Boost your RF Career. Were now hiring an RF LNA (Low Noise Amplifier) Design Engineer for our Automotive R&D team based in the Detroit / Ann Arbor area. You will be responsible for new technology and solution development for automotive antenna, and associated Low Noise Amplifiers (LNA's), Antenna Elements, and related automotive RF products for infotainment, and satellite radio applications.
Though this is within our Automotive sector, we May consider LNA expertise outside of the automotive industry, such as from a Chip Manufacturer, though this is working at the "Board level".
Your background with small LNA’s and antennas related to consumer electronics, cellular, medical devices, or of course automotive, coupled with LNA design, and the understanding of the EMI / EMC issues associated with small packaged applications and in a highly electronically complex environment is key.
- This is NOT an entry level job
- Full authorization to work for any employer in America is required
To be considered, you should have the following essential duties and responsibilities:
- Design and developing Low Noise Amplifier (LNA) designs and integrate them with antennas/modules for our automotive applications. We will consider you if working for a Chip Manufacturer
- To explore cutting-edge technologies and track and monitor industry design trends
- To develop innovative solutions with challenging technical and product requirements
- To cooperate with other internal functions to ensure your design can be implemented in leading /cutting edge products successfully
- To draft technical specifications, design guidelines and related documents for new solutions.
- To meet with customers and provide technical support for customer design activities
- Some travel will be required, including occasional international travel to Europe and Asia. Approximately 10% of total work time may be dedicated to business travel.
We have a state of the art facility, where you will have creative freedom, be recognized for your accomplishments, and rewarded by your efforts.

MUST POSSESS REQUIREMENTS:
A Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering is required. An advanced degree in electromagnetics highly preferred. Candidates with degrees in other engineering disciplines will be considered, if coupled with significant experience in automotive RF or LNA designs.
A minimum of 10 years of industry experience within the automotive RF industry, with at least 5 of those years in LNA designs
- This position requires significant experience with LNA circuit design, board layouts, prototype construction, lab and field testing, troubleshooting, etc. specific to the automotive industry
- Experience with bi-directional amplifiers, power circuits, and RF matching/tuning for active antennas in an automotive application
- Must have good understanding of electromagnetic theory, microwave and some antenna designs
- Must be able to create LNA schematics and board layouts using appropriate software tools
- Significant knowledge of AM/FM, SDARS, GNSS, RKE, GSM/UMTS/LTE, 802.11, Bluetooth, and DSRC, including the corresponding system level specifications
- Proficiency, hands-on skills with RF simulation tools
- Must be able to build, test, and tune small RF circuits in a laboratory environment
- Experience with on-vehicle antenna measurement and field reception testing is a plus
- Experience of tackling key technical problems or innovative designs independently
- Proactive and self-motivated
- Curiosity and sensitivity for science, technology and engineering are essential
- This position will require a variety of skills and cover many varied tasks; therefore flexibility, an ability to work independently, and move “outside the comfort zone” will be essential to success
