We are seeking candidates with all levels of skill and experience, from
BSEE to experienced.

We currently have several positions to fill in our group. We will match
your experience, skills and interests with the tasks in our group.

Our group is responsible for the electrical design and implementation of
system signals, and we are responsible for providing information to the
chip designers about the delays in all of the signals between the chips
in the system. Also, we are responsible for the design, layout and
specification files to the chip design automation system of vlsi driver
and receiver circuits in support of the system performance requirements.

We expect that you will have at least a BSEE with a solid understanding
of the usual undergraduate course work in the time-domain behavior of
transmission lines, the switching behavior of FET's, standard CMOS
digital interface circuit designs, and a working knowledge of a circuit
simulator, such as spice. Of course, experience or advanced coursework
you have with the tasks we need to accomplish is very helpfull. We also
expect that you can function well as part of a group of people working
together for a common goal.

Our team is flexible with our work responsibilities, we help each other
out, we work together without any hidden agendas or territory disputes.
We are a results oriented group, and we continually evaluate ourselves
searching for ways to improve our operation. We are successfull,
influential and respected by our peers outside of our team. We have
designed, implemented and are shipping low-cost systems,
cost-performance systems, and very high performance systems - on
schedule with no hardware defects.

The AS/400, our product, is the most popular business computer in the
world, with a large base of loyal customers, many partners who add
market value to our product and healthy margins for our business. We
have aggressive growth plans for our product with the investments in
resources to implement those plans.

Rochester is an affordable, comfortable mid-sized city in the upper
Midwest. Our economy has been growing steadily for at least the last
decade, driven by the strong regional, national and international
business of the Mayo Clinic and the consistent success of the AS/400
Division of IBM. Money magazine has consistently rated Rochester as a
very liveable city. We have good schools, and a community that invests
in itself. We have abundant opportunities for outdoor and indoor
recreation and leisure time activities, both here in town, in the
surrounding area and in the nearby Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St
Paul.
