Job Overview Qualcomm is looking for full-time Hardware Design Engineer who will become a member of our Imaging R&D group designing camera hardware and image capture systems for both our internal testing platform based on USB3 and Qualcomm chipsets. The job function covers designing hardware using image sensors, illumination devices and additional processing circuits, bringing-up those designs on the internal USB3 platform as well as on Qualcomm chipsets. PWB design, quick-turn prototyping solutions, technology investigation, and cross-functional interaction with software teams, algorithm developers, component engineers, ASIC designers and 3rd party vendors will be an integral part of the job. Successful candidates will be responsible for:
Designing circuits for FPGA-based, microcontroller-based platforms, and for image sensor interfaces, writing and updating technical specifications, participating in design reviews, component evaluation and selection.
Schematic capture, generating constraints for PCB layouts, supervising CAD designers, BOM generation, configuration and change management.
Initial hardware bring-up, design verification and test (DVT) and supporting manufacturing.
Opportunities will exist to do hardware designs with many Qualcomm chipsets including MSM. Successful candidates will also be able to manage multiple design tasks simultaneously.
All Qualcomm employees are expected to actively support diversity on their teams, and in the Company.
Minimum Qualifications
Bachelor's degree in Science, Engineering, or related field.
2+ years ASIC design, verification, or related work experience.

About the company

Billions, maybe trillions of times a day…

That’s how often people around the world likely grab for their smartphone- and all that incredible stuff a phone can do that keeps people reaching for it multiple times a day- Qualcomm invented the stuff that made that stuff possible.

Who is Qualcomm, and what do we do? We are engineers, scientists and business strategists. We come from different countries and diverse cultures, speak different languages and offer unique perspectives. Together, we focus on a single goal—to lead the way to a new era of intelligent, connected devices.

Qualcomm’s technologies powered the smartphone revolution by connecting the phone to the Internet, and now we are changing everything about everything else. We pioneered 3G and 4G, propelling mobile to the forefront of the technology world, and now, we are leading the way to 5G that will connect billions more. Our products revolutionize industries from automotive and IoT to healthcare and data-centers, and are allowing millions of devices to connect with each other in new ways never imagined.

We've been called dreamers, inventors, rebels, risk takers, pioneers and geeks. We dream big. We invent bigger. Most importantly, we often do what many think is impossible in the name of innovation.
