ASIC/FPGA Designer

We are Tropic Square. Our mission is to make a TRuly OPen IC. We believe in this digital age, transparent and audible security solutions are necessary to ensure high standards. Our belief led to the creation of TROPIC01 - the secure chip with a revolutionary and transparent implementation.

To achieve our vision, it starts with the design. We will not hide our implementation details behind any NDA’s so we aim to be thorough when creating each functional block. 

Join us as an ASIC or FPGA designer to develop a secure chip that is rooted in transparency. We are looking to change the hardware security mindset, are you ready to take up this challenge?


What will your duties be?

  • Develop the specifications for functional blocks (functional and verification requirements)
  • Develop the RTL for specified block (In SystemVerilog or VHDL)
  • Perform Lint checks for CDC, DFT, etc.
  • Support the constraint development, synthesis, and logic equivalency checks
  • Silicon bring up, validation, and debugging
  • Scripting with Python, TCL and Unix shell scripts
  • Report progress to the team leader on a regular basis


What do we need from you?

  • 3+ years ASIC/FPGA experience
  • SystemVerilog or VHDL experience
  • Verification experience (or the willingness to learn)
  • Applied cryptography and security experience is welcomed
  • Experience with open source development is welcomed
  • A growth mindset and a high level of autonomy


What do we offer in return?

  • A chance to work on a unique project with an agile team focused on developing cutting-edge solutions for secure embedded electronics
  • Learn from the best professionals in the field
  • Flexible working hours as well as the possibility of working from home
  • Support for a high level of freedom and your further growth
  • Financial stability - we are backed by SatoshiLabs and a foreign investor
  • Transparency and Honesty are our best policies
