Electronic Design Automation Software Engineer
Have you ever looked at your smartphone and wondered how the silicon chips, that power it, were designed? Electronic Design Automation (EDA) software is some of the most advanced and algorithmically complex in existence.
Our client is building the next generation of EDA tools, these tools enable IC designers to layout the very latest silicon chips. Working with massive complexity and intricate design rules demanded by sub 20nm IC designs.
Creating software that just does the right thing with minimal guidance from the user is extremely technically and intellectually challenging, and we are looking for exceptional engineers to join us with this challenge.
Successful candidates will be deeply involved in the development and implementation of a new EDA technology with a strong focus on computational geometry, geometry manipulation and algorithmic complexity.
We are looking for a software engineer with a top degree (preferably MSc or PhD) and exceptional talent for algorithm development. Although advantageous, EDA experience is not essential.
The position would be ideal for an ambitious graduate looking for a new challenge with a Mathematics or Computer Science or Physics PhD who has a proven and innovative approach to research and software development OR software engineers with relevant industry experience.
