Job Description

My client, a world leader in the defence sector, requires an RF/Microwave Electronics Designer to join their Datalinks Electronics Design Team, supplying datalinks for a range of missile systems for land, air and naval defence systems.

This is a chance to be part of a successful team with exposure to complex and technologically advanced projects and products, providing a stimulating and exciting experience. You will work with highly talented and motivated engineers in a friendly and supportive environment, offering great career progression opportunities.

RF/Microwave Electronics Designer

If you have previous experience in a radio systems architectural role, ideally in the defence or cellular radio infrastructure sectors, then this is an ideal opportunity for you.

This role is ideal for someone looking to step up into a more senior technical position, where you will be responsible for designing, leading and guiding the development of state-of-the art high quality, high performing innovative radio solutions that meet challenging requirements. You will also offer technical direction to less experienced engineers to develop the circuit elements contained within these solutions.

Good communication skills are key, as the role will also entail liaising with other functional areas like systems teams, firmware teams, software developers etc.

To be considered for this role, applicants will need to have a detailed understanding and experience of the following:

*Architectures for medium to high power microwave transceivers, including catering for issues around full-concurrency operation.
*Microwave radio frequency planning analysis.
*Detailed modelling of link budgets and the derivation of top-level radio specs from these budgets.
*Able to root cause issues in the measurement results of prototype radio platforms and recommend/implement solutions.
*Practical application of radio sub-system building blocks, e.g. LNAs, Mixers, Filters, Synthesisers, HPAs etc., and how to apply them to a realisable radio, including temperature compensating biasing, power supply management, PCB layout and evaluation/testing of solutions.
*Use of RF test equipment and understanding of the limitations (you must be able to merge real world measurements and theoretical predictions together to refine outcomes).
*Designing to meet Military Environmental requirements and standards e.g. DEF Stan's and Mil Specs etc.

Knowledge/understanding of any of the following would be an additional advantage:

*Modem and DSP signal flow.
*Discrete analogue circuit design.
*The use of mathematical modelling tools such as Matlab.
