Full time

NVIDIA is looking for Formal Verification Engineer to help verify the design and implementation of industry’s leading CPUs and other High Performance Computing Solutions. As a Formal Verification Engineer, you will play a key role in ensuring the functional correctness and completeness of our next generation chip designs. You will collaborate with a team of highly skilled engineers to develop and implement formal verification methodologies using formal verification tools, define the verification scope, and ensure design correctness. You will employ advanced formal techniques to obtain sufficiently bounded proofs while working with architects, designers, and pre- & post-silicon verification teams to accomplish your tasks.

What you will be doing:

  • Identify key behaviors for verification to write clear testplans for complex designs.

  • Execute testplans using the latest formal techniques, including the development of environment assumptions, assertions and cover properties.

  • Develop abstraction models to overcome complexity challenges and obtain full proofs, or bounded proofs with sufficient coverage.

  • Drive tools to realize their best performance.

  • Debug RTL to identify causes of failure scenarios.

  • Contribute to flow and script development to improve team efficiency.

  • Articulate formal verification coverage of the design to partners.

What we need to see: 

  • BS/MS/PhD or equivalent experience in CS/CE/EE/Mathematics.

  • 2-5 years of experience within the verification field

  • Solid understanding of GPU/CPU architectures and designs.

  • Strong analytical skills to solve complex problems.

  • Knowledge of formal verification methodologies and techniques.

  • Able to implement abstraction techniques for effective verification.

  • Hands-on experience with Verilog / System Verilog HDLs, temporal logic assertions, and able to understand complex RTL quickly.

  • Excellent command of scripting using TCL, Perl, and Python.

  • Preferable experience with Formal Verification Tools (eg. Jasper Gold, VC Formal )

  • Excellent interpersonal skills, able to effectively collaborate and work with members of a distributed team.

The base salary range is $108,000 - $172,500. Your base salary will be determined based on your location, experience, and the pay of employees in similar positions.

You will also be eligible for equity and benefits.
