digital signal processing
We are not looking for embedded software developers or firmware developers. Here is a list of prescreen questions:
- Have you developed any C++ program over the last year?
- Have you developed any deadline-based, real-time applications within the last 2 years?
- Have you ever implemented software optimization for real-time performance?
- Have you targeted any software applications for Linux over the past 5 years?
- In the last 2 years have you developed a multi-thread application using the POSIX API?
- Have you ever implemented a parallel algorithm?
- Do you have experience with high performance computing?
The Signal Process Technology group focus is on state-of-the-art processing technologies and distributed high performance computing architectures that are used to build next-generation Radar Signal Processing applications.
The Software Signal Processing Engineer position responsibilities include working within Linux, Unix and Real Time Operating System developing C/C++ implementation of signal processing algorithms and time critical control functions involved in and direct control of sensor systems. This position will include working closely with Software Architects and Principal Systems, Hardware, and Software engineers to interpret requirements and correctly implement these requirements in software.
