Senior Antenna Engineer: Ottawa, ON

JOB SUMMARY:

We are looking for a highly motivated senior electrical engineer with a proven track record in array antenna design, preferably for wireless base station applications. The successful candidate will lead antenna designs, working collaboratively with mechanical engineers, overseeing prototype assembly and testing on simultaneous projects.

 

RESPONSIBILITIES:

  • Design antennas for existing 3G/4G wireless networks as well as future 5G networks
  • Lead designs through initial simulations, engineering of prototypes and measurements through NPI
  • Design, simulate and test wideband antenna radiating elements, phase shifters and arrays for antenna pattern optimization
  • 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 or PhD in Electrical Engineering and a minimum of 5 years experience in designing array antennas
  • Experience 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
  • Experience in introducing high volume products for off-shore production
  • Knowledge of manufacturing processes and familiarity with the design of low PIM components and antennas
  • Background in antenna pattern testing and verification using anechoic chambers is an asset
