Job Description
  • The Client is currently looking for a RF Engineer (Contractor) with a broad range of experience that supports the analysis, design, implementation, optimization, and enhancement of RF equipment for launch vehicle and satellite communication systems.
  • The successful candidate needs an understanding of detail design issues involved with RF design for mixers, filters, low-power driver amplifiers and power amplifiers for S-band and X-band frequencies.
  • The individual will use simulation tools such as Microwave Office as well as RF test equipment.
  • The individual will apply knowledge of component-level design for transistors, filters, mixers, oscillators and RF switches and will use test equipment to measure S-parameters, noise figure, intercept point, compression point, switching speed, and phase noise on electrical circuits and integrated assemblies.
  • Emphasis will be on conducting engineering verifications and transitioning new RF designs to production.
  • Guide technicians on test, tune, debug, and optimization of prototype circuits and components to meet specification requirements and manufacturing requirements.
  • Design prototypes and provide sustaining engineering support for custom RF assemblies and sub-systems to customer specifications.
  • Design, test, and troubleshoot RF sub-systems, integrated RF assemblies, and components through use of circuit analysis tools such as MWO.
  • Document test results, resolve failures to root cause, and work with internal and external customers to implement repair and improvement plans.
Education/Experience
  • A bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering or a related engineering degree is required. A master's degree is preferred.
  • Five (5) years of related experience in designing, testing and troubleshooting RF sub-systems and integrated RF assemblies and components is required.
  • Design Experience: Experience with RF design for circuits such as synthesizers, oscillators, mixers, filters, drivers and power amplifiers at S-band and/or X-band frequencies.
  • Design skills: working knowledge of analog electronics, detailed design knowledge of RF theory and application, knowledge of RF test procedures.
  • Computer skills: Ability to use Microsoft Office applications, knowledge of circuit computer aided circuit design tools and circuit simulators (such as Microwave Office, Pspice, Mathcad, Matlab).
Desired
  • Aerospace experience, especially working with flight critical systems.
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Time Management & Organizational skills: ability to plan effectively using various scheduling tools, flexibility and adaptability to changing priorities and assignments, ability to maintain confidentiality.
