Responsibilities:

Responsible for design & development of mobile device antenna and RF/antenna-subsystems for handheld battery-operated Enterprise-class, data & voice-enabled smart-devices. You would be working in a global situated, engineering cross-functional project development team environment, where your responsibilities would include:

? Ensure the handheld RF/antenna system will fully meet Customer/Regulatory/Carrier performance requirements, via creating RF Link budgets, RF/system computer simulation analysis

? Design products with wireless technologies spanning 700MHz to 6GHz; including, but not limited to: GSM, LTE, CDMA, GPS, Wi-Fi, 802.11n/ac, NFC/HF-RFID and Bluetooth

? Creating Test Plans, creating prototypes, directing testing, and performing hands-on RF integration and debug experiments of antenna/RF integration using commercial lab equipment such as Spectrum Analyzers, Base Station Emulators, Signal Simulators, Network Analyzers, SAR equipment, and OTA (i.e., TRP/TIS) SISO and MIMO measurement chambers

? Scope out the RF task effort and communicating development status & issues to the broader program team

Qualifications

? Education: Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical Engineering (or equivalent) minimum; MS or PHD preferred

? 5+ years of applicable hands-on industry experience in embedded RF circuit design & integration, Electromagnetic fields and Microwaves; relevant working experience in antenna & RF/System integration for handheld mobile device applications is preferred

? Strong Experience with RF/EM CAD simulation (ADS, etc.) including RF Simulation of circuits, PCBs, Link budget analysis

? Experience with PCB board development of RF Circuits & matching-circuits with knowledge of techniques used in designing for EMI compliance and noise sensitive receivers

? SAR/HAC design experience & recent compliance success

? Excellent written and oral communication skills

? Ability to work independently with motivation and self-direction

? Fluent in English verbal & written language; Chinese or Mandarin is a plus

Preference given to recent practical experience in:

? Hands-on embedded RF design and associated testing & qualification experience for Consumer Smartphone applications

? RF aspects of a complete mobile product development life-cycle

? RF/antenna design for FCC/ETSI/3GPP/3GPP2/PTCRB/GCF compliance & recent success cases

? Hands-on RF/antenna/system testing experience including cabled and radiated methods

? Noise / RF interference mitigation and troubleshooting methods

? RF system integration (Radio/Antenna) optimization and debugging

++ Key words which a great candidate would have: ADS, Allegro, CST, Desense, carrier aggregation, MIMO, line-up analysis, blocking, IM3, coexistence, RF front end, receive desense, LNA, SAR , tuning, matching, PCB Design, EMC, FCC, of Power Amplifiers, Low-noise amplifiers, duplexers, receive filters , Transmit output power, Primary/Diversity Receiver sensitivity, harmonics , noise suppression

++ These words should flag a candidate that we would most likely \"reject\" for non-applicable experience that should be double check prior to submitting for consideration

?Macro/Small Cell Design/In Building design? ?Managed Network Services?, RFDS, ATOLL , RF Planning

Candidate Decline Reasons below, please use this information when sourcing new candidates

* Candidate does not seem to have the applicable mobile handheld RF and antenna design experience we are looking for.
* Limited Applicable RF Experience, Core Competencies do not include RF
* Has no Applicable RF Circuit level for mobile Design and test and simulation experience.

These words should flag a candidate that we would most likely reject for non-applicable experience that should be double check prior to submitting for consideration:

network reports, network performance, drive testing, DAS, A-TOLL, capacity and coverage

* Has no Applicable RF Circuit level for mobile Design and test and simulation experience.
* . The experience from T-Mobile is as a Network RF design engineer in planning T mobile networks. The candidate does not have and RF circuit level experience. The more relevant experience comes from working on Zebra devices from March-Nov 2012. Was a protocol test and validation engineer with focus on the verification side and relatively no focus on the debugging and issues from an RF perspective. These should be considers flags that the RF engineer is Network design experience focused and would need a double check to see if they had prior RF circuit experience.: ASSET, Coverage / Capacity, Radio Network Planning
* Is more RF network focused and very little RF Circuit level for mobile Design and test experience
* Reliability Engineer not a RF Design Engineer with mobile design , test and simulation.
* Has RF circuit test and troubleshooting but lacks application of RF Circuit level for mobile wireless
* Not enough practical experience outside of schooling , More WWAN Network Engineering focused
* ... Some are technicians (not degreed engineers), some do not have a technical degree (electrical engineering is mandatory), some are c


Associated topics: dsp, electrical, kv, msee, schema, signal processing, solar, wind, wire, wiring
