Senior Staff Analog Engineers
Agile Analog are looking for experienced analog design engineers to expand their IP portfolio.
- Are you constantly required to develop the same block again and again?
- Are you ready to develop new IP blocks and architectures?
- Would you like to have an opportunity to expand your design experience?
- Are you motivated by success and seeing your work on silicon?
Agile Analog will offer you the opportunity to grow and develop your skills.
- Be coached by expert analog design engineers.
- Have an opportunity to develop multiple Analog IP cores in all areas especially Data Conversion IP and Power Conversion IP.
- Gain experience on multiple process nodes, including some of the most advanced processes available.
- Collaborate with customers to define and build analog subsystems within advanced SoCs.
Agile Analog is revolutionising the way Analog circuits are designed. We are developing a process agnostic design methodology that uses automation to accelerate the generation of circuits and IP for our customers. Using our innovative technology, we have the capability to design circuits faster, to a higher quality and on any silicon process
Agile Analog’s worldwide HQ is in Cambridge but our team have the ability to work in a hybrid and highly flexible way. We offer the ability to balance your personal commitments with our corporate goals. Our ambition is to become one of the world’s leading semiconductor Analog IP companies.
We are disrupting methodologies that have been unchanged for generations and if you have that similar mindset with the desire to make an impact then play a part in our story
What you will be doing:
Technical leadership of Analog Block/Sub-system developments
- Design, definition and implementation of analog blocks and circuits using a top-down design methodology
- Deploying your knowledge and experience to guide customers and drive design decisions that enable success on silicon
- Investigation and definition for architectural needs and options in analog circuits
- Behavioural modelling for circuits and circuit architectures using Verilog-A
- Development of analog verification test benches to ensure performance and functionality across PVT
- Transistor level analysis and design to achieve customer requirements.
- Understanding and knowledge of the layout of analog circuits, either through direct activities or support to layout engineers
- Support of silicon validation and debugging
- A can do attitude, getting stuff done is key to this role
- An openness and desire to work collaboratively with the wider engineering team is critical
What we need from you:
- Demonstrable, significant experience in the design of analog cores that have been successfully released on silicon.
- A systematic, hands-on approach to circuit design, previous roles of taking designs from concept to mass production is essential
- Using a top-down design approach that uses modelling of functions and verification
- Experience in both defining specifications and designing to specification
- BS/MSEE in a relevant field or equivalent industry experience
- Experience in design of Data Converters, Power Management and Analog Sensor Interfaces
- Experience in full development lifecycle from circuit and system specification, modelling, circuit development, simulation, verification including post layout PEX
- Innovative problem solving with the ability to be able to think flexibly to find solutions. Being open to new approaches and methodologies
- Programming experience: Python, linux, verilogA, verilogAMS, system verilog, C Matlab
- Ability to collaborate within a team and be able to work to customer program milestones and effectively communicate status and challenges.
- Provide coaching and development for junior analog designers.
Even better if you have:
- Macro-level experience: integration, verification and tape-out
- Team-lead experience
- Packaging knowledge (CSP, BGA, etc.)
- CMOS process & design flow (CAD/PDK) knowledge
- Knowledge of Cadence design tools and environment and also Mentor Calibre verification suite
What we offer in return:
- As well as the opportunity to really play a pivotal part in our success, we offer:
- A friendly, supportive and inclusive working environment
- Flexible work hours to fit around your personal commitments
- Hybrid Working
- Professional development and professional society membership
- Company share options
- 25 days’ annual leave with the option to purchase additional days
- Company pension scheme (with a salary sacrifice option)
- Private health insurance (including optical and dental cover)
- Life Assurance
- Cycle-to-work scheme
- Employee Assistance Programme – free wellbeing and health service
If the above role matches your experience, skills and motivations then we would love to hear from you.
