Has experience in the WWAN specifications and can efficiently implement the shared resources of a multi-RAT modem. Works closely with other functional groups to develop a cost effective, high quality and high capability modem that meets industry and customer requirements with high performance (e.g. throughput, latency, power consumption) and acceptable cost (e.g. silicon area, calibration complexity, code size).

Minimum Qualifications:• Bachelor's degree in Computer Science, Engineering, Information Systems, or related field and 4+ years of Software Engineering or related work experience.
Master's degree in Computer Science, Engineering, Information Systems, or related field and 3+ years of Software Engineering or related work experience.
