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.


  • Candidate must have at least a bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, or a related degree
  • 5+ years of industry experience in logic design with a proven track record of delivering complex CPU or SoC IP’s
  • 3+ years working on complex CPU architectures and general computer architectures
  • Familiarity with design flows and methodologies: lint, CDC, RDC, LP static, UPF, FEV, synthesis, timing and power analysis
  • Strong understanding of sub-system design and challenges faced at the sub-system level

Preferred Qualifications:

  • MS degree in Computer or Electrical Engineering and 10+ years of practical experience
  • Substantial background in debugging designs as well as simulation environments
  • Experience with digital timing analysis, multiple clocks, power, synthesis, place-n-route
  • Expertise in front-end design flows and methodologies and experience closing at sub-system level: RTL partitioning, third party IP integration, lint, DFT insertion,UPF annotation, synthesis and timing closure, System / Control Register integration, and 1st order verification debug
  • Scripting language, Python preferred
