The Perceptual Audio Quality TLM sets the direction for and leads a team of Applied Perceptual Audio scientists, engineers and technicians translating user needs and psychoacoustic principles into validated performance targets for the engineering teams by formulating and developing objective metrics, test methodologies, and processes for quantifying perceptual audio quality across all our products.
This role leads the team to take product requirements, key user scenarios, and conduct psychometric based tests to understand the impact of product performance on the real user value and experience of the product.
This role also leads the team to develop meaningful and accurate metrics for quantifying perceptual audio quality as well as processes and novel test methodologies scalable across all FB.
This role plans, implements, and presents strategies on their own and lead projects within the greater TED Audio team as well as works with cross-functional partners in research and product development to understand and prioritize perceptual needs.
This role furthermore leads engineering teams to develop an increasingly sophisticated ML based framework for perceptual evaluation.
15+ years of experience leading sound quality, perceptual audio evaluation and modeling teams.
Expertise in setting up user studies to test audio metrics.
Expertise in relevant statistical analyses and modeling for perceptual data.
Proven track record testing audio in laboratory and real world settings.
Experience to manage programs, resources, and people to scale research, innovation and product development.
Planning and communication skills.
Team management and leadership skills.
Proven track record in building and leading R&D teams.
Technical lead of perceptual evaluation of audio and multi-/cross modal applications (e.g. audio/visual/haptic).
Lead and build world class team to drive robust, efficient and world-class perceptual evaluation methods across research and product/component/algorithm development.
Development of efficient data gathering perceptual evaluation framework for supervised and unsupervised ML.
Collaborate across FRLs multi-disciplinary teams to develop, understand and model consumer preferences.
Lead perceptual aspect of development of ML based predictive model development for different consumer types, for both overall and detailed Quality of Experience (QoE). E.g. consumer, audiophile, expert &/or regional different for specific applications &/or different hearing loss characteristics.
Research and exploration into perceptually based AI algorithm frameworks.
Strive towards developing IP in the above areas.
Collaborate and drive advanced perceptual evaluation research, both internally and with external academic groups.
Publish research results in academic journals, books and international conferences in alignment with technology and product strategies.
Experience in fundamental psychoacoustics, PhD in the field preferred.
