About Baraja

Baraja is changing the world of self-driving cars through the invention of a new type of LiDAR called Spectrum-Scan™ that delivers ultra-high performance at high resolution, even at incredibly far distances. Today, Baraja LiDAR is already deployed in multiple verticals, working with global automotive and industrial partners.

Originally founded in Sydney, Australia, we also have offices in San Francisco, China and Europe. We are funded by Sequoia, Blackbird and Main Sequence Ventures and we are excited to continue growing the team, so if you are looking for a fast-paced, dynamic role in a start-up we are keen to hear from you!


The Opportunity

We are looking for a Signal Processing Engineer to join our growing Technology Development team, inventing and designing technology to be in next-generation LiDAR. Reporting to the Platform Engineering Manager, you will be responsible for designing
, implementing, and deploying advanced signal processing algorithms for the next-gen automotive LiDAR. The role is split into design, verification, and testing (80%), and technical design reviews (20%).


Inside the Job

·       Design, verify and test signal processing algorithms to satisfy requirements for the next-generation LIDAR development

·       Perform simulations to support investigation of proposed algorithms

·       Design and recommend improvements to all digital signal processes and recommend improvements or alternatives to better system performance


About You

·       2+ years’ experience in algorithm development or signal processing.

·       Solid understanding of topics like linear algebra, statistics, machine learning,  or adaptive filters etc.

·       Hands on experience related to digital signal processors and/or algorithm design in one or more areas related to radar, lidar, depth cameras, audio or other signal processing related fields.

·       Full Australian Working Rights.



·       Experience in Vivado, Xilinx IPs and Xilinx IP integrator and Xilinx

·       Experience with hardware bring-up, debug and measurements.

·       Experience in working with digital signal processors, microcontrollers and FPGAs.

·       B.S. or higher degree in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Mechatronics Engineering, or relevant field.

·       Previous start-up experience in the same or similar role.

·       Experience in automotive, sensors, or calibration, especially LiDAR.


Be part of a high-performance team

We work toward our goals by being in constant communication in person and through a range of technologies. We also have big ears for feedback from customers to help us continually improve the Baraja experience. We are pretty good at what we do (but definitely not perfect), so you’ll be learning from and working with a top-flight team on a mission to be better every day.


What matters to us

We believe that our culture is one of our most important assets and we’ve wrapped it up with three key values that we do our best to live up to every day:  

·       Hustle to deliver on hard and meaningful problems - Passion to achieve. Resilience & learning. What's the next challenge?

·       Develop sustained high performance - It’s not enough to design amazing products, we need to design the means to manufacture these products, at scale.

·       Build the machine that builds the machine - Great teams make great things. They also respectfully challenge each other to reach the next milestone.
