Senior Electrical Engineer – RF


This is a Full-time position in Westminster, CO posted September 21, 2021.

Reports to: Electrical Engineering Director or Manager

Salary Range: $120-150K/yr


As a senior member of our electrical team, you will work in multi-disciplinary project teams to architect and develop systems for a wide variety of markets including consumer products, medical devices, space systems, unmanned aerial vehicles, and industrial controls. You will support the sales team as we bid and quote on incoming work. Youll have the opportunity to showcase the many hats that you can wear as you integrate yourself into our project teams, working closely with the systems engineering and project management functions. On these teams you will be responsible for the outcomes of the electrical and electronics function, sometimes including firmware. You will heavily influence our design guidelines as we consistently strive to be better. You will mentor less experienced engineers and work closely with management to groom them to take on more responsibility.

How you will spend your time:

Because of the variable nature of our work, this is only an aspirational guide to how you will spend your time and is subject to change depending upon the ongoing status of our business.

  • Design Work:

Youll design and troubleshoot RF front end systems, ADC/DAC architectures, electrical block diagrams, schematics and PCBs. Youll get your hands dirty and own your designs from start to finish, involving other team members as appropriate to ensure that our designs are successful. Youll review the work of other engineers on a regular basis.

  • Mentoring:

Youll work with more junior staff members, developing their technical skills and helping them advance in their careers. This requires effective delegation, where you allow them to own their work but you stay closely involved to ensure that they are successful.

  • Sales Support:

Youll work closely with our account managers and project managers to bid and scope projects with our customers, occasionally visiting customer sites to discuss our capabilities.

  • Overhead:

Whether its training, developing and refining our processes, managing portions of our Quality Management System, or tracking your time, youll also have to deal with a lot of the extraneous responsibilities of a senior staff member.

Who You Are:

Youre an individual who has the experience that comes from successfully delivering multiple projects and can speak to the lessons you learned from your failures along the way. Youve led RF designs from architecture through design implementation, preferably for technologies like radar or satellite communications. Youre comfortable being the point person responsible for getting the job done. Youve worked with a large variety of technologies so you can bring your breadth of experience to bear and tailor a right-sized solution to individual project needs. You have outstanding attention to detail, which makes you invaluable when reviewing the work of others. You dont believe in a one-size fits all approach and you are skilled at adapting to changing circumstances.

Above all, people refer to you as an outstanding team member that they enjoy working with.

Minimum Qualifications:
