Electro-Acoustic Developer

Electro Acoustic Developer for HW platform creation

For the fifth time in a row, Danish engineers in #profilanalysen2020 have rated Oticon as #1 place to work for Engineers.

So, what do engineers like about Oticon?
According to Profilanalysen, we offer an innovative work environment, good career opportunities, professional development, work-life-balance and high-quality products.

We are proud about developing best in class hearing solutions that change people’s life quality. At our HQ we have +600 engineers, so there are ample opportunities to learn new skills and discuss with some of the sharpest minds in the business.

Join our team to make a true difference
We would like a talented electro acoustic developer to join our very successful R&D team in Copenhagen / Denmark, working in an environment with state-of-the-art facilities and equipment where you have the opportunity to make a difference for people with a hearing loss.

You will get the possibility to work with us on increasing our capabilities within innovative electro acoustics and supporting us in bringing our leading hearing aid products to the market. Furthermore, you will be part of a dynamic environment built on trust, openness, and a strong will to win.

Building unique Electro Acoustic Solutions
Together with 50 skillful and enthusiastic colleagues, you will join us in challenging conventional electro acoustic and mechanical solutions to improve end-user and customer satisfaction.

In your new job you will be part of Oticon’s Hardware Function, more specific the Hardware Acoustics and Mechanics group. The excitement this group faces on a daily basis is the development of highly challenging platforms, due to the high degree of functionality that hearing instruments offer. Furthermore, we focus on developing our platforms to fit multiple brands adding to the complexity. The team works closely together with other competences i.e. audiologists and engineers specialized in amplifiers and embedded systems.

The biggest challenge is still to develop a platform that provides the needed acoustical gain and at the same time securing a good mechanical and acoustical feedback margin. Here a close corporation with the mechanical engineers and the pre-production team is crucial for a good result. Your responsibilities include:

 

•                    Acoustic system design and development

•                    Platform calibration/settings

•                    Design specifications

•                    Selection of components i.e. transducers – microphones, receivers/speakers

•                    Testing, verifying and documenting electro-acoustical performance of HW platforms

As Electro Acoustic Developer you will have a high degree of influence and together with your colleagues you will contribute to the development of the next cutting-edge hearing instruments.

Talented electro acoustic developer
We expect you to hold a B.Sc. or M.Sc. in Engineering, focusing specifically on electro acoustics. You come either straight from university or with some years of experience.

As an experienced electro acoustic developer, we expect you to have expertise within Sound Quality, Acoustic measurements, vibro-acoustics, and sound path design. Knowledge from working with electro acoustic or magnetic designs of hearing instruments or other smaller products such as cell phones, headsets or similar is an advantage.

If you are newly educated with a strong desire to start your career within electro acoustics we welcome you as well. You thrive in an environment with a high pace, and you are eager to start working with professional colleagues, using the skills you have acquired through your education. We offer great development opportunities and believe Oticon is a good starting point for an ambitious career.

As a person, you are proud of your profession, curious and a team player by heart. You have good communication skills and enjoy networking and navigating in a project driven, cross-functional organization with several varying projects.

You are fluent in English, as this is our company language.
