Greater Boston area, Massachusetts

Job Overview:

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

indie is an Autotech solutions innovator. We focus on edge sensors spanning multiple modalities including LiDAR, radar, ultrasound and vision for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), autonomous vehicles, connected car, user experience and electrification applications.

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 IP designs from beginning to end, analyze the IP design requirements to meet marketing and system-level specifications, perform design architecture or transistor-level feasibility studies, and quickly generate robust area-efficient circuits that meet their specifications. 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 and contribute to continuous improvements in the design flow and methodology. Our ideal candidate is meticulous yet efficient and displays sound engineering judgement in all aspects of their role.

  • Master’s Degree in Electrical Engineering with 5+ years of experience in analog/mixed-signal IC design within the semiconductor industry

  • Proven track record of silicon implementation on one or more CMOS/BCD processes

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

  • Solid grasp of analog circuit design fundamentals and theory

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

  • Working proficiency with transistor-level circuit design tools like Cadence Virtuoso

  • 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
