DTIP 2015 – April 27–30, 2015 – Montpellier, France

DTIP A special session on « Co-design for MEMS based Smart Systems » is organized by Gerold Schröpfer from Coventor, France.

DTIP is a symposium including two main Conferences: the CAD, Design and Test Conference devoted to the development of Computer-Aided Design (CAD) tools and design methodologies for MEMS and MOEMS, and the Microfabrication, Integration and Packaging Conference dedicated to the development of integration technologies and packaging for MEMS and MOEMS. Both conferences share common plenary talks including invited talks, panels and special sessions to allow close interaction between both communities. http://www.dtip-mems.org

A Lego Block Approach to MEMS Design

The Smart Systems Integration conference took place in Copenhagen on March 10-12, 2015. We were invited to join a panel discussion with the title “Towards a “Lego block principle” for heterogonous systems design including MEMS and electronics –Choose and put together-fit”. The capital of Denmark felt like the natural place to discuss a “Lego block principle” and so I happily accepted to represent Coventor in the discussion. read more…

Engineering Software Quality Assurance Team Lead – Waltham, MA

Engineering Software Quality Assurance Team Lead – Waltham, MA

We are seeking a BS- or MS-level engineer with a strong interest in 3D modeling and simulation to lead a quality assurance team responsible for testing our advanced semiconductor virtual fabrication software. You will be responsible for coordinating the daily activities of our quality assurance team, which is embedded in a collaborative software development team that is following the Scrum development process. Through continuous engagement with developers, organizing test plans for new features and maintaining regression test suites, you will play a critical role in helping us deliver quality software for both the Windows and Linux platforms. This is an engineering position, not a managerial role, where your strong engineering knowledge will enable you to directly test the software in order to provide effective supervision of your team and valuable input to our software development team. Your compensation will be commensurate with your education and experience.

This regular, full-time position is located in our office in Waltham, MA. Coventor offers comprehensive benefits and is an EEO/AA Employer.

  • Supervise the daily activities of a team of software quality assurance engineers
  • Digest software specifications and organize plans for systematically testing new engineering functionality
  • Develop, execute and maintain verification test cases for both automatic and manual regression test suites
  • Understand the functionality of our semiconductor virtual fabrication environment
  • Actively participate in our Scrum-based agile development process
  • Submit defect reports and enhancement requests
  • Collaborate with software developers to isolate defects
  • Interact with the applications support team to define realistic test cases
  • Create examples and draft documentation for use in product documentation and marketing collateral

Required Qualifications

  • BS or MS in Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering or a related discipline
  • At least 5 years of work experience as a quality assurance engineer of 3D engineering software such as CAD, CAE or TCAD tools
  • Detail oriented individual who enjoys systematically exploring software
  • Team oriented personality with excellent interpersonal skills
  • Excellent English communication skills (verbal and written)
  • Proficiency with Windows and/or Linux operating systems
  • Scripting skills in Python, MATLAB, or similar scripting language
