The Opportunity

The company are developing and testing different prototypes now and their work is only set to ramp up with a major field trial happening later in the year too.

The Senior Microwave Engineers are busy and need another pair of hands to help with R&D microwave testing. You will be someone who can do hands-on measurement and testing of large outdoor microwave antennas.

You will set up the systems initially including the necessary power conversion equipment. You will then be taking measurements and testing the microwave antennas. For example, measuring the power in the beam, refining the beam alignment, and checking and calibrating the safety systems.

Relevant Equipment experience: Vector Network Analysers, microwave wave guides, AC/DC supplies, Power Inverters, Electric Field Probes, Test Antennas to probe the field, and Power Meters.

Do you have this experience?

• Measurement & testing of large outdoor microwave antennas e.g., with Radar, Reflector or Array Antennas

• Vector Network Analyser experience

Is this on your wavelength?

If you have experience doing Microwave test measurements on high power antennas, this could be a rare role to align with those interests and experience. Radio propagation, Magnetrons, and electronics or electrical engineering experience would be valuable and of interest.

Given the company DNA we need someone who would thrive in an R&D environment working with specialised engineers and scientists in a small start-up environment. If working for a company like this in your microwave niche sounds interesting then do contact me with your cv for a chat.
