RF Module Design Engineer
Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. at http://www.qualcomm.com/about/businesses/qct
Engineering – Hardware
California – San Diego
Qualcomm is a company of inventors that unlocked 5G ushering in an age of rapid acceleration in connectivity and new possibilities that will transform industries, create jobs, and enrich lives. But this is just the beginning. It takes inventive minds with diverse skills, backgrounds, and cultures to transform 5Gs potential into world-changing technologies and products. This is the Invention Age and this is where you come in.
In this role you will be working on advanced front-end modules for cellular/wireless applications as part of the Qualcomm’s RF Front-End (RFFE) Department. As RF Module Design Engineer, you will be responsible for design and development of the next generation of RFFE Modules (front end modules) for wireless that are using highly integrated RF integrated circuits (RFICs) & sophisticated filters. You translate ideas and challenging RF specifications into product solutions within an agreed time schedule. Your designs compete with other best-in-class solutions on a global level, and you know what properties are attractive for customers. The design work ranges from device level design towards EM design of passive structures as well as full end-to-end performance simulations (small and large signals) and verification of system parameters in top level benches. As a Design Engineer, you will play a significant role in designing competitive RFFE Module solutions and delivering commercial samples according agreed milestones with our customers.
All Qualcomm employees are expected to actively support diversity on their teams, and in the Company.
