Job Description

How You'll Help us Connect The World

As a Senior Base Station Design Engineer you will be a part of an exciting team providing leadership and mentorship to a globally located R&D team serving our Base Station Antennae Division. Bringing validated knowledge in wireless infrastructure architectures and air interface standards including LTE, HSPA, as well as some exposure to 5G-NR designing active and passive antennae products is required. Working as a collaborative unit across a variety of engineering and testing teams with sub-6GHz frequencies through direct involvement in 4G/5G telecom networks you will apply a high level of detailed design, simulation and layout of transceiver circuit blocks. Daily you will configure and build power amplifiers, low noise amplifiers, oscillators, distributed and lumped filters, up converters, down converters, quadrature modulators and demodulators, RF switches, duplexers, matching circuits and phase shifter circuits.

Do you enjoy working collaboratively across global teams? Do you have experience designing Base Station Antennas? If so, you will make an impact by

Influencing design for existing 3G/4G wireless bands along with developing 5G beam former and massive MIMO antenna arrays within the sub-6 bands and millimeter wave bands. Using HFSS and/or CST to simulate, and test wideband antenna elements and features for aperture tuning and sidelobe control. Providing an array of prototypes in near-field anechoic chamber and outdoor far field range to verify gain, cross-pol isolation, sidelobes along with all other parameters critical to for antennas you will ensure Best-in-class products for our clients. A strong understanding of Passive Intermodulation (PIM) with an understanding of PIM root causes as well as performing system analysis of Base Station Antennas as it relates to overall performance of wireless networks will be vital as you will work partner the testing team to ensure product success.

Required Qualifications for Consideration
  • Bachelor's Degree in Electrical Engineering and 8+ years experience in designing antennas in the sub-6GHz bands, including system design with passive and active RF path.
  • Knowledge of microwave band antennas including dipole, biquad, yagi, patch, and flared notch antennas and associated reflectors supporting linear and circular polarizations.
  • Demonstrated experience designing MIMO array, phased array, and/or beamforming antenna arrays based upon cross-polar elements configurations.
  • Experience with all aspects of RF PCB design and production release including functional specifications, layout design and constraints, DFM implementation, and testing for design verification (DVT)
You will excite us if you have
  • Master's Degree or PhD in Electrical Engineering with a focus on Radio Frequency.
  • Background in electronically tunable Phase Shifters.
  • Background in mmwave antenna design.
