Knowledge of board level circuit design and lab test equipment is a plus. Effective written and verbal communication skills are necessary, as the candidate will work and directly report to a senior engineer.

The ideal candidate will work under the supervision of a senior engineer. The candidate will work in a lab and office environment with guidance from senior engineers to troubleshoot complex engineering problems and come up with innovative solutions. The candidate will have responsibilities inside the lab to test, troubleshoot, and integrate hardware and software into complex electrical systems. Use of both digital and RF test equipment is a requirement to fully test and integrate hardware into a larger system design. The candidate will have an opportunity to learn and understand the basics of electrical engineering and use that knowledge to understand more complex design practices. The majority of work is focused on digital analysis using innovative techniques in a multitude of radar signal processing domains. The candidate will work as an integral team member by supporting the software and hardware development of current and future electronics systems. Will gain experience working in fast-paced lab environments and transitioning electronics systems from ideas to development and finally into deployment. The candidate is expected to contribute their talents to all phases of a product lifecycle and be willing to stand behind their design. This engineer will use innovative processing techniques to analyze complex radar data patterns to increase performance of our critical systems.
