Job Description

Company Description

Founded in 2018, Lumotive is a leader in solid-state, 3D-sensing systems, developing high-performance solutions for consumer electronics, industrial automation, robotics and automotive applications. The Seattle-based company’s LiDAR solutions leverage revolutionary beam-steering technology based on patented Liquid Crystal Metasurfaces™ to deliver an unprecedented combination of high performance (as measured by range, resolution and frame rate) and readiness for mass adoption (measured by cost, reliability, and size). Lumotive’s beam-steering chips enable this unique combination because they are optically large, enabling high performance, and are manufactured with mature semiconductor processes, enabling low cost and high reliability. Lumotive’s investors include Bill Gates and Quan Funds. For more information, go to or to Twitter @LumotiveLidar.

Job Description

Lumotive is seeking a Senior Analog Layout Engineer to develop custom layout of LCM Beam Steering Mixed signal ASIC macros. The ideal candidate will lead all aspects of analog custom layout by collaborating with analog design team. The candidate will be responsible for all mixed signal layout of macros and interaction with P&R team to get analog macro integrated into overall digital P&R flow. The position requires a seasoned and self-motivated hands-on layout designer with a thorough, detail-oriented approach to layout, who thrives in a multi-disciplinary and fast-paced environment.

Roles & Responsibilities:

  • Proven experience in layout design of advance display drivers and other analog and mixed signal macros in High voltage process technology.
  • Highly experienced in implementing analog layouts for very high-count data converters, analog blocks, resistors, pad IO, ESD structures to achieve tight matching, low noise, and area optimized layout.
  • High level of proficiency in planning and implementing block-level floorplan, power distribution network, clock and signal routing, analog and mixed signal transistor level layout.
  • Extensive experience in DRC, LVS and other physical verification tools from leading vendors.
  • Excellent understanding of LVS, DRC and ERC reports to address issues and converge fast on layout closure.
