Position Description

Dynetics, an employee-owned company, is seeking a talented RF Hardware Design Engineer to join a diverse team to create unique solutions for complex problems. With offices across the United States engaging in the defense, space, cyber and commercial fields, Dynetics provides responsive, cost-effective engineering, scientific and IT solutions.

The Product Engineering Department is a design-focused group of engineers specializing in advanced hardware systems. The individual selected for this position will be a design engineer with RF engineering skills. The individual must be a self-starter with experience working with inter-disciplinary teams to solve challenging technical problems. The engineer will work closely with hardware integrated into a diverse range of aerospace and military systems including manned/unmanned ground/air vehicles, missiles, defensive radars, and space systems.

The RF Engineer will be expected to execute in a fast-paced, small team environment through all phases of the hardware life cycle from conceptual development and detailed design through manufacturing, qualification testing, and post-delivery support. The RF Engineer is also expected to actively partner with other engineers, project managers, technicians and the customer to develop solutions that adhere to a diverse set of requirements. Additionally, the engineer will support resolution of technical issues that are discovered during the manufacture and test of deliverable hardware. This will include troubleshooting board-level issues, assessing failures for root cause, and identifying corrective actions.

The RF Engineer should be familiar with the design of power amplifiers, low noise amplifiers, mixers, filters, signal synthesis, PIN diode switching, and analog-to-digital conversion and how to implement these hardware features in complex Radar, EA, and communications systems across several high frequency bands (L-band, S-band, C-band, X-band, Ku-band, Ka-band). Specific R&D interests in low phase noise, miniature high power PA design, and high bandwidth operation for advanced radar and EA developments are a plus. The candidate should be able to understand and model the theoretical operation of these systems and balance tradeoffs of multiple characteristics to reach an optimal design. The candidate should also be familiar with RF PCB design and packaging practices to fully support the solutions that Dynetics is developing.
