successful design, development, and production release / transition
of new products.
Manage employee development & operational improvements of the
IMA design group in support of company goals & objectives.
Participate in recruiting & team development.
Technical responsibilities include leading the design of RF
architectures and systems using chain analysis and frequency
planning tools (primarily using VSS). Design of RF components using
ADS, MWO, HFSS, Sonnet, Spice or Cadence. Evaluation and selection
of devices appropriate to the applications and meeting the customer
requirements—this includes design or usage of LNA, PA, filters,
mixers, frequency multipliers, isolators, couplers, and phase
locked oscillator and synthesizers. Perform trade studies for noise
figure, power compression, spurious, and bandwidth. Perform
hardware layout, component evaluation, prototype construction, and
test. Prepare test methods and specifications, analyze and test
hardware to verify performance. Lead PDR, CDR, PRR design reviews
and give presentations to management and customers. Lead project
Provide guidance on technology trends and help drive our
industry competitiveness, especially as it pertains to SWaP
Extensive experience with devices, circuitry, and systems
operating at RF, microwave, and millimeter-wave frequencies.
Ability to design circuitry for high frequency receivers,
transmitters, and signal generation. Experience with design tools
such as MWO, ADS, HFSS, Sonnet, Spice, or Cadence. Knowledge of
signal routing and packaging technologies for devices and
subassemblies. Ability to conceptualize initial component and
system designs with schematics and block diagrams; lead project
team execution of assembly, test, debug, and optimization; and
organizing results for design reviews and customer presentations.
Ability to communicate clearly with excellent speaking, writing,
