Senior Acoustic Engineer, GN Hearing
– use your knowledge of acoustics to change lives.
Would you like to be the mind behind acoustic solutions for our hearing aids?
We offer an outward-looking role where you will collaborate with multiple skill areas on finding the best solutions that will improve the lives of people with hearing problems.
We know sound
Joining Acoustic Development in Ballerup, Denmark, you become part of a group of 13 skilled engineers. We are specialized in everything related to hearing aid acoustics, from transducers to the final product. Our common goal is to provide the very best hearing aid experience for consumers worldwide.
We have acoustic R&D teams in Copenhagen and Xiamen, and in addition to working alongside your colleagues at our Danish HQ, you will collaborate with our development and manufacturing team in Xiamen on maturing devices for manufacturing.
“In our team, we pull together as a unit and focus on collaborating and supporting each other while having an unformal and open minded atmosphere. We develop cutting edge new products, that really helps the end users, while having fun and a good time achieving our goals,” says Manager Jonas Raun Hansen.
Facilitate the best possible sound
You will partake in ongoing technology- and product development projects. This will include development of acoustic solutions for hearing aids, systems verification including directionality, noise reduction, sound quality, vibro-acoustic stability, configuration and production support. The projects require cross-functional collaboration and dedication to developing state-of-the-art.
The tasks of the job will require that you:
understand the customer and end-user needs
understand acoustics and hearing
understand acoustic transducers and the modeling of those, and want to partake in collaboration with suppliers to specify, develop and verify new designs
understand signal processing
mature new ideas into proven concepts that are prototyped and tested
document and present results of acoustic investigations
perform acoustical measurements according to standards
support product configuration and production
As a person you are:
positive and open minded
a team player with the mindset of supporting and helping your colleagues
self-driven with good communication and stakeholder management skills
innovative and creative
structured and fact based
Understand the electroacoustic systems
One of your success criteria is understanding our colleagues’ work within the different skill areas and to develop knowledge of the systems and how everything plays together. Transducers and their integration into the products are some of the key components in the acoustical design. It is therefore an important that you understand the transducers and are able to optimize the performance seen from a system perspective. This will require deep knowledge of electroacoustic modelling as well as understanding of electronics and structural dynamics.
”Your biggest challenge will be to understand the acoustic subset of our hearing aids on a system level and how the electroacoustic work of our team fits together with other disciplines,” explains Jonas.
Collaborative engineer with cross-functional mindset
What is most important for you to succeed in this role, is the combination of acoustics and development work in your skillset and knowledge bank. Furthermore, it is vital that you can familiarize yourself with other specialist expertise areas and communicate and collaborate effectively with colleagues across departments.
• You have a master’s degree within acoustic engineering or similar qualifications
• You have 5+ years’ experience and have worked professionally with acoustic development
• You have experience with/in collaborating in interdisciplinary project teams
• You speak and write English effortlessly
• You are self-driven with good communication skills, and good at collaborating with colleagues and stakeholders
