Senior RF Hardware Engineer

Apply Back to open positions Benefits

We are seeking bright, innovative RF Design Engineers with good commercial aptitude to complement the existing design team developing novel phased array antenna systems. The successful candidate will be part of a dynamic London-based technology company to deliver complex, cost-effective and innovative products into the land mobile and aerospace industries.

Your role will be required to design, simulate and realise RF circuits and PCB sub-assemblies (from L-Band to Ku-Band), involving circuit analysis and schematic entry, simulation and test verification for the next generation of Ku/Ka Antenna platforms (Aero and Land) whilst contributing to the wider system architecture. You will be a part of a multidisciplinary team working with Antenna, ASIC, Systems and Product Engineers across a range of technologies.

Location: London

Technical responsibilities

  • As a member of the hardware development team, your role will be to innovate, design, simulate, commission and test RF/Microwave based designs for Hanwha’s Phased Array Antenna products across multiple development programs.
  • You will take an active role in developing and strengthening the existing engineering team with a strong background in RF electronic circuit design and simulation to arrive at a level of excellence for product development, delivery and cost-effective PCB designs.
  • To take ownership of hardware designs from helping to define requirements with the systems team, generating hardware specifications, schematic entry though to PCB layout, commissioning, verification and supporting integration into platforms.
  • Collaborate with the Antenna Team and fellow RF Engineers, including other disciplines such as power supply designers, software and systems to deliver an overall complete solution.
  • Perform design calculations and RF/Analogue simulations using industry standard tools (e.g. ADS) in order to determine performance, identify high-risk areas and ensure reliable designs.
  • Support product design, software integration, validation and handover to production with other Engineering team members.
  • Ensure the products are designed for EMC, Environmental and regulatory approvals and meet the requirements for volume manufacturing (DFT/DFM) for Aerospace and automotive applications.

Organisational responsibilities

  • Contribute to the company’s long-term goals by delivering right first-time hardware designs.
  • Demonstrated ability to deliver on-time and build good working relationships with cross-functional team members acting as a technical lead when required.
  • Provide time estimates for hardware activities for input into the project planning process.
  • Contribute to hardware design reviews when appropriate to ensure quality designs.
  • Self-motivated, creative and able to take ownership of problems and finding solutions.
  • Good communication skills and team working. Self-starter. Flexible can-do attitude.

Essential qualifications and skills

  • A good first or upper 2nd Class degree (BEng/MEng) in Electronic/Electrical Engineering or equivalent.
  • At least 5 years’ commercial product experience of complex Analogue and RF circuit design with a proven track record in the data communications, defence, automotive or aerospace industries. Familiar with interfacing circuits and sub-systems to digital electronics.
  • Ability to influence Systems Engineers and Product Managers to help define requirements generation to realise cost effective designs.
  • Strong technical knowledge of RF (to microwave frequencies) from requirements capture, specification, characterisation, simulation through to systems integration and debug to deliver working designs.
  • Highly capable in the design, analysis and characterisation of circuits and systems involving PLLs, frequency synthesizers, mixers, filters, and integrating them into board-level designs. Understanding of key performance parameters.
  • Highly competent in the design and layout of impedance controlled, RF and analogue PCB designs (to 14GHz); knowledge of PCB substrate materials and stackup definition.
  • Toolchains – Familiarity with schematic capture tools such as Altium Designer and industry standard simulation tools (ADS for microstrip and filter design).
  • Ability to engage with PCB layout engineers, fabricators and assembly houses.
  • Skilled at developing test procedures for the testing of RF/microwave circuits and mixed signal-based products.
  • Conversant with product design for EMC. DFM/DFT for volume manufacture.
  • Competent practical experience in the use of test equipment such as scopes, spectrum analysers, VNAs, signal generators, oscilloscopes, power meters.
  • Accurate and methodical. Familiarity with industry best practise.

Desirable

  • An understanding of product development for high-reliability and regulatory environments, such as the automotive, aerospace, defence, or maritime industries.
  • Knowledge of the product approvals process to meet the relevant product approvals for commercial aerospace (DO-160G) and MIL-STD would be a distinct advantage.
  • Commercially aware. The ability to analyse the trade‐offs between performance, manufacturability, cost and user experience.
