About the Role

In this role you would be working on software development work, that will be mainly working within complex, multi-thread, multi-processor architectures, and audio frameworks to integrate DSP algorithms and control structures. Products that will be developed are OEM automotive amplifiers and other similar audio processing products.  Products typically consist of the main microcontroller for configuration, communication, and control and a DSP processor for audio processing.

Your Team

This role does not have any direct reports. However, providing technical leadership and mentoring to less experienced engineers and interns/co-ops is expected.


What You Will Do

  • You would be responsible for developing production-ready software following a defined software development process. 
  • Analyze specifications, develop unit designs, develop unit test plans, integrate of test plans and verify functionality.
  • Develop, integrate, Port, and Optimize audio DSP algorithms for different DSPs in the Audio Amplifier product line.
  • Co-develop and/or work within complex, multi-thread, multi-processor architectures, and audio frameworks to integrate DSP algorithms and control structures.
  • Analyze existing external and internal object-oriented, embedded software to add features, make modifications, and/or port to different platforms, and DSPs.
  • Monitor and evaluate new software technologies suitable for applications in embedded systems.
    Analyze customer and internal requirements and specifications and translates these into software requirements, SW designs and implement/code and test for defined Quality and performance levels.
