Description & Requirements

About the Role

As a Senior DSP Software Engineer you will work on products that will be developed for OEM automotive amplifiers and other similar audio processing products.  Products typically consist of a microcontroller for configuration, communication and control and a DSP processor for audio processing.  Software development work will be mainly working within complex, multi-threaded, multi-processor or multi-core architectures and audio frameworks to integrate DSP algorithms and control structures.

What You Will Do

  • Develop and integrate audio DSP algorithms for the automotive environment.

  • Co-develop and/or work within complex, multi-threaded, multi-processor architectures and audio frameworks to integrate DSP algorithms and control structures.

  • Develop production ready software following a defined software development process

  • Design software features and architectures for an audio amplifier platform based on interpretation of customer requirements and/or technology development initiatives

  • Resolve design conflicts arising from multiple requirement sources and maximize code re-use, flexibility and scalability

  • Conceptualize multiple use cases to design a single system to suit many uses

  • Analyze and resolve incompatibility and conflicts between individual DSP algorithms under various modes of system operation

  • Estimate processing resources including MIPS, ROM and RAM

  • Optimize individual algorithms and total system performance

  • Analyze performance impacts of block size, sample rate, memory organization, cache usage and code structure

  • Analyze multiple approaches to a problem and chose the best solution based on experience and sound engineering practices

  • Present and defend technical decisions to peers and engineering management using facts

  • Integrate DSP algorithms with an audio framework, control software and tuning structure and extend the framework as necessary

  • Ensure all system components are diagnosable during development and once deployed

  • Perform regression and integration tests on audio features and systems

  • Create models and documentation suitable for other developers to create an implementation.

What You Need

  • Bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering, computer science, or equivalent

  • 6+ years of embedded software development or testing

  • 6+ years of C/C++ or other structured language

  • 6+ years of experience in the DSP and/or audio field

  • Experience developing consumer products

  • Experience with tuning/calibrating systems of algorithms

  • Knowledge of features, strengths and weaknesses of various DSP platforms and algorithm approaches

  • Knowledge of embedded system debuggers, emulators, compilers, etc.

  • Working knowledge of embedded operating systems (schedulers, memory management, driver models, RTOS concepts

  • Experienced working with and/or leading off-shore development teams

  • Creative problem-solver capable of creating and reproducing complex software defects

What is Nice to Have

  • Strong understanding of DSP frameworks and how individual DSP algorithms interface and interact with each other, the control software and tool interfaces in an optimized way

  • Able to read schematics and debug analog and digital hardware

  • Experience with multi-core System-on-Chip processors

  • Experience developing automotive or military products

  • Experience with SPICE compatible software development practices

  • Working knowledge of personal computing and mobile device platforms

  • Expert in MATLAB and Simulink

  • Deep knowledge of digital communication protocols: I2C, I2S, SPI, UART, USB, BT

  • Working knowledge of automotive networks: CAN, LIN, Ethernet, TCP/IP, MOST

  • Deep knowledge of audio systems and acoustic principles

  • Very good knowledge of amplifier hardware concepts including data converters, power supplies, output stages and analog filter design.

What Makes You Eligible

  • Be willing to travel up to 10% domestic and international travel.

  • Be willing to work in a Bangalore, India

What We Offer

  • Flexible work environment, allowing for full-time remote work globally for positions that can be performed outside a HARMAN or customer location

  • Access to employee discounts on world-class Harman and Samsung products (JBL, HARMAN Kardon, AKG, etc.)

  • Extensive training opportunities through our own HARMAN University

  • Competitive wellness benefits

  • Tuition Reimbursement

  • Access to HARMAN Campus Fitness Center and Cafeteria

  • An inclusive and diverse work environment that fosters and encourages professional and personal development
