Analog Design Manager

We’re looking for a Analog Design Manager to join the team. Does this sound like a good role for you?

In this role, you will guide a team performing timing characterization of SERDES IP. You will be part of a fast-growing analog and mixed signal R&D team developing high speed analog integrated circuits in the latest FinFET CMOS processes. We are looking for a manager with theoretical knowledge and practical experience to contribute to the team. You will work with a cross functional design team of analog, digital and top level integration designers from a wide variety of backgrounds. Our design environment is best-in-class with a full suite of IC design tools, supplemented by custom in-house tools, and supported by an experienced software/CAD team.


-Direct and guide the activities of a team of engineers characterizing timing, analysis timing results, and generating timing models of high-speed SERDES IP.
-Develop and align timing flow and methodology to ensure efficiency and quality of the team’s deliverables.
-Conduct design reviews and evaluate final results of timing views and reports.
-Present results of timing, assessments or critical issue investigation and make recommendation for actions necessary to achieve desired results.
-Ensure the team follows processes for maximum design quality.
-Consult on the timing charactersitcs of the SerDes Ip product.
-Propose solutions for STA timing closure.

Required Qualifications:

-MSc with 5 years experience of IC design.
-Familiarity with transistor level circuit design and CMOS design fundamentals.
-In depth knowledge of setup and hold timing analysis.
-Detailed experience timing characterization, modelling, simulation and verification.
-Familiarity with custom digital design (i.e. high speed logic paths).
-Experience with tools for timing experience, for example, Primetime, Nanotime, or equivalent.
-Hands-on experience with physical layout of high speed circuits is a plus.
-Knowledge of SPICE simulators and simulation methods.
-Experience with TCL, Perl, C, Python, MATLAB, or other scripting languages is desired.
-Good communication and documentation skills.
