  • Creating high-speed signal and image processing algorithms

This role will suit a bright engineer with an excellent technical degree from a world-leading university and a significant level of commercial experience including:

  • Strong knowledge of VHDL / Verilog / SystemVerilog / Quartus / Qsys / NIOS
  • Solid experience in C and C++ embedded systems
  • Significant experience debugging and validating embedded solutions
  • Good understanding of a variety of version control and bug-reporting systems
  • Awareness of latest FPGA technologies including SoC and high speed digital communications features
  • Familiarity with designing Control Systems, Signal Processing algorithms and Datapath Control

In addition to a competitive salary, the role offers an attractive benefits package. Excellent prospects await the right candidate in a permanent role, with potential to progress to design-architect level roles.
