Cochlear is the global market leader in implant hearing solutions and is a top 100 company on the ASX. Our mission is to help people hear and be heard, changing the wellbeing of individuals one step at a time! Around the world, more people chose a Cochlear-branded hearing implant system than any other, and there’s a reason for that!

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 by some of the greatest in the field, and it is the only product in the world that restores a sense through technology. This is something exciting that you can be a part of, especially if you are full of ideas and passion for a high growth, innovative company.

If working at a company focused on changing people’s lives and valuing a strong collaborative and innovative spirit, we’re excited to talk to you! As a DSP engineer you will get to write code that processes sound, which is then sent to the Cochlear Implant to provide hearing, effectively contributing directly to the end user experience!   

You’ll be part of the Signal Processing team and we would expect you to have:

  • A degree in electrical engineering or similar with knowledge of audio, speech or related signal processing
  • Experience in signal processing design and implementation of building blocks like FFTs, IIR and FIR filters
  • Experience with algorithmic DSP modelling in Python, MATLAB or Simulink.
  • Experience with machine learning for audio signal processing (include Scene classification)
  • Skilled and efficient abilities in coding in C.

It’ll be awesome, but not required if you have:

  • Experience with IP generation and protection.
  • Experience in mentoring  engineers to help grow an impact full team.
  • Prior research experience in sound processing algorithm development.
  • Experience with implementation of algorithms in Matlab and Simulink.
  • Experience working at all stages of the software development lifecycle.

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. 

You will be collaborating with many different people to implement and enhance new signal processing algorithms (often provided in MATLAB and/or Simulink). You can make a project your own and really contribute your own ideas; we encourage patentable inventions, and have a financial incentive added as a bonus!

We take pride in producing high quality signal processing algorithms that people rely on for their hearing every day. We embrace automated testing to deliver reliable software – and we aren’t afraid to improve or refactor this. You’ll write unit and system tests (in Python) to support the software 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.
