The silicon computing development team is seeking passionate, driven, and intellectually curious computer/electrical engineers to deliver premium-quality designs once considered impossible. Our team is involved in numerous projects within Microsoft developing custom silicon for a diverse set of systems ranging from traditional computing solutions to artificial intelligence and augmented reality. We are responsible for delivering cutting-edge, custom CPU and SoC designs that can perform complex and high-performance functions in an extremely efficient manner.


  • BS or MS in ElectricalEngineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science or related degree
  • 5+ years of experience working on pre- or post-silicon functional verification and validation of computing elements such as CPUs, GPUs, caches or similarly complex verification environments usingSystemVerilogorC++
  • Strong background and understanding of computer architecture, specifically out-of-order instruction execution, pipelining, and data caching
  • Proficient communication, collaboration and teamwork skills and ability to contribute to diverse and inclusive teams

Preferred Qualifications:

  • In depth knowledge of verification principles, testbenches, stimulus generation,SystemVerilog, UVM/OVM, and coverage
  • Extensive experience debugging RTL and SV using waveform viewers and HW/SW debuggers within a simulationenvironment
  • Assembly programming experience in industry standard ISAs
  • Scripting proficiency with Python or Perl
  • Architectural knowledge including cache coherency protocols and multi-processor programming

Ability to meet Microsoft, customer and/or government security screening requirements are required for this role. These requirements include, but are not limited to the following specialized security screenings: Microsoft Cloud Background Check: This position will be required to pass the Microsoft Cloud Background Check upon hire/transfer and every two years thereafter.

  • Learn the architecture and microarchitecture, working closely with the design lead, verification lead, and microarchitect
  • Define and document verification test plans
  • Develop vertically reusable unit testbenches in SystemVerilog and UVM
  • Run and debug simulations at multiple levels of abstraction to uncover bugs and meet testplan goals
  • Craft random stimulus (assembly- and sequence-based), leveraging coverage-driven feedback to continually iterate and improve quality
  • Drive verification efficiency by contributing to methodologies and tools
  • Interact with adjacent teams to contribute to common verification strategies, testplans, and horizontally reusable verification collateral
  • Mentor and coach team members and summer interns
