  • 7+ years experience executing and defining test cases for communication systems
  • Ability to characterize, test, debug, and verify Wi-Fi, LTE, CANbus, communication protocols, and ethernet networks
  • Experience in identifying and debugging issues related to desense, SNR, co-channel interference, and coexistence
  • Experience in Wireshark (or OmniPeek) to identify issues within a packet capture
  • Experience with using digital attenuators, RF boxes, combiners, rate vs. range, iPerf, and associated test tools
  • Experience using Ixia or Spirent network testers
  • Experience testing and characterizing time synchronization protocols (ie: 802.1AS)
  • Experience writing test plans, defining test cases, and assessing risk
  • Bachelor's degree in engineering or equivalent real world experience
  • Outstanding communication and written skills

  • Experience developing in C, C++
  • Ability to write and document clear Python code
  • GitHub and git experience
  • Experience using GPS/GNSS simulators
  • Experience with automated test frameworks (e.g., Pytest, Robot Framework), Jira, svn/git, and Continuous Integration systems (e.g., Jenkins, CircleCI)
  • Experience testing medical devices, aviation, automotive, or other safety critical applications
  • Experience testing systems that utilize complex communications systems in industries such as cellular, computer, consumer electronics, aerospace/military, vehicle component manufacturing, or other similar industries
