The Raytheon Applied Signal Technology (RAST) engineering team in Sunnyvale, CA, seeks a wireless digital signal processing (DSP) engineer to lead a team of DSP engineers and work with system and design engineers to develop, code, and debug signal processing algorithms for cutting-edge wireless signal processing systems, software defined radios and related applications.


The successful candidate will be able to:

  • Prototype and model algorithms in MATLAB using simulated and real data signals
  • Design robust C/C++ software implementations of DSP algorithms to solve challenging communications problems
  • Optimize C/C++ algorithm implementations to run on embedded DSP processors
  • Test software implementations at the unit, component, and system levels to ensure robust end-to-end signal processing performance
  • Lead a team of 3-5 engineers in planning and executing any of the activities listed above

Basic Qualifications/Requirements:

  • BS Electrical Engineering or equivalent
  • 6+ years of experience developing, implementing, and optimizing signal processing algorithms for communication, detection, and/or estimation systems in MATLAB and C/C++
  • Strong theoretical background in DSP, digital communications, equalization and demodulation, channel coding, and related fields
  • Experience with design and implementation of numerical algorithms and control logic for real-time embedded platforms
  • 2+ years of experience leading small teams of software engineers from the design through the system integration and test phases
  • Experience with structured software development including software estimation, design documentation, conducting code/design reviews, and tracking progress
  • Excellent debugging and problem solving skills through the use of lab experiments, data analysis, and software tools
  • U.S. Citizenship status is required as this position will need a U.S. Security Clearance within 1 year of start date.

Desirable Skills/ Experience:

  • MS in Electrical Engineering or equivalent
  • Significant experience working with 2G, 3G and/or 4G cellular standards and signals, particularly at the PHY layer
  • First-hand experience working with real-world wireless data signals
  • Knowledge and experience with multi-sensor techniques including beam-forming and direction finding
  • Experience communicating designs, progress, test plans, and results with managers, senior technical leadership, and/or customers
  • Extensive experience with Texas Instruments DSPs, particularly multi-core processors
  • Working knowledge of DSP algorithm implementation in FPGA
  • Active TS clearance within the last 2 years
