Job Description



Senior Verification Engineer

Xilinx Edinburgh is adding to its Wireless Communication Design and Verification team. This is a fantastic opportunity for an Electronic Engineer with a passion for FPGA or ASIC development to join a team with access to world-class components and development infrastructure to work on all aspects of the FPGA development cycle. You'll be working in a well-established team responsible for the functional verification of IP components and systems for use by the world’s leading wireless telecommunications companies.


The role primarily involves development of Random-Constrained Functional-Coverage driven SystemVerilog testbenches and includes deriving specifications from customer requirements and industry standards through to verification planning, testbench architecture design and development and product verification. The role also may involve integrating IP models into verification environments, writing assertions/properties, scripting tool flows, and verification of IP developed in high-level languages. Opportunities exist for engineers with different experience levels.


This is an opportunity to work on leading-edge technologies including Wireless products (5G New Radio signal processing, 5G MIMO Beamforming, FEC, O-RAN Fronthaul, eCPRI, Ethernet) using Xilinx's latest Versal and RFSoC products. These applications are critical to our company and to our customer’s success
