Job Description


RF Test Engineer

  • Building a distributed radar imaging constellation to power the first accurate, real-time 3D map of the world. As an RF Test Engineer on the Radar Imaging team, you will have the unique opportunity to shape the design of the first orbital MIMO radar imaging system.
  • In this critical role, you will be responsible for the implementation and performance verification of the entire radar and communication front-end assembly, rapidly advancing designs from clean sheets of paper to operational deployment in space.



  • Rapidly prototype, test, and validation solutions for radar imaging and communications systems
  • Work closely with ASIC/FPGA, RF/antenna, and software engineers to design and validate high-performance digital communication and radar imaging systems
  • Collect and analyze data and collaborate with other engineers to understand system performance and help resolve design issues
  • Write automation software to interact with test equipment, instrumentation, and units under test
  • Create hardware requirements, specifications, and test procedures
  • Develop and implement test plans for hardware verification and validation


Basic Qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering, physics, or related field
  • 11+ years of experience in RF test equipment such as signal generators; oscilloscopes; and spectrum, network, and vector analyzers.
