Sr. Software Engineer

Job Description

We are looking for a highly motivated software engineer to work on the Calibre engineering team in the Siemens EDA IC segment. You will be part of a team responsible for designing, developing, and supporting the Calibre Parasitic Extraction software. The Calibre parasitic extraction products identify the electrical side effects of devices and interconnect wires in integrated circuit designs and output those in a format that can be used for comprehensive post-layout analysis and simulation. Development responsibilities span different software components, including computation engines, application software, APIs, and utilities. You will collaborate with a senior group of software engineers on the production-level quality of new components and algorithms and support existing parasitic extraction-related products.

  • Excellent programming (C++) and software engineering skills
  • 2+ years of EDA software development experience, ideally in parasitic extraction
  • Experience with large software development projects (code reviews, version management, unit tests, static/dynamic code checkers)
  • Practical (scientific) software development experience on projects that required numerical linear algebra and data structures/algorithms for high-volume data and computing
  • Strong team player with solid interpersonal and communication skills (written and verbal)
  • Strong ability and interest to learn, explore and apply new technologies in software engineering, computer science, and numerical mathematics.
  • Strong analytical and problem-solving skills
  • Self-motivation, self-discipline, and the ability to set and work consistently toward personal goals
Preferred Job Qualifications:
  • MS or Ph.D. in Computer Science, Scientific Computing, Electrical Engineering, or a related discipline.
  • Experience with multi-threaded, distributed, and high-performance computing
  • IC CAD experience (DRC, LVS, extraction, simulation) and solid knowledge of semiconductor processes.
  • Experience with UNIX and/or LINUX platforms
