Cerebras has developed a radically new chip and system to dramatically accelerate deep learning applications. Our system runs training and inference workloads orders of magnitude faster than contemporary machines, fundamentally changing the way ML researchers work and pursue AI innovation.

We are innovating at every level of the stack – from chip, to microcode, to power delivery and cooling, to new algorithms and network architectures at the cutting edge of ML research. Our fully-integrated system delivers unprecedented performance because it is built from the ground up for deep learning workloads.


In this exciting position, you will be entrusted with a wide range of design for test responsibilities. Achieving exceptional test coverage plays a crucial role in ensuring the seamless functioning of our wafer scale engine. You will leverage techniques like ATPG and BIST for logic, collaborating with third-party SERDES vendors on loopback and eye monitor methodologies. A well-rounded understanding of DFx is a prerequisite for this role. You will be expected to work on design, pattern generation, and post-silicon debugging, collaborating closely with the RTL, verification, and physical design teams as a valued member of our cohesive design team.

Skills & Qualifications

  • 5+ years of DFT experience
  • Strong knowledge of DFT techniques, including ATPG fault models and MBIST
  • Experience of getting very high coverage in both stuck at and transition faults
