Cadence Design Systems GmbH in Munich, Germany ( www.cadence.com and
www.cadence.com/vcad) has a job opening in the VCAD organization for
an experienced software developer. It would be great to fill
the position with someone who has good Lisp experience.
Virtual CAD (VCAD) is a group within Cadence providing EDA (Electronic
Design Automation) related services. The job is with the
software development group within VCAD. Cadence's software products
are scripted with the SKILL language, a Lisp language with two
dialects: one Franz Lisp-like dialect, and one Scheme-like dialect.
The VCAD software group also uses Common Lisp where appropriate.
The position would be working in a small software group within an
IC design services group. Tasks are usually related to IC design
automation but not exclusively. Other current projects include release
management, resource scheduling/tracking, Object-system implementation,
regression/system/unit testing flow development.
We are looking for someone who either has experience programming in a
Lisp language, or is interested in learning Lisp in a production
environment, and is comfortable in several mutually unrelated
programming languages (eg, C, Smalltalk, and PostScript; or Java,
Prolog, and SPARC assembly language). Experience in Perl, Python,
C++, TCL, Java and Ample are useful but to a lesser extent.
Experience with UNIX applications such as mySQL and Postgres would
also be good. The platform is 99% UNIX based, including mostly Linux
and Solaris. Other things that would be nice, but are not required:
some theoretical familiarity with relational databases (eg, you took a
database class or read the textbook from one); Windows programming
experience; Oracle experience.
