AMD together we advance_




THE ROLE: 

AMD seeks a passionate, collaborative leader with strong technical skills and the initiative to motivate a strong technical team. You will manage a Physical Design CAD/Methodology team to develop and maintain world-class Physical Implementation flows and methodologies.  You will collaborate with our internal experts and EDA vendors to plan and drive continuous methodologies improvements, collecting best practices and integrate them into a software designed flow for consistency, efficiency, and ease-of-use.  You will manage your team to provide tools/flows support to the global IP & SoC design teams and work with EDA vendors to resolve tools issues.

 

THE PERSON: 

We’re looking for a strong leader with excellent communication skills, technically strong in all aspects of Physical Design, including Synthesis, PnR, CTS & Custom clocktree implementation, LEC, functional ECO, Static timing analysis, EMIR and chip finishing to lead our Physical Implementation CAD/Methodology team.  A candidate with experience leading the IP/SoC Physical Design team with multiple successful tape-outs in modern process nodes (7nm, 5nm, 3nm) using state-of-the-art EDA tools from Cadence, Synopsys, Siemens, etc. 

 

KEY RESPONSIBILITIES: 

  • Lead a high-performance Physical Design CAD/Methodology team to develop and maintain world-class Physical Implementation flows from RTL2GDS, including Synthesis, PnR, CTS/Custom clocktree, LEC and ECO.
  • Collaborate with chip design teams to implement the flows and methodologies to improve Performance, Power and Area (PPA), and Turn-Around-Time (TAT).
  • Review and drive technical evaluations of EDA tools and provide recommendation. 
  • Manage the team in providing tools/flows support to the global design teams.
  • Work with EDA vendors to resolve tool issues and bugs.
  • Motivate and nurture talent.

 

KEY QUALIFICATIONS: 

  • 15+ years of industrial experience in VLSI design.
  • Strong technical manager with 5+ years of experience managing Physical Design team at IP/SoC level with multiple successful tapeouts in advance technodes (10nm and below).
  • In-depth knowledge in all aspects of Physical Design, including Synthesis, PnR, CTS & Custom clocktree implementation, LEC, functional ECO, Static timing analysis, EMIR and chip finishing.
  • Experience with driving EDA vendors to make tool improvements or new functions to meet advanced or unique design requirements.
  • Working knowledge in high-performance design flows using industry-standard EDA tools like Cadence, Synopsys, Siemens, etc.
  • Solid background in VLSI and CMOS fundamentals
  • Strong mentoring and coaching skills.

 

PREFERRED ACADEMIC CREDENTIALS: 

  • Bachelors or Masters degree in computer engineering/Electrical Engineering.
