    • Large scale statistical and hierarchical timing signoff
    • Power and Rail analysis, both static and dynamic, with thermal and package constraints
    • Design for Test and advanced post silicon debug
    • Tool based timing constraint derivation and verification
    • Coding Verilog for high performance
    • Design flow automation and data visualisation
    • Transitioning to cloud compute resources
    • Emerging 2.5d and 3d silicon fabrication techniques

    Your responsibilities and accountabilities:

    • Delivering to a high standard
    • Planning and appreciating quality and self driven
    • Competence in programming, analytics and problem solving
    • A high level of proactivity and initiative
