“We are not going to change the Laws of Physics, we are going to use them.”

Vice President of Engineering / Radio Frequency (RF) Engineering
Master’s and or PhD in Physics/Computer Science/Management Information Systems, Electrical and Electronics Engineering or Telecommunications with Bachelors in Electrical and Electronics Engineering or Telecommunications
ALL candidates selected for interviewing MUST sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) – being a self-motivated team player essential.

A startup company with a novel technically-disruptive idea, RF Energy Harvesting System
Candidate will validate the technology and assist with integrating into / presenting proposals for Venture Capitalists or other funding sources. Will also assist in the design and implementation of the technology once funded. “Sweat Equity” is required at this stage.
No compensation available until receipt of funding, then a generous base pay and equity stake in the company is offered, with position and title of Vice President of Engineering.
Company pursuing a sizable percentage of the 2022 estimated $37B RF Harvesting market.
A “typical” engineer is not who we are seeking.
Ask yourself if “disenfranchised” describes your job status.
Many companies lure and hire tech staff with vague evasive promises of technology development / advancement and reward, only to frustrate these technologists and sentence them to boring mediocre obscurity.
Un-appreciative of and discouraged by these grand promises, what action do most companies take against the technologists?
Usually terminations, “layoffs” (especially of the older workforce) become viable solutions, promoting hiring of younger lesser paid and “grateful” workers who pose little challenge to the few “at the top” personnel - those who are so stale that molded-bread appears a gourmet treat.
We are looking for someone hungry to become a disruptive technology pioneer.
Is that person YOU?
If selected, be prepared to be an innovative technology leader that your former company was too envious to allow.

Overall tasks associated with the job:
• Participation/monitoring in system/architecture specification to understand
how the system operates and how the RF's own sub-system (signal input/output)
relates to the entire system.
• Sub-system specification to translate the requirements derived from upper
level (system specification) into more detailed technical specifications of how the subsystem
should function internally to create the required responses (outputs) to certain
input signals.
• Integrating RF sub-systems into the complete system.
• Material/component selection to ensure that the most suitable (technologically
advanced, reliable, compatible and possibly low cost) components are used. Also
component sourcing must be considered.
• Simulation of designs with the help of computer models before building physical
• Sub-system circuit design: this is often in parallel with the simulation.
• Ensuring that reliability requirements are met in the design: these include E.M.C
(electromagnetic compatibility), safety, manufacturability and thermal design aspects.
• Layout design: designing the physical layout of the circuit and components on the
printed circuit board or other component base.
• Test specification to define the required test methods, cases and results. This is done
by reflecting the original specifications.
• Unit testing: testing the unit according to the test specifications, finding causes for
possible failures and solving the problems.
• Participation in design reviews to ensure the design work is proceeding according to
agreed upon processes, quality requirements, and delivery schedules.
• Participation in the specification and support of engineering processes and tools.
• Cross-platform telecom systems skills.
• Deep understanding of relevant metrics and analytics for telecom networks.
Minimum Position Requirements:
• 8+ years of wireless telecommunications and RF engineering design and deployment experience, ideally with UMTS and LTE technologies
• Understanding of RF propagation and tools. At least 4 years of experience performing desktop designs, preferably for indoor networks and 2 years of experience using iBwave propagation tool
• Ability to compare assorted product technical specifications and determine most cost-effective solution for the location
• Strong interpersonal skills. Ability to communicate information and ideas clearly and concisely, in writing and verbally.
• Ability to investigate and solve complex problems and implement related work improvements with cross functional team members.
• Proven ability to manage and prioritize assigned tasks to meet deadlines while also highlighting risks and implementing contingency plans.
• Ability to learn innovative technologies and hardware quickly
• Ability to read and interpret architectural drawings
• Ability to use basic office applications: PowerPoint, Word, Excel, Visio, Outlook/Email
• Flexible to work long hours including weekends and be ready to fly to the client’s location on a very short notice.
