The engineer must be able to understand requirements, interact with other members of the technical staff, perform software design, software and interface engineering documentation, and design reviews. The engineer must understand the overall engineering process, from design kick-off to production; and, must be capable of interacting with the various disciplines (e.g., systems, electrical, mechanical, test) involved in production of a product. The engineer should be familiar with test equipment and procedures, including the use of oscilloscopes, logic analyzers, and JTAG debuggers. The engineer is responsible for system-level and detailed software design and development.
