Job Description

Are you a principal level Atenna Design Engineer looking to work on cutting edge technology?

Do you have at least 12 of the 16 required skills listed below?

Then this may be the position for you!

We are currently recruiting for a qualified, interested and available Engineer Senior Principal, Antenna Design for an opportunity located in Richardson, TX.

Duties & Responsibilities

  • Design of base station antennas for existing 3G/4G wireless bands along with developing 5G beamformers within the sub-6 bands.
  • 10+ years of experience designing antennas in the sub-6GHz bands including all aspects of system design along the passive RF path i.e. Radiators, Phase Shifters, Diplexers, Splitters, Couplers etc
  • Design, simulate, and test lens structures and antenna arrays for active beamforming and tilt control.
  • Design, simulate, and test wideband antenna elements and features for aperture tuning and sidelobe control.  Design and simulate antennas using CST and/or HFSS.  
  • Test antenna and array prototypes in near-field anechoic chamber and outdoor far field range to verify gain, cross-pol isolation, sidelobes along with all other parameters critical to basestation antennas.      
  • Perform system analysis of Basestation Antennas as it relates to overall performance of wireless networks.
  • Direct experience in providing technical leadership and serving as a mentor to globally located R&D teams.

SKILLS REQUIRED

  • Experience in active and adaptive beamforming RF systems. Must have experience working at sub-6GHz frequencies through direct involvement in 4G/5G telecom networks
  • Experience providing technical leadership to a team of globally placed R&D staff.
  • Extensive experience in design and simulation of microwave band antennas including dipole, biquad, yagi, patch, and flared notch antennas and associated reflectors supporting linear and circular polarizations. 
  • Experience designing MIMO array, phased array, and/or beamforming antenna arrays based upon cross-polar elements configurations. 
  • Background in frequency selective surface for wideband antenna tuning and pattern optimizations
  • Experience in radome and lens simulations and implementation
  • Experience in directly interfacing with customers to understand requirements and present technical solutions.
  • Extensive experience in antenna design and simulation using CST and/or HFSS and beamforming simulation using MatLab. 
  • Background in antenna test and verification using anechoic chamber.
  • Deep hands on experience measuring PIM on basestation arrays
  • Background in electronically tunable Phase Shifters is preferred.
  • Background in mmwave antenna design is preferred.
