Signal Processing Engineer – Electronic Engineer


Location: Downtown Montreal

 

OSCP is a fabless, Canadian company whose technology portfolio focuses on photonic integrated sensors.  The technology involves developing simple, compact, low cost, low power consuming, and high-performance sensors for applications in navigation systems such as Inertial Measurement Units (gyroscopes and accelerometers).

The candidate will contribute to elaborate complex instrument setup that involves optoelectronics measurement, signal processing with lock-in and FPGA programing. He/she will mandate to troubleshoot setup to increase signal to noise ratio. One should be able to Measure noise via Allan Variance method and propose a new scheme for device configuration to improve sensor precision. Elaborate measurement strategy to fully characterize inertial devices (acceleration, vibration stability, thermal stability, stress stability, etc). Participate in fixing specifications for new products. 

Ideally, you have knowledge in quality control and statistical process control. This is a start-up environment, so you need a pro-active attitude, need to be creative and self motivated. You need to be hands-on (be able to make your own setup) and be ready for multi-functional tasks. We are looking for someone that likes to work in team to achieve common goals. This is high technology field, so you need to be comfortable with the unknown. In the same time, you need to have good skills in process solving, as well as knowing how to use other teammate competences in order to make progress in the project.

Qualifications

Minimum B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering or equivalent.

At least 5 years of relevant industrial experience in signal processing and electronics

Comprehensive knowledge of programming and experience in C, C++, Matlab, Python, Golang, or similar language used in the signal          processing

Knowledge of high-speed interface between FPGA and hardware

Experience in signal processing for low signal measurement

Experience in sensor designing & fabrication will be an asset.

Experience in optics, opto-electronics and/or photonics signal processing is preferred

Experience in automotive or aerospace certification will be an asset

You should have dynamic project management skills, adaptive to fast-pace start-up working environment and must be a team player

Self-motivated, strong time management skills in order to reliably deliver solutions within budget and tight timelines to meet customer’s          expectations

Strong participation as a team member as well as working independently; highly energetic and confident to convey a positive and professional attitude and demeanour in all interactions with others

Excellent communication and interpersonal skills; highly effective in formulating and communicating concepts, ideas, strategy to internal / external parties

Excellent research skills using Internet and printed materials; Ability to define problems, collect data, establish facts, and draw valid conclusions; A thorough understanding of electrical codes and safety approval processes

Highly detail oriented to ensure that design specifications are applied as intended, that sufficient documentation is provided and that issues are resolved effectively.

Bilingual French/English an asset.

 

Responsibilities

Reporting to the CTO, the Signal Processing Specialist role will include following broad responsibilities and any other assigned work from time to time.
