The Skills:

  • Creating testbenches and tests
  • Writing detailed verification plans
  • Adapting UVM principles to an open source-based, highly flexible verification environment
  • Collaborating directly with designers for rapid bringup of new projects and debugging of existing designs
  • Managing regression and continuous integration infrastructure
  • Developing and improving open-source and internal tools

The Profile:

  • Excellent debug and analytical skills to quickly root-cause RTL bugs
  • Strong background (4+ years) in RTL functional verification
  • Experience with code and functional coverage collection/analysis
  • Comfortable in a Linux environment
  • Experience with Python is preferred
  • Familiarity with Verilator and/or Cocotb preferred
  • Experience with networking protocols preferred
  • C++ experience is a plus
