Analog IC Design – Principal Engineer (Boston)

Job Overview:

Indie Semiconductor is a fabless semiconductor company specializing in the design of mixed-signal automotive semiconductor solutions. Our multi-disciplinary team develops custom automotive-centric ICs that integrate ARM Cortex-M based microcontrollers together with analog/mixed-signal RF and Power Management IPs, delivering complete solutions in wireless and USB power delivery, sensing systems and connectivity within the car. 

We are seeking a talented and motivated analog/mixed-signal IC Design Engineer to join and grow our new Boston Design Center. This is an exciting opportunity to develop challenging and innovative ICs in a fast-growing startup environment, where your contribution directly drives the success of the Boston Design Center and Indie Semiconductor as a whole. 

Job Responsibilities:

You will take ownership of large-scale or complex IP designs from beginning to end, participate in the IP system-level definition with marketing and customer-facing teams, perform system/design architecture or transistor-level feasibility studies and balance tradeoffs, analyze and drive IP design requirements to meet or solve gaps in existing IP, and quickly generate robust area-efficient circuits that meet their specifications. As needed, you may also lead a small team of junior design engineers on the IP design. As part of the design process, you will also build behavioral models of both analog and digital circuits, collaborate with the layout team to ensure good physical implementation of your circuits, and complete analog/mixed-signal simulations that verify your IP as well as the top-level blocks integrating your IP. To promote a strong IP reuse approach, you will thoroughly document your IP design, drive bench/production test plans and assist in a detailed evaluation and debug of your IP. You will also be expected to help identify, contribute, or lead a task force on continuous improvements in the design flow and methodology. Our ideal candidate is both an effective team player and team lead, works efficiently and achieves progress despite limited or ambiguous information, and displays sound engineering judgement in all aspects of their role.


  • Master’s Degree in Electrical Engineering with 10+ years of experience in analog/mixed-signal IC design within the semiconductor industry

  • Proven track record of implementation on first-pass functional silicon on at least 5 analog ICs in one or more CMOS/BCD processes, with design lead or project management experience on at least 2 of these ICs  

  • New IP generation and architecture or system-level definition experience. Knowledge of ESD protection techniques is a plus  

  • Strong lab skills paired with experience in debugging and evaluating silicon

  • Solid grasp of analog circuit design fundamentals and theory

  • Strong knowledge and understanding of industry standard design conventions and design for manufacturability (DFM) practices

  • Good proficiency with transistor-level circuit design tools like Cadence Virtuoso, AMS

  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills, good attention to detail

  • Demonstrated ability to work autonomously yet not independently. Prior experience at a startup company or a small team environment is a plus

  • 7+ years of Power Management IC design (LDOs, switch-mode power converters, battery chargers, etc.), or design experience with high-voltage or automotive products is a plus

Work Location: Greater Boston area (Massachusetts) preferred but exceptional candidates located remotely within the same time zone will be considered
