Qualcomm China

Job Area:

Engineering Group, Engineering Group > Software Engineering

General Summary

  1. Participate in the research of artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithm,

  2. Develop solutions to improve the inference efficiency on Qualcomm snapdragon neural network platform

  3. Improve the prediction accuracy of machine learning. Deliver assigned tasks on schedule with high quality.

  4. Develop and optimize Android Multimedia SW on Qualcomm platforms at Audio/Video/Camera/Display/Virtual Reality

  5. Develop new Multimedia features on Qualcomm platforms

Develops, creates, and modifies general computer applications software or specialized utility programs. Analyzes user needs and develops software solutions. Designs software or customizes software for client use with the aim of optimizing operational efficiency. May analyze and design databases within an application area, working individually or coordinating database development as part of a team. Modifies existing software to correct errors, allow it to adapt to new hardware, or to improve its performance. Analyzes user needs and software requirements to determine feasibility of design within time and cost constraints. Confers with systems analysts, engineers, programmers and others to design system and to obtain information on project limitations and capabilities, performance requirements and interfaces. Stores, retrieves, and manipulates data for analysis of system capabilities and requirements. Designs, develops, and modifies software systems, using scientific analysis and mathematical models to predict and measure outcome and consequences of design. The responsibilities of this role include:

• Working under close supervision.

• Taking responsibility for own work and making decisions with limited impact; Impact of decisions is readily apparent; errors made typically only impact timeline (i.e., require additional time to correct).
