• Experience with commercial Cadence tools (Virtuoso suite and Spectre simulator products)
• Experience working on large-scale SoC design teams.
• Experience developing Mixed-Signal circuits in state-of-the-art semiconductor fabrication processes (e.g. 7/10/12/14/16nm FinFET CMOS, 22nm FDSOI CMOS, BiCMOS)
• Experience developing Analog/Mixed-Signal ICs for extreme environment applications (e.g. radiation-hardened, extreme low/high temperatures, ultra-long lifetime)
• Experience with development of Analog/Mixed-Signal circuits for hardware security applications
• Experience supporting military radar, communications, electronic warfare, or avionics/mission data processing programs
• Experience organizing and leading teams, including military experience as a commissioned or non-commissioned officer
• Demonstrated track record as a high performance team member
• Excellent verbal and written communication ability

Minimum of a Bachelor of Science degree from an accredited course of study in engineering, computer science, mathematics, physics or chemistry (e.g. Bachelor) and typically 9 or more years' related work experience (e.g. PhD+4 years' related work experience, Master+7 years' related work experience). In the USA, ABET accreditation is the preferred, although not required, accreditation standard.
