The Acoustical Verification team
As our new Acoustical Verification Engineer, you’ll join a small team within the Applied Audiological Research department that is part of our R&D center based in Lynge, Denmark.
The Acoustical Verification team's core task is to deliver calibrated acoustical measurements in an efficient and high-quality manner.
In this role you’ll be responsible for:
- Acoustical verification measurements during early development of new platform features in neighboring R&D departments.
- Early testing of hearing aid fitting features during development and before features are implemented in the fitting software.
- Acoustical system verification before listening trials with final (hearing aid) formfactors.
- Acoustical measurements as part of bug-investigations and/or fitting optimizations.
- Deliver acoustical calibrated measurements/data to other teams in the R&D department.
- Acoustical feature and system verification of fitting software, apps, and devices. Done manually, semi-automated, and/or automated.
- Continuous development of the test domain through optimization of test strategies, test routines, and test tools/automation.
- General service/support team for the R&D department.
Key SW and HW tools:
- Every team member has their own calibrated acoustic measurement system: Brüel & Kjær LAN-XI front end with Pulse Labshop Windows SW.
- We use VB scripting for Pulse Labshop automation and we use self-made MatLab tools for plotting, comparing, and evaluating measurements.
You are an ideal candidate for the job, if you are an engineer in acoustics or similar background and have knowledge and experience in acoustic measurements, testing, or verification of acoustic systems with or without associated software. General knowledge of electronics, software, and testing is an advantage and you might even have specific experience with hearing aids.
- Experience in the use of calibrated acoustical measurement systems.
- Proven experience with version control systems. For example GIT and/or SVN.
- Your general pc skills are excellent and you are proficient in pc troubleshooting.
- Experience in writing test plans, test specifications, test reports, and knowledge of test automatization tools.
- Service-minded with the ability to switch to a higher priority task - even if it means putting your active task on hold.
- Focused on quality and persistence with a pragmatic approach and an ability to prioritize tasks.
- Ability to take responsibility for your own tasks, but also know that the best results are achieved through teamwork. That's why you're collaborative, flexible, and open to support your colleagues when needed.
- Eager to learn from your colleagues but are also prepared and motivated to do self-study as well.
- Innovative mind willing to question the status quo, but also prepared to do some repetitive work (although we strive to automate these tasks).
We offer you a job that requires collaboration with many different colleagues and that gives you a good insight into the complexity of both our HW and SW products. A good atmosphere is important for us, so you will be surrounded by helpful colleagues who care about each other.
Among other benefits, we offer a favorable pension scheme with health insurance, a sports and arts club, and good canteen facilities. Our Danish headquarter is based in an environmentally friendly and modern facility in Lynge, north of Copenhagen, Denmark.
