Job Description and Requirements

At Synopsys, we’re at the heart of the innovations that change the way we work and play. Self-driving cars. Artificial Intelligence. The cloud. 5G. The Internet of Things. These breakthroughs are ushering in the Era of Smart Everything. And we’re powering it all with the world’s most advanced technologies for chip design and software security. If you share our passion for innovation, we want to meet you.

Our Silicon Design & Verification business is all about building high-performance silicon chips—faster. We’re the world’s leading provider of solutions for designing and verifying advanced silicon chips. And we design the next-generation processes and models needed to manufacture those chips. We enable our customers to optimize chips for power, cost, and performance—eliminating months off their project schedules.

We’re looking for Application Engineer to join the team.

Typically requires a minimum of 5+ years of related experience. Possesses a full understanding of specialization area plus working knowledge of multiple related areas. Unsupervised resolves a wide range of issues in creative ways on a regular basis. Customarily exercises judgment in selecting methods and techniques to obtain solutions. Performs in project leadership role.

Contributes to complex aspects of a project. Creates and develops approach to solutions. Work is collaborative in nature. Provides regular updates to manager on project status. Represents the organization on business unit and/or company-wide projects. Guides more junior peers with aspects of their job. Frequently networks with senior internal and external personnel in own area of expertise.
