Digital Physical Design Engineer
Join a newly-opened design centre based in Bristol as a Digital Physical Design Engineer. This is a chance to join an established multinational IC design organisation, and be part of building up the new UK office.
This company has been in successful operation for over a decade, now with 160 employees. To accommodate their growing business and expanding project pipelines, a new UK office was opened early in 2018, now with new opportunities for skilled Digital Physical Designers to join them in Bristol.
The role of the Digital Physical Design Engineer will be to focus on the full RTL to GDSII flow of large complex designs. You will enjoy the variety of working on a range of projects for different market areas, taking responsibility for driving timing closure through physical synthesis and Place & Route tools, and working closely with ASIC vendors. You will drive best-practice physical design and sub-micron methodologies to streamline physical design work. This is a 'start-up' style team with big plans to expand over the coming years.
For this role, it's essential to have solid experience in the Digital Backend / Physical Design flow. You must be well versed in:
· Block level implementation including physical synthesis, P&R, CTS and optimization
· Timing constraints, STA and timing closure
· Physical Design Verification Flows
· Floor planning, P&R and synthesis tools (Synopsys or Cadence considered)
· You'll also be a strong team player, with excellent communication skills
You will receive a competitive salary and a generous bonus, together with pension scheme, healthcare insurance, and the option for some flexible working if required.
Please note candidates must be eligible to work in the UK (visa sponsorship cannot be provided at the moment).
