Now Hiring: Electrical or Radio Frequency Engineer – Wireless Sensors

Join the Sensors Magazine 2015 Sensor Engineering Team of the Year

Why you might consider applying for a job at Phase IV Engineering, even if you already have a job:

  • You want to join the recognized industry leader in innovation in a rapidly growing industry.  (Phase IV won the 2015 Sensor Engineering Team of the Year award at Sensors Expo last summer).
  • You want to see your efforts make a difference – on a daily basis.  You want to see your ideas quickly come to life and bear fruit.
  • You really are willing to trade the comforts of a safe, slow, bureaucratic corporation for the thrill of fast-paced innovation.
  • Our 15-person company won “Most Innovative Use of RFID” for a NASA project at the RFID trade show in May and was a finalist for “Product of the Year” at RFID Live and Sensors Expo.  Fortune 100 companies outsource their wireless sensor development to us to get leading edge designs done fast.
  • You want to work with a small team of smart and responsible people that can innovate ten times faster than most other companies.  We don’t want or need endless meetings and management red tape to get the job done.  Team members respect each other and lean on each other’s area of expertise.  We enforce the “no jerks allowed” rule.
  • You want to be part of a company that is fueling its rapid growth by continually developing and producing industry-leading products.  You are willing to deal with small company growing pains to get this.
  • You want to learn from your co-workers, who are experts in their speciality.
  • You want to work with a manager that is like-able, smart, open, honest, and a good mentor.

We have two electrical/RF engineers that are getting overloaded.  Our business is growing and we need  to grow our staff to match our growing business.

The areas we mainly need help are:

  • Requirements:
    • 5+ years of analog electrical engineering or radio frequency engineering. If you don’t have experience with radio frequency engineering, please explain in your cover letter why you feel are a good fit for this position.
    • Ability to take the lead role on taking a product specification and turning it into a working prototype and final product.
    • Works well with co-works and clients – a good listener and learner and a good teacher that earns mutual respect from co-workers.
    • Experience with digital design, firmware, and software is a plus, but not required.
    • A proven track record for making an extra effort to keep projects on track when unexpected events cause the project to slip late.
  • Preferred but not required:
    • Understanding of radio frequency engineering.
    • Experience with RF circuit design and antennas in the ISM bands
    • Experience with sensor circuits
    • Experience with ST Microprocessors
    • Some basic firmware experience
    • Low power design

We have a small staff, so you typically will be the only electrical engineer on a project.  Other electrical engineers on our staff will be available to help.  The ability to be self-directed is important.  We typically have over 10 different projects being worked-on by our small staff.  Our projects are constantly changing – providing a steady stream of interesting and challenging work that is often patentable.  As the Internet of Things gains momentum, the demand for our expertise is growing.

To apply, write us a cover letter that takes a few of these points above and explains why you are a good fit.  Send your cover letter and resume to [email protected].

Now Hiring:  Firmware Engineer – Wireless Sensor Systems

Phase IV is seeking a Firmware Engineer

  

Brief description of Phase IV Technology

Phase IV develops and manufactures wireless sensor systems based on passive and active radio frequency identification technology.   Phase IV product development activities include the following:

  • General analog and digital design
  • Radio frequency design over the spectrum of 125kHz to 2.5GHz
  • Embedded microcontrollers
  • Software development
  • Sensors, sensor interfacing and calibration
  • Extremely low power designs

Firmware Position Opening

Phase IV Engineering is growing and we are looking to add team members to our small group of highly-talented professionals. We are looking for engineering professionals that are (or want to be) leaders in their field and have a strong desire to join a small, non-bureaucratic company where your contributions make a daily impact on our company, and the satisfaction of our clients.
Companies from all around the world come to Phase IV for their wireless sensor designs — because we are the world’s leader in wireless sensor innovation. Maintaining our leadership position requires a talented and dedicated team that can effectively design and produce wireless sensors using the latest technology in fast-moving projects. Big company bureaucracy just isn’t an option for us to maintain our leadership position in this fast-paced, emerging market. You will spend your day working on innovative designs and coordinating with other engineers on the team — not in meetings. Our project managers play a “bridge role” between our clients and our engineering team to define “do-able” innovative sensors — then pass the clearly-defined customer requirements to the engineering team to develop. Our engineering teams typically must utilize state of the art components or patent-able approaches to meet the requirements. The environment is truly challenging, can require extra effort, and is very very rewarding (for the right type of person). If you want to trade the security and slow-moving-comfort of a big company for fast-moving, high-innovation environment where you see your contributions become industry-leading designs on a daily basis — please contact us.
Our hiring process is non-bureaucratic too. We have several openings and we know that it is likely that the right person may not fit perfectly into the job description “box” that we define. Take a look at what we are looking for and let us know how you could help. Let us know why Phase IV is the right fit for you and for us. We understand that the right type of person will have a strong desire and drive to “fill in the knowledge gaps” to make the jump to industry. We are open-minded and we will consider all levels of experience from “I’ve done that may times before” to “I will make a major extra effort to learn the new skills I need to quickly become effective”.
Target Requirements:
• Design experience with ST Micro processors, PIC processors, or similar technology.
• Experience with low-power designs.
• Experience with low-power radio frequency (RF) designs.
• Experience with RFID readers and tags.
• Experience with RF protocols.
• New project time/cost estimations.
• Experience that extends outside of firmware to also include some work with hardware and software.
• Firmware engineering management experience (a plus).
