  • What You'll Do

    You will join the Product Development Team as a System Level Test Engineer in the Silicon Operations team taking Silicon One ASICS from proto to production. You will be working with custom network processors, transceivers, mixed signal ICs, multi-die modules, bare die and stacked die.

    Our team drives the post-silicon validation cycle to meet Product Quality and Time to Market Metrics. We develop test requirements for groundbreaking IP, to minimize test overhead both in design and for production. We develop custom test solutions spanning high power, large dies and packages to cost-sensitive products.

    In a multi-function team, you will define and develop system test and characterization plans for high speed IPs like PCIe and SerDes. You will design test hardware, bring up test, and release test programs to production. In this role, you will utilize your expertise with Linux and python automate and deploy SoC system test in volume manufacturing. You will work closely with OSATs to set up test infrastructure as well as deploy test programs to production.

    Who You'll Work With

    We collaborate with ASIC design teams as well as several peer groups in Supply Chain Operations to influence Cisco Silicon One Productization Strategy.

    Why 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. A blockchain 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 dedication 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.
