Principal RF Engineer

Basildon (4 - 5 days a week onsite)

£50 - £60p/h inside IR35 (DOE)

6 months initially

Our client has a fantastic opportunity for a RF/Microwave Engineer for delivery of an Inter-Vehicle Data Link communications system. We are looking for an engineer with microwave engineering knowledge familiar with working on complex electronic (ideally RF-based) sensor systems.
The role will focus on the electronics design of the RF and control subsystems to be implemented on laboratory and aircraft concept demonstrators in later stages of the project.
You will provide technical support throughout the product life cycle including design implementation, integration and test, system trials and product delivery.
What you will do:
You will be responsible for delivery of work packages focused on analogue and RF electronics, covering the inter-vehicle data link design, system test and integration.
Modelling of proposed architectures to determine the optimal solution.
Simulation of RF designs
Documentation of designs including configuration management within the product data management tool
Support to laboratory hardware demonstrator development and test.
What we are looking for:
You really must have:
Practical hands on experience of RF design of circuitry between DC and 30 GHz.
Experience of the design of PLLs in the 10 to 30 GHz frequency range.
Experience of working with PCB layout personnel in an advisory capacity.
Hands on experience of using RF test and measurement equipment to develop and debug RF circuitry up to 30 GHz.
Ability to use RF and system modelling and simulation tools such as MATLAB and Keysight ADS.
Ability to produce concise technical reports detailing design solutions and implementation.
Ability to understand and follow the business practices, such as design reviews, which come with working in a high technology defence environment.
Degree in relevant engineering or related scientific discipline (Electronics Engineering or Physics preferred).
Ability to make technical decisions within own sphere of responsibility.
Willingness to work proactively within a fast moving and dynamic environment.
It would be nice if you had:
Knowledge/experience of digital or mixed signal design.
Experience in system level and sub-system integration and debug.
Experience of working in the defence electronics sector.
Experience of working with UK MOD (eg RAF, DSTL, DE&S)
An understanding of the deployment of airborne military platforms, systems and operation within the enterprise environment.
The nature of the programmes involving electronics design requires you to be capable of achieving full UK SC security clearance and in addition, you will require the ability to access caveated information such as UK Eyes Only and ITAR.
