Job Description and Requirements

Looking for innovative, out of the box thinking Design For Test (DFT) Engineers to be a part of the Test Solution Team under the Test Group at Synopsys. Synopsys technology is at the heart of innovations that are changing the way we live and work. The Test Group is a critical part of the change delivering a complete DFT solution to fulfill the customer needs.

The Test Solutions engineer works in a project-oriented environment to deliver DFT Solutions ranging from Integration to Silicon Bring-up to customers designing digital ICs of varying complexity. The DFT Solutions engineer interacts with the customers to assess their methodologies and flows, gather requirements and propose solutions. The Test Solution Engineer provides technical support to ensure customer success and satisfaction. Win new customers through product demonstrations, evaluations, and competitive benchmarking. Test Solution Engineer is expected to support customers through technical problem resolution, training and account management. They must be able to interact effectively with end-users at customer sites, as well as with first level managers.
