Emulation Lead

Mountain View, CA
About us:
Aeva is building the next generation of sensing and perception for autonomous vehicles and beyond. With its unique ability to measure instantaneous velocity for each pixel, long-range performance at high resolutions, while being free from LiDAR or sunlight interference, Aeva’s 4D LiDAR is built from the ground up at silicon photonics scale for mass-market applications.

Role Overview:
Own, maintain and enhance the palladium infrastructure for SoC verification.

What you'll be doing:

  • Deliver emulation models on leading-edge emulation platforms
  • Debug test failures and simulation/emulation mismatches
  • Bring up external interfaces such as DDR, Serdes, JTAG, Speed bridges, ADCs, etc.. on emulation platforms
  • Develop and operate pre/post-silicon tests from prototype through silicon validation to production

What you'll have:

  • 5+ years background in SoC and high-performance IP verification
  • Deep understanding of at least one emulation platform, i.e. compile, debug, and infrastructure creation.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Ability to collaborate deeply with design, verification, architecture, and management teams.
  • Ability to deliver results in a very fast-moving environment
  • Desire to learn & implement groundbreaking new hardware technology


  • Knowledge of advanced verification techniques (transaction-level self-checking test benches, constrained random testing, UVM, etc.)
  • Post-silicon bring up and validation planning and execution experience
  • Leadership skills
  • Proficient in scripting/software development with Python, C/C++
  • Firmware development
  • Diagnostics development

What's in it for you:

  • Be part of a fast paced and dynamic team
  • Very competitive compensation and meaningful stock grants
  • Exceptional benefits: Medical, Dental, Vision, and more
  • Unlimited PTO: We care about results, not punching timecards
