Senior Integrated Circuit Layout Engineer

ONSITE FULL_TIME MID_LEVEL $126,000 to $171,000
At Boeing, we innovate and collaborate to make the world a better place. From the seabed to outer space, you can contribute to work that matters with a company where diversity, equity and inclusion are shared values. We’re committed to fostering an environment for every teammate that’s welcoming, respectful and inclusive, with great opportunity for professional growth. Find your future with us.

Within BR&T, Boeing’s Solid State Electronics Development organization (SSED) performs microelectronics technology development for aerospace systems. SSED develops digital, analog, and RF Systems on Chip (SoCs) for radar, navigation, electronic warfare, communications, processing, and other electronic functions. These systems are used on Boeing airborne, terrestrial, and satellite platforms. Designs are implemented with state-of-the-art semiconductor process technologies including CMOS, GaAs, GaN, and SiGe. SSED uses external wafer fabrication services but executes the whole design flow in-house (architecture definition, circuit design, RTL, synthesis, physical layout, verification, packaging and testing). SSED owns numerous microelectronics projects, funded both by internal Boeing programs and external U.S. Government Science and Technology (S&T) customers. SSED’s large staff of microelectronics engineers conducts research and designs microelectronics hardware in support of these projects.

We are seeking a Senior Integrated Circuit Layout Engineer to be based out of Tukwila, WA. This person will need to understand deep sub-micron CMOS circuits. As well as have experience implementing analog layouts to achieve tight matching, low noise, and low power consumption. Layouts may include analog or digital blocks, resistors, and capacitors, pad IOs, ESD structures, SRAM leaf cells, etc.

Boeing Research & Technology (BR&T): Boeing's global research and development team creating and implementing innovative technologies that make the impossible possible and enable the future of aerospace. We are engineers and technicians, skilled scientists and bold innovators: join us and put your passion, determination, and skills to work building the future! #TheFutureIsBuiltHere #ChangeTheWorld
