Our pioneering and inventive spirit has enabled us to be at the forefront of many technological advancements in our nation's history - from the first flight across the Atlantic Ocean, to stealth bombers, to landing on the moon. We look for people who have bold new ideas, courage and a pioneering spirit to join forces to invent the future, and have fun along the way. Our culture thrives on intellectual curiosity, cognitive diversity and bringing your whole self to work - and we have an insatiable drive to do what others think is impossible. Our employees are not only part of history, they're making history. The Northrop Grumman Mission Systems (NGMS) Advanced Processing Solutions Business pushes the boundaries of innovation, redefines the leading edge of exotic new technologies, and drives advances in the sciences. One of our most challenging new fields is Transformational Computing, which combines the unique properties of superconductivity and quantum mechanics to develop radical new energy-efficient computing systems. Our team is chartered with providing the skills to transform computing beyond Moore's Law, advancing development of computer architectures, processing/memory subsystems, and large scale high performance computing systems. You'll work in a fast-paced team environment alongside a broad array of scientists and engineers to make these processing solutions a reality and deliver remarkable new advantages to the warfighter. We are seeking a front-end ASIC design engineer for design and verification of full-custom digital and mixed signal Superconducting Circuits. Must be proficient in Verilog, System Verilog or VHDL RTL coding, writing functional test benches and have a thorough understanding of synchronous digital design concepts. Must be able to create a functional verification plan based on requirements of the circuit. Able to generate manufacturing test vectors and manufacturing test plan. Must be knowledgeable in synthesis, SDC constraints, formal verification, and static timing. Knowledge of scan insertion and ATPG is a plus. Able to interface with place and route engineers for floor planning and clocktree constraints and timing closure. Automated place and route and physical verification knowledge is a plus. Must have strong written and oral communication skills. Responsibilities: Circuit behavioral coding in Verilog, System Verilog or VHDL RTL. Circuit synthesis, formal verification, and static timing using state of the art digital ASIC design tools. Developing verification plans based on requirements of the circuit and creating circuit functional test benches in RTL.
