  • Mathematical aptitude and intuition
  • A passion for engineering and technology
  • An imaginative and inquisitive mind and eagerness to learn new skills

In addition, any experience of the following would be advantageous;

  • Signal processing techniques and transforms (digital filters, Fourier analysis, z-transforms, matrix transforms etc.)
  • Acceleration with GPUs / experience with CUDA
  • A scripting language e.g. Python
  • Designing and training deep neural networks
  • Experience working with embedded hardware and tool chains
  • Deep learning frameworks such as TensorFlow™ and Torch
