mmWave IC Designer

Feb 25, 2021


You have a solid design experience in mm-wave IC design with a silicon-proven track record. You worked with advanced CMOS technology nodes, preferably on high-speed wireless communication applications. You are eager to join a dynamic team developing products for next-generation 5G systems and beyond. You are a self-motivated, independent and efficient team member that has good communication skills and brings advanced IC design experience to the team.

We’re open to multiple levels of experience.


We are looking for RFIC designers who own and contribute to several parts of the RFIC, including mm-wave front-end, frequency conversion, buffering and distribution.

Depending on background and experience, responsibilities include:

  • design of front-end blocks (e.g., PA, LNA, phase shifter);
  • design of upconversion/downconversion mixers;
  • design of mm-wave passive structures (e.g., TL, transformer, power splitter/combiner);
  • design of mm-wave buffers, drivers and VGA’s.


The successful candidate has a proven track record with expertise in mm-wave IC design.

Following requirements are a must, candidates must tick all boxes to be considered:

  • Sc. or Ph.D. (or equivalent) degree in Electrical Engineering with relevant background;
  • solid experience in mm-wave circuit design;
  • passive design experience (e.g., TL, transformer, power splitter/combiner);
  • contribution to several successful chips with mm-wave circuits;
  • advanced user of Cadence Virtuoso custom IC tool suite.

Following qualifications will make you stand out:

  • Phased array chip design and measurements;
  • DFT and PVT-aware design experience including biasing;
  • chip architectural tradeoffs, interference avoidance and desense analysis
  • experience with characterization and ATE data review and correlation to simulations.
