A Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuit, unknown to most but you have taken the time to become a subject matter expert in it and can design.
If you have strong knowledge in MMIC Design to Senior level then please apply.

Senior/Principal MMIC Engineer

Job Description
A Senior/Principal MMIC Engineer is required to work on the design, development, integration and production support of microwave circuits, components and sub-systems in support of a range of advanced radar products being developed within the Radar delivery team. You will providing key technical expertise across all aspects of the product lifecycle, and over a wide portfolio of programmes.

Key Responsibility Areas
You will be responsible for developing MMIC circuits and Devices as part of the Radar Core Delivery Team.
This will include:
Microwave and MMIC hardware requirements capture and management
Concept development and architecting of MMICs and modules
Design of microwave circuits and modules using a staged design processes
Applying design for manufacture and design for test techniques
Preparation of manufacturing data pack
Technical support to foundries and engineering interface with manufacturing
Development test and design verification

Skills, Qualifications & Experience Required
You should have a degree (Hons or Doctorate) in Electronic Engineering or related Science (e.g. Physics) with specialisation in high frequency circuits and techniques.
You should have electronic skills compatible with their degree. Experience at a Senior Engineer level in design and test of microwave circuits and sub-systems is essential and you should be familiar with:
S-parameter manipulation
EM simulation
Non-linear circuit simulation & modelling
Matching network design
Microwave component selection
Requirements capture and management design for manufacture and cost
You should also have current practical experience in one or more of the following areas:
MMIC HPA design including high efficiency techniques
Microwave Sub-System design
MMIC vector control chip design
MMIC LNA design technology
Wideband switch and phase shifter techniques
Microwave test including knowledge of advanced calibration, de-embedding techniques and RFOW
Microwave GaAs/GaN MMIC or SiGe RFIC foundry technology
Modelling technical for non-linear devices
You should be familiar with current industry standard ECAD tools. It is desirable that the candidate has expert knowledge in one or more of AWR Microwave office, CST Microwave studio, Agilent ADS, or AWR Visual System Simulator.
You need to have good communication skills and the ability to work in a team. It is desirable for you to have team leader skills and experience of managing junior staff, budgets, cost reporting, project planning and subcontractor technical management.

Intrinsic Factors
This is mainly office based role using display screen equipment, however the successful candidate may also have to work in a development lab, production area and in a clean room environment. The successful candidate will be expected to work full time hours in a flexible and often demanding environment with tight deadlines. Some travel along with overnight stays will also be required. The nature of the programmes involving microwave design means that any candidate being considered for the position must be capable of achieving full SC security clearance and in addition the candidate will require access to caveated information such as UK eyes only and ITAR
