Skills/Experience Required:

Essential:

  • Very strong background in software design and implementation, especially in the context of a test application

  • Strong experience in scripting languages (ideally Tcl, Python)

  • Proven track-record in a product “design and test” business environment

  • Very strong background in software/hardware integration and debug

  • Commitment to delivering technical reports as required by the project team.


Desirable:

  • Experience of working within a product manufacture and test domain

  • RF test and measurement experience

  • Knowledge of digital electronics design and manufacture (schematic capture, PCB, FPGA/ASIC, power architecture)
