What you will do

For more than 25 years, imec has been offering a prototype and production service to worldwide companies. Imec helps the customers to design their integrated circuits (chips) and bring them from the prototype to the production phase. Imec provides specialized technical advice and services on design level, assembly and test. Our list of customers includes more than 900 universities and companies worldwide. For the further extension of these imec services, we are looking for a highly motivated engineer.
Imec IC-link, as part of imec, has an extensive industrial experience, contacts with leading industrial foundries, and long-standing relationships with all the main EDA tool vendors and IP providers. This unit supports worldwide customers in the layout, prototype, fabrication and test of advanced electronic products.
As ASIC (Application Specific Integrated Circuit) Project Architect within imec IC-link, you will be in direct contact with our customers for future projects. Before project initiation, you will function as the key technical contact providing support to the customer to align their requirements to the project deliverables. You will assist our internal business development managers to win the project and initiate the project launch. Your closure will kick off the project with the project charter which you have created.
Winning a project will require you to assess the requirements and define for each project the most efficient flow and cost matching the planning and customer expectations. You will make a quote and for this you will be in close collaboration with several service domains (Tape-out, Manufacturing, Packaging, Test ...) within imec IC-link. You will report all leads and probabilities to your group leader.
