What you will do

The Compute and Memory Device (CMD) department focuses on the research and development of nonvolatile memory semiconductor technologies (e.g., STT-MRAM, Ferroelectric, FLASH, etc...), for both embedded and standalone applications. All these technologies call for diverse and dedicated test infrastructures. To further strengthen our operations, we are currently looking for a software developer with confirmed experience in C/C++ and Python development. You will support R&D operations, interacting closely with Characterization researchers and Design&Test support teams, to create project-specific test solutions.
In detail, you will:

  • Design, create, debug and maintaining new and preexisting software infrastructures for test of semiconductor memories.
  • Contribute to the design and debug of custom test hardware and all associated developments.
  • Work closely with Characterization researchers and Design&Test support teams to develop technology-specific test solutions.
  • Additional responsibilities may also include developing and implementing data postprocessing solutions, as well as devising new methods to reduce test time while
  • maintaining test completeness.
