Do you love creating elegant solutions to highly complex challenges? Do you intrinsically see the importance in every detail? As part of our Silicon Technologies group, you’ll help design and manufacture our next-generation, high-performance, power-efficient processor, system-on-chip (SoC). You’ll ensure Apple products and services can seamlessly and efficiently handle the tasks that make them beloved by millions. Joining this group means you’ll be responsible for crafting and building the technology that fuels Apple’s devices. Together, you and your team will enable our customers to do all the things they love with their devices. In this role you will own defining, implementing, and supporting the methodologies, flows, and tools necessary to verify transistor-level circuits in the areas of timing, signal integrity and circuit verification. You will work very closely with digital and analog designers to ensure that their designs meet functionality, timing, electrical, power, and signal integrity goals.

Key Qualifications
