Sr High-Power

RF Engineer

Our company located in the PNW is a leading provider of laser technology for industrial, scientific, and medical applications. We are currently seeking a full-time Senior RF Electrical Engineer to complement our Engineering Team to develop novel electronic circuits and systems for our application specific molecular gas lasers. The new Senior RF EE will work on designing a diverse range of high-power and high frequency circuits, and will collaborate with other engineers for improving the existing designs.

We are a rapidly growing company, experiencing double-digit revenue growth in recent years. We provide leading edge gas-discharge-excited laser technologies to global industries in the medical, semiconductor, electronic, manufacturing, and scientific development R&D markets. We focus on creative designs that match our customers’ applications and solve difficult problems with innovative solutions. We strive to provide a challenging and supportive environment where team members are encouraged to go beyond ordinary thinking and challenge the normal with the truly ingenious. Our team is our greatest asset and supporting their career development is the greatest investment we can make in our future.

In October 2017 we became a member of the TRUMPF Group, the world’s largest manufacturer of lasers and laser systems. Although we have retained the agility and flexibility of a small company, both our business and our employees now have access to new opportunities for growth.

On a daily basis you will:

  • Work as part of a small, dedicated engineering team to design prototypes and products for application-specific RF and analog circuits and systems for molecular CO2 laser products.
  • Typical design project involves requirements definition, circuit simulation, schematic capture, PCB layout, testing in the lab, troubleshooting, optimization as needed, and documentation.
  • Support sustaining activities of existing products including minor design changes, dealing with obsolescence issues, improving yield and manufacturability, etc.
  • Participate in all concept, preliminary, and critical design reviews.
  • Write test reports & procedures for prototype, first article, and V&V.
  • Support production by designing test fixtures, test-automation, and writing test procedures.

What you bring:

  • M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering with minimum 3 years of experience or B.Sc. with more than 5 years of experience desired.
  • Experience with designing products to meet regulatory compliances (such as EMC and electrical safety) and design for manufacturing (DFM) requirements.
  • Experience in simulating, designing, and testing linear/nonlinear analog and RF circuits with an emphasis on high-power applications of greater than 20W. Synthesizer, PLL, power-oscillator, mixer, and switching power supply design experiences are a plus.
  • Familiarity with Microwave engineering concepts (Distributed circuits, transmission lines, etc.)
  • Experience with EDA tools for PCB layout (e.g. Altium)
  • Experience with ADS/AWR RF simulation software
  • Excellent competency with lab test equipment including signal generator, network & spectrum analyzers, power meter, oscilloscope, etc.

Other desired skills:

  • Excellent interpersonal skills, and excellent written and verbal communication skills.
  • Demonstrated ability and willingness to perform in a fast-pace and multidisciplinary product development environment.
  • Provide engineering and technical support to operations for all products released for manufacturing:
    • Quality issues.
    • Component issues; end-of-life, quality, shortages, long lead times, etc.
    • Risk mitigation; testing and validation for alternate component sourcing, process/procedure experiments, etc.
  • Six Sigma Green Belt or experience using Six Sigma tools such as FMEA, DOE, and Process Maps
  • Familiarity with SolidWorks.
  • Document new designs by entering BOM and design data into our configuration management system (Agile).
  • Documentation: assembly drawings, fabrication drawings, Golden-sample schematics, etc.
  • Promote scientific rigor and individual skills advancement within the company’s technical team.
