Senior RF Engineer ( Remote see Detail)

Location remote ( must be within East Coast  ) 



The Senior RF Circuits Design Engineer is responsible for developing a variety of novel passive RF, Microwave, and Millimeter-Wave components with emphasis on Filters, Power Splitters, Couplers, and Baluns to be employed in Defense and Aerospace, Telecommunications, Test and Measurement, Commercial & Industrial applications. This position reports to the LTCC Product Line Manager with the potential to become an integral part of our management team.

The designs will include any combination of lumped element and distributed structures with circuits realized in multi-layer low temperature co fired ceramic (LTCC) substrates.

Job Function (day-to-day responsibilities):
 Product Design and Development:
o Conduct the technical feasibility of market requirements and specifications
o Utilizing simulation software (ADS + HFSS or equivalent), design passive RF, Microwave, and Millimeter-Wave LTCC components with emphasis on Filters, Power Splitters, Couplers, and Baluns
o Contribute to the development of novel topologies, design methodologies, and simulation modeling techniques
o Ensure design for manufacturability practices are put in place achieving first spin pass success
o Evaluate new components, materials & suppliers
o Prepare design review meetings
o Contribute and maintain a library of FEM and MoM simulation models including connectors, PCBs, LTCCs, Cal Standards, Wire bonds, and lumped components, among others.
o Generate IP and publications in the form of patents, white papers, technical seminars, webinars, workshops, application notes, technical articles, etc.

 Product Characterization, Qualification, and Test Development:
o Work with characterization and test engineers to define test plans and block diagrams
o Work with Quality Assurance and Manufacturing Engineering to develop qualification plans, test strategies, and methodologies to qualify new designs, topologies, and technologies

 Support:
o Serve as technical support to the LTCC Product Line Manager, and the Production, Marketing, Sales, and Applications departments on new and existing designs in regard to customer requests, marketing requirements and manufacturing support.
o Maintain industry competitive knowledge base in LTCC materials and processes, circuital topologies, design methodologies/techniques, simulation software and modeling techniques, device characterization techniques, and novel production testing strategies

 Management
o Hands-on technical management of design projects from concept through production launch including defining project milestones and responsibilities, and interfacing with other team members to meet the project’s objectives

 BSEE with 10+ years, MSEE with 8+ years or Ph.D. with 6+ years relevant experience in passive components developments
 Strong background in the design of passive components like Filters, Power Splitters, Couplers, and Transformers in multi-layer technologies operating in the mmWave range
 Familiarity with both thick-film and thin-film processes
 Real-world strong lab analysis and debug experience required to verify simulated performance
 Well-developed analytical and problem-solving skills
 Familiarity with system-level design practices, requirements, and budgeting
 Very strong background in EM Simulation and modeling employing MoM and FEM engines. Prior experience with Ansys HFSS and Keysight’s ADS and Momentum is preferred
 Good familiarity with statistical analysis techniques is preferred
 Knowledge of Matlab and Python is preferred
 Knowledge of CAD software such as SolidWorks, and DraftSight
 Demonstrated ability to work collaboratively with a team of engineers to create & support the activities during the life cycle of products, from conception through production within stated time frames
 US Citizen or US Permanent Resident (Green Card Holder)
 Strong communication and presentation skills

A very disciplined, passionate, and humble individual with a behavior heavily driven by great core values.
