Electrical Engineer, Junior

The Challenge:

What if you could use your engineering skills to transform the unmanned systems industry? As an electrical engineer, you understand the power behind complex systems. That knowledge is key when it comes to designing, developing, installing, and operating new sensors and system on unmanned surface and undersea vehicles (USVs/UUVs) for the US Navy. We’re looking for an electrical engineer who can use their skills to advance the capabilities and performance of USVs/UUVs that support US warfighters and Navy and Marine Corps humanitarian efforts.

Our team designs, develops, integrates, and deploys new systems and sensors for USV/UUVs as part of in-house research and development and as part of new and emerging technologies with the Navy and Marine Corps. That’s why we need you, an electrical engineer with a background in 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) or other communications technologies to help us design and develop new communications capabilities for USV/UUV platforms. You’ll learn how to design, develop, integrate, test, and operate private 4G LTE and Satellite Communications (SATCOM) equipment for USV/UUV operations. You’ll directly impact communications capabilities by helping to reduce cost and increase performance of USV/UUV communications. This is a chance to grow your systems engineering and communications skills while gaining experience in industry leading 4G and 5G LTE technologies. Join us and take on exciting challenges in military unmanned systems as we support warfighter and humanitarian missions and communications. This position requires the ability to travel.

Empower change with us.
