Job Description

Component Design Engineers are responsible for the design and development of electronic components.

This position is part of the 3D Xpoint Logic and Validation team. You will be responsible for performing RTL design and validation of Intel's new Optane memory to ensure it meets product specifications and functionality. You will be required to work very closely with analog and RTL designers as well as architects to implement the low-level RTL design and ensure the overall functionality of the chip. You will develop specific tests and test plans to validate the device by identifying and exercising boundary conditions and special cases in an effort to "break" the chip to find that last elusive bug

Responsibilities may be quite diverse in a technical nature and will vary significantly depending on the unique needs of the role, U.S. experience and education requirements.

The responsibilities will include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Involve in RTL logic design in System Verilog.
  • Develop and support the full chip test environment and Unit Level Tests.
  • Debug RTL simulations.
  • Validating the functionality of new architectural features of next generation designs by developing the validation test plan, test content or test tools
  • Developing automated tools or scripts for the pre-silicon validation environment.
  • Contribute to the definition of higher level device specifications.

This is an entry level position and will be compensated accordingly.


You must possess the minimum qualifications to be initially considered for this position. Relevant experience can be obtained through school work, classes and project work, internships, military training, and/or work experience.
