About the position

As a Layout Engineer you are responsible for converting an electrical design to a mask layout used for chip fabrication. You are responsible for the physical representation of the chip, from the lowest block level to the complete floor plan.

You will become part of a highly experienced team, tasked with designing a high-speed Analog Front-End (AFE) in a very advanced FinFET CMOS node (16nm, 10nm or 7nm). Being part of this team will require participating in discussions on all levels, ranging from system-level down to transistor-level.

In this position, you will be responsible for engineering the layout. You will be an integral part of the design process assisting Analog Designers on layout constraints and trade-offs such as matching, parasitic effects, process design rules, reliability, aging, electromigration and hot-carrier injection. You will be going through iterations with Analog Designers for a successful design. Together with the other Layout Engineers you will be responsible of estimating and planning the time of the layout from block level to top level in order to utilize the resources efficiently. You will communicate with the CAD team on layout flow related issues.

While technical strength is very important, being able to perform within a team, having an eye for the problems and always focusing on the overall success, is even more important.
