Job Description:

At GenapSys we are working to power the world of healthcare and diagnostics with advanced DNA sequencing technology. Our sequencing instrument platform leverages a proprietary electrical microfluidic sequencing chip with a scalable number of detectors, enabling a wide range of applications including targeted sequencing in oncology, pharmacogenomics, and genome-wide sequencing in microbiology and others. We believe in a world where every researcher has a compact, scalable, and affordable sequencer in their own lab, empowering the democratization of genetic sequencing. Our novel sequencing method is revolutionizing genomics discovery, biomedical research, healthcare, diagnostics, agriculture, and a variety of other fields.

About the Role:

The Analog/Mixed-Signal IC Design Engineer will work on the analog/mixed-signal circuits for Genapsys next-generation DNA sequencing chips. This position will support the architecture, design, and validation of our next generation of micro-array CMOS chips and will actively take part in scaling this key component of our sequencing platform to the next level of integration.

  • Experience designing analog/mixed-signal IPs such as ADC, DAC, or PLL
  • Experience with advanced CMOS process (65nm and below)
  • Experience with Cadence design environment
  • Experience with developing Verilog-A models for mixed-mode verification
  • Successful track record in delivering analog/mixed-signal IPs with 1st-time success while meeting tight schedules
  • Results-driven, detail-oriented and methodical
  • Ability to work collaboratively with people across multiple functional areas
  • Excellent communication and documentation skills are a must

Desired Qualifications:

  • Experience designing CMOS image sensors, especially low-noise analog front end
  • Experience in analog top-level chip assembly and top-level mixed-mode verification
  • Knowledge of Verilog RTL and Digital IC design flow

Desired Qualities:

  • Adaptable to fast-paced, dynamic work environments and shifting demands.
  • Highly collaborative, team-oriented, and an effective communicator
  • Scrappy, willing to pitch in where needed.
  • Passion for making a difference in the world.
