Senior Audio System Architect | B+C
19 October 2021

Do you have a passion for sound, and are you ready to help define our audio solutions for the future?

"Surrounding ourselves with state-of-the-art technologies, we never know what tomorrow brings. But we put our minds together to develop amazing audio products. In this brand-new position, you will gain a full overview of our audio system and play a key role in our Audio platform," says Audio Engineering Manager Bjarke Heesche.

Join our skilled Audio Engineering unit

In the R&D Audio Engineering department, a part of GN Audio, we know sound. Here, all our top-of-the-line Jabra communication and music products are hatched. In the R&D Audio Engineering department, located in Ballerup, Denmark, you will join an international team of more than 60 dedicated audio engineers, who keep at the forefront of sound technology to develop innovative solutions which raise the bar for the power of sound. Now we need your skills to help take us to the next level!

The architect behind our audio platforms

As an audio DSP architect, you will play a key role in the development of one or more of our target platforms. Having a holistic overview of the technical possibilities as well as limitations of the platforms, you will be the go-to person for technical insight in the platform. Because this position is new, you will also play a part in shaping the role. We do imagine, however, that you will work at system level.

In your daily work, you will join a Scrum team working with one of our platforms and ensure that we maintain a similar structure across the platforms – while also understanding how they may differ from one another and why. When R&D brings forward a new audio concept, you will be the one to advise on how to integrate these new technologies into our platforms.

"You will have the full system overview. While you may not do any programming yourself, you understand the discipline and will be the one to communicate the possibilities and challenges of the target platforms we work on" Bjarke says.

System wiz with good communication skills

While you need to have a good understanding of audio systems and especially DSP, you are also able to maintain a holistic view and communicate possibilities and obstacles when colleagues come to you for advice. You should have expertise in software, hardware or both. Furthermore, you should possess a deep understanding of acoustic concepts, end-to-end audio system design including audio flow and processing blocks, and audio algorithms encoding/decoding.

We also believe you have most of the following:

• BS/MS Degree in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, or similar.

• 3+ years experience as system or software architect for audio features.

• 5+ years experience developing embedded systems including experience as a software, silicon/SoC or system solutions architect.

• Experience with C programming, and a good understanding of audio interfaces such as Bluetooth, USB, digital and analogue I/O, etc.

• Experience with audio, voice, speech and sensing technologies, DSP development, acoustics, and researching industry trends.

• System integration skills and experience in cross-functional collaborations.

• You speak and write English effortlessly.

As a person, you are results-oriented, analytical, and able to multi-task in a fast-paced environment. You enjoy an agile and flexible environment, where teamwork and collaborations are key to success.And most important of all – you share our passion for sound and want to be part of our continued success story!
