Audio Systems Engineer

| Somerville

Owl Labs is hiring an Audio Systems Engineer to grow our audio team and join our cross-functional development team.  The ideal candidate has experience testing and tuning communication device audio systems and can analyze results and debug issues.  You can expect the opportunity to grow to help design and improve future audio systems.

Owl Labs’ mission is to solve a problem we’ve all experienced: meetings suck, and they are especially painful for the remote participants on the other side of the call. Considering the rapid growth in remote and distributed work, this is a perfectly timed problem for Owl Labs to solve. The market is hungry for products and content that make remote and distributed work better.

With $22.3M funding from Spark Capital, Matrix Partners, and Playground Global, Owl Labs has created the Meeting Owl, a 360° smart video conferencing camera that sits in the center of the table and uses robotics algorithms to automatically highlight different people as they talk. After launching the product in June 2017, thousands of companies have purchased the Meeting Owl, saying it offers the most natural and inclusive meeting experience they’ve ever seen.

In this role, you will impact some of the company’s most important product development goals.

 

Skills & Requirements:

 

  • BS/MS in Computer Science, Engineering, or related field
  • Proficiency in C and C++, and ability to develop clean well-documented modular code
  • 3-5 years testing and tuning communication device audio systems (e.g. cell phones, conference room phones)
  • Familiarity with audio concepts surrounding acoustic systems containing microphones and speakers
  • Experience with tuning and troubleshooting conferencing signal processing algorithms such as equalization, dynamic range control, echo cancellation, and noise suppression
  • Experience with audio digital signal processing concepts.
  • Experience with version control and bug tracking systems
  • Strong communication skills, appreciation of documentation, and co-work & customer empathy

 

Nice to Haves:

 

  • Experience with embedded systems, particularly embedded Linux
  • Experience with embedded software development principles and procedures
  • Experience as deep technical support for customer support for mass market products
  • Experience writing Audio DSP algorithms

An Insider's view of Owl Labs

What's something quirky about your company?

We practice what we preach. Employees work at our Somerville HQ, across the US, and often are a hybrid mix of in-office and remote. We all work hard, and so we believe in working whenever you're at your best.

Rebecca

VP Marketing

What are some things you learned at the company?

This is my first startup, and I expected that the pace would be fast. I've also learned how to remove barriers, navigate processes, and anticipate others' needs to keep things moving quickly and efficiently.

Amy

Head of Operations

What is your vision for the company?

I've witnessed the gaps in technology that make it exceptionally hard for remote participants to be seen, heard and most importantly, understood. I'm thankful to be working with the extraordinary team at Owl Labs to bring high fidelity collaboration to life and making the future of work a tangible reality.
