Job Type: Full-time
Job Location: Linthicum, Maryland or Thames Valley, UK
Isotropic Systems is seeking an experienced RF/antenna technician to perform RF measurements of active microwave antenna prototypes, to assist in the assembly of said prototypes, and to prepare reports of the prototype antenna performance. Experience with antenna pattern measurements (e.g. in RF anechoic chambers) as well as bench measurements using a network analyzer are critical. The antenna prototypes will generally include printed circuit boards with active components and multiple RF paths, so experience with aspects of printed circuit board / electronics assembly, soldering/rework, debugging, and calibration are strong discriminators.
The candidate will be expected to work with the rest of the engineering team to design and execute consistent, effective test plans that satisfy business and technical goals. The successful candidate must be capable of both individual, self-driven work as well as other tasks performed in close collaboration with other technicians and engineers. The technician will be responsible for organizing, scheduling, and executing antenna tests of patterns and efficiency in an accurate, repeatable, and effective manner.
This role will be responsible for managing the in-house microwave measurement lab, and will be responsible for upkeep, maintenance, and expansion to continue to meet business and technical requirements.
