**** NRW, Ger­many • 2000 – 2012
Major soft­ware com­pa­ny work­ing in the elec­tron­ic design automa­tion (EDA) indus­try. The com­pa­ny has more than 1100 employ­ees and was acquired by *** in 2012.

Prod­uct Engi­neer / Senior Appli­ca­tions Engi­neer
Con­sult­ed with major cor­po­rate clients util­is­ing *** soft­ware, includ­ing Intel, Infi­neon, Toshi­ba, and LG, train­ing their employ­ees in new design tech­niques and imple­ment­ing pro­to­type algo­rithms designed to improve the func­tion­al­i­ty of their exist­ing sys­tems. Act­ed as sub­ject mat­ter expert on all top­ics relat­ed to soft­ware and hard­ware devel­op­ment, includ­ing instruct­ing devel­op­ers on best prac­tices for imple­ment­ing new fea­tures and improv­ing lega­cy pro­grams. Ran bench­marks, wrote prod­uct spec­i­fi­ca­tions, and gave demon­stra­tions of new prod­uct capa­bil­i­ties that enabled the com­pa­ny to increase sales and win new cus­tomers.

High­lights & Achieve­ments:
• Played a sig­nif­i­cant role in the group hon­oured with the company’s “Best Team” award for the devel­op­ment of tech­nol­o­gy capa­ble of pro­vid­ing fea­tures for com­plet­ing the phys­i­cal design of huge ICs with a min­i­mum of man­pow­er.
• Con­sis­tent­ly pro­mot­ed up the “tech­ni­cal lad­der” from Mem­ber of Tech­ni­cal Staff (equiv­a­lent to Tech­ni­cal Man­ag­er) to Senior Mem­ber of Tech­ni­cal Staff (equiv­a­lent to Tech­ni­cal Direc­tor) to Prod­uct Engi­neer, and reward­ed for sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tions to the company’s goals and rep­u­ta­tion for excel­lence.
• Cred­it­ed with mak­ing a major con­tri­bu­tion to the clos­ing of mul­ti-mil­lion dol­lar con­tracts by pro­vid­ing excel­lent cus­tomer sup­port and invalu­able assis­tance to the sales team dur­ing all phas­es of the con­tract nego­ti­a­tion process, includ­ing sav­ing a major deal with Mar­vell Tech­nol­o­gy by quick­ly pro­vid­ing a solu­tion to a major prob­lem dur­ing the deci­sion process.
• Worked direct­ly with cus­tomers to opti­mise their work­flow, short­en devel­op­ment times, and deploy new fea­tures and tools, lead­ing to improved cus­tomer rela­tion­ships and increased cor­po­rate prof­its.
• Coor­di­nat­ed Research and Devel­op­ment resources in order to dis­cov­er solu­tions to high-pro­file tech­ni­cal chal­lenges fac­ing the depart­ment, suc­cess­ful­ly achiev­ing crit­i­cal bench­marks despite short turn-around times.
• Pre­sent­ed and demon­strat­ed projects to man­agers, prospec­tive clients, and oth­er stake­hold­ers at con­fer­ences, inter­nal sem­i­nars, and cus­tomer work­sites, dur­ing both pre and post-sale activ­i­ty peri­ods, sup­port­ing cus­tomers at all stages of soft­ware deploy­ment.

*** TECHNOLOGIES, Munich • 1996 – 2000
ASIC Design Engi­neer
Led the devel­op­ment and imple­men­ta­tion of major project ini­tia­tives in the telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions field for the Research and Devel­op­ment divi­sion of ***. Man­aged teams of engi­neers from project orig­i­na­tion through final deliv­ery, ensur­ing all cus­tomer spec­i­fi­ca­tions and project mile­stones were achieved. Analysed cus­tomer data, over­saw patent sub­mis­sion process, and coor­di­nat­ed cor­po­rate resources in order to exceed cus­tomer expec­ta­tions while keep­ing projects on sched­ule and on bud­get.

High­lights & Achieve­ments:
• Suc­cess­ful­ly sub­mit­ted com­plex patent appli­ca­tion for an ana­logue cir­cuit used for reduc­ing PLL jit­ter in high speed data/clock recov­ery units, secur­ing a valu­able tech­ni­cal asset for the com­pa­ny.
• Devel­oped a test bench gen­er­a­tion sys­tem for speed­ing up ver­i­fi­ca­tion, com­plet­ing final project on sched­ule despite tight dead­lines.

1992 – 1996, Munich
Research and Devel­op­ment Engi­neer
Designed sys­tem archi­tec­ture and pro­gram­ming appli­ca­tions for one of Europe’s most pres­ti­gious appli­ca­tion-ori­ent­ed research organ­i­sa­tions. Col­lab­o­rat­ed with Siemens to cre­ate the tech­ni­cal spec­i­fi­ca­tions for the SARE5 chip, ran log­ic syn­the­sis using Syn­op­sys Design Com­pil­er, and gen­er­at­ed test bench­es and stim­u­lus. Cre­at­ed code in VHDL and Ver­ilog, coor­di­nat­ed RTL/be­hav­ioural/­gate-lev­el sim­u­la­tions, and pro­grammed tech­ni­cal­ly-com­plex pro­grams in C and C++.

High­lights & Achieve­ments:
• Intro­duced a new ASIC design method­ol­o­gy to the Siemens HL team and devel­oped MPEG-2 decoder tech­nol­o­gy IC, con­tribut­ing to impor­tant advances in com­mu­ni­ca­tions tech­nol­o­gy.
• Designed more than 60% of the IC put out by a team of 5, play­ing a sig­nif­i­cant role in the organisation’s abil­i­ty to build a rep­u­ta­tion as a leader in the field of semi­con­duc­tor tech­nol­o­gy.
