Sr. Software Engineer (Embedded API) for Multimarket Platform Group


Analog Devices (NASDAQ: ADI) designs and manufactures semiconductor products and solutions. We enable our customers to interpret the world around us by intelligently bridging the physical and digital worlds with unmatched technologies that sense, measure and connect.

Analog Device's technology can be found at the cutting edge of new technologies that are transforming the world in automotive, communications, aerospace, industrial, healthcare and power management.

This is an opportunity to contribute to innovative RF/converter-based System on a Chip (SoC) platform technology development, and to drive the key fundamental software engineering at ADI with the focus on providing complete subsystem solutions. This embedded software (firmware) engineering role resides within the Multimarket Platforms Group (MPG) in the Communications Division. The goal of the MPG software engineering team is to develop and deploy production quality software and sub-system platform solutions to our customers and partners to enable them to build systems and end-products for multiple applications/segments – high-speed communications systems, programmable and flexible software-defined Radio systems, RADAR systems, and high speed/bandwidth test equipment, to name a few. These systems include both standards-based and proprietary implementations, and are deployed in civil (healthcare, industrial, automotive, consumer) as well as defense applications. This role requires an energetic and motivated individual with strong communication, organizational, and technical skills who works well in a diverse environment across a geographically-distributed organization.

Key Responsibilities

  • Architect, Design, Develop and Verify embedded system software and device drivers for RF/high-speed converter front end, chips, and SoC products.
  • Develop on target systems that operate on bare-metal or OS-based framework, on an ARM or other embedded processors, with multi-threading capability
  • Understand system requirements; software architecture; algorithm and calibration mechanisms, and be able to implement and verify software and chip/system operation
  • Test and Debug embedded software on high-speed converter SoC using test equipment and test automation
  • Develop test code/scripts for logical and functional test of the software. Familiarity with SW methods, C, C++ and Python programming and microprocessors is a definite plus. 
  • Deliver quality embedded system firmware with very good documentation
  • Follow coding standards and code documentation requirements
  • Participate in code reviews
  • Understand RF/high-speed converter systems and associated test equipment, including power management and drivers/power amplifiers. Become knowledgeable & develop competence in algorithms, calibration and framework system design; and become familiar with amplifiers, mixers, PLLs, filters and phase shifters.
  • Work with IC and System Designers, FPGA Designers, Applications Engineers, and other software team members


  • Bachelor degree or higher in electrical, electronics, computer science or a related field
  • Working experience with embedded software, embedded frameworks and device drivers is an asset.
  • Knowledge of system architectures, and Programming experience in C, Python, .NET framework and Linux is a definite plus, as is familiarity with microprocessors, FPGA and related toolchains.
  • Familiarity with unit testing, code coverage and experience with associated tools
  • Working knowledge and practical experience with technologies used high-speed converters, Digital Signal Processing, algorithms, power management, data communications, control theory, etc.
  • Ability to interact effectively with customers.
  • Ability to develop, document, rationalize and present system requirements to a diverse audience of engineers.
  • Ability to work simultaneously on multiple projects and set priorities to deliver on schedule.
  • Team player, fluent in English, very good oral and written communications skills.

The Successful candidate will have the following Attributes/Skills/Experience:

  • 8+ years of embedded software development experience
  • Innovative, curious, analytical problem-solver with an interest in high-speed signal conversion technology and applications, and a bias to action.
  • Flexible and self-directed with a track record of delivery of leading-edge software products
  • Ability to work with diverse engineering teams, with wide-ranging backgrounds, cultures and geographies
  • Knowledgeable about system & platform concepts, software development processes, and quality management systems
