Electronics System Design Engineer

Company Details

Transforming how the world connects

AST SpaceMobile and our global partners are building the first and only space-based cellular broadband network to be accessible by standard smartphones. Called SpaceMobile, this ultra-powerful network is being designed to provide connectivity at 4G/5G speeds everywhere on the planet – on land, at sea and in flight.

The Electronics System Design Engineer is responsible for taking a leading role in architecting a cutting edge wireless system for the space environment.

Duties and Responsibilities:

  • Define and manage complex multi-disciplinary system requirements for internal RnD and sub-contractors.
  • Creatively lead complex tradeoff analysis with high-profile multi-disciplinary team.
  • Define and manage the system requirements, through design reviews, verification, and validation process.
  • Design methods and architectures using calibration, pre-distortion, compression, PA linearization and other mechanisms to optimize wireless systems.
  • Define control procedure and telemetry to achieve robust and efficient system in space environment.
  • Work with best-in-class dynamic RnD, to create a technology breakthrough in an immerging market.

Minimum Requirements:

  • BSc in Electrical Engineering
  • 7+ years’ experience in designing wireless systems, including hands on lab testing and integration.
  • Deep knowledge in wireless communication systems and their elements (beam forming, channel estimation, MIMO, coding theory etc.)
  • Knowledge in digital signal processing related algorithms like DPD/CFR, canceller, DFE, etc.
  • Experience in cellular systems development to meet 3gpp requirements will be an advantage.
  • Experience in system level circuit modelling with EDA tools, SPICE, MATLAB or Python.
  • Knowledge in wireless communication protocols: 5G/LTE/WCDMA/GSM will be a plus
  • Creative and with ability to drive good ideas to successful implementation.
  • Ability to work effectively in a fast-paced and rapidly changing environment.
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills
