Job Description

Do you enjoy challenging digital design verification problems? HII Mission Technologies is seeking out-of-the-box thinkers who can uncover difficult-to-activate corner-case bugs and vulnerabilities in the gate-level netlists of FPGA and ASIC designs.
Candidates for this position will help lead teams of digital designers to utilize industry-standard functional verification tools (e.g., Questa, VCS, Verdi), logical equivalence tools (e.g., OneSpin 360EC), and proprietary software tools to verify design function and integrity. Common verification targets include embedded processors, DSPs, filters, transceivers, data links, systems-on-chip, and decoders. Candidates will be expected to utilize experience in the cybersecurity, electronic warfare, encryption, radar, and/or satellite communications domains to provide perspective on design verification approaches.

Positions are available with our teams in Roanoke, VA or Huntsville, AL.

Essential Job Responsibilities

Candidates will develop models, transactors, stimuli, monitors, and test benches for simulating and uncovering hidden behaviors in gate-level digital netlists. Candidates will be expected to produce clear documentation and test cases demonstrating identified bugs or deviations from the specification. Effective collaboration with teammates to produce cohesive results and create improved processes is required.

Minimum Qualifications

9 years relevant experience with a Bachelor's in a related field; 7 years relevant experience with a Master's in a related field; 4 years relevant experience with a PhD or Juris Doctorate in a related field; or High School Diploma or equivalent and 13 years relevant experience.

Willingness to obtain a Top-Secret security clearance
Degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science, or a related field
Experience with modern digital verification and modeling languages: SystemVerilog, SystemC, C/C++, Matlab, etc.
UVM concepts
Directed, constrained-random, and assertion-based verification (ABV) techniques at the gate, interface, and transaction levels, including SVA
Experience with modern, commercial-grade, functional simulators (e.g., Xcelium, Incisive, Questa, VCS, Riviera-Pro, etc.)
Writing scripts for batched verification tasks: Python, Bash, Tcl, make files.
Revision control systems for maintaining, sharing, and deploying code: Perforce, git, SVN, etc.
Familiarity with debugging and isolating issues with gate-level netlists

Preferred Requirements

Familiarity with object-oriented, embedded, assembly, or machine code programming
Software or hardware reverse-engineering (e.g., IDA Pro, Ghidra)
FPGA design or verification
Active Secret or Top Secret security clearance
Familiarity with testing and verification techniques for IC trust, assurance, or security
Experience with logical equivalence checkers (e.g., OneSpin 360-EC, ESP, Conformal EC)
Experience with formal ABV
