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 silicon physical design engineers to join our team as we create best-in-class silicon for high-performance and sustainable GenAI. Successful candidates for these roles will be responsible for delivering 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:

  • Contribute to MatX’s silicon design and physical design methodology with a scalable solution across blocks, subsystems, fullchip designs from RTL to GDS
  • Own entire subsystem or subsets and/or chip-level physical design deliverables including but not limited to: floor-planning, placement, clock insertion, routing, optimizations, timing closure analysis, physical verification closure, electrical analysis, etc.
  • Plan and drive intermediate and sign-off reviews as well as execution progress reporting based on key PPA metrics-tracking towards various silicon milestones including design freeze and tapeout
  • Work closely with the design, DFT and other physical design co-owners of the subsystem/block in question and deliver best-in-class performance-power-area results
  • Work with design services partners and other critical third-party vendors and partners on planning and executing block-level and chip-level closure for blocks you own and oversee


  • RTL-to-silicon experience in driving physical design for subsystems and/or top-level functions with ASICs and SOCs from early RTL design and netlist to production silicon 
  • Production-proven experience with Floorplanning, place and route, clock tree insertion and analysis, timing analysis, physical verification, electrical sign-off and related areas to produce tapeout ready GDS for large physical blocks and/or top-level
  • Project experience in collaborating with design, verification and DFT teams to structure and partition the design optimally for PPA and sign-off 
  • Experience in working with a third-party design services partner and taking subsystems and/or top-level from initial floor plan to sign-off and tapeout is a plus

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