Senior Research Engineer

NL Acoustics is a global award-winning growth company where you can easily move your career forward, develop your expertise in your desired direction, and turn your ideas into real products. We design and manufacture unique, easy-to-use, comprehensive acoustic solutions for predictive maintenance. Our solutions use sound to locate faulty machines and components in power grids and compressed air systems, solving our clients’ problems in over 40 countries.

We are now seeking a Senior Research Engineer to reinforce our enthusiastic, welcoming team and to support our fast growth. Our multidisciplinary professionals share a passion to work with the latest sound-based technologies, challenge themselves, and grow their know-how. As a company, we are driven by our shared goal to turn sound into value.

Who We Are Looking for:

We are looking for a Senior Research Engineer to help us develop our cutting-edge algorithms in acoustics to the next level. You will join our team of over 20 people in Helsinki, Finland.

You will be working in product development, developing advanced features and algorithms for our next generation market-leading acoustic products.

In your day-to-day tasks, you will mostly work with Python and C++, with a strong focus on short development cycles, quick validation of assumptions, and iterative improvements. Once in a while, you’ll tinker around with our audio measurement and test setups. You’ll come up with various ideas and assumptions on how to process the audio data our products gather, or how to computationally simulate situations that allow us to validate certain assumptions. You are the person who knows how to transform the data we gather into something as valuable as possible for our customers. The result of your work will help our customers solve real problems such as reducing wasted energy in factories and improving the reliability of electricity transmission.

Depending on your background and interests, your tasks might also include working together with our customers. In these cases, you’ll be able to explain the things we are working on in such a way that someone with no background in acoustics can understand them.

We Require that You:

  • Have a deep understanding of how sound behaves and how it can be processed
  • Have at least a Master’s degree with a strong emphasis on Acoustics and Audio signal processing
  • Have at least a few years of applicable work experience
  • Have at least moderate programming experience and knowledge
  • Have a strong result-oriented attitude
  • Have a creative mind
  • Are genuinely interested in acoustics
  • Are willing to proactively learn new things
  • Understand the concept of beamforming 

We Appreciate It if You:

  • Are proficient in filter design principles
  • Know C/C++
  • Prefer Python over Matlab, or at least are prepared to switch to Python
  • Tend to think outside the box

Additional Skills that Might be Useful:

  • Machine learning
  • Statistics

What We Offer You:

Flexible working hours and location: we are open to you working from home as well (during the Covid-19 pandemic, we are mostly working from home).

Free office snacks, beverages, and Edenred lunch benefit.

Company healthcare: We offer an extensive healthcare package through Terveystalo.

Work near public transportation: Our production facilities are in Kannelmäki and our office is in Pasila, both only a few minutes away from local railway stations and other public transportation.

Meaningful work: Our solutions solve concrete problems and have a significant impact all over the world.

People: We are a diverse team of professionals who love their work and working together.

Self-development: We offer an annual learning budget for everyone to spend on their professional development.
