Principal DSP Engineer

The DSP group in Cambridge Consultants develops innovative new technology at the exciting intersection of Digital Signal Processing, High-Performance Computing, and Machine Learning. We work on projects ranging from small, fast-paced studies to large multidisciplinary developments of 50+ engineers. We’ve developed products and systems across a wide variety of technologies and applications ranging from hearing aids to global satellite networks, from the world’s first all-digital radio transmitter to complex deep-learning systems that interact with humans in real time.

We’re looking for:

  • A passionate technologist with a keen desire to broaden their horizons in new and exciting areas
  • A creative thinker who thrives when faced with tough engineering challenges
  • A skilled technical leader who takes ownership of tasks and mentors others

Role Description

As a Principal Engineer you will be involved in every stage of our technology development life-cycle, from developing proof-of-concept demonstrations for initial sales leads, to designing, implementing and testing innovative new products. You will bring your strong team leadership and collaborative skills to bear by taking significant responsibility for technical delivery, on projects ranging from small developments involving 2-5 engineers to large-scale multidisciplinary programmes. In addition to day-to-day project work, you’ll also play a part in creating the Cambridge Consultants of tomorrow, contributing to new IP generation and developing our capabilities in up-and-coming new technologies.

You’ll have the opportunity to steer your career along the path of your choice, whether you prefer meeting and talking with clients or perhaps leading large teams on multiple projects.
