Team Overview

We believe everyone should be able to participate and thrive in the economy. We believe bitcoin plays an essential role in the future of payments and the world's economy. We believe that the status quo of bitcoin mining does not serve the mission of the bitcoin ecosystem. So we're building a bitcoin mining rig powered by a Block designed ASIC. With our mining rig, we can address many issues such as the concentration of hardware supply in certain countries and incompatibility with clean energy sources.

You will be part of the custom silicon team in Block that develops bitcoin mining ASIC. In this role you will work closely with the foundry, design, and production test team to analyze wafer data, and to make recommendations for design and process tuning.

Responsibilities of the Role

Track and analyze production wafer data

Work with foundry to identify potential device parameter changes to enable efficiency low-voltage operation

Work closely with circuit designers to determine what device improvement could improve circuit performance

Work with test engineers to analyze and validate production wafer data

Contribute to binning strategy to maximize parametric yield
