BGS is currently seeking a Research & Development Microwave and Sensor Engineer to join their dynamic team of professionals!

BGS is an engineering, technology, and security firm helping to advance missions of national importance for government programs, national laboratories, national security facilities, nuclear operations, and complex projects. We support clients at every stage, from strategic planning and program management to the execution of engineering and technical activities. We work to attract and retain the best talent because the best talent delivers the best results for our clients. Our capabilities are based on our experience in complex, secure, and highly regulated environments. We leverage our experience and capabilities to provide mission-driven solutions tuned to our client’s mission needs and strategic direction.

Are you looking for an opportunity to contribute to a highly motivated team focused on delivering qualified electronic components to a national security mission? The RF Microsystems department (5211) is seeking a mid-career R&D Microwave and Sensor Engineer to design, fabrication, test, qualification, and delivery of custom designed microwave components. These components enable military communication systems, SAR imaging and doppler radar, and tagging tracking and locating hardware. Our team is looking for a driven RF engineer capable of fundamental electromagnetic modeling, transistor level circuit simulation, and distributed element microwave PCB design. It is also important to understand electronic die characterization, RF test equipment, working knowledge of solder assembly, PCB development and fabrication. What your Job will Be like:

On any given day, you may be called on to:

Use circuit modeling tools to design analog or RF integrated circuit components for transceivers including analog, mixed-signal, and RF components.
Review/Write specifications for radar component design.
Specify fabrication steps to build custom designed printed circuit boards to test integrated circuit components.
Troubleshoot analog or RF circuits in an innovative electronics lab.
Characterize custom designed RF components and modules over voltage, temperature, and environmental stresses.
Contribute to developing new ideas and proposals for research activities for the department.
Use electronic equipment to measure slew rate, gain, stability, phase noise, jitter, s-parameters, power output, P1dB, PSat, noise figure, and modules.
Required Qualifications:

Masters in Electrical Engineering or Bachelor’s in Electrical Engineering plus four (4) years’ experience.
Radio Frequency design experience.
Electrical test and measure practices to protect sensitive devices and equipment to troubleshooting high frequency circuitry.
Use of RF test equipment such as spectrum analyzers, vector network analyzers, pulsed signal generators, oscilloscopes, and precision power supplies.
Ability to acquire and maintain a DOE Q clearance.
Ability and willingness to work a 2–3 years contract.

Preferred Qualifications:

Knowledge of designing distributed element active microwave circuits such as detectors, receivers, and power amplifiers.
Strong written and presentation skills to provide sponsors and vendors convincing evidence of quality designs.
Ability to work independently and within a multi-disciplinary team of peers to meet specifications.
Strong interpersonal skills which include teamwork, effective leadership, negotiation, delegation, and conflict resolution.
Understanding of fabrication process for printed circuit boards die attaching, wire bonding, and packaging advanced automated assembly processes for die and very small SMT components.
Strong electrical test and measure skills at the module and die level.
Experience developing complex microsystem solutions including analog, digital, RF, and other technologies modeling electromagnetic effects on and off die.
Active DOE Q or DOD TS clearance.

About Our Team:

The RF Microsystems department performs research, design, modeling, characterization, and qualification of RF microelectronics. We have a focus on efficient, high performance RF component design, electromagnetic modeling, as well as novel wireless sensor development. We have capabilities for developing prototypes to fully qualified hardware. We provide unique solutions to our customers in nuclear weapons, DoD, non-proliferation agencies, and subsystem departments (SAR, surety, & ISR). Our research interests include advanced RF sensors, low power communication devices, quantum computing electromagnetics, advanced radar component design, and next generation resonators for clocks unique to national security applications. Join this team to make a difference for our nation and work toward your individual goals.
