DSP Software Engineer – SatCom Solutions

Luxembourg

Amphinicy is starting an exciting, ESA-funded, project to develop a fully virtualized satellite communication as a service solution. It shall remotely provision a secure, ad-hoc, ground station modem in a virtual cloud-based environment – enabling satellite operators to define, test, and operate their mission communications flexibly, efficiently, and cost-effectively.

We are looking for a DSP software engineer with practical experience and passion in signal processing, to lead the development of a cross-platform, fully software-based modem. You will follow an extensive on-site training that will introduce you to the necessary domain knowledge. Your responsibility will be to lead the design, implementation, and validation of DSP functions, troubleshoot integration at systems level, execution speed optimization, support testing and demonstration, as well as onboard new colleagues on this project. You will be an integral part of a multi-disciplinary team of experienced, friendly, and talented colleagues, who are passionate about virtualizing satellite communications and support each other perfectly. You will have the chance to innovate and build from scratch and take a leading role in shaping the space communications of the future.
