Senior Radio Frequency (RF) Design Engineer: SLC, UT - Amazing Relo Package
Very well respected employer
Experience developing RF front-end hardware for high-data-rate communication systems. The RF Design Engineer will be working as a key member of a high-energy RF design team with a focus on developing RF front-end hardware. This is an excellent opportunity for a senior engineer looking for their next step, and an opportunity to be a part of an innovative organization. JOB DESCRIPTION
Responsibilities will include, but are not limited to:
RF circuit design & analysis
RF hardware development
RF circuit card design and PWB layout
Supporting development of system architecture
Deriving RF hardware design requirements from system-level specifications
Testing & debugging hardware
Generating technical documentation
Estimating RF hardware design tasks, identifying risks, and planning development
Conducting internal/external design reviews
Giving presentations to client customers
Leading or working with cross-functional teams on new technology development
Interact with internal and external engineering teams
Mentoring other engineers QUALIFICATIONS
This position requires a BSEE or MSEE degree and at least 10 - 15 years of direct work experience in RF design and application of advanced RF engineering principles.
Candidate must have an academia background in electro-magnetic (EM) and RF/microwave theory.
Good verbal, written communication, and excellent analytical skills are essential for this position.
Ability to work independently, as well as direct and coordinate work of multi-disciplinary engineering teams to assure the successful development of RF systems and assemblies.
Experience designing RF CCA`s operating at frequencies ranging from UHF through E-band. Design activities will include frequency synthesizers, Up/down converters, front-end electronics and other RF electronics for various antenna tracking techniques.
Experience with a 3-D and/or 2.5-D RF modeling tools such as CST Microwave Studio, Ansoft HFSS, AWR Microwave Office or ADS is a plus
Candidate must understand the critical performance characteristics of passive and active RF components such as Amplifiers, Oscillators, Attenuators, Mixers and Filters. An understanding of how these characteristics relate to a communication system`s performance is a plus.
Candidate must have a working understanding and knowledge of S-parameters (matching networks, casce analysis), Gain budget analysis (Gain, NF, Linearity, Noise power), and Filtering (types, bandwidth, implementations).
A strong understanding of noise figure/noise temperature (Eb/No, BER vs. noise, receiver sensitivity, and expected value and variance), temperature effects, interconnection (standard and non-standard impedances), and isolation requirements.
Candidate must have experience with defining RF architectures, creating link budgets and performing system-level gain/distortion analysis.
Knowledge of Link Budget Analysis, including nonlinear effects and their remedies (inter-modulation, IP3, IP2, group delay variation, and dynamic range) is essential.
Knowledge of prime-power budgets and how to design for temperature extremes, heat transfer, and circuit protection modulation.
Familiar with, and maintains knowledge of industry trends. Help develop roadmaps utilizing the latest technologies to increase system and sub-assembly capabilities, and lower the cost, size, weight and power.
Familiar with design techniques for RF tracking such as CONSCAN and Monopulse.
Familiar with SATCOM standards for both military and commercial applications.
Familiarity with MIL-STDs is preferred.
Must be proficient with MS Word, Excel and PowerPoint, plus familiar with MS Project software.
University - Bachelor`s Degree/3-4 Year Degree
