Verus Research is searching for an experienced field programmable gate array (FPGA) developer to support a growing portfolio of research and development programs which blend the domains of directed energy and EW in signals intelligence (SIGINT), electronic intelligence (ELINT), radar, and telemetry systems.
The candidate will be required to work with a team of engineers and scientists in the field of EW, radio frequency (RF) communications, and RF/microwave systems engineering. The position requires working with tech-savvy customers, identifying their requirements, rapidly developing solution approaches, formulating execution strategies, and working with diverse internal technical teams to ensure successful program outcomes. The candidate will produce written documents describing requirements and technical solutions to include competitive proposal writing. The position is based in Albuquerque, NM.
The ideal candidate for the role will possess a strong mix of technical and analytical skills and the ability to communicate complex ideas and provide innovative solutions. Success in this demanding role will stem from:
- U.S. citizenship
- Currently holding or being able to obtain a Department of Defense security clearance
- Bachelor of Science in Mechatronics, Electrical, or Computer Engineering (advanced degree preferred) with 8 plus years of experience
- Demonstrated expertise in the design and optimization of hardware/firmware/software stacks found in Xilinx or similar SoCs
- Demonstrated knowledge of Verilog and/or VHDL for synthesis and simulation
- Demonstrated knowledge of FPGA design flow using entire Vivado toolchain, including FPGA design, simulation, and implementation, Petalinux build process, and SDK/Vitis build environment
- Demonstrated experience in converting complex signal processing algorithms from MATLAB or C++ into a specialized FPGA DSP optimized for high speed and low power consumption
- Demonstrated experience working with embedded microprocessors and software-defined radios
- Advanced knowledge of software concepts in C, such as state machine implemented by function pointer table
