Job description

Our Development Center in Graz is working on leading edge security technologies for the connected world. Now we are growing in the field of microcontroller applications for motor control, home appliances and factory automation in deep-submicron technologies. Therefore we are establishing a new team and are looking for the best talents to join us.

This engineering position involves architecture and development of microcontroller (MCU) based embedded signal processing and control systems solutions for power conversion / motor control applications.

Your new role includes:

  • System Knowledge: develop and apply system expertise in a given application area to define next generation MCU devices and associated enablement
  • Control Systems: analyze and verify advanced control systems for target applications
  • Signal Processing: understanding of algorithm requirements to estimate motor parameters from sensors (e.g. shunt resistors, hall effect sensors), acceleration sensors (e.g. accelerometers), flux sensors (e.g.flux gate) and to intelligently incorporate sensor data into embedded motor control application areas
  • Hardware Design: define analog front end hardware requirements to interface sensor and gate driver signal paths to MCUs and work with board designers to develop prototype systems
  • Architecture: provide HW/SW partitioning analysis for most efficient system implementation. Development of real-time MCU processor solutions, which include understanding of *MCU HW architectures to configure necessary HW components needed to implement a given solution
  • Customer Interactions: work with business units to engage with customers, demonstrate system knowledge and provide system support
  • Intellectual Property : generate patents to protect ICW Technology and Innovation position in the application areas
  • Emerging Technologies: monitor competitive landscape for performance benchmark relative to competition and find new applications/opportunities
  • Analyzation of competitor landscape and identifying areas of differentiation


As a true team player, you treat your colleagues with respect and trust. You can convince with a structured and precise way of working. You are a good networker and have strong communication and solid problem solving skills and a strong focus on quality. You like to collaborate with different stakeholders.

You are best equipped for this task if you have:

  • University Degree (Master) Electrical or Computer Engineering or comparable
  • Signal processing algorithm design experience that uses electro-mechanical sensors (e.g. resistors, hall effect sensors, accelerometers, flux gate) or position sensors (e.g. encoders)
  • Proficient knowledge of Matlab/Simulink to develop system simulations that include sensor models and circuit components to analyze the potential HWSW solutions that include analog to digital converters, digital to analog or PWM signals.
  • Familiarity with analog circuit simulation tools (Spice, PLECS, etc) and basic digital design principles (RTL level gate simulations and design)
  • Experience in resolving differences between simulation and real time prototype designs to demonstrate value in the proposed solution
  • Proficient knowledge of C programming language, real-time embedded software/operating system and experience with SW development tools (e.g. CCS/Eclipse) and MCU programming environments
  • Fluent English skills with German as a plus

This position is subject to the collective agreement for workers and employees in the electrical and electronics industry, employment group I-J (https://www.feei.at/leistungen/informations-service/mindestlohne-und-gehalter-2020). A higher payment is negotiable depending on your expertise and skills.
