RF Engineer Job Summary:
You will be responsible for designing embedded and external antenna systems for the next generation of connected IoT devices. You will do analysis and feasibility studies for new antenna/RF architectures that lead to performance improvement, size reduction and lower cost. You will drive and support technology developments for the next generation antenna applications in the areas of LTE, Wi-Fi, BLE, GPS/GNSS, and LoRa for both internal and external antennas.
RF Engineer Job Description:
You will require a background in electromagnetic theory with application in antenna, RF/Microwave circuit and network theory. Experience designing standard antenna types (such as dipole, monopole, loop, horn, or patch for broadband and multiband). Experience with antenna array theory. Design experience with embedded antennas used in cell phone and wearable devices such as PIFA/WIFA, folded monopole and loop is a must. The right candidate must have good communication, organization and documentation skills as well as the ability to thrive in a fast paced environment. You will work closely with Parsec’ s engineering team on issues related to design, placement, layout, materials, manufacturing and test.
