Job Description

Staff Analog Design Engineer:


Seeking an experienced Analog/Power IC design engineer for developing complex analog mixed signal/integrated power management ICs for Industrial Control, Industrial Power, Isolation, and other Infrastructure applications. This design group is at the forefront of the EV revolution, working to develop technologies that will revolutionize vehicles and enable new levels of power efficiency.  The position requires a deep analog circuit design background including a strong history of innovative product and IP definition and design.  The desired individual will participate in product roadmaps, definition, technology selection, design, and verification. The individual will have a role in defining land implementing the overall system architecture, designing transistor-level analog circuit blocks, simulating sub-system performance, creating and using behavioral models of blocks and the entire IC, doing and/or supervising physical layout, verifying circuit and chip-level operation and performance, and assisting with tape-out related activities. Responsibilities will also include detailed documentation, silicon evaluation and debugging, production test development support, customer support, and other activities as required to achieve high volume production.


  • Architects, designs and verifies circuits, systems, algorithms, etc. to meet product requirements.
  • Develops innovative new designs for patenting or protecting as trade secrets.
  • Participates and contributes to product definition.
  • Balancing innovation with execution to ensure that the projects are delivered in a timely manner.
  • Demonstrates good judgment in solving a broad range of issues, based on an advanced understanding of industry practices and company policies and procedures.
  • Responsible for custom layout including overseeing the work of layout designers.
  • Reports on design results through design reviews
  • Attends design reviews to provide input and learn from other designers’ experiences.
  • Sets the example for more junior members on the technical team by thoughtful use of quantitative analysis and intuition to solve mixed signal problems of advanced complexity.
  • Research design techniques through technical publications and seminars.
