senior rf design engineer

At polkadotfrog, we have an exciting opportunity for an experienced Senior RF Engineer to join a successful company with over 50 years of innovative product design experience and with one of the largest independent wireless development teams in the world. In this role, you’ll be part of a global, multi-disciplinary team who are undertaking technical challenges in all areas of medical product development, from proof-of-concept to market launch.

This role is a hands-on position which involves design and development of innovative small antennas and leading the implementation of new wireless hardware designs. You’re also expected to contribute to the specifications and testing of a range of wireless system.

The position: 

This position will lead the design of small antennas for wearable and implantable medical devices and perform electromagnetic simulations to understand the RF propagation using human body modelling techniques in CAD packages like CST, HFSS, or SEMCADX.

You’ll calculate link budgets for short range technologies such as BLE, BT classic, or UHF and develop and implement suitable RF test methodologies for the measurement of antenna parameters in anechoic chamber (e.g. TRP, TIS, EIS), including specification of suitable body phantoms.

You’ll also be responsible for technical documentation, such as specifications, test reports or description of detailed design and analyses and support sales efforts as a technical contributor, representing the RF design considerations – occasional travel is expected.


Why should you apply? 

It’s an exciting opening and you will be part of a great team of engineers, working on and leading pioneering projects in the field of implantable and wearable medical devices, taking on the design of ground-breaking wireless solutions.


What we’re looking for:

This role will suitable an outstanding engineer who excel in their technical discipline, motivate and lead others in innovative projects, understand the value of engineering, and have the ability to explain complicated things simply.

  • Strong academic record in a relevant degree
  • Proven experience with the design of small antennas, as well as experience with radio and antenna testing in an anechoic chamber
  • CAD modelling experience for electromagnetic simulations
  • A can-do attitude with plenty of new ideas
  • An ability to get along with other members of the wider development team
  • Excellent communication skills to present to technical and non-technical audiences
