We are looking for dynamic leaders who can develop and drive technical solutions with our customers so that we grow our market share and contribute to Silicon Photonics Solution Group's mission to transform and lead datacenter connectivity and enable Intel's differentiation in the networking space. As RF IC Design Engineering Manager, the individual will be involved in Leading the IC Design team in developing key high speed mixed signal designs from architecture to product. Responsibilities will include driving system electrical & optical specifications, defining circuit architectures and enabling designs meeting power, performance and cost for next generation optical interconnects. Directs and guides the activities of research or technical design function responsible for designing, developing, modifying, modeling and analyzing analog and mixed signal electronic parts, components, interconnects, or integrated circuitry for electronic equipment and other hardware systems. Evaluates final results of research and development projects to assure accomplishment of technical objectives. Prepares and presents reports outlining the outcome of technical projects and makes recommendations for actions necessary to achieve desired results. Selects, develops, and evaluates personnel to ensure the efficient operation of the function.Technical Acumen - Demonstrated through successful product and systems development experiences involving complex EO / IC components, sub-systems, and systems such as optics, digital/analog signal processing electronics. Requirements Development - Demonstrated ability to enter the customer's environment, find out how the customer will use the system, and translate that voice of customer into requirements and trade-offs that can be evaluated via alternative designs additional skill in successfully influencing system requirements at the end customer desired Creative Solutions - Direct contribution to technical solutions that integrate multiple disciplines or technologies into non-obvious system architectures that provide meaningfully unique and differentiated capability requires understanding of current and proposed competitive solutions, key performance indicators, and end-user mission objectives as well as understanding of interplay between technologies and engineering design
