About Marvell

At Marvell, we believe that infrastructure powers progress. That execution is as essential as innovation. That better collaboration builds better technology. Trusted by the world's leading technology companies for 25 years, we move, store, process and secure the world's data with semiconductor solutions designed for our customers' current needs and future ambitions. Through a process of deep collaboration and transparency, we're ultimately changing the way tomorrow's enterprise, cloud, automotive, and carrier architectures transform-for the better.

The data infrastructure that our customers build has never been more critical to our global economy. It's what's keeping the world connected, businesses running, and information flowing. If you're ready to excel, innovate, and truly enjoy your work, apply now for the position detailed below.

The OpportunityMarvell's Central Engineering works directly with the Broadband Analog group to design physical layer ICs for high-speed fiber optic data communication, such as Transimpedance Amplifiers (TIAs), and drivers for Silicon Photonic (SiPho) and discrete Electro-absorption Modulators (EAMs) and Mach-Zehnder Interferometer Modulators (MZMs). This group is the market leader in delivering TIAs and Drivers that support 10Gbps to 400Gbps systems. We address the bandwidth, capacity and power issues faced by cloud computing and mega data center networks. Our world class group leverages our core competencies in advanced circuit design to solve the world's ever-increasing desire to transmit more data for less power with fewer errors. We are continually first to market in Data Center, Metro and Long-Haul applications.
As a member of the design group, the candidate will be responsible for design and validation of FET and BiCMOS circuits for high-speed broadband ICs that serve these applications.

Job Responsibilities:

Marvell is seeking an RF and Analog Design Engineer to contribute to the development of multi-tens of GHz TIAs and Drivers. These optical interface chips are tightly coupled with our high-performance equalizers. The results of our innovative designs have made our TIAs and Drivers best in class for coherent long-haul and metro systems as well as PAM4 data center systems.

Candidate will be responsible for active circuit design. Design leading edge optical modulator driver circuits, primarily in Silicon Germanium (SiGe) BiCMOS (Bipolar Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor) technology, where circuit performance will need to transcend beyond industry leading products. Develop transmission line structures to enable higher performance than would normally be achievable. Design of hi-performance broadband analog circuits for optical front-end transmitters, including modulator and laser drivers. Design of various other analog circuits including linear regulators, AGC loop, current/voltage sensors, bandgaps etc. Work with various technologies including SiGe BiCMOS and CMOS.


  • MSc/PhD EE in the areas of design of high-performance analog/mixed-signal ICs with 2-3 years of experience.
  • Proven experience in IC design including chip tape-out AND lab evaluation of design (either during graduate studies or working in the industry). Solid experience in
  • Using EDA CAD tools
  • Performing Analog Custom Layout
  • Experience in measuring IC performance and debug of design to correlate simulations to measurements
  • Deep understanding of fundamental, including:
  • Detailed transistor level design
  • Device physics
  • Control/Feedback loop stability analysis
  • Direct project experience in at least one of the following areas a plus:
    • AGC loop design
    • High precision analog circuits (Including linear regulators, current sensors, bandgaps and DAC/ADC)
    • RF/High-Speed (10GHz+) issues
  • Experience in Package-System integration issues desired
  • Project experience in using different technologies. (SiGe BiCMOS is a plus)
  • A team-player
  • Strong communication, presentation and documentation skills.
