Engineering – Hardware
California – San Diego
Qualcomm is the leading fabless design company, providing hardware, software, and related services to nearly every mobile device maker and operator in the global wireless marketplace. A state-of-the-art high-performance, low-power, and area-effective standard cell library provides a strong foundation for Qualcomms multi-tier mobile SOC roadmap. The Qualcomm standard cell library team is searching for a highly qualified engineer who can lead the development of next-generation standard cell libraries for 5G mobile SOC and automotive subsystems. The candidate will define, develop, and advance standard cell libraries through a holistic method linking advanced process technologies to circuit design and to SOC design. The candidate will deliver the best-in-class library optimized for performance, power, area, and reliability. The candidate will dynamically interact with broad engineering organizations and also influence the library roadmap and development at leading foundries.
All Qualcomm employees are expected to actively support diversity on their teams, and in the Company.
