Radio Frequency Design Engineer
Every second a plane takes off with UTC Aerospace Systems equipment onboard. From space exploration and defense to today's more electric, more intelligent, more integrated aircraft - our systems make modern flight possible. And by "make it possible," we mean: we start it, power it, control it, ventilate it, quiet it, land it, stop it and monitor it. We have more than 41,000 employees across 150 countries working at the forefront of technological innovation. Thanks to their efforts, our global reach and our market-leading position, we do big things no one else can do.
As part of the Sensors & Integrated Systems (SIS) team, you'll help develop the next generation of more intelligent, more integrated and more reliable solutions that enhance aircraft safety and performance in the most rigorous flight conditions. We have 100 years of experience, a phenomenal product portfolio, state-of-the-art test labs and the resources to make your ideas shine. Come soar with us.
We are seeking an RF Design Engineer to join our R&D team developing a new generation of wireless sensing, monitoring and control systems for commercial and military aircraft. Specific responsibilities include RF board design, including radio transceiver, receive and transmit path components and planar patch antennas.
Experience with RF design and test tools and modelling software is required. Familiarity with embedded systems software and hardware development is a plus. The candidate must be comfortable creating specifications and rapidly prototyping to grow the design maturity while requirements may evolve. A major part of the job is to interact and cooperate with other electrical, software and systems engineers to develop new system architectures that best address a wide range of future product needs.
This ideal candidate possesses an innovative and curious mind and motivated to experiment with new solutions for complex problems. We are seeking a talented and motivated engineer with an enthusiastic attitude, capable of self-directed work. We expect that not all of the required technical qualifications may be equally developed in a single candidate, but a solid mix of most of these skills is strongly desired, combined with an ability and willingness to learn and to acquire new skills.
Qualification: •RF circuit design, analysis and testing
•Antenna design, shielding and packaging
•PCB assembly and debugging with RF test equipment.
•Strong analytical skills and expertise with one or more RF circuit modeling tools
•Background in system modeling and simulation highly desired
•Familiarity with low-power wireless device design a strong plus
•Working knowledge of 802.11 or 802.15.4 protocols a strong plus
Education: MS or PhD in Electrical, RF or a related field with 7 years of relevant work experience
BS in Electrical, RF or a related field with 10 years of relevant experience
