Our client seeks a Physical Design Team Lead to be the cornerstone of a new Physical Design team in Southern Ireland.

This is a rare and exciting opportunity for a Physical Design Team Lead to join a hugely successful global business and build a brand new Digital Physical Design team from scratch. This company is a world leader in wireless semiconductors and solutions that are used in huge volumes within handsets, tablets and consumer devices. With ongoing growth they are now looking to assemble a new backend design group, and are ideally looking to appoint the Physical Design Lead as the first hire.

The role:

The Physical Design Lead will be responsible for leading and implementing complete Back-End flow from netlist to Tapeout including, floorplanning, placement, CTS (Clock Tree Synthesis), timing optimization, routing, physical verification, formal verification and timing closure on state-of-the-art CMOS technologies (28nm, 20nm and 14nm) and designs. This is a highly technical role, which will involve leading, mentoring (and recruiting) Physical Design Engineers for the group.


The successful Physical Design Lead will be a high calibre, degree-qualified individual with proven experience and exposure in the following areas:

*10+ years hands on experience in physical design, with team leadership experience
*An in-depth understanding of the RTL-GDSII flow
*Experience with large SoC designs with frequencies >1GHz
*Familiar with typical SoC design issues such as multi-voltage and clock domains, Si based timing closure challenges
*Excellent communication and interpersonal skills; this role will involve working closely with teams in the US and India

This team is scheduled for long-term future growth; hence the Physical Lead will be the key figurehead for Physical Design at this site.
