Job Description:

Our team is seeking a highly motivated Software Defined Radio (SDR) / Digital Signal Processing (DSP) Software Engineer. Your primary focus will be the analysis of signals, the development of signal detection algorithms for advanced RF communications systems for National Security applications in RF Cyber Security. You will become a member of a multi-discipline, success oriented high-performance team. Projects range from urgent, quick-reaction requests in response to urgent real-world driven needs to longer term 3-5 year efforts. Our advanced communication systems generally include highly optimized Size, Weight, and Power constrained groundbreaking signal processing transceivers, antennas, GPUís, & SDRs. We develop with GNU radio, C++, and python, but continually explore new technologies in the area to include machine learning applications. We assess communication protocols for potential cyber-security vulnerabilities.

This R&D Microwave and Sensor Engineer position requires on-site work in a collaborative electronics laboratory environment using iterative/agile methods to develop capabilities and requires occasional travel of 3-4 trips per year. Please know that you may be hired into this organization or it's sister organization.

On any given day you may be called on to:

Development new digital signal processing methods
Develop DSP code in Matlab/GNU Radio for SDR applications
Research new Radio Communication Systems, associated Signals of Interest and Protocols
RF system conceptualization and realization
Research, develop, analyze and/or field test RF systems
Interact with customers & stakeholders on system conceptualization and design

Qualifications We Require:

Bachelorís and Masterís degrees in a relevant STEM discipline, or equivalent combination of relevant education and experience
The ability to acquire and maintain a DOE Q-level security clearance and SCI-level clearance, which may require a polygraph test
Qualifications We Desire

Experience application level software for Software Defined Radios (GNU Radio, and Matlab/Simulink, Python, C/C++)
Experience with RF microwave and antenna/EM applications
The ability to occasionally travel
Familiarity with embedded DSP Firmware and associated software tools/languages or equivalent (e.g. VHDL)
A familiarity with DoD and IC organizations and associated systems and operations
A familiarity with general test and measurement equipment (oscilloscopes, DVM, logic analyzers) and RF test equipment (network analyzer, spectrum analyzer)
The ability and desire to participate in field tests
Knowledge of RF, Digital Communications, Electronic Warfare, and Cyber Security systems and principles
Proven experience in interacting with internal and external customers and partners
An active DOE Q-level security clearance and an active SCI-level Clearance; or other equivalent active security clearance such as DOD Top Secret and SCI-level Clearance
