WiFi is the new electricity. Outside of the smartphone, it’s the technology we depend on the most; the foundation for the modern home. It makes our favorite experiences – Netflix, Spotify, FaceTime – come to life. Without it, almost nothing works. But at best, WiFi is like death by a thousand cuts: dead zones, painful setup, embarrassing passwords, equipment that’s a major eyesore. At worst, it fails completely – just as you’re trying to send that critical file to your boss or firing up the Sonos for your dinner party. eero is fixing all of this. It’s not easy, which is why we’ve built a world-class team and culture. We all believe deeply in what we’re doing, and, as importantly, enjoy doing it together.
Job Description: Working with the Antenna lead engineer for the next generation of products, the engineer will work closely with antenna manufacturers to develop low-cost high-performance designs in a variety of mediums (FPC, stamped, LDS and PCB). In addition, the engineer will be responsible for an antenna product integration and testing as well as assisting in RF system analysis (receiver de-sense, in-house testing). The engineer will also be an active participant in the antenna and product manufacture. The lead will set up and monitor over-the-air test stations at the overseas contract manufacturing facility. Analyzing data and suggesting test improvements will be a key part of the role.
What you’ll do:
Architect antennas for the next generation multi-antenna mesh-networking equipment.
Work with Electrical Engineering, RF Design, ID, and Product team members to conceptualize, define, design, build, and test new products.
Perform design validation, verification, and characterization for first prototypes, sub- assemblies, and the final product.
Manage external antenna resources teams.
Team with operations to produce high-quality manufacturing process
We’re looking for someone who:
Drives what matters. You never lose sight of the critical path and can evangelize others to follow it.

Strong understanding of Antenna design techniques
Has demonstrated experience with Antenna simulation tools.
Developed antennas for consumer products.
Experience with contracting manufacturing processes and practices.
