MIT Lincoln Laboratory Embedded Hardware Engineer in Lexington, Massachusetts
One mission of the Embedded and Open Systems Group is the development and deployment of real-time embedded processing systems. The group designs these systems using diverse computational elements including ASICs, FPGAs, GPUs, and microprocessors in support of DoD applications including radar and communications. Hardware, software, mathematical, and security expertise are blended to optimize solutions. A key focus area is custom low-power, high-performance solutions that provide mission critical capabilities to the warfighter. Our innovative processing architectures efficiently implement required complex signal processing functionality. We succeed by participating in all program phases including system analysis, architecture definition, design, prototyping, field testing, and ultimately the transfer of our technology.
We are looking for talented, experienced engineers who can create advanced real-time systems based on novel ideas from many areas including embedded processing, digital signal processing, sensor systems, and artificial intelligence. We need our engineers to be versatile, innovative, display technical leadership qualities, and contribute to high-performing teams that produce world-class results. The candidate will help to define, implement, and demonstrate complex, low-power digital processing systems based primarily on ASIC and FPGA technologies that support a broad range of challenging national defense applications. The role is inherently cross-functional, working with multiple knowledge domain experts and external organizations to meet program and system performance objectives. The candidate will have the opportunity to contribute to the entire processor system development from architecture definition through deployment.
Deep technical expertise essential for this position with strong communication and interpersonal skills highly valued. The candidate must be a proven team player and have demonstrated proficiency in task planning and execution.
Master’s degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, or related fields. In lieu of a Master’s degree, a Bachelor’s degree with a minimum of 3 years of directly related experience will be considered.
