Imagine what you could do here at Apple? Together we could help craft the next generation of the world's finest devices! New ideas have a way of becoming extraordinary products, services, and customer experiences very quickly. Bring passion and dedication to your career, and there's no telling what you could accomplish. As a member of the layout team, you will be working on the latest technology nodes to create extraordinary custom analog designs. This is a fast-paced work environment with endless learning opportunities working on a multi-disciplinary team with members of design, integration, CAD and technology engineering. The right candidate will thrive in that type of environment. You will work with us from Apple's headquarters in Cupertino, California. It's one of the most exciting aspects of the job! Dynamic, smart people and inspiring, innovative technologies are the norm here. Will you help us design the next generation of revolutionary Apple products? Do you have the following qualifications or experience? We'd like to hear from you.

Key Qualifications

  • Typically requires proven experience in analog/mixed-signal layout design of deep sub-micron CMOS circuits.
  • Experience implementing analog layouts to achieve tight matching, low noise, and low power consumption. Layouts may include analog blocks, resistors, capacitors, pad IOs, ESD structures, etc.
  • High level of proficiency in custom and standard cell based floor-planning and hierarchical layout assembly.
  • Will ideally understand techniques for handling IR drop, RC delay, electro-migration, self-heating and coupling capacitance.
  • Should be able to recognize failure prone circuit and layout structures, have experience with analog and DFM best practices, and proactively work with circuit designer to identify the best approach to solving problems.
  • High level of proficiency in interpretation of CALIBRE DRC, ERC, LVS, etc. reports.
  • Knowledge of MENTOR GRAPHICS or CADENCE layout tools.
  • Scripting skills in PERL or SKILL are considered a plus, but not required.
  • Excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to work with multi-functional teams.


As part of the Analog layout team we are responsible to deliver fully-verified, clean layout, this includes the following:

Designing complex layout for mixed signal, and analog circuits in deep sub-micron CMOS technologies.

Reviewing and analyzing floorplans and complex circuits with circuit designers.

We collaborate with circuit design teams to plan/schedule work and adjust any layout tradeoffs as needed.

Interpreting LVS, DRC and ERC reports to find the fastest way to complete layout.

Exceed engineering specifications and expectations by working closely with the circuit design team.

We utilize advanced CAD tools and mask design knowledge to deliver an accurate and robust layout that meets desired matching performance, area and power requirements.
