Senior Acoustic Systems Engineer
Austin, TX - United States

The Audio Division of Cirrus Logic is seeking a Senior Systems
Engineer in the field of Acoustics who will be directly responsible
for developing the specifications, evaluation, and optimization of
voice and audio processing algorithms which improve intelligibility
and sound reproduction for portable consumer devices. This role works
hand in hand with the Signal Processing Algorithm Development and
Engineering Design Teams.

The candidate will determine and write functional requirements and
specifications for audio processing algorithms based on high-level
requirements from customers, Marketing or Engineering. In addition,
you will:
-          Be expected to research, specify, analyze and optimize
signal processing algorithms.
-          Define, design and debug associated hardware platforms for
support of engineering prototypes and Marketing demonstration boards.
-          Perform objective and subjective audio algorithm evaluation
and validation, data analysis and competitive benchmarking.
-          Apply robust acoustic analytical techniques to optimize the
signal processing results and determine adequacy to meet regulatory
and customer specific requirements.
-          Work with the company's patent attorney to patent developed
-          Participate in reviews of designs, implementations, or
documentation prepared by others or self

Required Skills:
-          MSEE degree with 6+ years of experience in acoustics
development for consumer electronic devices.
-          Strong hands-On experience conducting audio and acoustic
measurement and analysis.
-          Strong knowledge in both acoustic and signal processing theory.
-          Prior experience in adaptive filter design.
-          Prior experience in psychoacoustics, voice intelligibility,
noise suppression, echo and noise cancellation, voice recognition, or
speaker modeling and failure detection.
-          Experience with subjective acoustic performance and
objective acoustic/audio analysis.
-          Can write MATLAB simulation code for the investigation of algorithms.
-          Interpret test results and suggest performance improvement
-          Must be a self-starter and highly motivated.
-          Excellent communication and presentation skills required,
both written & verbal.

Skills recognized as a plus:
-          Experience in analog and digital PCB design, schematic
entry and circuit debug.
