SpaceX was founded under the belief that a future where humanity is out exploring the stars is fundamentally more exciting than one where we are not. Today SpaceX is actively developing the technologies to make this possible, with the ultimate goal of enabling human life on Mars. SR. DIGITAL ASIC/FPGA VALIDATION ENGINEER (SILICON ENGINEERING) As a member of our multifaceted ASIC team, you will have the rare and phenomenal opportunity to craft upcoming SOCs that will enable our Starlink chips. These chips help connect, enable, and empower humanity every single day with performance that far surpasses that of traditional satellite internet and ground infrastructure limitations. Starlink delivers high-speed, low latency broadband internet to locations where access has been unreliable, expensive, or completely unavailable. In this critical role, you will be actively working on validating SoCs starting from the point when the first samples arrive from the fab. You will be performing initial bring-up of the SoC, testing core functionality, characterizing electrical and power utilization and paving the path for other teams, such as flight software, to cleanly integrate the SoC into the overall Starlink system. As part of these efforts, you will be working with a variety of high-speed interfaces, both industry standard and proprietary. You will also be responsible for developing and maintaining software that is needed for these validation efforts. RESPONSIBILITIES:
