Analog IC Design Senior Staff Engineer (Dresden, Germany)

Job Overview:

Do you enjoy working in a creative fast-growing entrepreneurial environment? With indie you´ll never walk alone! We value our team high and pursue excellence for our employees and customers!

Indie Semiconductor is a fabless semiconductor company specializing in the design of innovative mixed-signal System-on-Chip (SoC) solutions for automotive applications. Join and grow our new Dresden Design Center.

Our design team develops custom and standard SoC solutions for automotive applications which integrate advanced digital ICs (Arm®Cortex® MCUs and/or DSP) with mixed-signal devices into a single System-in-Package (SiP). The mixed signal can include power management, RF, high voltage as well as high speed convertors allowing us to provide complete solutions to our international customer base. You will join a small team of highly competent engineers that are creating brand new designs to implement the advanced sensing, connectivity and control required to enable modern automotive applications.

Job Responsibilities:

You will manage and execute all activities associated with the concept, development and validation of IPs, especially:

  • Lead new block design circuits from marketing requirements and system architecture studies.

  • Derive quick and effective design circuits to meet the design target within the scope of the project.

  • Write the associated specification, design review and test requirements documentation.

  • Help improve the design quality, flow, processes for first time design success and high yield manufacturability (DFM). Willingness to lead some task force to improve design flow.

  • Build behavioral modeling of analog and digital circuits and complete mixed signal simulations for verification of chip level and system level performance.

  • Create, build and execute AMS based verification test plans.

  • Define layout requirements for layout engineers or complete the circuit layout autonomously.

  • Close collaboration with other design team members including system, application, software, lab and ATE test engineers.

  • Test, characterize, and debug designs in the lab as necessary.


With us you must love working within a small entity where everyone makes a difference to the company success. Creativity, Ownership and Excellence we value high.

These are the skills and know how an ideal candidate would bring. We understand that nobody is perfect! After all, your new job should challenge you and you should have the possibilities to grow.

  • Master´s degree (or equivalent, e. g. Diplom) in Electrical Engineering with 5+ years of experience designing custom ICs.

  • Demonstrated knowledge of BCD (Bipolar, CMOS, DMOS) silicon process technologies involving high voltage and automotive requirements, standards and specifications.

  • Demonstrated knowledge of transistor-level analog circuit simulation tools and frontend environments with extensive experience with Cadence Virtuoso.

  • Demonstrated knowledge of implementation of mixed-signal IC design and layout.

  • Demonstrated ability to characterize and troubleshoot IC designs in the lab.

  • Knowledge and experience of design techniques related to power management (switch-mode power converters, LDOs, battery chargers, motor driver etc.), high-voltage or automotive products is a plus.

  • Knowledge and experience of Automotive ESD and EMC requirements and design techniques to meet such constraints is a plus.

  • Outstanding communication and leadership skills, fluent in English.
