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.

This is an opportunity to join a team that is pioneering the design and standardization of Vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communications and other forward-looking capabilities needed to fully realize the potential of Connected and Automated Vehicles (CAV) and Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). The focus of the job includes design and standardization work on PHY/MAC and other radio-specific layers of 3GPP cellular based technology for direct short-range communications, including both LTE-V2X and NR-V2X.

**In this role you will be responsible for:**

+ The candidate is expected to directly participate in team design activities, including those related to the features, capabilities, configuration, profiling, and deployment of LTE-V2X and NR-V2X.

+ The candidate is also expected to develop technical contributions based on those designs and give high quality presentations of them in relevant SDOs (such as 3GPP, ETSI, SAE, etc.), to obtain consensus and proactively promote Qualcomms preferences.

+ Attendance to relevant SDO working groups may be part of the job. Consequently, the candidate is expected to be available to travel for week-long meetings (on average 6 or more meetings per year are to be expected, distributed between Europe, North America and Asia).

+ The candidate should have good leadership qualities and be capable to providing guidance and direction to coordinate the efforts of a small team when assigned in a leadership role.

+ The candidate will operate in collaboration with different business units within the company, including research projects and product groups in San Diego.

+ The candidate will work in an exciting environment with a team of some of the brightest systems engineers in the industry and will have frequent interaction with other engineering disciplines.

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