With us you will be responsible for Hardware R&D work related to micro- and millimetre wave components and systems for space and ground applications. Work includes design and characterization of RF components to complete systems, project preparation, project leading and working with customers.

We expect you to have

Hands-on experience on radio systems and components at micro- or millimeter wave frequencies. Especially experience on sub-system and system level work related to hardware development of radars, radiometers or wireless communication systems for ground or satellite applications would be of advantage. We also appreciate knowledge on signal processing and embedded programming skills (micro controllers and/or FPGAs) related to the RF systems. We expect you to have higher level university degree (i.e. M.Sc., Lich. Tech, PhD).

As a person you are An open minded team player with proactive attitude. It is important that in addition to actual R&D skills you have business oriented mindset. You are self-driven with good communication skills.

We offer

Exciting working environment in Antennas and RF Technology team. We have excellent relationship with top universities and laboratories around the globe and our researchers have col-laborated and been on research visits at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Caltech and IHP, just to mention a few. With us, you have a chance to contribute to future telecommunication systems (5G and beyond) and space borne radios. You will be a part of European Space Agency’s external laboratory on millimeter wave technology – MilliLab.
