Role Number: 200055553

Do you love creating elegant solutions to highly complex challenges? Do you intrinsically see the importance in every detail? As part of our Silicon Technologies group, you'll help design and manufacture our next-generation, high-performance, power-efficient processor, system-on-chip (SoC). You'll ensure Apple products and services can seamlessly handle the tasks that make them beloved by millions. Joining this group means you'll be crafting and building the technology that fuels Apple's devices. Together, we enable our customers to do all the things they love with their devices. In this role, you will be responsible for synthesis, timing closure, and power optimization of Apple developed GPUs. As part of the Hardware design team, you will collaborate closely with the RTL Design and PD teams to ensure creation of the highest quality gate-level netlists.

Key Qualifications

  • Own unit RTL to gate-level netlist synthesis.
  • Use advanced synthesis techniques to meet aggressive timing, power, and area targets.
  • Propose novel synthesis and RTL solutions to improve netlist quality.
  • Work with RTL design and PD teams to deliver best-in-class GPU designs.


Experience with front-end design synthesis and large chip integration. Proficient in timing analysis, formal verification, and lint checks. Proficient in multi-clock and multi-power-domain designs. Understanding of floor-planning, placement, congestion, and setup/hold timing closure Hands on experience with ECOs for functionality and timing. Ability to propose logically equivalent RTL transforms to reduce power and area. Familiarity with DFT insertion. Scripting and programming experience Experience with RTL - System Verilog or VHDL. Experience working on CPUs, GPUs, or DSPs is desirable Excellent written and verbal communication, excellent organization skills, and highly self-motivated Ability to work well in a team and be productive under aggressive schedules.
