Astera Labs is a global leader delivering semiconductor-based connectivity solutions purpose-built to unleash the full potential of intelligent data infrastructure at cloud-scale. Our class-defining first-to-market products based on PCIe, CXL, and Ethernet technologies deliver critical connectivity for high-value artificial intelligence and machine learning applications. Our focus on customer-driven product definition and commitment to design solutions in the cloud, for the cloud, results in breakthrough execution and scale for our customers. We are headquartered in the heart of California’s Silicon Valley, with R&D centers and offices in Taiwan, China, Vancouver and Toronto, Canada, and Haifa, Israel.

We are looking for Senior Design Verification Engineers with a flair for being a code breaker, ability to come up hybrid mechanisms for verification of complex ASICs. Experience with System Verilog, C, C++, Python or other scripting languages would be a plus. Using your coding and problem-solving skills, you will contribute to the functional verification of the designs. You'll be responsible for the full life cycle of verification, from planning to writing tests to debugging, collect and closing coverage. You’ll also work with the software and system validation teams to come up with test plans and executing them in emulation platforms.

Basic qualifications

  • Strong academic and technical background in electrical engineering. At minimum, a Bachelor’s in EE is required, and a Masters is preferred.
  • ≥5 years’ experience verifying and validating complex SoC for Server, Storage, and Networking applications.
  • Knowledge of industry-standard simulators, revision control systems, and regression systems
  • Professional attitude with the ability to prioritize a dynamic list of multiple tasks, and work with minimal guidance and supervision.
  • Entrepreneurial, open-minded behavior and can-do attitude. Think and act fast with the customer in mind!
  • Authorized to work in the US and start immediately.

Required Experience

  • Experience with full verification lifecycle based on System Verilog/UVM/C/C++
  • Proven ability to mix and deploy hybrid techniques as in both directed and constrained random
  • Experience with different ways to bug and coverage hunting. Experience in formal methods is a plus.
  • Must be able to work independently to develop test-plans, and related test-sequences to generate stimuli and work collaboratively with RTL designers to debug failures.
  • Identify and write all types of coverage measures for stimulus and corner-cases. Close coverage to identify verification holes for high quality tape-out.

Preferred Experience

  • Working experience with scripting tools (Perl/Python) to automate verification infrastructure.
  • Prior experience using Verification IPs from 3rd party vendors with one or more communication protocols such as PCI-Express (Gen-3 and above), Ethernet, InfiniBand, DDR4/5, NVMe, USB, etc.
  • Working experience with scripting tools (Perl/Python) to automate verification infrastructure.
  • Experience with directed test based methodologies, cache verification and formal methods.


We know that creativity and innovation happen more often when teams include diverse ideas, backgrounds, and experiences, and we actively encourage everyone with relevant experience to apply, including people of color, LGBTQ+ and non-binary people, veterans, parents, and individuals with disabilities.
