Radar Signal Processing Engineer

Santa Clara Valley (Cupertino), California, United States


Posted: Jul 23, 2019
Role Number: 200083460
The Special Project Group at Apple is currently seeking a Radar Signal Processing Engineer Engineer to join our Hardware group in Sunnyvale, CA. Apple is looking for an experienced signal processing engineer with a background of applications in Radar or other imaging sensor modalities (Ultrasound, MRI, etc.) The Special Projects Group is developing next-generation Apple technologies that will shape the future. If you're passionate about the user experience, want to be part of a group that works on very early stage products, have the opportunity to shape them, and enjoy crafting robust, scalable, and maintainable services, we may be the team for you!

Key Qualifications

  • Required:
  • Experience developing and testing algorithms that handle data from sensor arrays
  • Solid understanding of statistics, estimation theory, Fourier transforms
  • Solid understanding of DSP fundamentals and hardware-aware design tradeoffs
  • Experience developing in MATLAB
  • Experience with classical radar techniques (SAR processing, CFAR, Kalman filtering, SLAM)
  • Experience with high-resolution techniques (compressive sensing, adaptive beamformers, MIMO, subspace methods)
  • Experience with machine learning techniques
  • Experience in C/C++ and Python


To succeed within this role, you should have solid experience in several of the following areas and will be responsible for: - Conception and development of signal processing techniques for imaging using millimeter-wave radar sensors. - Working with internal customers to identify requirements, implement solutions, and communicate potential impacts. - Signal modeling and simulation tasks would include: physical system modeling, modulation scheme design, simulation of hardware-induced non-idealities, and concept development of next-generation sensor signal processing. - Signal processing tasks would include: design, implementation, and test of sensor signal processing algorithms, development of tracking algorithms, compression of data product, visualization of data, and identification and extraction of novel signal features. - A strong self-starter capable of identifying and demonstrating techniques to enhance system performance with minimal supervision. - Interface in a cross-functional manner with collaborators spanning software, hardware, and system spaces.
