  • Working effectively with cross functional teams
  • Assessing product feasibility and schedules
  • Undertaking multiple projects in parallel
  • Preparing technical reviews and product documentation
A solid understanding is required in Analog/Mixed Signal IC Design in SiGe, BiCMOS technologies and/or CMOS. Experience is preferable in high speed multi gigabit design in opto electronic products i.e laser drivers or transimpedance amplifiers (TIAs).

The successful applicant will have 10+ years of experience in IC product design preferably for optical applications with experience of low power amplifier design up to 30GHz and beyond. You will have a proven track record of taking high performance, high speed IC designs from concept through to volume production, with a successful commercial outcome. Strong Cadence IC design flow and tools experience is required. Experience of HFSS, ADS and microwave modelling is desirable.
