Job Description/Responsibilities

Achronix is seeking an EDA Tools Software Engineer. The successful candidate will research, invent, implement, test and document robust software user interface solutions for Achronix’s rich set of software tools, covering these functions:

  • IP configuration
  • Synthesis, placement, routing and timing optimization
  • Visualization and diagramming
  • Report generation
  • Live hardware debug tools

These software tools support Achronix’s standalone FPGA and Speedcore embedded FPGA (eFPGA) products. This is a desktop application environment using Java and C++, not a mobile app or web interface. You will initially take over ownership and maintenance of existing features, and add innovative new features to your portfolio over time according to the software feature development roadmap. Utilize your knowledge of EDA tools to help define new features and enhance usability of the software system. Use your skills in Java and Eclipse frameworks to develop the graphical user interface, and your skills in C++ and Python/TCL/Perl to develop backend commands and data processing. You will have a unique opportunity to collaborate directly with other Achronix research and development (R&D) software and hardware team members working on next generation hardware IP and software algorithms while contributing to a culture of agile innovation and continuous quality improvement.
