Uhnder (http://www.uhnder.com) has developed the world’s first automotive digital Radar-on-Chip (RoC). Sensors based on Uhnder’s Digital Coded Modulation (DCM) technology achieve new and unprecedented levels of performance for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving solutions. Founded in 2015, Uhnder’s Silicon development engineering operations are in Austin, Texas, US and Chennai, TN India.

Uhnder’s approach and technology is transforming the automotive industry by changing the way radars work, with significant improvements in performance and the additional benefits of smaller size and lower power and cost. 

Uhnder’s Verification Team is responsible for the verification of IP, Modules, Sub-Systems, System-on-Chip (SoC) (Functional Verification (RTL/PARTL/WRTL); Gate Level Simulation/Verification (GLS) and all aspects of Pre-Silicon Verification); Application & Use Case Verification (in terms of performance, throughput, latency, bandwidth and system use cases), Functional Vector Generation as well as Silicon Bring-up.


As a member of the Verification team, one will/can participate, in all the above activities, based on the stage of the design and to achieve a successful one-pass silicon. Uhnder is currently looking to add Verification Engineers with various levels of experience: 10+ years for Senior, 5-10 years for Mid-Level, & 2-5 years for Junior Levels as well as New College Grad (NCG). Opportunities exist in Austin (Uhnder worldwide HQ) & Chennai and remote work from other sites (such as Benguluru & Dallas) is possible
