Arpi, R&D Manager, Synopsys Armenia

Arpi
“My job brings new perspectives, new experiences, new adventures and new achievements into my life.”

Arpi is one of the first graduates of Synopsys Armenia Educational Department. Joining Synopsys with Leda Systems’ acquisition in 2004, Arpi has grown both as an engineer and as a manager. Today she manages a team of 30 managers and engineers. “What drives me at Synopsys is the opportunity to develop my team, to see my team members grow, and to witness the immediate results of my work. This becomes possible only due to the environment at Synopsys, the values and the priorities of the company, the positive attitude of the people, the trust that my team puts in me, the career prospects, and the fact that your work is appreciated.”

Arpi’s work entails close cooperation with people coming from multinational backgrounds, and this cultural diversity has proven to be a wonderful learning experience for her and made her the person she is. “I am so lucky to work with my amazing colleagues from abroad. They have guided me and taught me to become the professional I am today. Travelling with Synopsys has really opened my mind to new realities and made me grow as a manager and as a person equally.”

“What I envision for myself in the future is continue being a part of Synopsys, growing as a manager and helping my team members develop and rise to their fullest potential.”



Armen, R&D Engineer, Synopsys Armenia

Armen
“Synopsys has given me freedom of making my own decisions and it has helped bring forth and develop my leadership skills.”

Armen started his career at Synopsys in 2008 as an R&D Engineer, moving up to a senior position in a team of 50 people working with cutting edge technologies. “When you realize you are working on FinFET technologies that have never been used and tested before, you want to do your very best so the product exceeds all expectations. And since your company is already at the top of the game, all you need to do is move one step further, and that’s incredibly inspiring,” says Armen.

Apart from being a dedicated professional Armen is also a vivid and active spokesperson for a healthy lifestyle. Being among the top 3 ranking Synopsys Armenia volunteers, Armen has organized various events and activities such as bike rides, building a bike rack on Synopsys premises, coordinating squash trainings for Synopsys Armenia employees and organizing the first Synopsys Armenia Squash Tournament. Among one of these initiatives was also forming and leading the Synopsys Armenia team efforts at the Global Corporate Challenge, the world's largest corporate health initiative of its kind to promote physical activity and healthy lifestyle, and ranking second among 37,436 participating teams worldwide, walking over 38 million steps as a team.

When speaking about his career at Synopsys Armen mentions that Synopsys has helped rediscover and develop the leader in him, and as such he plans to further grow as an engineer, manage his own team in the near future and continue to inspire more and more employees to change the quality of their lives by leading a healthy and active lifestyle.



Arevik, R&D Engineer, Synopsys Armenia

Arevik
“Synopsys has given me a great sense of security, stability and an opportunity to follow my dreams.”

Arevik joined Synopsys Armenia through Leda Systems back in 2004. “When Leda was acquired by Synopsys, I felt a growing sense of trust, stability and security,” remembers Arevik. “I was proud to join a company that was one of the leaders in the EDA industry, and 10 years later, I still am.”

When talking about her tenure and achievements at Synopsys, Arevik highlights the very unique atmosphere and culture that is an integral part of her job. “The environment and the team spirit is one of the biggest reasons I have stayed with Synopsys for so long. And although I don’t know what tomorrow might bring, I know that without any doubt my colleagues and the relationships we forged are my biggest achievement here at Synopsys. As for the challenges, sometimes, when we work on big projects, we all need to put in extra efforts and work for longer hours, but even if so I feel happy if my extra efforts add to my skills and knowledge and I know that at the end of the day my work matters.”

Arevik describes herself as an engineer with an artist's soul. On par with engineering, art is just as important part of her life including hobbies such as drawing, knitting, travelling, hiking and dancing. Possessing such a diverse range of interests Arevik is very active in Synopsys Armenia’s social life. Her beautiful knitwear was among the many handmade items sold at the Synopsys Armenia Christmas Crafts Fair, contributing to the fundraising for disabled children from vulnerable families.



Anri, Sr Manager, Program Management and Software Integration, Synopsys Armenia


“Seeing the continuous achievements of our team work is what motivates me most at Synopsys Armenia.”

Anri joined Synopsys Armenia in December 2005, when Synopsys acquired HPL Technologies. In addition to his functional responsibilities, Anri is also managing projects cross functionally, driving for process and productivity improvements. “One of the things I love about working at Synopsys is that I am free to experiment and offer solutions to existing problems. Despite of being a large company, a single person's achievements and contributions are visible and appreciated.”

When discussing his achievements, Anri mentions his close collaboration with customers. “It is extremely rewarding to hear a happy customer say that they have been reaping the benefits of the changes implemented by the team. I am very motivated by such feedback.”

Anri works closely with other teams within the company, and having good interpersonal skills is vital. “Before Synopsys, I did not communicate much with other teams working on diverse products. Interacting with other teams on bringing the added value of cross product links, I have learned that real success is achieved based on teamwork and good relationship.”

“Today's world is at a constant flux. You need to work with different people and different companies around the globe if you want to stay cutting-edge, and I am grateful that we have such an opportunity in Synopsys Armenia."

 

Artak, R&D Manager, Synopsys Armenia

“I believe that Synopsys has created an environment, where people can learn and build careers.”

Artak joined Synopsys in 2004 following the acquisition of Leda. Just like many of his colleagues, Artak is a graduate of Synopsys Armenia Educational Department (SAED). He remembers his years there as constant learning and knowledge absorption. “Back then, all the smart and hard-working kids were studying at SAED and there was nothing that could stop our thirst for knowledge.”

Starting his career as an engineer, Artak has risen to the position of Senior Engineer and Manager. He attributes his success to four key factors: working hard, getting inspiration from small achievements, modesty, and good working relations with colleagues. “My primary goal is to provide these skills to my own team. I want them to appreciate these values not because they are important for me but because they are crucial for success.”

Artak says that Synopsys has given him an opportunity to have a sustainable life, work with cutting-edge technologies and be part of a global team with counterparts in Portugal, Canada, US, India, etc. However, what inspires him most is the enthusiasm and the strive for knowledge that he sees in his junior team members.



Gagik, QA Manager, Synopsys Armenia

Gagik
“It’s a great joy to witness your efforts bring tangible results and to feel both valuable and proud.”

Gagik joined Synopsys in 2008 as Junior QA Engineer after graduating from Yerevan State University (YSU) and the Synopsys Armenia Educational Department’s (SAED) VLSI Design joint program. He has since worked his way up to QA Manager in the Analog/Mixed-Signal Group at Synopsys Armenia.

“I am very attached to Synopsys, mainly due to its management and their mentality, values and working culture that I appreciate very much. I am also enthusiastic about my job as it has given me an opportunity to develop as a professional and work with cutting-edge technology.”

Apart from planning to earn a PHD degree Gagik has also suggested and designed a course on Software Testing, which he currently teaches to Master Degree students at SAED. “I want to expand our students’ awareness in this field and share my knowledge with them.”

Gagik also met his wife - a former SAED student and current employee - at Synopsys Armenia. They have been happily married for a year and a half now.

When talking about his years with Synopsys, Gagik admits that there have been ups and downs; however, the same enthusiasm and common vision for the future shared with his management have played a key role in his long tenure with the company. “I have stayed at Synopsys not only to see, but also to make this vision come true, and so far I haven’t regretted this decision.”
