Published: August 22, 2018
Are you ready to further develop the most advanced digital hearing aids on the market? Join an expanding R&D IC team in Copenhagen and use your skills to help define the future of chipset architecture and CMOS technology.

Leading major technology shifts with intelligent audio solutions
At the headquarters of GN Hearing, which is part of the GN Group in Copenhagen, you will be joining R&D IC - a dynamic team of 20+ designers that strive to develop leading chipsets for hearing applications. Together, we innovate and develop a wide variety of ultra-low-power mixed circuits in nanometer CMOS technologies from transistor-level to GDS and silicon.

Lead the future of chip technology
You will hold a central technical role in the IC team, with responsibility of chip architecture, design and qualification.

This includes:
• Defining new mixed chip architectures
• Driving high-level technical choices like foundry technology selection and chip partitioning
• Steering concept studies in early project phase
• Writing high-level specifications and review designers’ block-level specifications
• Guiding team members through design implementation phase
• Hands-on design of complex subsystems and transistor-level design of critical blocks
• Participating in design reviews and take part in the chip tape-out decisions
• Contributing to the chip qualification strategy in lab and wafer test

A position where you define the future of our chipsets
You will work alongside analog and digital IC designers, system designers specialized in audio processing and radio systems, a 3D integration team and technology providers. As principal engineer, you will be at the center of the projects and have a say in the future chipset designs and the improvement of our design methodologies.

Solid experience with CMOS
We seek a “can do” team player willing to thrive, to push innovation on the market and to make the team designing the best chipset in our business.

• You have a master’s degree or PhD in electronics engineering with emphasis on IC design
• You have 10+ years’ experience with CMOS analog or mixed design
• You’ve been in charge of subsystems like PLL, RFFE or DC-DC converter
• You’re an efficient user of EDA tools (Cadence/Mentor/Synopsys), augmented by automation of design tasks with some scripting language (python, TCL, Skill)
• You’re often using high-level analog modeling (verilogA)
• You’re familiar with CMOS fabrication and devices, their spice modeling and corner definition
• You’re familiar with sampled signal theory and analysis (Matlab, Python)
• You have excellent communication skills in English
