Job Description:

ENSCO Avionics supports challenging engineering programs on a broad range of aerospace platforms for fixed wing and rotorcraft/helicopter programs.

In today’s modern aerospace engineering environment, a continuously increasing ratio of controls computing is being implemented using complex HDL-based programmable logic devices in order to produce faster, smaller, lighter control capabilities while increasing reliability.

Programmable HW components are being more and more frequently applied in both commercial and military aircraft and helicopter safety-critical systems. ENSCO engineers are using the latest tools with cutting edge techniques and technologies to support control system development and regulatory compliance that are fundamental to safe development and operation of these vehicles. We are always looking for the right people, like you, to help us do it.


Do you have experience with firmware development or verification and want to be a part of this exciting team? ENSCO is looking for engineers experienced in developing and verifying HDL for complex programmable devices to the most rigorous safety standards. Our tasks are full life cycle, including requirements generation, HDL design/generation, firmware design analysis, simulation, and final hardware testing. The design is verified using automated scripts with special test equipment and simulation software such as Questa. The design, test cases, and final documentation are controlled with configuration management tools such as Synergy, Dimensions or SVN. Requirements and traceability are managed in DOORS.

If you have the skills, experience, and desire to join our talented team and contribute to the needs of today’s modern aircraft, we want to talk to you about this opportunity.


Qualifications Required (Skills):

  • U.S. Citizenship required
  • Some formal academic/technical training with a minimum of 6 months experience
  • Academic or hands-on experience in the following:
    • HDL code generation
    • HDL simulation and testing using ModelSim/Questa or similar toolset


Qualifications Desired:

  • Familiar with requirement-based testing
  • Familiar with DO-254 processes and means of compliance
  • Experience writing HDL Functional requirements and defining requirements-based tests.
  • Experience using IBM DOORS.
