What You'll Do 

As a DSP System Engineer for our location in Nuremberg you will define and design high complex digital signal processing algorithms implemented in application specific IC. These designs form the defendable intellectual property of our coherent transmission product families for data rates of 400Gbps and above. 
In your work you will cover following topics 
- Definition of signal processing algorithms 
- Implementation of signal processing algorithms into ASICs 
- Work on power and complexity optimization for digital signal processing algorithms in the context of optical data transmission 
- Investigate and improve algorithms to find approaches for power optimized implementation 
- Investigate approaches for predictable power consumption of high complex designs in an early design phase to allow for power comparison of different algorithms and implementations 
- Create simulation tools for investigation of algorithms 
- Explore verification concepts for their suitability of computational data processing algorithms 

Who You'll Work With 

High Speed Optics Department. We focus on high speed, high performance optical system interfaces for cost-effective high-density system applications in Cisco differentiated by fulfilling specific Cisco requirements best. We see our core competencies in digital signal processing (e.g. equalization) mixed signal design (e.g. converters and interfaces) detection algorithms (e.g. FEC) using advanced technology (e.g. optical and ASIC technologies). In the optical system design team we focus on requirements and architectures of next generations coherent interface. In addition we develop and investigate signal processing algorithms which will be implemented into ASICs. 

Who You Are 

You have experience in optical transmission systems and a strong background in communication theory. In addition you have knowledge in signal processing algorithms suitable for coherent transmission. 

Our requirements for this role: 
- Master degree in electrical engineering 
- Excellent knowhow in digital signal processing 
- Strong background in communication theory 
- Knowledge in modern modulation formats, forward error correction and signal processing algorithms 
- Good understanding of communications theory in optical transmission systems 
- Knowledge in ASIC architectures and implementation 

Why Cisco 

We connect everything: people, processes, data, and things. We innovate everywhere, taking bold risks to shape the technologies that give us smart cities, connected cars, and handheld hospitals. And we do it in style with unique personalities who aren't afraid to change the way the world works, lives, plays and learns. We are thought leaders, tech geeks, pop culture aficionados, and we even have a few purple haired rock stars. We celebrate the creativity and diversity that fuels our innovation. We are dreamers and we are doers. We Are Cisco.

We connect everything - people, process, data and things. We innovate everywhere to create fresh ideas and possibilities. We make a meaningful difference that will benefit everyone - our people, our customers and the world around us.

Our technology changes the way the world works, lives, plays and learns. But our edge doesn't come from technology. It comes from our people. We're looking for the kind of people who take smart risks, thrive in diverse environments, inspire their colleagues, and are committed to having an impact on the world. Whether you create technology solutions that redefine business or build connections that strengthen the community, you can make it happen at Cisco!
