Position Description

Dynetics, a wholly owned subsidiary of Leidos, is seeking a talented Senior Electrical Engineer - RF Hardware Design to join a diverse team to create unique solutions for complex problems. With offices across the United States engaging in the defense, space, cyber and commercial fields, Dynetics provides responsive, cost-effective engineering, scientific and IT solutions.

The Product Engineering Department is a design-focused group of engineers specializing in advanced hardware systems. The individual selected for this position will be a design engineer with demonstrated experience leading inter-disciplinary teams to develop complex RF sensors. The engineer will work closely with hardware integrated into a diverse range of aerospace and military systems including manned/unmanned ground/air vehicles, missiles, defensive radars, and space systems.

The Senior Electrical Engineer will be expected to execute in a fast-paced, small team environment through all phases of the hardware life cycle from conceptual development and detailed design through manufacturing, qualification testing, and post-delivery support. The engineer should have demonstrated experience with the design and implementation of power amplifiers, low noise amplifiers, mixers, filters, signal synthesis, PIN diode switching, and analog-to-digital conversion in complex Radar, EW, and communications systems across several high frequency bands (L-band, S-band, C-band, X-band, Ku-band, Ka-band). Specific R&D expertise in low phase noise, miniature high power PA design, and high bandwidth operation for advanced radar and EA developments is a plus. The candidate should be able to understand and model the theoretical operation of these systems and balance tradeoffs of multiple characteristics to reach an optimal design. The candidate should also be familiar with RF PCB design and packaging practices to fully support the solutions that Dynetics is developing.

With a product focus, the individual is expected to actively partner with other engineers, project managers, technicians and the customer to develop solutions that adhere to a diverse set of requirements. Additionally, the engineer will support resolution of technical issues that are discovered during the manufacture and test of deliverable hardware. This will include troubleshooting board-level issues, assessing failures for root cause, and identifying corrective actions.

The ideal candidate will thrive in a learning environment that encourages leadership and technical growth.
