  • Familiar with using defect tracking systems
  • Excellent Written and Verbal Communication Skills
  • Practical experience with source code control tools (e.g., GIT, Perforce, Subversion, CVS, etc.)
  • Knowledge of IC manufacturing process flows

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Exposure to CAD/CAE environments such as:
  • EDA verification tools like DRC, LVS, Parasitic Extraction, and netlisting tools
