Why Alphawave SEMI

We are looking for an experienced Staff Level Firmware Engineer to join our dynamic Central R&D Software team and lead the firmware development of our UCIe Chiplets portfolio. This critical role includes everything from pre-silicon to post-silicon stages and entails implementing and utilizing software/firmware/embedded industry best practices. You will have experience driving firmware definition, architecture, and development starting from the RTL/Digital design phase with EDA tool/simulator integration all the way to the post silicon phase with board level bring up and debug. It is a collaborative role where you will need to work with Hardware/Systems/Software teams to lead requirements and successful chip bring up. You will also be working with firmware and embedded software engineers to drive code re-use throughout the organization, program managers to identify and work toward deadlines and timelines, and other cross functional teams as needed from the hardware, systems, or software side. You will help build next-generation chip let IP and semiconductors that meet our organization’s and quality standards.

What You’ll Do:

  • Gather requirements, studying high level designs and turning them into smaller building blocks to bring the hardware up and integrate the blocks into a bigger system
  • Work with different teams to come up with the detailed bring up and validation requirements, collaborating with hardware and systems engineers to meet performance goals
  • Communicate requirements and coordinate execution with multiple teams
  • Translating bring up and validation requirements into efficient firmware code, PCB requirements, software organization as applicable
  • Oversee the entire firmware lifecycle for UCIe Chiplets, from pre-silicon design to post-silicon validation and optimization
  • Develop for test and debug to help guide hardware design decisions for future product iterations
  • Work with hardware design engineers to contribute to chip architecture, requirements, and functionalities.
