Safety Verification Engineer, CPU

US, CA, Santa Clara • US, MA, Westford • US, CA, Santa Clara • 2 Locations
Full time

NVIDIA has continuously reinvented itself over two decades. Our invention of the GPU in 1999 sparked the growth of the PC gaming market, redefined modern computer graphics, and revolutionized parallel computing. More recently, GPU deep learning ignited modern AI — the next era of computing. NVIDIA is a “learning machine” that constantly evolves by adapting to new challenges that are hard to tackle, that only we can pursue, and that matter to the world. This is our life’s work, to amplify human creativity and intelligence.

At NVIDIA, we are building the system, hardware, and software technology which enables autonomous driving. Our CPU engineering team is currently looking for a Safety Verification Engineer to help develop the next generation of system on chip (SoC) products for autonomous driving. On our CPU development team, you will have a chance to create and work with some of the most exciting technologies in the world. You will be part of the team inventing autonomous driving products using the most advanced CPU complexes in the industry. Our team is developing an end-to-end AI computing product for self-driving-cars, and safety is of paramount importance.

What you’ll be doing:

You will be working closely with internal and partner safety engineering teams to deliver innovative products. Specific responsibilities of this role include:

  • Collaborate with architects and designers to understand optimal implementations of safety diagnostics in hardware and software.

  • Perform safety analysis and verification activities to confirm NVIDIA designs meet applicable performance targets, and aggressively work to improve products when issues are identified.

  • Work on the optimization, automation, and training of engineering teams and development of standard methodologies to ensure speed of light execution

  • Provide support of third party assessment of NVIDIA safety concepts and SoC implementations.

  • Assist in creation of safety manuals, analysis reports, and user guides.

What we need to see:

  • Bachelor’s degree (or equivalent experience) in an engineering field with 2-5 years of experience in hardware design and verification

  • Familiarity with Linux and scripting (Perl / Python / shell)

  • Excellent analytical, written, and verbal communication skills.

  • Strong debugging skills

Ways to stand out from the crowd:

  • Experience in conducting safety analyses on semiconductors with high degree of logic integration

  • Experience with ASIC design and verification tools, such as simulators, waveform viewers, and hardware emulation platforms

  • Familiarity with software testing methodologies

NVIDIA gives automakers, tier-1 suppliers, automotive research institutions, and start-ups the power and flexibility to develop and deploy breakthrough artificial intelligence (AI) systems for self-driving vehicles. NVIDIA's unified AI computing architecture enables training deep neural networks in the data center on the NVIDIA DGX-1™, and then seamlessly runs them on NVIDIA DRIVE AGX inside the vehicle. This end-to-end approach uses NVIDIA DriveWorks software and allows cars to receive over-the-air updates to add new features and capabilities throughout the life of a vehicle. We believe that realizing self-driving cars will be a defining contribution of our generation (e.g. traffic accidents are responsible for ~1.25 million deaths per year worldwide). We have the funding and scale, and are looking for high quality, self motivated individuals to grow our team. NVIDIA is widely considered to be one of the technology world’s most desirable employers. We have some of the most forward-thinking and innovative people in the world working for us. Are you creative, autonomous and love a challenge? If so, we want to hear from you so you can be a part of the NVIDIA family!

The base salary range is $108,000 - $195,500. 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.

NVIDIA is committed to fostering a diverse work environment and proud to be an equal opportunity employer. As we highly value diversity in our current and future employees, we do not discriminate (including in our hiring and promotion practices) on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, gender expression, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, disability status or any other characteristic protected by law.
