Job Title : System Integration Engineer - Sensors Integration and Verification 
Project Duration : 12 Months
Location: San Diego, CA
Job Overview
This position involves testing of sensor related software, algorithms and HW with the following hands-on responsibilities: -Review requirements and designs, define test requirements and test plans. -Validate sensor and algorithm performance against data sheets and tune sensors and elementary algorithms for a new HW. -Test development, execution, troubleshooting and problem resolution on embedded devices integrating sensors HW. Depending on the phase of the project, the focus is in verifying sensor performance against the data sheets at native API / driver level, validation of algorithm performance offline and within target or validating the actual user experience in Qualcomm or customer target HW. -Bring-up of new sensor SW and HW releases. This covers supporting the initial bring-up, verifying the initial HW design and validating the performance of the HW/SW implementation in highly integrated chipset environment. -Verify the successful interaction and concurrency with other chipset features. -Interact in a global team environment with various SW, system, test and test framework teams. -Drive the resolution of the observed issues with the development. -Track the status of test execution and open bugs, prioritize issues for the development and drive the successful commercialization of the feature or release. This is a challenging position offering a unique opportunity to work on the successful commercialization of leading edge sensor and wearable technologies in a fast-paced environment. The tasks will expose to the whole spectrum needed to create a successful customer product starting from sensor HW, including the sensor related algorithms with integration to other smart phone features all the way up to the high level operating system APIs and their features utilizing the underlying sensor technologies. An ideal candidate would be versatile hands-on system integration engineer with solid theoretical understanding and strong Matlab skills.
Minimum Qualifications:
-At least 3-5 years of work experience with embedded systems preferably integrating sensors (inertial, environmental, physiological and chemical) and capability to understand the expected behavior / performance based on sensor data sheets. -Good understanding of test methodology and test processes, including requirements collection, test plan development, execution and error tracking. -Excellent Matlab skills with familiarity of Perl / Python scripting. -Hands-on debugging skills in the lab using standard lab equipment (scopes, multi meters, voltage sources, sensor specific measurement equipment) to debug the system. -Previous experience in characterizing algorithm and/or sensor performance on the field and in the lab. -Detail oriented, thorough and analytical approach required with excellent communication skills. -Ability to time-share and prioritize between multiple tasks is crucial.
Preferred Qualifications:
-Previous exposure to dedicated sensors test equipment like rate tables, shake tables, temperature chambers, lab references etc. advantage. -Previous exposure to Qualcomm test tools and test processes extremely useful. -Understanding of sensor features in different mobile HLOS and their sensor features. -Understanding of the state of art display, camera and multimedia features integrating sensors in smart phones beneficial. -Understanding of different cellular systems and wireless radios in modern cell phones. -Previous C# / C++ / C programming experience would be beneficial.
Required: Master's, Computer Science and/or Electrical Engineering Preferred: Doctorate, Computer Science and/or Electrical Engineering
