Qualcomm is a company of inventors that unlocked 5G ushering in an age of rapid acceleration in connectivity and new possibilities that will transform industries, create jobs, and enrich lives. But this is just the beginning. It takes inventive minds with diverse skills, backgrounds, and cultures to transform 5Gs potential into world-changing technologies and products. This is the Invention Age and this is where you come in.
As an experienced design verification engineer, you will be working as part of a global, fast-paced integrated wireless technology team developing and interfacing to various wireless technologies such as IEEE 802.11x, BT, FM and NFC, all embedded into an SOC infrastructure. You will be responsible for coordinating with a multi-geo team to build functional verification infrastructure with full understanding of the expected design functionality, developing test-plans as well as guiding the functional verification of complex SoCs by deploying UVM testbenches until coverage goals are achieved. You will have a great opportunity to work on cutting edge digital chipsets, to leverage your pre and post silicon debug expertise, and to develop the industrys best-in-class SOC verification methodologies. You will be involved in the SoC life cycle from concept to tape out to production.
All Qualcomm employees are expected to actively support diversity on their teams, and in the Company.
