Wireless Embedded Software Engineer

Santa Clara Valley (Cupertino), California, United States


Weekly Hours: 40
Role Number:200001277
Do you have a passion for crafting entirely new solutions? Do you love building without precedent? As part of our Process Engineering group, you’ll take imaginative and revolutionary ideas and determine how to turn them into reality. You and your team will apply engineering fundamentals and start from scratch if need be. A project might call for designing new equipment, developing new materials, or even building a new factory to bring a visionary idea to the real world. Your efforts will be groundbreaking, often literally. Join us, and you’ll help design the tools that allow us to bring customers experiences they’ve never before imagined.

Key Qualifications

  • Experience with memory constrained Real Time Operating Systems (RTOS) and concurrent programming.
  • Working knowledge of computer architecture with particular emphasis on the HW/SW interfaces of high speed communication or storage subsystems.
  • Experience with silicon prototyping, emulation systems, and virtual platforms.
  • Deep understanding of debugging embedded software systems. Familiarity with UARTs JTAG, and oscilloscopes.
  • Proven experience with wireless communication principles, protocols and IOT in the area of MAC , PHY and/or RF (3GPP, 802.11 or Bluetooth).
  • Unix/Linux kernel development and mainstream OS application level
  • development experience.


In this highly visible role, you will be at the center of the embedded firmware effort within a silicon design group responsible for crafting and productizing state-of-the-art wireless SOCs. Core Responsibilities: • Specify, design, and implement (C/C++) the firmware architecture of a state-ofthe- art mobile wireless communications system. • Assist in the development of pre-silicon emulation systems/virtual platforms (C/C++)and use them for pre-silicon FW design and HW verification. • Implement key protocol, signal processing and numerical algorithms with very tight time, latency and energy budgets. • Evaluate and implement leading edge tools for build, formal verification and test (Python). • Perform interoperability tests with 3rd party vendors • Debug system level issue that involves multi technologies software (C/C++) and hardware (RTL) components in the area of power management, networking performance, coexistence and RF performance. • Define methodologies and best practices. Minimum Qualifications: The ideal candidate will have 3+ years of software development experience: • Deep understanding software engineering principles, and core computer science fundamentals. • Fundamental facility with C and C++, compilers, build and source code control tools.
