Senior RF/Microwave Engineer

Company Details

Mapping satellites and space debris in low Earth orbit

LeoLabs operates a global network of radars to map Low Earth Orbit and provide data services. LeoLabs is hiring a Senior Engineer to design and develop the RF/Microwave subsystems for our next generation of advanced radar systems. The ideal candidate will develop RF/Microwave hardware that will be deployed in a variety of phased-array radar systems. You will work within a team of other LeoLabs engineers to create the sub system design specifications and other related design documentation to build, test and characterize engineering prototypes and ensure a successful transition to volume production.
