Responsibilities
Candidates for this position are software engineers with strong knowledge and hands-on experience in embedded software development.
Ideal candidates have diverse knowledge and a wide variety of interests, especially in cellular / wireless communications.
You will be responsible for full-process development on a variety of different projects involving multiple coding and scripting languages like Java, C, C++, Perl, etc. As part of a small (1-6 person) multi-disciplinary engineering team, you and the other software engineer(s) will have full responsibility for product development from requirements gathering to shipping. You must have the ability to meaningfully communicate with members of all engineering disciplines (Hardware, RF, Software, FPGA, etc), as well as management.
You will be expected to perform duties in all areas of development (i.e. requirements analysis, high and low level design, coding, documentation, and testing and validation). Our products are developed to very high standards of quality and reliability and you will be expected to learn and conform to the department's software process during all development activities.
You must be a flexible, results-oriented problem-solver who requires minimal supervision. Projects can vary greatly from one to the next, so you must thrive on variety and enjoy taking on new challenges.

Specific Skills
In this position you will need a willingness to learn one or more wireless communication standards (GSM, CDMA, UMTS, LTE, iDEN, Tetra, etc.). You will have the opportunity to work with the latest in commercial technology and add significant capabilities to these systems. You must possess knowledge in (or an interest in) microprocessor-based hardware design. Working in a small project team, your tasks will often involve hands-on interaction with product hardware for developing and debugging. Excellent verbal and written communication skills are important. You must have an excellent understanding of real-time embedded software design and be proficient in Linux, C, C++, Perl and other software languages and operating systems.
Agile software development and/or git/gerrit/Jira experience is a plus.
A thorough understanding of UML and ClearCase is desirable.
