Numerica is seeking Antenna and RF Engineers who excel at developing state-of-the art integrated RF systems to deliver powerful new sensing and communication capabilities. Working in small innovative teams, our engineers build solutions that make a difference. Our research endeavors don't end once we've written a journal or conference paper describing our technology; rather, our work is complete when our technology has been deployed in mission-critical systems and our customers within government and industry are successful. As science fiction writer Arthur Clarke wrote, "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." Numerica is seeking talented "magicians" to join in our common struggle and expand the boundaries of what's possible.
What You Will Do:
Create new antenna technology that changes our customer's ideas about what is possible;
Contribute to the direction of a talented small team with your expertise and ideas;
Aid in the design and development of custom antenna solutions for RF sensing systems;
Integrate custom and off-the-shelf hardware components for testing and deployment;
Create alignment across algorithms, software, and hardware in our radar products;
Engage with customers, to ensure successful outcomes for their mission-critical needs;
Help your colleagues and customers understand what you're doing and why.
Recommended Background and Experience:
An Antenna and RF Engineer at Numerica should possess a B.S. (M.S. or higher ideal) in Electrical Engineering or a related field.
An Antenna and RF Engineer should have a record of academic excellence and demonstrated experience in most of the following areas:
Antenna Design and Analysis: antenna layout and tuning, feed design, impedance matching, computational analysis in HFSS, COMSOL, CST Momentum, or similar CEM package;
RF Design and Analysis: microstrip circuit design, RF layout and simulation via ADS, Microwave Office or similar RF layout and analysis tool, phased array design experience is a major plus;
Antenna and RF testing: network analyzer S-parameter characterization, antenna pattern measurement.
An Antenna and RF Engineer should have effective written and verbal communication skills, with the demonstrated ability to convey salient details about advanced technology in a compelling manner to both experts and non-experts alike.
