This position is an IP Verification Engineering role on the Atom MBOX Subsystem team, within Intel’s All Cores Engineering (ACE) Group.

Our team delivers Intel’s industry leading IP solutions to our Client and Xeon Server products lines.

Who You Are

Performs functional logic verification of an integrated SoC to ensure design will meet specifications. Defines and develops scalable and reusable block, subsystem, and SoC verification plans, test benches, and the verification environment to meet the required level of coverage and confirm to microarchitecture specifications. Executes verification plans and defines and runs emulation and system simulation models to verify the design, analyze power and performance, and uncover bugs. Replicates, root causes, and debugs issues in the pre-silicon environment. Finds and implements corrective measures to resolve failing tests. Collaborates and communicates with SoC architects, microarchitect's, full chip architects, RTL developers, post-silicon, and physical design teams to improve verification of complex architectural and microarchitectural features. Documents test plans and drives technical reviews of plans and proofs with design and architecture teams. Incorporates and executes security activities within test plans, including regression and debug tests, to ensure security coverage. Maintains and improves existing functional verification infrastructure and methodology.
