Oticon has just revealed a new groundbreaking Velox platform for our next generation hearing aids. We are very proud of this achievement and not afraid of calling it a paradigm shift in hearing care. At the core of the platform lies our DSP with seven processors, enabling us to process data 50 times faster than our current fastest solution in the market. Consequently, our future hearing aid users will experience a better ability to separate speech from background noise. They will also have a better ability to follow conversations and not missing out, as the platform is able to analyze the environment 100 times per second.
The Audiological Design & Signal Processing group has worked hard and dedicated on delivering the foundation for the Velox platform - but we do not rest here. We are already looking into further optimizations within the technology. This is why we need you, an experienced engineer within DSP and audiology, to support us in bringing the next generation hearing aids to life. Through design of new audiology and signal processing our goal is to drive the technology to the next level.
You will be part of a dedicated and highly skilled group of approx. 25 developers, who all work with designing and creating audiological solutions for our hearing aids using digital signal processing. At the same time, you will be a part of one of the largest and technical advanced R&D units within the area, with +500 engineers working with numerous cutting edge technologies and innovations.
You have a MSc. or PhD in Engineering, preferably within audiology or digital signal processing.
Additionally, besides your solid core skills within audio signal processing, you feel comfortable working in a dynamic environment. Drive and initiative comes natural to you, you may have worked as a scrum master, and you are familiar with Agile workflows (Scrum, Kanban etc.) and the concepts of continuous integration and incremental test driven development.
More specifically, you can prove experience within the following:
Furthermore, knowledge within the following is a plus:
As a person, you thrive working with the entire development process and you are motivated by following your tasks to completion. At the same time, you are a strong team player who puts the team's performance and goals above your own individual views and needs. You have a proactive and dynamic behavior. You work well with seeking out knowledge and information in order to perform your tasks. We furthermore expect you to be fluent in English.

Together with your talented colleagues who take pride in making a difference, you will have the opportunity to put your mark on tomorrow's solutions. We are at the forefront of the latest technology, constantly working to improve hearing solutions for our users so that we can strengthen and develop the business.
