Position Description and Responsibilities

Silvaco is looking for a software engineer to join our TCAD team in one of the company’s offices in Europe. Working at the very center of the TCAD group, you would be working on Etching and Deposition algorithm. As a Software Developer, you will help Silvaco develop and deliver high quality products and services.

As a member of the TCAD group, you will design, implement, evaluate, and improve numerical methods, physical models and simulation methodologies. The successful candidate will be an experienced software engineer with expertise in Etching and Deposition algorithm, whereby software development experience is at least as good as the knowledge of using software packages for simulating these kinds of problems. Since solving Etching and Deposition simulation problems often goes along with challenges in creating good simulation meshes, experience in that area will be very beneficial.

Responsibilities include:

  • Develop, support, test and maintain existing simulation software.
  • Identify and understand limitations of existing software components.
  • Develop new features and provide solutions to existing problems.
  • Communicate complex ideas and testing results effectively; both orally and written.

  • A strong entrepreneurial and can-do mindset, undaunted by shifting priorities, uncertainty, and a “figuring it out as we go” environment.

Desirable Qualifications

  • PhD in Meshing, Physics, Engineering, or related field.
  • Experience with unstructured meshing in 3D (surface meshing, volume meshing).
  • Experience with implicit mesh-based surface/volume evolution.
  • Very advanced C++ coding skills (C++17 preferable).
  • Linear Algebra
  • Extensive experience in software design.
  • Experience in software development within teams (code sharing).
