If you are passionate about seeing your ideas go from white board to billions of pieces of silicon, join the ground floor of Intel's next generation core design team in Hillsboro, Oregon and Santa Clara, California.
Our goal: to build a revolutionary microprocessor core to power the next decade of computing and create experiences we have yet to dream up. In this position, you will be a senior member of the next gen CPU pre-silicon verification team and will be responsible for setting the technical direction for and leading a team of junior engineers to exhaustively validate new architecture and micro-architecture changes.
Your responsibilities may include, but are not limited to, the following:
Technical lead for validation of a microarchitecture block, methodology, or otherwise significant aspect of CPU validation.
Inventing and deploying new techniques across simulation, emulation/FPGA and virtual platform to accelerate validation of CPU hardware, firmware, and software domains. Unifying and executing functional, performance, and power feature validation tools and methods including dynamic, formal, and analytical approaches Developing validation content like test generators, test environment and validation tools to match the complexity of the CPU;
Lead technical activities or/and decision making forums that require collaboration between teams across Intel to achieve desired outcomes; Influencing and contributing to micro-architecture definition, post-silicon debug preparation and sighting resolution Mentor junior team members to become the rock-stars of tomorrow as an ideal candidate, you exhibit behavioral traits that indicate you are: Ability to use sound methods and data to test new ideas as well as the desire to have your own ideas be challenged by others. Willingness to work with others in a highly complex decision space rife with ambiguity. Ability to technically lead a team to execute against complex goals with aggressive timelines.Propensity to thrive in a fast-paced, startup-like environment. Strong verbal and written communication and collaboration skills.
