Staff/Sr. Staff level RFIC Design Engineer

Job Description

Our client are currently looking for an experienced Senior Staff RFIC Design Engineer to work with the wireless team on exciting new RF SOC products.

As a Senior Staff RFIC Engineer you will have overall responsibility for the RFIC design leader within a highly skilled team.

You will be expected to define and realize the RF architecture and circuits for our future low-power battery and battery-free products.

***Requirements and responsibilities***

* Define the state-of-the-art RF IP architecture and circuits for our next generation low-power IoT platform from conception and design through test and production
* Design, layout, and test key circuits yourself while coaching other engineers on the team towards a successful product implementation and production launch
* Integrate the RF IP within a larger SOC, package and PCB while mitigating coupling and emissions issues
* Provide RF expertise within a team environment of other designers, test engineers, and a project manager
* Debug complex technical problems related to the radio section of the SoCs (interfaces, digital system, power ma0nagement unit, packaging, etc).
* Supervise third-party contractors. Benchmark competitive solutions and IPs, study technology and standard trends, contribute to the BU's wireless roadmap
