Senior Hardware Engineer

Senior Hardware Engineer

Position Type

Full-time and Part-time

Role and Responsibilities

  • Serve as a technical team member of a small but experienced team in the design and development of products. Development activities would include new designs, derivative designs, and functional and performance enhancements to existing products.
  • Contribute to the design and verification of dense embedded digital and analog boards using high-speed FPGAs, and high speed SoC elements, within a local team environment but including co-operation with teams based in other locations.
  • FPGA system integration, working closely with a software and system quality assurance teams.
  • Support and work in conjunction with an architecture team to assess and scope new product features.
  • Independently resolve technical problems, initiating design changes and providing engineering support to assess customer needs and solve field issues.
  • Generate required product development documentation including, but not limited to functional specifications and detailed design documents.
  • Participate in source code control and software release activities as required.
  • Communicate project status, issues, and requirements both verbally and in writing.
  • Conduct technical presentations/demonstrations if necessary.
  • Perform other duties as required.


  • Working knowledge of FPGA and/or ASIC design principles and techniques applied to development on dense and complex FPGA architectures.
  • Experience designing dense mix (analog and digital) boards for telecom applications
  • Experience with FPGA design tools such as Xilinx Vivado or Altera Quartus, and simulation/verification tools such as Mentor Questa Sim or Synopsys VCS.
  • RTL coding (VHDL, Verilog, System Verilog).
  • Other coding/scripting (e.g. C, C++, SystemC, MATLAB, TCL, Perl, etc.)
  • Laboratory use of high-speed spectrum analyzers, logic analyzers and related tools.
  • Experience with source code control and version tools such as Rational Clearcase.
  • The ability to multi-task and work independently with minimal supervision.
  • Good verbal, written, and presentation skills.
  • Familiarity with advanced FPGA technology, including MPSoC.
  • Familiarity with networking protocols such as Ethernet, IP, MPEG2, etc.
  • Familiarity with wireless communication protocols, LTE, Wifi, UMTS, etc.
  • Practical experience with high speed interfaces such as 10G Ethernet and the implementation of internal high bandwidth streaming interfaces.
  • Practical experience designing analog and digital multilayer boards operating at high speeds
  • A working appreciation of embedded processor architectures and soft micro-processor cores, and interfaces with programmable logic for the implementation of dense high-speed designs.
  • An understanding of basic DSP techniques and modulation schemes including QAM and OFDM.
  • A strong algorithmic ability coupled with a background in modelling tools such as MATLAB or NumPy.

Qualifications and Experience

  • Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, prefer a MS in Electrical Engineering.
  • 4-6 years design experience in dense analog and digital boards with FPGA, ASIC technology, SoC technologies, and mix analog/digital circuit and ICs, preferably in the telecommunications industry.
