Enigma People Solutions is seeking a Senior Analog/Mixed-Signal Design Engineer for our high growth client’s newly opened Advanced Design Centre. The successful candidate will play a critical role in building the next generation of LiDAR systems for autonomous vehicles, UAVs, industrial automation and other applications.

So why join this company?
Our client is passionate about building the next generation of LiDAR systems for autonomous vehicles, industrial robotics, UAVs and many other applications. Their core technology – protected by over 200 patents – enables a simple, high-performance, solid state solution, with no moving parts, that can uniquely meet the rigorous performance, reliability and cost requirements of the automotive industry. Backed by leading VC firms and strategic investors and have developed partnerships with leading automotive and robotics customers. They are building an innovative, world-class company that designs and builds the world’s best 3D sensors. 


This position is a research and development focused role for an innovative and Senior Analog/Mixed-Signal Design Engineer who is keen to get involved in all aspects of LiDAR sensor development in a start-up environment. The successful candidate will be responsible for Matlab modelling of systems for LiDAR applications, development custom analog/mixed signal blocks for LiDAR sensors, circuit definition and block level simulations and documentation. You will also be working with layout of analog/mixed-signal blocks and pixel arrays, top-level mixed-signal simulations (VerilogD, VerilogAMS, etc.) and defining digital control blocks and implementation.


  • Strong, in-depth understanding of analog & mixed signal IC design
  • 5+ years’ experience in the modelling, design, simulation and layout of custom IC blocks
  • Solid understanding of design trade-offs e.g. noise, power, area and speed
  • Experience in some of the following: ADCs (SAR/Sigma-Delta/Single-Slope), PLL, DLL, image-sensor pixels, PGA and TDC
  • Have seen multiple ICs into mass production with experience in test development
  • Have experience running top-level simulations of analog & digital blocks up to chip-level
  • Basic digital design from Verilog/VHDL to place and route for digital control blocks
  • Experience of bench testing, characterisation and debug of analog/mixed-signal circuits ideally with firmware development for FPGA based evaluation systems
  • Direct experience in high-speed image sensor or ROIC design and evaluation is highly desirable
  • Good verbal and written technical communications skills

Personal Attributes

  • Reliable, proactive and adaptable
  • Self-motivated, resourceful, inventive and well-organized
  • Ability to build trust, creditability and rapport in a skilful manner
