Antenna Engineer: Ottawa, ON

JOB SUMMARY:

We are looking for a highly motivated electrical engineer with a track record in antenna design. The successful candidate will work collaboratively with mechanical engineers – designing and overseeing prototype assembly and testing on simultaneous projects.

 

RESPONSIBILITIES:

  • Design antennas for existing 4G wireless networks as well as future 5G networks
  • Design, simulate and test wideband antenna radiating elements, phase shifters and arrays for antenna pattern optimization
  • Participate in all stages of design, from initial simulations, prototypes development and qualification through NPI
  • Work closely with mechanical design engineers during all stages of product development to ensure manufacturable and low-PIM antenna designs
  • Oversee test and validation of antenna prototypes of radiation patterns from near-field or far-field measurements
  • Present antenna design concepts and findings in a transparent and intellectually cooperative environment

 

QUALIFICATIONS:

  • A Master’s of Science in Electrical Engineering and a minimum of 2 years experience in antenna design
  • Knowledge in designing wideband antenna radiating elements, phase shifters and phased arrays
  • Proficiency in antenna design with simulation tools such as HFSS and/or CST
  • Hands-on experience measuring and characterizing antenna performance
  • Knowledge of manufacturing processes and familiarity with the design of low PIM components and antennas is a significant asset
  • Background in antenna pattern testing and verification using anechoic chambers is an asset
  • A Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering is a distinction
  • Excellent problem solving skills
  • Strong attention to detail
  • Well-developed interpersonal skills
  • Some (10% – 20%) travel may be required
