MaxLinear is seeking a Mixed-Signal Design Leader to join our team. You will be leading and mentoring a team of highly capable and motivated mixed-signal designers with proven product experience. The team is responsible for ADCs and DACs on some of the fastest, highest performance communications systems ICs in the world in optical, wireless, and home networks. These chips combine a wide range of engineering expertise in a single design and require close collaboration and creative problem-solving across traditional boundaries. In this role, you will focus on:

  • Review DSP/SoC architecture design guides and understand various sub-systems, DSP algorithms, rationales for different designs
  • Guide the team in developing the architecture, definition, and design of challenging mixed signal IPs requiring creativity and cross-functional innovation
  • Work closely with Marketing, Communication Systems, Digital ASIC and RF Systems to take designs from product definition through tape-out, characterization, and release to high-volume production
  • Knowledge of technical leadership of a design across multiple global design sites when necessary
  • Management experience is a plus

Qualifications

  • Mixed-signal design expert with extensive experience in high speed CMOS ADCs and DACs for wireless or wireline communications
  • Taking IC products from architecture through design to volume production
  • Ability to make complex decisions on design tradeoffs to achieve performance, power, die size, and schedule targets
  • Solid understanding of digital/mixed signal verification flows and SOC integration challenges
  • Excellent communication skills and ability to excel and provide technical leadership in a fast-paced environment
  • BS in Electrical Engineering or related + 15 years of experience, or MS + 12 years of experience, or Ph.D. + 8 years of experience

Company Overview

MaxLinear is a global, New York Stock Exchange-traded company (NYSE: MXL) where the entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well. We are a fabless system-on-chip product company, striving to improve the world's communication networks for everyone through our highly integrated radio-frequency (RF), analog, digital, and mixed-signal semiconductor solutions for access and connectivity, wired and wireless infrastructure, and industrial and multi-market applications.

We hire the best people in the industry and engage them in some of the most exciting opportunities that connect the world we live in today. Our growth has come from innovative, bold approaches to solving some of the world's most challenging communication technology problems in the most efficient and effective manner.

MaxLinear began by developing the world's first high-performance TV tuner chip using standard CMOS process technology. Others said we couldn't achieve the extremely high-performance requirements using CMOS, but we proved them wrong and achieved enduring global market leadership with our designs. Since then, we've developed a full line of products that drive 4G and 5G infrastructure; enable data center, metro and long-haul optical interconnects; bring 10Gbit to the home; power the IoT revolution; and enable robust and reliable communication in harsh industrial environments. Over the years, we've expanded through organic growth and through several acquisitions that have perfectly complemented our existing portfolio and enabled us to deliver complete end-to-end solutions in our target markets. One such example was the acquisition of Intel's Home Gateway Platform Division that added Wi-Fi, Ethernet, and Broadband Gateway Processor SoC technology to our connected home portfolio creating a complete and scalable platform of connectivity and access solutions to fully address our customers' needs.

Our headquarters are in Carlsbad, near San Diego, California. We also have major design centers in Irvine and San Jose, California; Vancouver, Canada; Valencia, Spain; Bangalore, India; Villach, Austria; Munich, Germany; Israel; and Singapore.

We have approximately 1,500 employees, a substantial majority of whom have engineering degrees and include masters and Ph.D. graduates from many of the premiere universities around the world. Our employees thrive on innovation, outstanding execution, outside-the-box thinking, nimbleness, and collaboration. Together, we form a high-energy business team that is focused on building the best and most innovative products on the market.
