Cochlear is the global market leader in implant hearing solutions and is a top 100 company on the ASX. Cochlear's mission is to help people hear and be heard. Around the world, more people chose a Cochlear-branded hearing implant system than any other.

A Cochlear Implant is an electronic device that is surgically implanted under the skin near the ear that restores hearing to those who suffer from severe hearing loss. It’s an incredible piece of engineering and the only product in the world that restores a sense through technology.

As a DSP engineer you will get to write code that processes sound which is then sent to the Cochlear Implant to provide hearing.  

You’ll be part of the Firmware and Signal Processing team.  The successful candidate will hold a degree in electrical engineering or similar with knowledge of audio, speech or related signal processing including some of the following:

  • DSP firmware and signal processing design and implementation (e.g.: FFTs, IIR and FIR filters)
  • Algorithmic DSP modelling in Python, MATLAB or Simulink.
  • Machine learning for audio signal processing (include Scene classification)
  • Fixed-point DSPs and efficient coding in C and assembly.

You will be part of a leading R&D team that collaborates globally to deliver a great product to our customers. There is the opportunity to learn new things every day at Cochlear.   We are looking for someone who has the learning mindset to see challenging work as a vehicle for greater understanding and self-development. 

The role includes collaborating with researchers to implement and enhance new signal processing algorithms (often provided in MATLAB and/or Simulink).  You can contribute your own ideas and patentable inventions are encouraged with a financial incentive.  The role will also include re-evaluating and enhancing the existing signal path.

We take pride in producing high quality firmware that people rely on for their hearing every day.   We embrace automated testing to deliver reliable firmware that we aren’t afraid to improve or refactor.  You’ll write unit and system tests (in Python) to support the firmware and those tests will join thousands of existing tests that run on our industry-leading in-house continuous integration system. Naturally we also use version control, code review and bug tracking extensively.  And we like to automate our processes (using Python) so we can deliver firmware in the most efficient way.

Our employees tell us that the number one reason they enjoy working for Cochlear is the opportunity to make a difference to people's lives.   You’ll see why when you see some of these inspirational stories from our recipients.  (Yes, we linger at BBQs hoping someone will ask us what we doing for a living). Take the first step towards a career you can be proud of. Apply online today.
