We have two important roles both of which require your skills.
What will you do?
  • Design and maintain a modular, extensible architecture of the CPE middleware by translating business needs into technology blocks and modules

  • Research and assess emerging trends and technologies in opensource and technology suppliers to enable your architectural design
  • Closely cooperate with other architects responsible for the cloud systems/BO
  • Propose development processes improvements, new technical solutions and tools
  • Determine operational feasibility by evaluating analysis, problem definition, requirements, solution development and proposed solutions
  • Make informed decisions quickly and take ownership of services and applications at a scale
The results will be one of the most advanced and well-designed digital TV platforms in the marketplace. You can expect to gain a lot of satisfaction from this work and know that your efforts are valued by your colleagues and customers.
Main Requirements which you must have some of:
  • Around 10 years of experience in Digital TV and related technologies
  • Broad knowledge of DTV system architectures and specific specialisation in CPE architecture
  • Excellent people skills, including communicating technical ideas, motivating and negotiating with your team – you embody great consulting skills
  • Good understanding of Internet security protocols, system-wide security protocols, cryptography, PKI, SSL/TLS experience
  • RDK 3.0 knowledge
  • In-depth knowledge of SW development methodologies, and various programming languages (C/C++, JS) with an ability to read code
  • Experience in embedded Linux system internals
  • Excellent written and spoken English and ability to write necessary tech docs such as use cases, sequence diagrams
  • Great analysis, problem decomposition, software design and architecting skills
  • Ability to translate business requirements into architectural framework and design
  • Design of REST APIs
  • Experience in different CPU/SoC architectures ( i.e. MIPS, ARM, IA32, x86 )
  • CA/DRM experience
  • Ability to break down architecture into detailed engineering tasks
  • Hardware and software architecture capability
