As such, you will have deep expertise in one or more core video coding technologies, including motion compensation, intra prediction, transform design, entropy coding, loop filtering, deblocking, and rate control. Working knowledge of relevant standards, such as HEVC and H.264/MPEG-AVC, is also preferred.

Excellent written and verbal communication skills are essential to the position, as is an interest and desire to work closely with other video coding researchers both at our client and externally within the MPEG, ITU-T, and JCT-VC standardization committees.

Skill/Knowledge Requirements:
- Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, or related field (MSEE with 3+ years of experience may also be considered).
- Deep knowledge of and passion for video coding algorithms.
- Demonstrated ability to create novel algorithms and solutions.
- Expertise in C and/or C++ in both Linux and Windows environments.
