Location: San Diego, California
The team is currently seeking a candidate for the position of pre and post silicon power and thermal IP and SOC validation engineer. In this role you will work with a local and global team to understand, implement and verify the power features, power savings, power saving predictions, thermal IP, and performance of implementations of current and next-generation SoCs. You will create and execute test plans in both emulation and Post-Si environments, and work to Client, root-cause and correct failures in hardware and software. Additionally, you will create the software and flows which allow the maximum use of power saving features. All Qualcomm employees are expected to actively support diversity on their teams, and in the Company.
