  • Validate hardware during prototype, EVT, and DVT stages in benchtop and system-level tests

Points for

  • BS or MS in Electrical engineering or equivalent discipline/experience
  • Comfort with designing circuit boards with RF components
  • Experience using Altium for board design
  • Familiarity with RF simulation tools (Keysight ADS, Genesys, CST, HFSS, AWR)
  • Familiarity with Spectrum Analyzers and Network Analyzers
  • Four or more years at a product based company

Extra points if

  • You have experience with 802.11a/b/g/n/ac standards and protocols

  • You’ve worked on boards that have microcontrollers or FPGAs on them.
  • You’ve designed filters using both microstrip and lumped elements
  • You have experience making boards with RF laminates, but not afraid to use FR4 at higher frequencies than you should.
  • You’d rather automate testing with a raspberry pi, linux, and python than do the same test over and over again manually

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?

You are considered to have a disability if you have a physical or mental impairment or medical condition that substantially limits a major life activity, or if you have a history or record of such an impairment or medical condition.

Examples of reasonable accommodation include making a change to the application process or work procedures, providing documents in an alternate format, using a sign language interpreter, or using specialized equipment.
