Hiring – digital IC design engineer

Location:  Oslo, Norway

sensiBel is a Norwegian deep-tech company developing the next generation MEMS microphone.  The microphone is based on a patented optical readout technology enabling professional grade performance in a small package.  Our ambition is to disrupt the market and enable new and improved user experiences in a wide range of applications. It all comes down to the fundamentals in the audio signal processing chain – the microphone. We believe in professional grade audio for everyone!

About the job

It’s an exciting time to join sensiBel on our journey to bring the next generation microphone technology to the market. You will be part of a highly skilled, committed and motivated team that embraces challenging tasks every day. Our microphone contains unique state-of-the-art integrated readout circuitry that samples audio signals. As a full-time digital IC design engineer, you will be at the heart of our engineering activities, creating a crucial part of our microphone. You will be a key contributor to our success and have fun along the way. 

Key responsibilities 

  • Develop digital building blocks for signal processing in an ultra-low noise digital microphone: Module specification and modeling; Write RTL implementation; Run rigorous simulation and verification; Technical reviews.
  • Interface and integrate analog building blocks in the IC. Co-verification of analog and digital circuits. 
  • Support and improve digital front-end and back-end tasks (synthesis, P&R, DFT, sign-off, etc.). 
  • Support test and qualification of the final circuits.

Qualifications and skills

We are seeking a M.Sc. or B.Sc in electrical engineering or similar with good verbal and written communication skills, attention to details, and minimum 5 years of experience from digital/mixed-signal IC RTL design. Experience from several of the following areas is highly desirable:
