Senior Manager - VLSI

Senior Manager - VLSI

As a Design Manager, you will be working with one or more spec to silicon projects. You will be responsible for architecture of SoC, microarchitecture and generate appropriate documents. You will be working closely with physical design teams, verification teams, software teams and customer to ensure we deliver a high quality SoC subsystem to the customers and ensures successful tapeout.



  • You will be responsible for pre-sales support, proposing architecture to customers based on their requirements.
  • You will be responsible for working with team to come up with architecture and micro-architecture.
  • You will be responsible for working with cross functional team to ensure timely delivery
  • You will manage, grow the design / RTL team to achieve the project goals
  • You will work closely with customer, provide technical support & provide collaterals agreed upon
  • You will work with team to achieve flow, methodology improvements to achieve high reuse
  • You will work with IP vendors to generate / get right configurations of the IP
  • You will manage team work allocation, schedule, risk mitigation and deliverables from design team.
