Role Number: 200121734

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! We are looking for a talented and creative engineer to support the power activity of Apple best-in-class GPU development.

Key Qualifications

  • Perform front-end and back-end power triaging and optimization on GPU designs.
  • Implement power fixes for both RTL and micro-architecture, evaluate savings and prioritize relevant takedowns.
  • Profile and identify best power sign-off tests to improve new feature coverage for best power analysis.
  • Develop early power analysis heuristics to identify power takedowns in the absence of power tests passing simulation.


For this role, the candidate must have a strong analytical expertise, power, software and micro-architecture background to support the following activities: Develop energy models for power targets, "What-if" analysis and early power estimation. Collaborate with the micro-architecture teams on design implementations to obtain better power efficiency without compromising performance. Work with designers on RTL power analysis and reduction. Support the various gate-level power rollup and analysis. Develop heuristics to accelerate power analysis on larger power data set.

Education & Experience

MSEE or equivalent is required.
