Digital Signal Processing SME, Lead

The Challenge:

What if you could use your engineering and technical project management skills to transform technologies in Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR), Electronic Warfare (EW), and agile Radio Frequency (RF) systems? As an Electrical Engineer, you understand the power behind complex systems. That knowledge is key when it comes to working with clients to identify problems, generate solutions, and communicate results. We’re looking for a project management and Digital Signal Processing (DSP) subject matter expert who can use their skills to perform technical project development and management, signal processing, algorithm development, simulation, and modeling of RF systems.

Our team develops solutions for complex RF system problems. That’s why we need you, a Project Management and DSP Engineer, with strong knowledge of DSP and a command of modeling and simulation to help us design and develop agile RF systems. You’ll lead engineering teams, develop technical project requirements, and use your DSP skillset in both hardware and software design. You’ll directly impact the RF systems domain by creating new agile signal processing methods. We’ll look to you to share your signal processing expertise through team leadership and mentoring junior staff. This is a chance to use your experience-based knowledge in DSP while broadening your skillset into areas like RF communications. Join us and take on exciting challenges in the ISR domain as we advance the state of agile RF systems.

Empower change with us.
