Do you want to use your Digital Signal Processing skills to help us make innovative world leading products and improve lives? Widex seeks experienced algorithm designers to join the Audiological Signal Processing team. The team is responsible for inventing and developing functionality for future generations of high-performance hearing aids and assistive devices.
About the job
You will take part in developing sound processing features and other hearing aid functionality to improve speech intelligibility, comfort, and user-friendliness for people wearing hearing aids.
You will participate in reviewing literature and patents; suggesting, prototyping, and selecting algorithms and solutions; performing simplifications and fixed-point implementations, simulations; documenting and handing over to ASIC designers; fine-tuning and troubleshooting when products are being launched.
You will also share responsibilities in system design; e.g., to ensure integration and interplay between hearing aids and connected devices, such as assistive listening devices, remote controls, tablets and smartphones.
It is a requirement that you have advanced knowledge in signal processing and its applications, and that you have a sound understanding of what it is possible to realize in practice. Preferably with experience from a previous position.
Moreover, it is desirable that you have knowledge of one or more of the following
- Audio signal processing
- Speech and audio coding. Perceptual Models
- Adaptive systems and stochastic signal processing
- Data analysis, parameter estimation, optimization, machine learning
- Acoustics, Psychoacoustics
We require that you have skills in:
- Numerical implementation techniques of complex solutions
- Proficiency in Matlab and C/C++. Proficiency in Python is desirable
- You are fluent in written and spoken English /and/or Danish
You have an analytical mindset, are self-motivated and persistent in carrying out your tasks. You have good cooperation skills and will enjoy agile work practices. You are the type of person who is always updated on new and near-future technology and with ideas for how to apply it.
Development of hearing aids requires an enthusiastic attitude for working on technologies that have a direct impact on the quality-of-life of hearing impaired people.
Widex hearing aids are renowned for their quality and their persistent emphasis on delivering clear and natural sound. Signal processing algorithms are developed in-house, and our ASIC designers implement the solutions in custom-made ASICs. Thereby, we can handle a high computational complexity at the limited power budget of a hearing aid battery.
The team provides an informal working environment with emphasis on strong skills. We promote independence and responsibility.
We offer attractive pension schemes with health insurance, sports and arts clubs, and good canteen facilities. Widex is based in environmentally friendly headquarters near Allerød, Denmark.
