Summary of Role:

We are seeking a DSP engineer to join our Research and Development group. This individual will be responsible for developing embedded, low-power signal processing algorithms to extract high quality cardiac data from wearable sensor data. This work will involve using and inventing time-series signal processing and implementing machine learning techniques to outperform state-of-the-art algorithms and trained experts. The opportunity involves developing robust techniques for biological signal processing that work in real-time across a variety of body types and environmental conditions with a battery operated device.


 Develop time-frequency approaches to measure high quality cardiac electrical data  Work with hardware team to design analog front-end and digital front-end trade-offs  Write and validate embedded code for on-chip digital signal processing


 EE or CS background required (M.S. +2 years or B.S +5 years of experience)
 Expert in embedded system signal processing (e.g., C, C++)
 Proficiency in signal processing fundamentals with particular focus on time-frequency techniques (e.g., Fourier and wavelet filtering) and descriptive statistics
 Appreciation for quality system, risk management, and medical product development processes
 Outstanding written and verbal communication
 Bonus: knowledge and interest in machine learning techniques
