Who We Are

Cisco’s silicon team has a proud heritage with over 20-years of demonstrated excellence in delivering creative, high performance, quality silicon across Cisco’s networking portfolio. Network processors, DSP, wireless, security, SoCs and beyond. Silicon provides the differentiation that enables Cisco products to achieve multi-billion dollars in revenue. Our team is looking for forward-thinking, hardworking, and passionate ASIC engineers to help lead Cisco through the digital transformation of today. You will be challenged to tap into your expertise to architect, design, verify, and implement Cisco’s next generation of state of the art ASICs.

Responsibilities:

  • Architect and implement complex RTL designs.
  • Collaborate with the physical design team to resolve implementation and timing issues and to optimize power.
  • Scope third party IP requirements and solicit vendors.
  • Analyze code coverage and provide feedback to the verification team to achieve coverage closure.
  • Triage, debug, and root cause simulation, software bring-up, and customer failures.
  • Perform diagnostic and post silicon validation tests in the lab.
  • Mentor and coach colleagues.

Qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Electrical or Computer engineering.
  • 5+ years of ASIC design experience.
  • Excellent Verilog/System Verilog programming skills.
  • Proficient in physical design, implementation, and synthesis constraints.
  • Experience with low-power design and clock domain crossings.
  • Strong interactive and waveform debug skills.
  • Good written and verbal communication skills.
  • Collaborative and team-focused with the commitment to learn and grow.
  • Understanding of SoC and/or networking ASICs highly desirable.
  • Scripting experience (Python, Perl, TCL, shell programming) highly desirable.

We Are Cisco

#WeAreCisco, where each person is unique, but we bring our talents to work as a team and make a difference. Here’s how we do it.

We embrace digital, and help our customers implement change in their digital businesses. Some may think we’re “old” (30 years strong!) and only about hardware, but we’re also a software company. And a security company. An AI/Machine Learning company. We even invented an intuitive network that adapts, predicts, learns and protects. No other company can do what we do – you can’t put us in a box!

But “Digital Transformation” is an empty buzz phrase without a culture that allows for innovation, creativity, and yes, even failure (if you learn from it.) 

Day to day, we focus on the give and take. We give our best, we give our egos a break and we give of ourselves (because giving back is built into our DNA.) We take accountability, we take bold steps, and we take difference to heart. Because without diversity of thought and a commitment to equality for all, there is no moving forward.

 

So, you have colorful hair? Don’t care. Tattoos? Show off your ink. Like polka dots? That’s cool.
