The Silicon Computing Development Team in Raleigh 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.

In this role, you will:

  • Establish yourself as an integral member of a pre-silicon verification team owning verification of SOC and integration of its components and/or SoC level flows
  • Become an expert on the overall architecture, implementation of complex features/flows/protocols, and their interactions with other parts of the SoC, with the platform, and with software.
  • Develop verification strategy, testplans, requirements, environments, tools, and methodologies.
  • Define, document, and implement a from-scratch UVM verification environment including agents and scoreboards for a design.
  • Apply your knowledge of verification principles and techniques and your judgement to write test plans and implement them by developing tests, test generators, test benches, checkers, coverage, and other verification collateral.
  • Run tests, debug failures to root cause, and recommend fixes.
  • Apply your growth mindset to learn and adapt in a complex and dynamic environment.
  • Engage with partners to drive continuous improvement to both the design, to verification plans/collateral, and to methodology to prevent, reduce, and/or find bugs sooner, more easily, or more reliably.
  • Mentor and coach team members
  • Apply your One Microsoft mentality to collaborate with and influence architects, logic designers, post-silicon validators, other verification engineers, and IP and tool providers.
