TSMC: Memory Design Lead


This is a Full-time position in Ottawa, ON posted July 18, 2021.

Description Do you want to work on the future technologies?

Do you want to solve next generation circuit problems no one else has even encountered yet?

Do you want your circuits in mass production?

TSMC is the world’s most advanced semiconductor foundry employing 50,000 people and first company to ramp 5nm & 7nm into mass production.

TSMC is looking for circuit design talent to join its world-class SRAM compiler team.

This is a career opportunity!

Come join the design team responsible for delivering the biggest and most complex TSMC compiler designs.

We are located in Ottawa, Canada.

Great place to work.

Great place to live!

TSMC is an equal opportunity employer with policies and practices in place to support an inclusive and accessible work environment.

Job Function: TSMC Canada is looking for a senior memory designer to join its leading edge SRAM design team within TSMC R& D.

The Designer will be involved in the research and design of the projects on the world’s most advanced CMOS/FinFET processes (5nm and below).

This will involve detailed implementation of high speed and high density memory compilers.

One can expect these designs to be used in mainstream products and not just be an academic exercise.Depending on the experience of the candidate, the mandate will be extended appropriately.

Responsibilities:The successful candidate will join a world class memory design center.
