Escape Communications is an engineering design company located in the South Bay, a few short miles from Los Angeles County beaches. We provide cutting-edge wireless communications products and design services to the telecommunications and space communications industries. Escape is a small company, where engineers get the opportunity to wear many hats and learn many disciplines. We are growing, and we are looking for exceptional, motivated engineers to grow with us. We are currently looking for engineers with skills in signal processing development and embedded software design.
Escape Communications develops state-of-the-art signal processing platforms for bandwidth efficient, high capacity, terrestrial and SATCOM radio links. These platforms employ highly flexible architectures, with configurable modulation modes ranging from QPSK to 256 QAM, configurable bit rates ranging up to multi-gigabits per second, and configurable forward error correction. Flexible Mux and Demux functions allow the combining of multiple line interface types and channels within a single radio link. Applications include cellular backhaul, broadband wireless access backhaul, high capacity last mile, private networks and satellite communications.
Escape is seeking a talented and motivated individual to lead signal processing development and implementation on our radio modem products. Responsibilities include algorithm simulation and modeling (primarily C/C++ based), Hardware Description Language (VHDL) development and implementation, and functional verification of implementation on target hardware platforms, as well as oversight of other VHDL designers performing similar design work. Applicants must have a proven track record of DSP, ASIC and/or FPGA implementations. Specifically, in-depth understanding of FIR filters, adder/multiplier architectures, and optimal digital structures is required.
The position requires HDL-based digital design experience (VHDL preferred, Verilog OK), solid C/C++ programming skills, and experience implementing digital logic in commercial FPGAs. A strong educational background in digital signal processing theory is also required. Some experience leading small development teams is preferred.
A masters degree in EE or CS is required; applicants with Ph.D. are also welcome.
Preference will be given to applicants with prior relevant experience.
Escape Communications offers a relaxed work environment and a generous benefits package, including health benefits, flexible vacation time, a 401K retirement plan, and an incentive stock options plan for qualified applicants.
