RF Engineer

Senior RF engineer focused on next generation satellite platforms. The role will require design, simulation, and layout of the RF systems. You will collaborate with mechanical and electrical engineers to address power, thermal, performance and any other system design issues. You will help with the design and implementation of the radio communication systems from UHF to X-band to Ka band range.

Requirements

  • Strong fundamentals in RF, electromagnetics, microwave theory and engineering
  • Proven ability to support and criticize RF layout, RF circuit design and component selection.
  • Proven ability to adapt and learn a multitude of skills in order to develop/contribute to the design of a complex system including but not limited to RF Frontend, active RF circuits, transceiver, up/down converters, component level familiarities such as: mixers, switches, RF amplifiers, oscillators, detectors, filters, and other building blocks for space and ground station application
  • Design and troubleshoot RF (UHF, S-Band, X, Ka, or Ku bands) test setups and associated support equipment to support execution of testing strategies
  • Hands on x-band and GPS transceiver design is a plus
  • Create electromagnetic simulation models of hardware (antennas, filters, PCB layout) to design and evaluate performance
  • Conduct market surveys, identify components, suppliers and own technical roadmap for the RF subsystem

Who You are

  • BSEE is required, MS/PhD preferred
  • At least 5 years of relevant hands-on experience
  • Innovative, driven, out of the box thinker, self-motivated to investigate and implement new ideas, and proactive in overcoming obstacles
  • Experience designing, testing, performing RF analysis
  • Working knowledge of modulation and coding techniques
  • Experience with electromagnetic theory and/or RF communication systems
  • Experience in environmental testing such as vibration, shock, thermal, burn-in, and TVAC
  • Very strong communication, teamwork and organizational skills
  • Self-motivated with strong multi-tasking, organizational, communication and documentation skills
