Senior DSP Engineer I


Milton Keynes, United Kingdom

Our state-of-the-art products result from our ability to solve complex and challenging design problems. To enhance our team we are looking for ambitious, high-calibre engineers with experience in complex Digital Signal Processing (DSP), communications systems, and control systems algorithm design, targeting high-speed efficient digital implementation in FPGA and ASIC. Strong mathematical skills and a willingness to innovate and ”think out of the box” are essential for the role. The successful candidate will be part of a team delivering complex modem and data processing solutions for state-of-the-art communications systems.


  • The research and design of fast and efficient hardware realisable DSP algorithms to implement functions such as filters, equalisers, timing/carrier recovery loops, multi-rate structures & FFT processing engines.
  • The development of models to provide real life stimulus for testing the developed algorithms, including phase and Gaussian noise, non-linear RF effects, Doppler, multipath and other such channel impairments.
  • The development of both floating and fixed point models in MATLAB, Python and C/C++ to the extent that data from the fixed point model can be directly used to accurately verify the functionality of the VHDL hardware realisation.
  • The successful candidate will be versatile and proactive, a clear communicator and team player with good inter-personal and social skills. They will be capable of generating accurate and concise documentation and design notes, and be able to disseminate critical information and interact with the design team.


  • A Bachelor of Science (BS) or Master of Science (MS) degree in Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering from an accredited university or institution.
  • It is envisaged that the successful candidate will have a minimum of 4 years of relevant experience.
  • A strong background in Wireless Communications, with theoretical knowledge of advanced concepts in DSP and digital communication systems, and a detailed understanding of wireless modem design.
  • Knowledge of the real-time implementation of complex DSP in both hardware and software.
  • Strong modelling skills using MATLAB, Python and C/C++ . Use scripting languages to achieve higher performance and improve testing and productivity through automation.
  • Ability to partition design problems and to define block-level hardware architectures, while optimising the designs for area, speed, and power to meet system requirements. Good knowledge of VHDL is essential.
  • Competence with MS Office tools to present technical information and generate concise reports.


  • Experience of FPGA development using VHDL, simulation, and top-level integration particularly using Xilinx design tools (Vivado)
  • Good understanding of well-known Wireless Communications standards, in particular the DVB-S2(X), DVB-RCS(2) and CCSDS standards.
  • Understanding of digital and analogue hardware design with some hands-on laboratory experience of bringing-up and validating designs, utilising various lab equipment.
  • Knowledge of VITA-49.2 protocols
  • Knowledge of the commercial landscape
  • Proven track record of on-time and high-quality project delivery
  • Experience working in both start-up environments as well as larger technical organization
