management role, we seek individual contributors with great leadership skills
