Job Description

MatX is on a mission to be the compute platform for AGI. We are developing vertically integrated full-stack solutions from silicon to systems including hardware and software to train and run the largest ML workloads for AGI. MatX is seeking a Silicon Design-For-Test (DFT) lead to join our team as we create best-in-class silicon for high-performance and sustainable GenAI. The successful candidate for this role will be responsible for leading the delivery of built-in test functions for performant and functionally accurate silicon for MatX products across compute, memory management. High-speed connectivity and other key technologies in leading-edge process nodes.

Responsibilities include:

  • Own MatX’s DFT methodology and collaborate on the silicon design and physical design methodology with a scalable solution across blocks, subsystems, fullchip designs from RTL to GDS.
  • Architect the DFT solution including memory testability and repair, logic test for coverage of structural and at-speed testability for very large and complex silicon using industry-leading DFT tools and flows
  • Select top-level DFT control structures to drive efficient block and subsystem level DFT implementation optimizing for DFT cost and resulting coverage
  • Plan and drive intermediate and sign-off reviews as well as execution progress reporting based on key metrics-tracking towards various silicon milestones including design freeze and tapeout
  • Work closely with the design, verification and physical design co-owners of the subsystem/block and top-level on DFT verification and physical design considerations to deliver best-in-class performance-power-area results
  • Leading design services partners and other critical third-party vendors and partners on planning and executing block-level and chip-level DFT
  • Working with Operations, foundry and test partners to bring up test program on silicon and meeting all coverage goals on silicon towards production and NPI


  • Architecture-to-production experience in driving DFT strategy and execution on large and complex ASICs and SOCs to production silicon 
  • Production-proven experience with deploying DFT at-scale for large and high-performance ASICs and SOCs in both pre0-silicon implementation and post-silicon test program completion for NPI
  • Project experience in collaborating with design, verification and physical design teams to structure and partition the design optimally for PPA and sign-off 
  • Experience in working with a third-party design services partners to deliver tapeout-ready designs with DFT 
  • Experience with test engineering partners and taking test programs from bring up to volume production 
  • Experience with FA (Failure Analysis) and debugging failures on silicon with design and verification teams

Compensation: The US base salary for this full-time position is $120,000 - $400,000 + equity + benefits
