Job Description

MaxLinear is seeking a Senior Staff Communications Systems Engineer to join our Carlsbad, CA (North San Diego County) design center. You will be working with a team of world-class communications systems engineers designing advanced broadband communications SOCs. These chips integrate complete PHY and MAC layers (including broadband RF/analog circuits, digital ASIC, and CPU subsystems) on a single die, and are being designed in deep-submicron CMOS processes for use in next-generation wireless, optical, and wireline systems.

Working within a mid-sized company environment will offer you oversight of the entire product development cycle, while fully challenging your ability to develop complex block-level and system-level algorithms, collaborating closely with other engineering teams to make the overall product successful.

Required Skills

We are looking for engineers with strong L1-L3 algorithm design experience. The position requires a strong understanding of implementing OFDM and single-carrier modem systems as well as digital front-end blocks such as AGC, and experience architecting and specifying all portions of the system. You should have a track record of innovation and an interest in working in a dynamic and fast-paced environment.

Qualifications required for this position include

  • Strong communication theoretical grounding
  • Experience in PHY modem architectures and algorithms, including projects which implement them in silicon
  • Working knowledge of MAC and networking layers
  • Hands-on debugging and testing of complete communications systems
  • Broad technical knowledge with the ability to learn quickly
  • Masters in Electrical Engineering with 5 years of experience or Ph.D. with 2 years of experience

Company Overview

MaxLinear is a global, New York Stock Exchange-traded company (NYSE: MXL) where the entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well. We are a fabless system-on-chip product company, designing highly integrated, radio-frequency, and mixed-signal Communications ICs for broadband and infrastructure applications.

We hire the best people in the world and engage them in some of the most exciting opportunities in our broadband and infrastructure markets. Our growth has come from innovative, bold approaches to solving some of the world’s most challenging communication technology problems.

MaxLinear began by developing the World’s first high-performance TV tuner chip using standard CMOS process technology. Others said we couldn’t achieve the extremely high performance requirements using CMOS, but we proved them wrong and achieved enduring global market leadership with our designs. Since then, we’ve developed a full line of products for satellite communications, cable modems, and terrestrial TV; diversified into high speed products addressing Datacom applications such as 400 Gbps fiber-optic interconnect chips for high-speed networks; and MoCA technology for home networking.

Our headquarters is in Carlsbad, near San Diego, California. We also have major design centers in Irvine and San Jose, CA; in Vancouver, Canada; in Valencia, Spain; and in Bangalore, India.

We have approximately 800 employees, a substantial majority of whom have engineering degrees, and include masters and Ph.D. graduates from many of the premiere universities around the world. Our engineers thrive on innovation, outstanding execution, outside-the-box thinking, nimbleness, and collaboration. Together, we form a high-energy business team that is focused on building great products.
