Firmware Engineer (25812)

£40k to £60k + top benefits

Video algorithms running in FPGAs, some home working

An outstanding opportunity in video algorithm development right through to debugging on an FPGA. You will need to be a bright individual able to handle the mathematics behind some of their algorithms. But also very hands-on in debugging at the hardware level having transposed the design to an FPGA.

As a Firmware Engineer to gain your place in this well respected high-tech company you must have:

  • An excellent academic background with a 2.1 or 1st from a well-ranked university in a technical subject (computer science, maths, engineering, physics)
  • Thorough knowledge of C and/or C++
  • Exposure to the design and programming of FPGAs
  • Strong mathematical skills suitable for algorithm development
  • Knowledge of scripting (e.g. Python)
  • An interest in video technology

Combine the above with the following desirables for the perfect match:

  • An understanding of signal processing
  • Mathematical modelling of DSP systems in C++

This is an excellent opportunity to work in a company created by engineers who hire, inspire and develop the very best people in the industry. This role has the diversity of one phase working at low level code, whilst your next phase could be modelling a highly complex algorithm.

Keywords: C, C++, embedded, SoC development, firmware, FPGA, DSP, modelling, Cambridge
