To be successful in this role you will need to have a deep knowledge in processor verification function and architecture, in areas such as cache coherence, memory ordering and consistency as well as experience leading a team.

Other preferred experiences include;
  • Knowledge in Random Instruction Sequencing (RIS) and testing associated as block/unit and chip level for proving correctness
  • Advanced techniques such as formal, assertions, and silicon bringup a plus
  • In-depth knowledge of processor function, architecture, and micro-architecture
  • Experience in writing test plans, portable benches, transactors, and assembly
  • Experience with many different verification methodologies and tools such as simulators, coverage collection, gate level simulation, waveform viewers, or even mixed signal verification
