You may not be ready to make a move, but you’re open to exploring your options. We’re planning on growing steadily over the next several years so whether you’re looking now or later we’ll probably have something interesting for you to consider at some point.
Just click APPLY and we'll take care of the rest FPGA Design at a Glance This team is a little different as any FPGA Designer can attest to.
Unlike those ASIC guys We think differently, we see things differently, and we know what we do is what drives pretty much everything around here.
Our block-level simulations and in-system testing prove our Xilinx-based designs and VHDL code and synthetization works perfectly, and our integration with our controller devices and subsystems for our optical sensors is seamless.
We also happen to be experts at running tests.... We work closely with our Design Engineering teams and Manufacturing so that we can verify and implement any design corrections as it relates to advances in design with our opto-
mechanical or electro-optical subsystems. We also work closely with our PCB designers, provide some technical guidance to them and of course, mentor our junior designers We track and report design progress (or technical risks) to our leadership tea and we play a large role in the project planning / how best to resource the team for upcoming projects.
The most significant element of our team is that we offer true dimensionality to the role of an FPGA designer - you aren't put into career-
purgatory by doing one thing. We also do a bit of verification, we've started writing some other code in the likes of Python and C++, we take part in design and new product launches too.
Domain Expertise We Look For Admittedly, expectations on this team are high for a reason. FPGA design and coding is at the core of what we do at L3 WESCAM and how our complex systems operate.
While there are varying degrees of subject matter expertise attached to FPGA architecture and VHDL coding / synthesis and simulation, if you have between 5-
10 years of experience in some of following, you should definitely join our FPGA Design Talent Community for immediate and future opportunities
Skills, Experience and Competencies We Look For While this list is in no particular order - if you are able to identify some of the following within your own inventory of skills and experiences, we would be thrilled if you joined others like you in our talent community.
If you play a musical instrument even better. We have 7 in-house bands that often compete at our own Rib-Fest every summer and other employee parties and we’re looking for a few more bass players, guitar leads or drummers.
Life at L3 WESCAM
This is the most important part. Many companies say that their work is exciting’ or challenging’, or that they work in a fast-paced environment.
Perhaps our definition of those terms is slightly different because we are one of the only companies in the world that produce what we do, have customers like we do, allow our employees to work on the kinds of things we do, and say with certainty that what we do every day directly contributes to protecting lives around the world.
What else can you expect as an L3 WESCAM employee?
By joining our FPGA Talent Community, we’ll keep you up to date on what L3 WESCAM is working on, new developments in business, and more information about the team and what it means to work here.
You’ll also be the first to hear about new positions coming up that we hope you might be interested in. As L3-WESCAM is a supplier to several national military and defense agencies, we are bound by the Canadian Controlled Goods Program.
Every L3 employee must be CGP-Certified, of which certification requires extensive background screening that L3 Wescam will manage on your behalf.
