    • Basic knowledge of Design Rules Check (DRC) and Design for Manufacturing (DFM)
    • Experience with IC and/or PCB Netlist generation, management and automation, including scripting
    • Knowledge of high-speed layout constraints (Crosstalk mitigation, differential pairs, EMI/RFI, PCB/Package resonance)
    • Circuit-level and system-level simulation capabilities
    • Numerical computing (MATLAB, Octave or alternative object-oriented programming Python)
    • Ability to independently conduct electrical measurements
    • Ability to write test plans, standard operating procedures (SOPs) and properly document design and test results is a plus

    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, designing highly integrated, radio-frequency, and mixed-signal Communications ICs for broadband and infrastructure applications.

    We hire the best people in the world and engage them in some of the most exciting opportunities in our broadband and infrastructure markets. Our growth has come from innovative, bold approaches to solving some of the world’s most challenging communication technology problems.

    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 for satellite communications, cable modems, and terrestrial TV; diversified into high speed products addressing Datacom applications such as 400 Gbps fiber-optic interconnect chips for high-speed networks; and MoCA technology for home networking.

    Our headquarters is in Carlsbad, near San Diego, California. We also have major design centers in Irvine and San Jose, CA; in Vancouver, Canada; in Valencia, Spain; and in Bangalore, India.

    We have approximately 800 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 engineers 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 great products.
