Job Area:Engineering Group, Engineering Group > Camera Engineering
Qualcomm is a company of inventors that unlocked 5G ushering in an age of rapid acceleration in connectivity and new possibilities that will transform industries, create jobs, and enrich lives. But this is just the beginning. It takes inventive minds with diverse skills, backgrounds, and cultures to transform 5Gs potential into world-changing technologies and products. This is the Invention Age – and this is where you come in.
Researches, designs, develops, implements, and verifies complex camera systems and HW or FW tasks (including Camera Image Signal Processor (ISP), 3A (AWB, AEC, AF), Image Quality, Features, Tuning Tools), algorithms, features, logic design, modeling, and design verification. Performs architecture, IQ modules, algorithm and feature decomposition to drive requirements and specifications for hardware development. Ensures image quality, systems performance, ISP area and power metrics are met. The responsibilities of this role include: • Working under close supervision.• Taking responsibility for own work and making decisions with limited impact; impact of decisions is readily apparent; errors made typically only impact timeline (i.e., require additional time to correct).• Using verbal and written communication skills to convey basic, routine factual information about day-to-day activities to others who are fully knowledgeable in the subject area.• Working within prescribed budget and resources.• Completing some tasks with multiple steps which must be performed in a specific order; directions or manuals can accurately document the steps necessary to perform the task.• Exercising some creativity to troubleshoot technical problems or deal with novel circumstances.• Using deductive problem solving to solve moderately complex problems; most problems have defined processes of diagnosis/detection; some limited data analysis may be required.The responsibilities of this role do not include: • Providing supervision/guidance to others.• Influence over key organizational decisions.• Role in strategic planning.Principal Duties and Responsibilities• Leverages basic understanding of camera processing blocks to work on defined tasks related to one or more functions of a feature; works under close supervision.• Debugs isolated or well-defined issues.• Collaborates with team members and other camera teams on the design, development, and optimization of camera systems, hardware, and/or software.• Writes clear technical documentation and feature descriptions for straightforward projects under the direction of a supervisor.
