We are currently working with an exciting startup company in Odense, actively seeking a Lead RF Engineer to support with their RF domain development efforts and join their dynamic team in their mission to create an autonomous airborne test and measurement solution. This innovative solution aims to provide precise diagnostics and monitoring of the radio spectrum anywhere in the world.

As the Lead RF Engineer in this role, you will spearhead the technical development of their new drone payloads while also contributing to the overall product architecture. The challenge lies in designing a lightweight and versatile solution, which presents exciting opportunities for creativity. To tackle these challenges, you will be expected to possess a profound understanding of designing RF systems and be open to exploring novel technologies and their integration into the overall solution.

Your primary responsibility as the Lead RF Engineer will be to lead and oversee the development of RF technology. This will encompass the following:

  • Leading the design, testing, qualification, and development of the radio subsystem within the drone payload, both on a component and circuitry level.
  • Evaluating RF design options, including Software-Defined Radios (SDRs), passive RF components, antennas, etc., across a wide frequency range from VHF to EHF.
  • Collaborating with software and hardware teams to conduct benchmarking and trade-off analysis on designs and software applications.
  • Preparing and reviewing technology roadmaps, design documents, and making economic design trade-offs.
  • Proactively identifying high-risk aspects in the product design timeline and defining efficient mitigation processes early in the design phase.
  • Designing and benchmarking early prototypes.
  • Assisting in identifying the right resources, such as components, new hires, consultants, etc., to accomplish the project goals.
To excel in this role as a Lead RF Engineer, you should possess the following qualifications and skills:
  • Experience in designing RF systems, microwave components, and circuits.
  • An educational background in Electrical Engineering, Telecommunications, RF Engineering, or related fields.
  • A strong understanding and passion for radio engineering principles, parts, processes, and standards.
  • Familiarity with the hardware-based requirements of SDRs, including FPGA size, speed, internal clock stability, I/O interfaces, gains, and signal filtering within the SDR.
  • Experience in antenna test and measurement, radiation patterns, and antenna tracking is preferred but not essential.
  • Any experience with technical work involving drones is advantageous.
  • Fluency in English (both oral and written) as it is the primary language of their company.
  • Eligibility for security clearance with the Danish defense.
The role may require approximately 20-30 days of travel per year.
