Location: Beaverton, OR, US

Company: Skyworks

Are you looking for the next step in advancing your career in the world of technology?
Skyworks Audio Solutions is at the forefront of audio and voice technology innovation with our analog system on chips (ASoCs), for applications such as smart speakers/microphones, wired/wireless headsets, virtual assistants and intelligent gaming controllers. We are continuously growing our team to develop market specific ASoCs which combine breakthrough ultra-low power analog circuits, highly efficient power management and custom hardware accelerators for smart acoustic signal processing and AI features. Our proprietary technology achieves the highest level of integration in the industry and sets a new performance standard for low power consumption and minimal footprint.

Requisition ID: 63025 


Your Role

We are a passionate and dedicated team of world-class analog, mixed-signal and digital designers committed to building the next generation of ASoCs. This position is for an experienced and equally passionate analog designer/leader interested in excellent personal and professional growth opportunities.

You will lead all aspects of the design, from concept to architecture, modeling, simulation, and implementation of RF transceivers to be included on sub-45nm CMOS SOCs. Working with digital and firmware architects, you will optimize analog and RF block specifications to meet product requirements for radio performance, power consumption, and system features. You will model and simulate the blocks and develop pre- and post-silicon verification suites. You will work with circuit designers to verify their blocks, leading to mixed-signal simulations of the entire transceiver. 

This is a technical leadership position and requires an individual skilled in making architectural and circuit implementation decisions
You will interface with other engineering teams within the business unit, including your digital design counterpart for SOCs, verification, layout, validation and production test.
Flawless execution, with a sense of urgency is key, but also to be an “out of the box” thinker, to find innovative solutions to our customer’s problems

Your Profile

Proven track record of exceptional performance in RF, analog and mixed-signal system and circuit design
15+ years (BSEE), 12+ years (MSEE) or 8+ years (Phd) of relevant industry experience
Solid foundation in RF theory and transceiver architectures, including for Bluetooth and WiFi
Strong awareness of competing solutions and commercial challenges
Experience in system-level modeling and simulation in Matlab, VerilogA, Virtuoso AMS, ADS, etc.
Experienced in producing detailed technical specifications, reports and documentation
Experience in CMOS RF design at 2.4 and 5GHz, including LNAs, PAs, frequency synthesizers
Experience in data converters, especially continuous-time delta-sigma modulators (CTDSMs)
Competent in the Cadence design environment, laboratory methodologies and analog layout methodologies
Professional, open and highly self-motivated attitude

Ideally you are also experienced in:
Hands-on design in sub-45nm CMOS
Low-power circuit architectures and methodologies
Power converter design

Why join us?
We passionately believe that by working at Skyworks Audio Solutions, you will be joining the brightest, most diverse and ambitious talent in the Semiconductor Industry. You will find a fast-paced environment with a strong focus on execution, global collaboration, minimal layers of management and the freedom to make meaningful contributions in a setting that encourages creativity and out-of-the-box thinking. Our work culture values diversity, social responsibility, open communication, mutual trust and respect.
