Job Description

The world is transforming – and so is Intel!  Here at Intel, we believe the world needs technology that can enrich the lives of every person on Earth.We believe that developing these technologies takes a team of exceptionally talented individuals who work together to visualize, innovate, and make the future of computing possible.   If you are excited about advanced development of breakthrough technologies for future-generation CPU cores, we invite you to join us to do something wonderful!

As a member of a CPU Core development team of pre-silicon verification engineers, you will verify new and existing features for Intel’s next generation CPU IP, resulting in a bug-free final design. You will be responsible for exhaustively validating the RTL implementation of new architecture and microarchitecture capabilities, using a combination of unit- and top-level test environments, as well as formal verification.

Responsibilities may include:

  • Collaborate with architect hardware engineers and microcode engineers to understand the new features being implemented
  • Read and interpret technical specs
  • Create high quality technical documentation such as test plan strategy documents and coverage plans
  • Develop test generators and other validation content to be reusable in pre-silicon and post-silicon
  • Debug and root-cause failing verification tests
  • Fix all identified failures in the verification model
  • Investigate new techniques to accelerate validation of CPU hardware


Masters or PhD degree in Electrical or Computer Engineering with 6+ months of experience in:

  • CPU or ASIC verification
  • Programming in C for modeling and assembly language programming
  • Experience with Assertion and Functional Coverage
  • Experience with debugging RTL code using simulation tools
  • Experience with Verilog System Verilog
  • Exposure with OVM UVM

Preferred Experience:

  • Projects or internship in CPU or ASIC verification and functional modeling
  • Experience with scripting languages like Python/Perl is a plus
  • Machine learning

Relevant courses: Computer Architecture; Digital Design Verification; Logic Design; Programming Languages; Data Structures
