  • Contribute to future silicon development with learnings and optimizations from silicon based debug activities
  • Regularly audit silicon inventory and ensure security requirements are complied with


Here’s what you need:

  • Able to work in a lab setting taking all requisite precautions
  • Experience with silicon bring-up and debug of chips of at least the complexity of ARM CPUs
  • Experience with lab equipment for high speed silicon chips
  • Hands on experience using a JTAG debugger to enable deeper testing of silicon - e.g. T32 Lauterbach
  • Lab skills like soldering, working knowledge of lab equipment, calibration of lab equipment, license requirements and inventory management
  • API based programming to automate measurements and manage test suites is preferred.


  • Competitive benefits, including a fair and balanced parental leave policy.
  • Fantastic opportunities to develop your career across industries with local and global clients.
