Job Overview

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.

The Qualcomm Location Systems Team works on the architecture, design, implementation and validation of algorithms for world-class location and navigation technology, from concept to commercialization. This position is focused primarily on GNSS-based location and navigation, in particular the physical layer or Measurement Engine part of the GNSS receiver. Main responsibilities for this position include: (1) Design the signal processing algorithms for acquiring, tracking, and measuring GNSS signals. Translate models and algorithms into functional fixed-point reference models for the GNSS Measurement Engine design. (2) Model (C/C++), simulate, and verify GNSS Measurement Engine sub-systems that are part of functional pre-product and final product design implementation. Support hardware, firmware, software and RF teams with verification of GNSS receiver prototypes and products. (3) Provide system support for debug, and performance calibration. Drive resolution of technical issues with cross-functional teams. Escalate issues in an appropriate and timely manner. Apply advanced problem solving of complex GNSS receiver subsystems including RF, HW, and FW implementation.

All Qualcomm employees are expected to actively support diversity on their teams, and in the Company.
