Come and join us. Intel is seeking highly qualified candidates to join the BXD (Barefoot Switching Division) in our Network and Edge Group (NEX) as a Design Verification Engineer. We’re part of the Connectivity Group (CG) in Intel’s NEX and are looking for motivated, passionate, and talented design engineers to join our Networking Applications development team for programmable high-speed switching ASICs. We’re a strong, vibrant, cross-site team that helps drive Intel’s programmable switching technology and products to position Tofino as the switching platform of choice for Cloud and Data Center network deployments. In this role, as part of the Chip team, you will need to be passionate about developing high-performance programmable switching ASICs. You will have an excellent opportunity to verify the next generation Intel Programmable Ethernet Switch. As a verification engineer, you will be responsible for building efficient and effective directed and constrained-random validation environments that exercise designs through their corner-cases and demonstrate conformance to specifications. You need analytic and waveform analysis skills, knowledge of digital design, understanding of object-oriented programming, and detailed understanding of IEEE and IETF specifications to verify large networking ASICs comprised of tens of billions of transistors. You will be responsible for development of UVM test benches and tests, developing test plans, coverage plans, and coding functional coverage. The ideal candidate should exhibit the following behavioral traits:

  • Must be a team player with problem-solving and communication skills
  • Personal drive and willing to be dedicated
  • Work independently and at various levels of abstraction
  • Thoughtful and perceptive analytical capability
