    Job Summary :

  • Looking for a motivated Software Test Engineer to facilitate test & validation activities for 802.11 wireless communications components for NXP Semiconductor wireless network products.
  • In this position, the candidate will work on a team responsible for defining test requirements and test procedures. The candidate will be responsible for execution of these testcases and tracking of Wi-Fi / Bluetooth product quality.
  • This may include automation related to testing various aspects of the product including functional, performance, stress, use case interoperability, and industry standard conformance test cases.

  • The candidate will work closely with development engineers, other validation engineers, application engineers and marketing personnel to understand the specifics of the product, its requirements and its intended usage to develop in-depth validation test plans and execute these test plans independently.
  • Key Challenges :

  • Working on networking protocols and in particular wireless requires a strong understanding of the protocols used in order to troubleshoot issues.
  • There are a number of tools available however being able to use them and make sense of the gigabytes of data from these tools requires understanding of the protocols used that will come over time.

  • Looking through gigabits of sniffer traces can be challenge however once again having a good understanding of the protocol will help narrow down what one needs to look for in a large sniffer trace file making problem solving easier over time.
  • Wireless testing can be a challenge as RF properties change across different materials, (walls, car bodies, metal objects, etc.
  • and the behavior changes in the presence of other RF signals, (interference) making it harder to control and troubleshoot.

    Cross functional aspects :

  • Working in the chip industry like NXP will expose you to software, firmware and all kinds of hardware resource experts.
  • The position will require interfacing with software developers, firmware engineers, SoC design engineers.

  • The position requires testing software and firmware to enable a wireless SOC that resides within a product. This involves getting familiar not only with wireless protocols but also OSes like Linux, Android, Apple IOS, Windows, RTOS and on various different platforms in different environments.
  • A test engineering position may not sound interesting at first but it’s the central point where you interface with design engineers to understand the product, software engineers to understand the firmware, marketing to figure out use case scenarios, sales to help sell the product and customers to understand how they use it and improve on it.
  • This is a very exciting position to be in where you are centrally positioned and gain knowledge in all or any area you choose to get into later on.

    Job Qualifications :

  • The candidate must possess a Bachelor of Science in E.E. or C.S.
  • Additional qualifications include : The candidate should have a good understanding of wired and wireless networking in general.
  • Understanding of IP networking protocols like DHCP, IPv4, IPv6, DHCP, TCP, UDP is required.A good understanding of networking protocols like TCP / IP, Quality of Service (QoS), 802.

    1x security, (WPA2-AES, EAP-TLS, EAP-TTLS, EAP-MsCHAP) is required.Good understanding of Wi-Fi 802.11 protocols and the ability to troubleshoot is a plus.

    Familiarity with features Apple Play, Wi-Fi-Direct / P2P, Miracast, TDLS is a plus.Candidate should also be familiar with tools like Azimuth Adept-n, Veriwave, Light point VSA.

    Experience in scripting languages like Python or Perl is required.The candidate must have a strong understanding of wireless 802.

    11 deployments and testing methodologies and be able to apply them consistently.Strong written and verbal communications including the ability to document test plans, test results and to interpret test results into actionable recommendations.

    Job location :

  • 350 Holger Way, San Jose, CA
