Job Description


The Microsoft Silicon team is transforming the ways people communicate, create, and collaborate through the devices and components we develop. We are a growing team of engineers on a mission to develop revolutionary designs and ship first-to-market products. Azure, XBOX, Surface, and HoloLens incorporate our internally developed silicon components.

Our team is creative and resourceful; we value growth and learning.

We want to amplify your abilities so you can do your best work.

Join us, and together we will turn groundbreaking hardware designs into reality!


Required Qualifications

  • A bachelor’s or master’s degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science, or a related degree.

  • 7+ years of experience with system level test in validation and/or manufacturing test environments in terms of architecture/design, execution, data collection, analysis, correlations, application selection/specification and platform/hardware requirements.

  • 5+ years of experience in developing ICs (pre-silicon, first silicon bring-up, new product introduction).

  • Experience with system level test for products in any of the following categories: CPUs, GPUs, high performance compute.

  • Experience in OSAT and supply chain management.

  • Proficient at writing software and scripts with industry standard languages such as Python, C/C++.

Preferred Qualifications

  • Exceptional knowledge of system level test architecture, infrastructure (i.e., hardware and software) requirements, test case development flows, test case generation and selection.

  • Strong communication, collaboration, and teamwork skills.

  • Adaptability

    (responds, explores, constructive attitude)

  • Growth Mindset

    (It starts with a belief that everyone can grow and develop)

  • Understanding of product manufacturing and test processes.

  • Experience with:

    • End-to-end silicon engineering taking products from pre-silicon readiness to first silicon bring up and production

    • System level test cases (SLT) definition/generation/selection/execution and data analysis

    • System characterization test case definition/generation/selection/execution and data analysis

    • Thermal control and feedback

    • Thermal management of higher power devices

    • Debug tools such as oscilloscope, DMM, SMU, VNA

    • Performance (i.e., power management features, mode optimization, voltage margining/checking) applications on SLT

    • Datacenters, CPUs, AI, machine learning, digital neural networks would be an asset.

    • Data collection/analysis and debugging system failures

    • Scripting and automation

  • Customer Focus

    (anticipates needs and proactively meets expectations)

  • Drive for results

    (actively pursues outcome, delivers on commitments)

  • Influence for impact

The position will have responsibility for product engineering, with a focus on:

  • Developing system level test (SLT) platform, strategy, requirements, tools, methodologies across hardware and software.

  • Collaborating with team members and partner teams to develop and integrate hardware, firmware, content, automation solution for SLT platform.

  • Generate and leverage correlation, characterization, and performance data to optimize outgoing quality and power/performance.

  • Manage production ramp and execution issues on OSAT for System Level Testing (SLT). Work on improving stability, test time and yield of System Level Testing at OSAT.

  • Involve in RMA checkout, debug and dispositioning. This includes system level failure triage and debug across silicon, hardware, software as well as identification of test coverage improvement at ATE or SLT socket to plug the RMA gap.

  • Product characterization and correlation for power/performance from system to ATE.

  • Define, guide, and contribute to the development of the software automation infrastructure for SLT and system to tester correlation activities.

  • Management of multiple development activities across a variety of product groups.

Customer obsessed

We will learn about our customers and their businesses with a beginner’s mind and then bring solutions that meet their needs. We will be insatiable in our desire to learn from the outside and bring it into Microsoft, while still innovating to surprise and delight our users.

Diverse & inclusive

The world is diverse. We will better serve everyone on the planet by representing everyone on the planet. We will be open to learning our own biases and changing our behaviors, so we can tap into the collective power of everyone at Microsoft. We don’t just value differences, we seek them out, we invite them in. And as a result, our ideas are better, our products are better, and our customers are better served.

One Microsoft

We are a family of individuals united by a single, shared mission. It’s our ability to work together that makes our dreams believable and ultimately achievable. We will build on the ideas of others and collaborate across boundaries to bring the best of Microsoft to our customers as one. We are proud to be part of team Microsoft.

Making a difference

If we commit to being customer obsessed, becoming more diverse and inclusive, and operating as One Microsoft, we will achieve our mission to empower every person and organization on the planet. Beyond that, we will make a difference and find deep meaning in our work. We stand in awe of what humans dare to achieve and are motivated every day to empower others to do more and achieve more through our technology and innovation.

We fundamentally believe that we need a culture founded in a Growth Mindset. It starts with a belief that everyone can grow and develop; that potential is nurtured, not pre-determined; and that anyone can change their mindset.
