Description

Xperi invents, develops and delivers technologies that enable extraordinary experiences. We make entertainment more entertaining, and smart devices smarter.

From the home to the car to everywhere in between, managing content and connections in a way that is smart, immersive, and personal is precisely what Xperi’s technologies do.

Our inventions are foundational to the global entertainment ecosystem and our products and data improve every aspect of the digital entertainment experience, from choice to consumption.

Content markets are changing, fast. Consumers face a simultaneously expanding and fragmenting set of choices. Xperi technology cuts through the chaos, putting us at the forefront of fast-moving trends in streaming, digital entertainment, and AI applications – in any environment.

Xperi is at the heart of extraordinary experiences.

We can’t wait to show you what’s next. 

In this role you will  be responsible for defining the architecture of  embedded machine-learning based audio and imaging applications running on advanced edge AI platforms.

You will

  • Fulfil an Applications Architecture leadership role in a team working on embedded application development, leveraging cutting edge Machine Learning algorithms running on edge inference platforms.
  • Work closely with our business development teams  to understand customer requirements and translate these into technical specification documentation.
  • Architect application solutions from initial concept to technical implementation plans, to cover ML network choices, software application architectures
  • Be responsible for application performance and power consumption running on our in house neural network inference processor.
  • Review key technical limitations of the current solutions and the dependencies between the different components on the platform. Rearchitect where required for simplicity, reuse, and optimised performance and power.
  • Design and develop internal and external APIs for the applications.
  • Identify third-party technologies that can be leveraged for solving problems and delivering key components in an application.
