Senior Application Engineer

Job Summary

We are seeking a proactive individual to drive our Model-Based Design products in Signal Processing Systems (e.g. Radar, Communications, and Sensor Systems) design in new and existing markets in Australia New Zealand. In this pre-sales role, you will leverage your experiences to understand and effectively communicate the benefits of MathWorks tools for Signal Processing Systems engineering. You will spend most of your time working with engineers to understand their technical and business challenges and proposing solutions for developing their systems.

This position is based in Adelaide Australia. Expect to travel about 20-30% of the time with trips generally no longer than four week-days. Travel will be mostly within Australia and New Zealand.


The Application Engineer (AE) will use her/his technical knowledge and presentation skills in activities that directly and indirectly boost product sales. These activities include:

- Supporting & interacting directly with customers

The AE will use her/his product knowledge and industry experience to engage prospective customers and demonstrate how MATLAB can help them design and deploy signal processing systems. The AE will also gather feedback and identify industry trends during these engagements to contribute to future development and marketing initiatives.

- Developing product “proof-of-concept” demonstrations

AEs build feature rich product demonstrations providing guidance to customers on how to use software to develop and deploy systems that include baseband processing, RF and Analog-Mixed Signal circuitry, audio, DSP, autonomous systems and Radar algorithms. These demonstrations are the proof that our software tools can solve complex, real-world problems.

- Collaborating with development to impact our products

AEs collaborate and work closely with product development to fill product feature gaps and provide requirements for new features

The AE will use MATLAB, Simulink, Signal Processing, Wavelet, Audio, DSP, Phased Array, and other related toolboxes to:

- Design, analyze, and simulate models across many diverse applications areas including Wireless, High speed Wired Communications and Radar.
- Model RF impairments and algorithms that mitigate them.
- Create application examples that use MathWorks tools and third party tools from Agilent, Cadence and Mentor to demonstrate workflows to customers.
- Participate to publication of articles and delivery of seminars and trade Show presentations
