Job Description:

At Rydberg Technologies, we are known for our innovative and industry-leading atom-based quantum technology. We are looking a Systems Engineer with a strong background in electrical engineering, RF and photonics systems, product management experience with a creative drive to join our quantum R&D and product development team to realize next-generation quantum devices. Responsibilities will include executing system-level hardware and software engineering tasks, product development, from component-level development and integration to system performance testing and optimization, and manufacturing process development. -In this role you will work with complex systems, designing, developing, and integrating them at every stage of its life cycle. We seek high-caliber candidates who are solution-oriented, organized, self-motivated, give attention to the finest project details, and are experienced in project planning and execution.

Responsibilities may include, but are not limited to:

-System development, integration, simulation, analysis, and evaluation.

-Front-end and back-end software programming for device controls

-Electronics hardware design, integration, and testing.

-Algorithm development and implementation for RF surveillance, radio, and digital communications

As a systems engineer, you will have the opportunity to be involved in all the major phases of product development cycles including product definition, system development, software implementation as well as customer support. A successful candidate must be able to develop basic programs for controls and function implementation using programming languages such as Python, C, Visual Basic, and LabView, implement analog and digital signal acquisition and processing hardware, and be familiar with RF receiver and transceiver systems and architectures. The candidate is also desired to have a fundamental understanding of electronics, RF circuits, and wireless communication systems. Candidate is preferred to possess hands on skills in designing, integrating, and testing advanced electronics, RF test and measurement (vector signal analyzer, network analyzer, spectrum analyzer), and have the ability to perform hands-on disassembly and make experimental modifications to intricate hardware. This position will collaborate with the business team in supporting government and commercial customers and winning new customers.

Minimum Requirements:
- MSEE degree with 3+ years of industry experience, or Ph.D. degree
- Knowledge and experience in advanced programming using C, Python, VB, LabView.
- Basic knowledge in RF Rx and TxRx systems and architectures, software defined radio.
- Hands-on experience in test equipment (e.g. spectrum analyzers, vector network analyzers, signal generators, oscilloscopes, etc.).
- Understanding of wireless communication systems and protocols
- Strong written and verbal communication skills.

Preferred Qualifications:
- Solid understanding of RF hardware and system design including system-level signal Rx and Tx, digital and analog signal processing, grounding, shielding, isolation and electromagnetic interference mitigation.
- Understanding of RF link budgets, Rx gain line-up, Rx AGC operation and optimization techniques also against jamming.
- Ability to perform hands-on disassembly and make experimental modifications to intricate hardware
- Experience with system hardware integration of lasers, photonics, electro-optics and RF systems.
- Solid Knowledge in DSP, communication and information theory
- Skills in mathematics and algorithm development
- EM modelling (e.g. COMSOL) and engineering design (e.g. Solidworks)
- Knowledge in Microwave/EM theory and antenna theory
- PCBA engineering
- FPGA programming
- Product management
