Senior Test Circuit Design Engineer


April 30, 2021

The Advanced Technology Group (ATG) at NVIDIA is an organization of process, CAD, and design engineers that works closely with key foundry partners and internal design groups. The team defines and prototypes advanced process, design, and yield methodologies and ensures product groups are well-positioned for the next generation. We are looking to hire a skilled and creative circuit design engineer to help achieve these goals in a high-visibility position.
What you'll be doing:

  • Test Structure Design : Transistor-level circuit design, layout implementation, physical and logical verification, and debug of test structures for early test vehicles on advanced processes, focusing on design for testing and yield analysis.

  • Silicon Data Analysis : Extensive model-vs-silicon data analysis, exploring device and wire models, as well as higher-level SRAM bitcell issues like Vmin, Vmax, and Iread.

  • Collaborate with Foundries : Work closely with NVIDIA engineers and externally with foundry partners on testing, data analysis, and debug.

What we need to see:

  • BSEE minimum or equivalent (or equivalent experience), MSEE or PhD preferred

  • 7+ years of circuit design and/or fabrication process experience, with strong background in layout, CAD tools, and DRC rules

  • Experience with advanced FinFET processes and modeling

  • Scripting ability to parse and automate data analysis, such as R

Ways to stand out from the crowd:

  • Self-motivation, attention to detail, and good written, verbal, and presentation skills are critical to success in this role

  • Foundry interface and program management skills

  • Lab testing/debug experience

  • Prior design experience involving SRAM and/or other on-die memory structures

NVIDIA has continuously reinvented itself over two decades. Our invention of the GPU in 1999 sparked the growth of the PC gaming market, redefined modern computer graphics, and revolutionized parallel computing. More recently, GPU deep learning ignited modern AI — the next era of computing. NVIDIA is a “learning machine” that constantly evolves by adapting to new opportunities that are hard to solve, that only we can tackle, and that matter to the world. This is our life’s work, to amplify human imagination and intelligence. Make the choice, join our diverse team today!
