Job Description:

The Silicon Engineering and Solutions team is seeking passionate, driven and intellectually curious engineers to join our Central Front-End SoC Tools, Flows and Methodology team. As part of this team, we seek to hire an individual to lead the development and become the owner of our Global Component Libraries. These Front-End components libraries serve many purposes, they are used: to create hand-crafted critical data and control path structures, to provide specialized circuits for use in sensitive clock networks, to provide a one-stop-shop for standard design structures, and finally, to swap simulation behavioral RTL with technology specific RTLResponsibilitiesResponsibilities:In this role, the individual will support our entire silicon organization to develop state-of-the-art SoCs to advance Microsofts hardware road map. If selected, you will:

  • Be part of a central Front-End methodology team developing advanced components for global Front-End libraries such as: datapath and control path, CDC and Clock, Error Correction and Detection, as well as other building-clock components such as decoders, fifos, arbiters, etc.
  • Collaborate with the design community to develop components to meet their needs and to understand their timelines.
  • Consolidate, review, and enhance existing elements from across all areas of hardware at Microsoft.
  • Optimize elements for performance.
