MediaTek (MTK Wireless Limited)

Protocol Development Engineer

As MediaTek’s Protocol Stack Development Engineer, you will use your understanding of 3GPP specifications to implement new network features in the simulator and to debug complex network/handset interoperability issues.

The Role

MediaTek has a great opportunity for a proven Protocol Stack Development Engineer to come and join us as part of our Cambourne, Cambridge site (UK). As the successful candidate, you will become part of a dedicated group responsible for the validation of the very latest 3GPP handset protocols. Currently including 3G, 4G and NB-IoT R13, and moving to R14 and 5G in the future. As part of our ongoing mission to deliver effective and efficient protocol validation methodologies, the group has developed an in-house network simulator which requires development of these protocols running on a Windows platform.

As MediaTek’s Protocol Stack Development Engineer, you will use your understanding of 3GPP specifications to implement new network features in the simulator and to debug complex network/handset interoperability issues. Our goal is to find and fix all protocol issues on host before the tests are run on hardware, whilst keeping the protocols conformant through continuous regression testing. Working closely with other Network Simulator Protocol Developers, Test Case Writers and Handset Protocol Developers, you will effectively analyze and solve many challenging problems at the leading edge of wireless communications. Solving difficult and demanding issues will therefore be a key motivator for you.
