Senior CPU Verification Engineer

A skilled Senior Processor (CPU) Verification Engineer with excellent advanced verification skills (SystemVerilog / UVM, Formal Methods) is sought for a brand new team within a world-leading CPU company, now embarking on an exciting new development phase that will allow their engineers to work on a number of completely new CPU projects.

In this rewarding role you will get the chance to work on the development of advanced CPU cores as well as getting an insight into the SoCs and systems they are integrated into.

The successful candidate will have an exciting role working within the hardware design team, employing cutting edge verification flows to help achieve the goal of right first time IP. You have the opportunity to be involved in the complete design cycle; specification, architecture, RTL design, synthesis trials, verification, customer support, with an emphasis on the advanced verification portion of this cycle. You will be working on brand new RTL, making this an extremely rare opportunity for a talented engineer to advance their career.

The ideal candidate will

* Have at least 5 years' experience in ASIC Verification and be degree qualified in Electronics/Physics/Computer Science/Engineering/Maths or similar
* Have strong digital hardware design and verification skills using VHDL, Specman e, systemVerilog, C/C++ or Verilog, as well as in depth knowledge and/or experience of OVM/UVM.
* Be proficient in many of the following;

-Assertion Based Verification (SVA) with experience of formal proofs for assertions
-Formal Verification
-Scripting in TCL, Python or Perl
-Programming in assembler or in C/ C++
-Working in Linux environment
-Formal equivalence checking
-FPGA prototyping
-System modelling in SystemC
-Logic synthesis and static timing analysis

Knowledge of MIPS or RISC architecture is beneficial, as is experience with high frequency and low power design techniques

Great communication skills and an enthusiastic approach are essential for this role, as you will be working within a small specialised team, communicating regularly with other departments.

This is set to be one of the hottest places in the global electronics industry for engineers to explore their full potential and really make their mark, within a challenging and inventive new team. The position offers the opportunity to become a key member of the verification team with a progressively increasing level of responsibility, making this a rare and desirable opportunity for a skilled and determined engineer.

Please note candidates must be eligible to work in the UK.
