FPGA Signal Processing Engineer

The Challenge:

Cutting edge data acquisition platforms can generate tremendous volumes of raw sensor data. Booz Allen is seeking an experienced digital design engineer to implement high speed RF signal processing algorithms on a Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) fabric that perform signal processing operations on high speed data channels. The work is close to a critical customer mission that integrates many disciplines in a lab environment.

You Have:

  • Experience as a senior digital design engineer translating signal processing algorithms or techniques into real-time FPGA implementations
  • Experience optimizing FPGA designs to meet timing requirements
  • Experience implementing RF signal processing algorithms including Fourier analysis algorithms, signal correlators, matched filters, and other algorithms commonly used in signal detection
  • Knowledge of modem core design principals
  • Knowledge of digital signal processing fundamentals and how to process noisy channels
  • TS/SCI clearance
  • Bachelor’s degree in EE or Computer Engineering

Nice If You Have:

  • Experience with dataflow design frameworks for Xilinx FPGAs
  • Experience interfacing with high speed memory interfaces
  • Experience in multi-channel coherent RF signal processing
  • Knowledge of RF frontend design, common artifacts they may introduce into signal data, and techniques to minimize their impact on desired signal processing outcomes
  • Master’s degree in EE


Applicants selected will be subject to a security investigation and may need to meet eligibility requirements for access to classified information; TS/SCI clearance is required.
