The Future: EDA Hiring faces Headwinds

Thursday, December 14th, 2017

 


The leading EDA recruitment guru, Mark Gilbert,
regularly sends out info about job openings to his extensive contact list. In a recent such email, I took the time to read the job descriptions in detail and was amazed. These openings are so technical and so unique, I had to call Mark.

“These job requirements are so specific,” I said when he picked up, “surely there can’t be more than a few dozen people who fill the bill. How do you ever find them?”

Mark laughed: “You’re right. There are so few matches for these companies, given their job requirements and the correct combination of skills they’re looking for. For me to fill one position, I can look at several thousand resumes. And each resume is incredibly comprehensive.

“But I’m looking for the one guy that has this and that skill, but not the other. Yet there are very few people who have those qualifications.”

Solido’s Recipe: Platform, Patents, Customers, Poise

Thursday, August 31st, 2017

 


Amit Gupta is the quintessential entrepreneur in EDA.
Even as he was graduating with degrees in EE and CS from University of Saskatchewan, he was co-founding Analog Design Automation, targeted at those who need tools to automate analog chip design. That was in 1999. The company was sold to Synopsys in 2004, and then Gupta co-founded Solido Design Automation in 2005.

This week, I had a chance to speak at length with Amit Gupta. The last time we conversed, it was at the January 2017 Kaufman Award dinner for Dr. Andres Strojwas in San Jose. That evening, Gupta was enthused about Solido’s access to high-quality engineering talent in Canada, and argued that the cost of living and quality of life in Saskatoon, where Solido is headquartered, more than compensate for any sense that Silicon Valley is the epicenter of the industry. His enthusiasm has only grown since that time.

Job Openings: Can EDA Predict the Future

Thursday, March 9th, 2017

 


This is a simple post with just two messages
. First, EDA is hiring. All over the globe. Mentor Graphics lists over 200 openings, Cadence has almost 300 openings, and Synopsys has a staggering 900+ openings worldwide.

Of course, EDACafe’s own Mark Gilbert could have told you this. It wasn’t necessary to scour the websites of the Big Three in EDA to learn about the many jobs currently available in the industry, most for software developers, not surprisingly.

Mark Gilbert: White coat, White hat, Big fish

Thursday, June 30th, 2016

 


Exuberance and Optimism:
the only two words required to describe EDA-Careers’ Mark Gilbert – even after 20 years in the trenches sorting out the who what and where of just about everybody in the EDA industry. Yes, he self-identifies as the fun guy in the white suit, seen hither and yon wherever the EDA Nation chooses to confab, but in reality he’s the good guy in the white hat who’s going to tell it to you straight, about your career and your goals.

Also by his own description, Mark Gilbert is “the big fish in a little pond” who serves as the leading head hunter and career counselor extraordinaire of EDA.

I was lucky enough to speak with Gilbert by phone this week. As he and I were both on the East Coast, coordinating the hour of the call was easy. Our conversation started with the usual query: How did you get started in this business?
